Cultivating Change:

Case Studies Illustrating the Use of Multiple Lenses in Engaging Substance-Using Clients

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

Saturday, October 26th, 2024 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.

Hybrid Workshop - Virtual & in-person at ICP:

The Complicated World of Family Cutoffs:

Causes, Interventions, and a Deeper Understanding

with Tracey Ross, LCSW & Judy Aronowitz, LCSW

 

Thursday, February 1, 2024, 7:00-9:00pm

This event will be approved for 2 NYS CE credits

 

Family estrangement is extremely widespread, affecting millions of people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or class. As therapists, whether we are working with individuals, couples, or families, the pain and impact is something we regularly encounter in our clinical work. Often there is internal conflict, particular meaning attached to the loss of the relationship(s), and inter-generational damage, that seeps into current relationships. With a deeper understanding of the causes, impact, and paths to repair, we as therapists can intervene to create lasting change and support individuals and families in finding a path forward.

We will take a deep dive into this phenomenon and look at the genogram of a family in order to deepen our understanding of the clinical material and examine the personal, relational, inter-generational, and multi-cultural aspects of this phenomena.
