Summer Sexuality Series: Attachment without Attraction: Understanding Lost Sexual Attraction in Couples (June 5-June 26)

Upcoming Virtual Workshop:

Summer Sexuality Series: Attachment without Attraction: Understanding Lost Sexual Attraction in Couples

Suzanne

with Suzanne Iasenza, PhD

Wednesdays: June 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2024; 1:45pm-3:15pm

This event is approved for Approved for 6 AASECT CE + 6 NYS CE Credits

One of the most perplexing clinical moments for patients and therapists is a declaration of an absence of sexual attraction by one or both partners. Unlike sexual desire which can wax and wane over time, sexual attraction is often experienced as fixed and unchangeable. What is a therapist to do? How do we best understand the vicissitudes of sexual attraction over the lifespan of couples including the absence of attraction from the beginning of relationships to its decline over time. 

Utilizing a narrative approach which integrates psychodynamic, systems, and cognitive behavioral elements, Dr. Iasenza will discuss assessment and treatment techniques that help identify and transform intrapsychic, interpersonal, developmental, and environmental factors that contribute to this emotionally challenging presenting problem.

About the Presenter: 

Suzanne Iasenza is a practicing psychologist who specializes in and writes on topics such as human sexuality, sex therapy for individuals and couples, sexual orientation and gender identity. She teaches at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, Adelphi University’s Derner Institute Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis, the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, the Family Institute of Westchester, and the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy in NYC, where she co-founded the Sex Therapy Training Program (STP).

She offers study/consultation groups and individual consultation for mental health professionals. She has a private practice in psychotherapy and sex therapy in New York.

A Regenerative and Compassionate Approach to Working with Substance-Using Clients:

Harm reduction techniques, addiction medicine, and methods for supporting friends and family members assisting impacted loved ones

with Jen Levy, Ph.D, Sonya Lazarevic, MD, and Nicole Kosanke, Ph.D

Saturday, May 4th, 2024 at 10am-2:45pm on Zoom

Approved for 4.5 CE Credits!

This is an interactive, multi-presenter day of programming for clinicians working with individuals and families with substance use challenges. This workshop will provide the essentials of a harm reduction/mindfulness approach with Jen Levy, Ph.D., how to use addiction and functional medicine with Sonya Lazarevic, MD, and treatment approaches for families and loved ones of those impacted by substance use issues with Nicole Kosanke, Ph.D.

Addressing Addictive Issues from a Harm Reduction Framework

Following an overview of the current status of the addiction treatment field, there will be a discussion of a harm reduction-informed approach that encompasses a range of positive change goals. Case presentations will address both the underlying meaning and function of addictive issues, along with offering mindfulness-based skills to support the change process. The impact of trauma on the development and treatment of addictive issues will be explored as well. Participants will learn practical skills to work with cravings and reduce risk through guided practices that can be applied in a range of clinical settings.

Conventional and Integrative Approaches in Addiction Psychiatry

The discussion will outline medications prescribed in stages of use, from abstinence to harm reduction, focusing on the most common substances of use. An integrative approach will be mapped out, including layers of care from a functional and regenerative approach. Psychotherapists' role as critical pieces in front-line engagement will be explored. A case example will be used to encourage an interactive discussion.

The Invitation To Change Approach: How to Help a Loved One Change

Being in a close relationship with someone who is using substances is often stressful and confusing. Outlining the Invitation to Change approach will highlight three major areas of research-based strategies for having a positive impact on a loved one: 1) understanding motivation and the change process in a constructive way, 2) using positive reinforcement and effective communication tools, and 3) practicing skills of self-awareness/compassion. Participants will learn practical applications within these categories for how clients can take care of themselves while also influencing a loved one in positive ways.

The Challenges of Working with Mixed-Status Immigrant Couples: Using IFS and Relational Approaches

with Rosa Bramble Caballero, LCSW-R

Saturday, April 6th from 10am-1pm on Zoom and in-person at ICP

 

Offered in-person and virtually via Zoom!
Approved for 3 CE Credits!

Immigration into the United States is fraught with challenges and traumatic experiences, largely unaddressed by couple’s therapy. The current anti-immigrant, socio-political atmosphere contributes to a climate where immigrants are seen as undesirable, and a threat to the economy, safety, and culture. Moreover, recent priorities for raids and deportation are affecting the everyday fabric of daily life for this population. Immigrant and mixed-status couples are experiencing traumatic stress affecting their relational dynamics.
The goal of the workshop is for participants to gain an understanding of how the IFS model provides the language and resources to help mixed-status couples heal the pre and post-migratory trauma. Through the use of case studies, the workshop will address the highly stressful and potentially traumatic experiences that immigrants undergo at different stages of the migration process, and IFS interventions that support the process of healing for the couple.

