Usefulness of Non-Presenting Symptoms

This session, recorded in 1986 by the American Association for marriage and Family Therapy and digitally remastered in 2009, features Carl Whitaker conducting a live, unedited therapy session with a family. The featured family includes a grandmother, mother of two preadolescent sons. The women are recent widows and the boys were abused by their deceased alcoholic father. Through pushing and then drawing the family in, intergenerational rules that hypnotize people to act in destructive ways are searched out. Themes of suicidal behavior, depression, unresolved grief and obesity become apparent as the family is challenged to deal with issues in a healthier fashion. Approx. Time: 130 minutes

Whose Cross Cultural Competency Is It Anyway?

CE Credits: 1.00 Speaker(s): Manijeh Daneshpour, PhD Debates about multicultural competency, ethics of care, and social justice have proliferated throughout our mental health field and have become cliché conversations. Awareness of these issues serves as a way to evaluate the relationship between the ethics of cultural competence and normative Western mental health ethics.Ê We rarely explicitly state the essential principles of cultural competency but in essence they are: (1) acknowledgement of the importance of culture in people's lives, (2) respect and appreciation for cultural differences, and (3) minimization of any negative consequences of cultural differences. Culturally competent academicians, researchers, and clinicians must promote these principles by learning about culture, embracing pluralism, and proactive accommodation.

This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of working with nonbinary clients. This will include: an initial brief introduction to terminology, the current WPATH Standards of Care, and dominant treatment protocols for nonbinary clients in the US. We will discuss the issues that nonbinary clients and their families might bring to therapy and how to address these competently and systemically. The role that family therapists might play in the care of nonbinary clients and their families will be addressed, including the role that LMFTs might play in supporting clients who may pursue medical or legal transition processes. The importance of liaising with other providers, such as medical providers, will also be addressed. Participants will be invited to reflect on their own gender histories, identities, and expressions. Ethical issues in relation to power, dominant discourses of gender. and the historical oppression and marginalization of nonbinary people will be woven through the webinar and will be addressed from an intersectional perspective.
