This workshop on Cultural Humility will introduce participants to a basic understanding of how the human brain and body process the impact of dominant cultural narratives. Through highlighting case examples involving couples, we will explore and illustrate ways in which the process of developing and strengthening the capacity for Cultural Humility promotes inclusion, diversity, and freedom of expression between individuals and groups. In order to re-formulate understandings and to dispel misunderstandings, Cultural Humility generates the emotional safety needed to help facilitate progressive change.
Registration for April’s workshop will be posted shortly.
Offered virtually via Zoom!
Approved for 4 CE Credits!
This workshop rolls out an original approach— Emotional Nutrition™ for Couples— that incorporates, and is compatible with all major contemporary methods including EFT, IFS, cognitive-behavioral, existential, and more. The approach is both psycho-educational and experiential. Reframes are strengths-based, trauma-informed, sex-positive, and culturally sensitive so that partners can find the encouragement and safety they need to achieve an expansive sense of connection. Please join us for a presentation that will feature the transformation of “stuck-ness” into the realm of what’s possible and positive for couples.

As people are living longer, concerns about quality of life have taken on an increasingly prominent place in the lives of our patients. One of the most frequently expressed concerns/frustrations with aging is how to manage the sexual changes that naturally occur in an aging body. Such concerns have implications for both levels of self-esteem and relationship/intimacy maintenance and enhancement. This presentation will address the myriad sexual dilemmas facing our patients aged 50 and up, as well as suggest strategies the practicing clinician can employ when working with such patients.

About the Workshop:
This presentation will define parental alienation in the separation-divorce context and how it is uniquely created by all participating family members: the alienating parent, the targeted parent, and the alienated child. In order to understand parental alienation, a family systems perspective is crucial to effective treatment. Clinical examples from the treatment of children and adults, as well as examples from group work with alienated parents will be offered.
