Workshop in Somatic Psychotherapy

Somatic Imagery to Relieve Stress & Anxiety

Overview

Research shows that interactive styles of somatic imagery are effective tools for relieving stress and anxiety. By first establishing safety and building inner resources, the client is then guided to bring mindful attention to physical symptoms of anxiety and stress. This interactive process reveals ways for the therapist to modulate the experience while also allowing the client to gain insight into the source of the anxiety and stress, allowing for healthy choice and change.

Workshop in The Practical Side of Counseling

What's Missing from Your Client Charts: Writing Great Progress Notes and Treatme

Overview

Many therapists think of their progress notes as a completely confidential means to keep track of client’s history and treatment.  In reality, we should be writing notes as if someone else might read them. While we may shiver at the idea of an insurance plan, ethics committee, or licensing board requesting to review a client’s chart, this is happening more frequently, even to therapists who don’t work with insurance.  In these cases, well-written records can be a therapist’s best defense. This new workshop will address what EVERY therapist should know about client charts and notes. Attendees will learn how to efficiently write notes that not only assist in treatment, but that meet the expectations of state law, professional ethics, licensing boards, and insurance plans.

Workshop in Queer Consciousness

Therapy with Transgender and Nonbinary Clients

Overview

This 2-day seminar course will provide students with a brief but solid foundation in clinical therapy with transgender and nonbinary clients. We will cover terminology, pronouns, the damage caused by misgendering, and how to show respect and allyship with gender nonconforming individuals. We will discuss ethical issues in working with this population, looking at the history of intense pathologization of trans people, and discussing the importance of working from a gender affirmative, trauma-informed, advocacy-based approach. Diagnosis and assessment based on the DSM-5 and the WPATH Standards of Care v. 7 will be reviewed, including the requirements for writing gender reassignment surgery recommendation letters. Decision-making around hormones and hormone blockers for children and adolescents will be discussed. The course will include in-depth exercises and clinical vignettes on a variety of clinical topics common to trans and nonbinary clients, such as gender-based body dysphoria, lack of mirroring, internalized negative self-image, and crisis interventions for suicidality when locked facilities are frequently gender-segregated and may even be unsafe. We will cover techniques for treating the complex PTSD that frequently results from experiences of chronic societal oppression, discrimination, harassment, and threats of violence, identifying advocacy opportunities where possible in order to protect trans children and adolescents. Lastly, a panel of gender diverse guest speakers will join us to share personal stories and answer questions from the audience.

Workshop in The Practical Side of Counseling

The New DSM-5: Changes You Need to Know for Your Practice

Overview

CE Credit: 4 Hours
APA, BBS, BRN

This advanced course will introduce clinicians to the changes in the DSM-5 and also provide an understanding of the structure of ICD and the use of ICD codes. New regulations require that clinicians use the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD) rather than DSM codes on federal documents (VA Medical Centers, Medicare, et), and insurance companies and other agencies are likely to follow suit. The ICD section on mental disorders and DSM-V overlap, but also have some important differences. In this course, participants will learn the changes in DSM-5, the conceptual and clinical implications, and how to understand and apply both DSM and ICD codes.

Instructor: Rhoda Olkin, PhD
Rhoda Olkin, PhD, is a licensed psychologist and Distinguished Professor at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, where she teaches psychopathology and diagnosis, along with updates to each DSM.
