What you need to know to intervene with

this growing problem

3 CEUs:  Counselors, Social Workers and Nurses

9:00AM—12:15PM

Registration 8:30 AM – 9:00 AM

DESCRIPTION:

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any brain disorder.  Treatment is difficult to find, expensive, and long term.  Most people never get the treatment they need.  Access for care often starts with a therapist willing to learn enough about eating disorders to accurately assess the problem and intervene appropriately.  This workshop will provide an overview of this spectrum disorder, giving you the right questions to ask, how to ask them, and what to do once you learn your client is at risk for or has an eating disorder or disordered eating. 

CEU OBJECTIVES:

·         Describe the scope of the problem and identify 3 different types of eating disorders

·         Describe how to assess any client for an eating disorder

·         Discuss intervention techniques for clients with eating disorders

·         List levels of care for treatment, as well as, how and where to access them

Integrating Myers-Briggs Type into

 Treatment Planning and Counseling

 

Bob Armstrong, M.A., M.Div., LPCC

Friday, April 19, 2013

6 CEUs:  Counselors, Social Workers and Nurses

9:00AM—4:30PM

Registration 8:30 AM – 9:00 AM

(Lunch, MBTI profile, and materials provided)

Participants will complete an online MBTI profile prior to the workshop

 

Fee: $125 / Student rate $85

DESCRIPTION: 

Too often personality type is applied as a label to ‘box’ clients into a particular style of interaction. However, the sequencing of preferences and developmental dimensions of type provide marvelous tools to customize treatment plans and counseling. While the counselor’s own personality type will affect their approach, building a treatment plan with the client’s preferences in mind can broaden one’s range of interventions and clarify an approach which will be most accessible for the clients.

CEU OBJECTIVES:

  •     Assess the process of taking the instrument and verifying type with clients.
  • Clarify the role and influence of dominant, auxiliary, tertiary and inferior preferences. 
  • Recognize the developmental nature of a client’s personality development.
  • Learn to assess type development and flexibility in clients.
  • Be able to explain to clients the value of developing less preferred functions in positive interactions.
  • Be able to describe the negative impact of stress on flexibility and adaptability in applying the functions.
  • Develop strategies for integrating type into treatment planning and counseling.

Untangling Crossed Wires in the Communication of Feelings:
Implications for the treatment of individuals, couples, and families.


Bob Armstrong, M.A., M.Div, LPCC

Friday, February 22, 2013

6 CEUs: Counselors, Social workers and Nurses

9.00 am - 4.30 pm Registration 8:30 AM – 9:00 AM

Lunch provided—see registration form for options

Fee: $99 / Student rate $69 

DESCRIPTION:

Some of the most fulfilling moments of life are when we make secure emotional connections with other people. When we try but fail to make those connections, it can be devastating—especially with those who are close to us. Emotions are meant to signal to others what we are feeling and prompt a fitting response that makes connection possible. But what if someone has gotten those wires crossed and doesn’t know how to recognize or respond? This is commonly the core problem in marital and family conflict. In this seminar, we will review current research on the brain and emotional processes, explore the landscape of emotion and interpersonal relations, and introduce tools for untangling the crossed wires in emotional interaction. 

CEU OBJECTIVES:

 • Become aware of current research in brain functioning and emotions. (Including Daniel Coleman on Social Intelligence, Paul Ekman on Emotions and facial expressions, Daniel Siegel: Interpersonal Neuro-Biology, and Leslie Greenberg & Susan Johnson: Emotionally Focused Therapy).

• Be able to describe the four parts of an emotion, distinguish between feelings & moods, and name the six universally recognized emotions.

• Recognize the role of emotions in fostering effective interpersonal interaction (contingent communication, eliciting responses, and mutual validation).

• Be able to explain how Insight and Empathy are essential capacities for interpersonal relationships. • Understand the value of the Meta-Emotions Interview (Gottmann) in assessing couple interactional style.

• Practice using the Meta-Emotions Interview Protocol with another person to clarify the way emotions function for them in a key relationship.

