Helping MFTs Understand and Treat Chronic Pain

Millions of adults suffer from daily chronic pain. This impacts not only the person with pain, but the entire family system. There is a very strong bi-directional relationship between chronic pain and mental health. The bio-psycho-social model of chronic pain makes it clear that the most effective pain treatment uses a behavioral approach. Family systems approaches can improve quality of life for all involved. This webinar will examine the current model of chronic pain and explain why opioids commonly makes pain worse and why behavioral therapy is the evidence-based treatment of choice. This will be followed by a summary of the behavioral therapy techniques that will reduce pain and improve quality of life in those who hurt.

Integrative Model of Affair Recovery

Credits: 1 Speakers: Tina Timm, PhD and Adrian Blow, PhD

Infidelity is one of the most difficult presenting issues in couple therapy because of the emotional intensity, the complicated systemic issues, and the lack of evidence-based treatments on which to rely. There is evidence that infidelity has a significant attachment basis, and certainly can be conceptualized as an attachment injury in relationships. The presenters will describe a relational approach to treatment based in post-traumatic growth theory and attachment theory, showing how couples can grow stronger after the experience. The emphasis will be upon providing clinicians with key principles that are necessary for working with these couples and will integrate the latest research on mindfulness and self-compassion to help rebuild trust, foster secure attachment, and restore a connecting sexual relationship.

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS): An Advanced Overview

Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) occurs in babies that experience prenatal exposure to opioids. The baby is simply exposed to opioids in the womb during the course of pregnancy. As a result, the infant is born already addicted to whatever substances that the mother consumed during her pregnancy. These substances could be prescription (e.g., methadone and oxycodone) or illegal (e.g., heroin) in nature. When the baby no longer receives the drug after birth, withdrawal symptoms such as vomiting, seizures, sensory sensitivity, and loss of weight become apparent. This syndrome can have both short- and long-term developmental consequences. Concerns of NAS have increased with the opioid addiction crisis in the United States. In fact, research suggests somewhere between 25% and 30% of American pregnant women are prescribed opioids like OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin. This does not even account for instances where illegal drugs are consumed by pregnant women. Fueled by the consumption of these drugs, NAS has become one of the largest public health problems in the United States. For example, cases of NAS skyrocketed by approximately 400% from 2000 to 2012 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). This leaves 3.9 out of every 1000 delivery admissions in the United States with NAS. This training is designed to increase awareness of NAS and prepare attendees to address this public health crisis in the field. Specifically, the training will define NAS, explore the developmental and behavioral health consequences of NAS, discuss screening and assessment options, and identify evidence-based treatments and interventions (including systemic family therapy) for the baby and mother. Medical, mental health, child welfare, legal, and criminal justice professionals will benefit from this training.
