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.

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.

Families Need Support Too:
The Rippling Effects of an Eating Disorder

with CSAB co-director Jake Pine, LCSW

Tuesday, February 27, 2024, 6:30-8:00pm via Zoom

Navigating the maze of the mental health treatment world—especially the eating disorder wing of that world—is increasingly complicated, nerve-wracking, and expensive. Family members of a person with an eating disorder are often asked (and frequently want) to get treatment for themselves, but sometimes don’t know how to find it, what sort of treatment to get, and in some cases, why it is important at all. This virtual interactive seminar will address these questions and many others that family and friends often have, but don’t know whom to ask.

About the Presenter
Jacob Pine is a licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Manhattan. He grew up in New York City, and did his undergraduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University and The Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. He earned his Masters degree in social work from Fordham University, and received his certificate in the integrated treatment of eating disorders from the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia in 2010. He has been Co-director of CSAB for 5 years. He has presented, supervised, and taught in numerous capacities, and has had multiple articles published about his experience running an eating disorder group for men. He is well-versed in a wide variety of theories and techniques, and uses them as indicated by both scientific research and professional experience.

Melting Away Resistance in Eating Disorder Treatment

with Donna Fish, LCSW-R

Approved for 2 NYS CE credits

Patients who come to us with eating disorders initially want change and they are distressed. Most of the time, however, the powerful reasons for the development of their eating disorder, will reemerge. This workshop will focus on the specific outcome and process resistances that are common to eating disorders, and will offer therapists specific tools to use with patients at the outset so that the agenda for the work is established. Ways to positively reframe and maintain the advantages of symptoms will be identified. Additionally we will focus on ways to preserve safety and to offer the Gentle Ultimatum in order to effectively set up a treatment plan that takes pressure off of the therapist needing the patient to change.

About the presenter:
Donna Fish LCSW-R, is a licensed clinical social worker and currently runs a private practice in Manhattan. Current faculty positions include the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia, and adjunct at Ramapo College where she teaches the clinical course for 2nd year MSW students.

Following the publication of her book “Take the Fight out of Food: How to Prevent and Solve Your Child’s Eating Problems”, Ms. Fish has been a consultant to NYC’s Administration of Child Services, Head Start, Bellevue and Mount Sinai Hospital, the Minnesota School Board, and Renfrew Center.

Intro to the Treatment of Eating Disorders

with CSAB co-director Jake Pine, LCSW

Tuesdays - October 3, 10, & 17, 2023, 6:30-8:00pm

Approved for 4.5 NYS CE credits

How, where, and when to get treatment for an eating disorder is one of the more difficult and important decisions an individual, family or treatment provider will have to make. This three-session seminar on the treatment of eating disorders will serve as a primer to the different treatment models often used to treat eating disorders. We will also explore the different levels of care frequently utilized in eating disorder treatment, and when and how to decide which level of care is necessary at the different stages of the disorder. This class will introduce participants to concepts of psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, DBT, FBT/Maudsley, IFS, and other theories, and their applications to eating disorder treatment. We will become familiar with the nuanced differences between inpatient hospitalization, residential treatment, PHP, IOP, and outpatient treatment.

Intro to Eating Disorders

with CSAB co-director Jake Pine, LCSW

Tuesdays - September 12th, 19th & 26th, 2023, 6:30-8:00pm

Approved for 4.5 NYS CE credits

This three-session introduction to eating disorders seminar will bring attendees into the tricky world of eating disorder diagnosis. We will discuss the differences between disordered eating and eating disorders. We will examine sub-clinical or “off-label” eating disorders and how to spot burgeoning eating disorders in people across the lifespan. In the DSM-V, the delineations between the various eating disorders are clear, but in the real world, the differences are much more nuanced and, often, difficult to ascertain. We will use the DSM as the guide for diagnosis, and using clinical examples and participants’ cases and questions, we will discuss what is, and what isn’t, an eating disorder.

Virtual Workshop:

The Truth Shall Set You Free: Ethics and Authenticity in Session

with Mark O’Connell, LCSW-R, MFA

Approved for 3 NYS CE Credits

As therapists, our most essential instrument to engage our clients is our selves–no matter what theories or techniques guide our work. But very little is written or taught about how we can prepare and use our instrument in session, moment-to-moment, with each client–particularly in terms of our implicit/ non-verbal communication as it transmits through our eyes, faces, bodies, and voices. The more aware we are of our unique instrument and how we use it, the more ethical our clinical practice will be with each unique person who seeks our help.

Utilizing his experience as both an actor and a therapist, Mark O’Connell will offer you ways to prepare and to use your instrument with awareness, responsiveness, authenticity, intentionality, versatility, responsibility, and self-care. Participants will discuss ethical dilemmas in clinical practice with individuals, couples, and families, including questions around self-disclosure, countertransference, and confidentiality. And we will study, from an ethical perspective, how we can most effectively use ourselves authentically, even in the most challenging clinical scenarios. Mark will also guide you through theatrical concepts of “objectives,” and “roles” within relationships to gain perspectives on effective communication–beyond the words we speak–and to develop and trust your own sense of ethical and clinical best practices.

About the Presenter

Mark O’Connell, LCSW-R, MFA, is a psychotherapist in New York City, and a trained actor. He’s the author of the books The Performing Art of Therapy: Acting Insights and Techniques for Clinicians, and Modern Brides & Modern Grooms. His wide ranging articles have been published in various clinical journals and popular sources, and he writes the Psychology Today blog Quite Queerly.
