"Therapy of the Absurd": An Introduction to Play Therapy

Speaker: Michael Whitehead
CE Credits: 1.0

This course is provided by the Systemic Therapy Across the Lifespan Network; find out more and how to join at www.aamft.org/tin.


Play Therapy is an evidence-based intervention method that utilizes the natural language of children to accomplish therapeutic goals. The roots of Family Therapy included children in most, if not all, sessions to achieve the results of systemic therapy. A pioneer in family therapy, Dr. Nathan Ackerman, stated that, "without engaging the children in a meaningful interchange across the generations, there can be no family therapy." Family therapists often get little-to-no training in how to involve children in family therapy. This webinar will introduce Systemic Play Therapy as one intervention to use to start including children in family therapy sessions.

A Daughter Who Needs a Mother

This session, recorded in 1991 by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and digitally remastered in 2009, features Harry Aponte conducting a live, unedited therapy session with a family. The featured family is an African American mother and her children struggling with poverty and a legacy of deprivation. The session is a demonstration of the Eco-System Model, incorporating class, racial and ethnic experiences of both the family and therapist. Mother lacks confidence and skill to parent her children, forcing her 14-year-old daughter to do so. After running away from home to pursue the attention of older men, her actions culminate in a suicide gesture. An experience is created for the mother to reach out to her daughter. Approx. Time: 87 minutes

A brief overview of the disease process and interventions that may slow the progress of the disease will also be given. Suggestions for life style changes to prevent Alzheimer’s disease will be summarized. 1 hour of continuing education is available.

3. Understand how to minimize the chances of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.

Part Two:

The percentage of Americans aged 65 and older is estimated to increase to over one in five within the next ten years. However, under the current regulations, these Americans are denied Medicare insurance coverage for over 40% of the therapy providers in the country. In a recent study conducted by AAMFT, over 85% of Americans aged 65 and older surveyed indicated that inclusion of LMFTs and LMHCs as Medicare providers would help seniors.

Join AAMFT for this special bonus interactive advocacy session where we highlight other findings from the study and together, we take action urging our members of Congress to ask for their support in LMFT inclusion in Medicare. .5 hours of continuing education is available.

Learning Objectives:

In this session, participants will:

1. Learn more about the outcomes of a recent study of older Americans and their attitudes, needs, and encountered barriers to mental health treatment.

2. Find out the most self-identified clinical issues facing older Americans today.

3. Learn more about potential inclusion of MFTs in Medicare.

4. Understand policy advocacy for the MFT profession.

Addressing Suicide among LGBTQ+ Youth

CE credits: 1 Speaker: Judy Russon

Suicide is a growing public health issue among adolescents and young adults. Due to discrimination, stigma, and experiences of rejection, LGBTQ+ youth are disproportionately affected by suicide. While the majority of LGBTQ+ youth are healthy, resilient and have strong support systems, many experience significant distress without support. The purpose of this webinar is to provide family therapists with an introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to approach this clinical population with a balance of sensitivity, humility, and self-assuredness. First, two theories will be presented to explain the disproportionate rates of suicide among LGBTQ+ youth. Next, a brief review of prominent risk and protective factors will be described. Finally, treatment approaches, designed or adapted for LGBTQ+ youth, will be discussed and illustrated with case examples. Special attention will be paid to systemic models targeting suicidality.

Adolescent and Family Therapy: Evidence Based Treatment

CE Credits: 4.50 Speaker(s): Howard A. Liddle, EdD Therapists often view evidence-based therapies with skepticism or trepidation. Some consider these approaches as irrelevant to real world clinical work. Addressing these issues head-on and in a practical way, this presentation describes a modular approach to understanding and using an evidence-based treatment. Using a new training video, the presentation illustrates the four core modules of multidimensional family therapy (MDFT), an evidence-based approach for adolescents. We cover the needed knowledge base, change theory, clinical methods, and desirable during-treatment processes within the adolescent, parent, family, and extrafamilial modules of MDFT.

At home Series: Historical Trauma Theory

CE: 1.00
Speakers: Do Hee Kim and Jonathan Appel

Interpersonal and intergenerational neurobiology can illuminate the development of emotional health within a social and cultural context. In recent years, Historical Trauma Theory has proposed that populations historically subjected to long-term, mass trauma—(such as slavery, war, genocide, and other forms of social oppression) exhibit a higher prevalence of health issues even across several generations removed from the original trauma(s). Understanding how historical trauma might influence the current mental health status of racial/ethnic populations may provide new directions and insights for understanding, treating and preventing mental health issues. This presentation will examine the model of Historical Trauma Theory and the research support to date. This framework will be applied to Family Therapy practice as well as research implications.