Understanding & Treating Spiritual Abuse

Friday, January 25, 2012

DESCRIPTION:

Spiritual abuse is not just relevant for those who have been members of cults—it is a very real condition that often occurs in individuals who have been abused, or who struggle with addiction issues. In this workshop, the theories of spiritual abuse—or the use of God or religion as tools to gain power and control by the abuser—will be explained and explored. Case studies, discussion, and other experiential activities will help audience members understand why the construct of spiritual abuse is relevant to clinical practice

CEU OBJECTIVES:

• Define spiritual abuse from a pastoral, developmental, and clinical perspective

• Describe how spiritual abuse affects identity development in clients

• Identify the common themes amongst religious denominations & spiritual practices that have led to abuse experiences in individuals

• Assess for commonly encountered negative cognitions acquired by those who have been spiritually abused in the context of clinical symptomology

• Develop and implement treatment plans that are sensitive to the needs of clients who have experienced spiritual abuse

• Identify components of healthy spirituality that will assist in the recovery process

• Determine one’s own strengths and weaknesses in clinically addressing spiritual abuse and its various clinical manifestations

• Access the best possible referrals for enhanced client care

God, Sex, and Desires: Understanding the Heart of Men

Saturday January 19, 2013

8:30 AM to 12:30 PM (General Session)

2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (Leadership Session - optional)

(Doors Open at 8:00am)

Problems with pornography are growing among Christians. Studies show that over 50 percent of evangelical pastors report they viewed pornography last year, and over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing pornography in the last year. These statistics are staggering, and the resulting losses are devastating. Men are losing marriages, friendships, jobs, and ministries, along with their reputations and self-respect.

Michael Cusick shows how the root of the problem is a spiritual emptiness that can’t be filled by sexual gratification. That hollowness is a reminder of the human heart’s deepest desire: “to know God in the center of our being and to offer ourselves for the sake of others.” Going beyond the “just don’t do it” strategy of sin management, Cusick offers transformative soul care as a path out of sexual compulsion.

Cusick has been down this road himself and knows how difficult it is. “That secret, hidden place of your greatest struggle, failure or shame is exactly where God wants to meet you,” Cusick says. “I should know. It happened to me. But most men struggling have been fighting a losing battle. They have resigned themselves to cycles of defeat, believing deep down that this is as good as it gets.”

But it does get better, Cusick says: “I can’t think of any more pertinent theological truth to share with the man trapped in sexual compulsion than that God has dealt with sin in your heart. And having a new heart changes everything.”

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Michael John Cusick is an ordained minister, spiritual director, and Licensed Professional Counselor who has experienced firsthand the restoring touch of God in a deeply broken life and marriage. Having served in ministry for over twenty five years–including youth and college ministry, Michael’s passion is to connect life’s broken realities with the reality of the gospel.

In addition to leading retreats and equipping Christian organizations around the world, Michael currently serves as an adjunct professor at Denver Seminary. He holds an MA in Biblical Counseling from Colorado Christian University and an MA from the College of Education at the University of Denver. Michael lives with his wife Julianne, and two children, in Littleton, Colorado where he enjoys the Rocky Mountains, and a host of other outdoor activities with friends and family.

"IS IT JUST ME?"

Insights and Practical Tools for Addressing Compassion Fatigue

Friday, February 17, 2012

9:00 am – 4:30 pm

6 CEUs
This CEU meets the requirements for 6 CEU’s for Counselors with Supervisor Designation.
It also meets 3 CEU requirements for Ethics.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
The high cost of caring is a reality that is often not fully recognized or appreciated, especially among caregivers themselves. Counselors, pastors and health care professionals engaged in relieving the suffering of others often take on burdens too heavy to bear alone. Mental, emotional and spiritual “stress fractures” can develop suddenly or over time effecting our ethical choices as well as personal, professional and supervisory relationships. This workshop combines a relaxed educational environment with both clinical and faith based perspectives on assessment, prevention and treatment of compassion fatigue, secondary traumatization and burnout. Through lecture, discussion, video vignettes and experiential exercises, we will examine the effects of care giving on our personal and professional lives including the impact on ethical decision-making and the supervisor/supervisee relationship. Attention will be given to developmental career stages, self awareness and self care strategies including the role of self compassion. A limited number of participants affords a safe place for discussion, reflection and professional development around a topic that impacts the “best and brightest” among us!

CEU OBJECTIVES, participants will:
1. Differentiate burnout, secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue
2. Identify early warning signs and red flags in the compassionate caregiver including ethical “potholes” on path of career development
3. Explain critical factors from latest brain research
4. Provide tools for self-assessment

5. Describe prevention as well as recovery plans, including faith based approaches
6. Discover and practice self care strategies, including shifting from sympathetic to parasympathetic nervous system
7. Illustrate supervisor/supervisee dynamics impacted by compassion fatigue and identify mutually supportive strategies for helpful professional development
8. Provide opportunity for professional interac
tion of relevant experiences and tools for reducing caregiver stress