About Presenter: 

Rosa Maria Bramble Caballero, LCSW-R, is a Certified IFS Therapist. She’s the President of Caballero Consulting Services where she specializes in the treatment of trauma survivors. She is also L2 trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, and Coherent Breathing. She facilitates supervision, and workshops and provides organizational capacity building in the areas of migration trauma, diversity and inclusion, maternal infant health, community violence intervention, and vicarious traumatization. Rosa was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and is bilingual in Spanish-English.

Morning Presentation:

The Existential Scream

with Holly Levenkron and Response by Patricia Ticineto Clough

Presenters Holly Levenkron and Patricia Ticineto Clough

In the discussed vignettes, malignant narcissism and dissociation of anger and shame silence authentic aspects of the self, hindering the patient/analyst relationship. Amidst societal complexities like Class, Race, Immigration, and Cultural dislocation, emotional scars compel silence to maintain stability. We'll explore the necessity of disrupting this status quo for progress, enabling the expression and exploration of the “Existential Scream.”

Afternoon Presentation:

Creativity and the Queering of the Psychotherapeutic Space

with Brian Harris and Kristin Long

Using creative arts therapy techniques can be a powerful means of accessing unconscious material in the session space while also upsetting the traditional power dynamics of the therapist-patient dyad. This workshop will use clinical case material, active participant engagement, and contemporary theories to explore how creativity can enhance and ameliorate a verbal psychotherapy process. Come ready to physically engage, play, and grow.

Rewriting Family Stories:

Working with Countertransference in Eating Disorder Patients

Judith Ruskay Rabinor, PhD

Approved for 1 NYS CE credit

“I love my mother, but…” “My father, he wasn’t around much…” How many times have you heard these words from a client? Have these words ever echoed your feelings? Parent-child relationships remain a crucial focus in the treatment of eating disorders. As mental health professionals, we are trained to create treatment plans reflecting theoretical perspectives, yet family legacies are always present. Who you are as a person may be more important than what you think or what you think you think!  The stories we carry can consciously or unconsciously empower or derail us. This experiential workshop includes writing exercises, clinical case material, and discussion of countertransference. Come away more mindful of your family legacies. Sharing optional.

About the Presenter:
Judith Ruskay Rabinor, PhD is a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist, author, speaker, writing coach and consultant based on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. It is recommended you read her recent memoir The Girl in the Red Boots: Making Peace with my Mother prior to attending the workshop.

Restoring Connection and Reason in Times of Traumatic Stress

with Rosemary Masters, JD, LCSW and Faige Flakser, LCSW

Wednesday, March 6th, 2024 6:00PM-8:00 PM on Zoom

This event will be approved for NYS 2 CE credits

Unfolding events in the world and in our country continue to be traumatically stressful for many.  Inflammatory language has exploded at an alarming rate. Relationships are fraying and discourse is hardly civil. In this we are witnessing reactions to a traumatized brain in survival mode. As the war in the middle east stretches on and this country moves closer to a presidential election, it is imperative to restore connection and reason in a world full of emotional overwhelm. There are tools which we can use to help ground those that we care for, professionally and personally. This presentation will outline the brain’s response to traumatic events. You will have an opportunity to learn specific techniques that can be implemented immediately. Our approach will help mental health professionals as well as others, understand, manage and calm the emotionally charged reaction all around us.

LGBTQ History: Then & Now
with Gary Jacobson, LCSW, Kathleen Miller, MFA, LCSW, & Anna Kramarsky, PhD
Fridays: April 12, 19, 26, May 3, 10, and 17 2024
12:30pm-2:00pm at ICP

This course will provide an overview of contemporary LGBTQ experience, owning the historical progress that has come to pass, while also exploring the impact of more current events and concerns. For example, while the AIDS epidemic shaped the experience of LGBTQ identified baby boomers, how is Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) impacting Gen Z youth and millennial young adults? Has there been a generational loss of information now that the Zeitgeist is greater acceptance and rights for the LGBTQ community, and if so, how does it and will it impact future generations? And perhaps most pressing, what impact has the Covid-19 Pandemic and its cascading effects had on those who identify as LGBTQ? How have these effects been either mitigated or exacerbated by  other intersecting aspects of identity such as race, class, immigration and dis/ability (to name only a few)? 

These questions and more will be addressed over the course of 6 weeks, through a combination of readings, film and discussion. Together, we will take a look back at the history of LGBTQ affirmative psychotherapy, the racialized history of our current terms ‘gender’ and ‘sexuality,’ and the experiences of various LGBTQ communities in relation to the AIDS epidemic. We will also look at the places where shame, homophobia, transphobia/misogyny, social media/technology and body modification come up in our current, and often remote, consulting rooms.
