Responding to Uncommon Valor: MFTs Serving Military Families

CE Credits: 1.00 Speaker(s): Frank N. Thomas, PhD; Michael D. Howard, EdD Public support of US military personnel has always transcended politics. But the costs to those who serve in uniform are often high, and the effects of war, deployment, and separation from families and communities are extensive. In this plenary, Drs. Frank Thomas and Michael Howard examine the military culture and its distinctive structure and language. The focus of their exchanges will also address the physical, emotional, moral, and relational injuries military personnel experience and how MFTs can effectively respond. Finally, conversation will center on how MFTs as systems thinkers are uniquely qualified to positively impact military personnel and their families beyond the therapy room as healing influences in the community in addition to those seeking services.

Special Education and Student Achievement: A Systemic Lens

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Kathleen C. Laundy, PsyD Participants will be introduced to the value of systemic training as it relates to special education. Participants will learn about individual, family, school, community and cultural influences that can affect students with special needs over time. A model called the Longitudinal Overview of Growth in Systems (LOGs) will be employed to help guide assessment and understanding of the wide range of services that MFTs can provide to administrators, teachers, students and families in schools. Systems trained therapists provide a context-rich set of services to special education school teams, and can offer continuity to schools, students and their families across time. Early systems-based support can more comprehensively identify students in need, build needed social and emotional services to boost student resiliency, and can prevent out-of-district placements and other costly outcomes.

The role that family therapists might play in the care of trans and non-binary clients and their families will be addressed, including the role that LMFTs might play in supporting clients who may pursue social, medical or legal transition processes.
