Exploring Experiences of Diversity and Multiculturalism

CE: 4.00
Speaker: Jennifer Torres

Part 1: Social inequalities result in health disparities, relational conflict, and assaults to personal dignity. These experiences influence the lives of therapists and clients who come from diverse contexts and enter a space of healing together. This webinar will explore how larger systems of power impact the therapeutic relationship and influence the interactions that take place in the clinical context. Participants will develop an awareness for the cultural differences that influence the lived experiences of both therapists and their clients.

Part 2: After understanding how experiences of power, privilege, and oppression affect the clinical relationship, participants will learn how to implement interventions that are culturally sensitive and responsive. Additionally, participants will explore the complex ethical issues and challenges that become salient when delivering interventions from a culturally-informed lens. Participants will learn how to integrate a multicultural perspective into their practice, and engage with clients from a social justice-oriented framework.

Skurtu, MFT This webinar will help clinicians gain a basic understanding of Kink and Polyamorous lifestyles, a discussion about sexual ethics, and suggestions for how clinicians can offer the best quality care to these clients. In this presentation, Angela Skurtu will explore alternative lifestyles as a healthy form of sexual expression. In addition, she will cover issues such as coercion/manipulation, abuse versus sexual health, and how to help clients who are even considering such a life choice. Angela will discuss how clinicians can develop an accepting attitude. She also wants to help clinicians understand the topic enough that if they could see abuse coming, they could respectfully address this with a client who is a proponent of this lifestyle.

How to Resolve Toxic Discourse

Speaker: Michael Gottlieb Today's increasingly partisan political climate and the division it sometimes engenders creates unique challenges for family members who find themselves on opposite sides of a particular issue. Mental health professionals must navigate between and among disputing family members, while managing their own views, thoughts, and feelings in the therapy room. While Washington DC might not seem an obvious source for guidance on this particular topic, those who live and work there must navigate these challenges daily-often hourly-as they engage with friends, colleagues, and family on all sides of a particular issue. What can be learned from that experience? And how can it be applied to therapeutic practice? No Handouts provided.

Implementation Science for Systemic Family Therapists

CE: 1.75 Speaker: Alicia Bunger, Ph.D. *From a previously recorded webinar. Many of the most effective interventions never become integrated in real world practice. The interdisciplinary field of implementation science investigates strategies for moving evidence-based interventions into routine care, and improves outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. This workshop introduces key terms, perspectives, research questions, and design issues in the field. Because of the complex system and organizational settings for implementing interventions, we will cover pragmatic designs that balance internal and external validity when testing implementation strategies. The workshop will also include discussion of critical topics and future directions for expanding implementation science in systemic family therapy. *No handouts provided*

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.

This webinar will examine the challenges that couples face in each of these scenarios and what we as practitioners can do to validate these losses for our clients. We will examine the problem systemically, look at assessment and intervention and discuss the best practices of helping our clients cope with these kinds of losses.
