Welcoming LGBTQIA+ People - 7.25 CEs

Instructional Level

Intermediate — Builds upon the learner’s foundational knowledge, familiarity with the literature and/or experience in a content area. Programming at this level includes more depth than at a beginning level program. It could also serve as a refresher course for individuals who have background in a content area and are interested in learning more contemporary applications.

Course Description and Target Audience

This training is a three-part series designed to increase cultural competence in working with the LGBTQIA+ population, while challenging the provider to better understand their perspective in working with this population and to identify areas of opportunities as related to working with this population. The needs of LGBTQIA+ patients and their families are often overlooked, neglected, or minimized by providers. Often this oversight is rooted in lack of training, lack of experience, and provider comfort level. Participants who view this training will gain knowledge, skill, ability, and interest in working with the LGBTQIA+ population. Part one of this series offers opportunities to obtain the language providers need to respect and empower patients, to become an inclusive practice, and to build confidence in developing relationships necessary to nurture healing and growth. Part two of this series is dedicated to Best Practice Guidelines when working with the LGBTQIA+ population. Part three of this series is dedicated to covering population topic specific information (youth, families, senior, suicide, documentation, WPATH Standards of Care, etc.). Time will also be allotted for participant practice via vignettes and requests regarding specific information about serving people who are LGBTQIA+.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians, etc).

Though minimal-to-no risk is expected, any potential risk would likely be the result of the information in this training uncovering participant discomfort with working with the LGBTIA+ population or as this material relates to their personal lives.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to assess personal and professional awareness, knowledge, and specific skill to the LGBTQIA+ populations.
  • Participants will be able to explain the importance of incorporating sexual orientation and gender identity into the professional relationship.
  • Participants will be able to analyze healthcare needs and barriers to core for the LGBTQIA+ population.
  • Participants will be able to identify Best Practices in creating a safe and welcoming environment for LGBTQIA+ people and in treating LGBTQIA+ patients.

  • Participants will be able to demonstrate increased comfort with LGBTQIA+ language and conversation.
  • Participants will be able to name leading organizations and resources to utilize when serving LGBTQIA+ people.
  • Participants will be able to describe minority stress and intersectionality as it applies to LGBTQIA+ people.

Grief and Loss Packet - 9 CEs

Taken together, these training courses represent a comprehensive primer on Grief and Loss. The first part, “Loss, Grief, and Mourning: Beyond Kübler-Ross,” focuses on the many nuances, theories, and approaches to grief. “Grief and Loss: Theory and Intervention” focuses more on Clinical and DSM-5 considerations. Both are offered as a video link with handout materials.

Loss, Grief, and Mourning: Beyond Kübler-Ross (6 CEs)

Materials composed and provided by Heather Servaty-Seib, Ph.D.

Instructional Level

Advanced

Course Description and Target Audience

Loss, grief, and mourning are concepts that can be applied to both death loss and non-death loss situations. This presentation will address the broader application of these concepts while also reviewing advancements in the field of grief and mourning, including innovative theory and current research critical for evidenced-based clinical work with grieving individuals. Other topics addressed will include type of losses (e.g., physical, psychosocial, secondary and disenfranchised), myths about grief, common patterns of grief, multidimensional nature of grief, distinction between grief and mourning, factors associated with grief reactions, grief within families, and strategies for distinguishing between normative and persistent complex bereavement (i.e., DSM-5). Suggestions for practice and relevant case examples will be integrated throughout.

The information offered is evidenced-based and is there for as accurate as possible based on current empirical research. The limits are those of the existing theories and research. The risk might be the possible overgeneralization of any recommendations offered–as grief is so unique to each individual person.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc).

Learning Objectives

  • List common myths about grief
  • Identify innovative theories of grief and mourning and their application to practice
  • Describe the challenges related to Persistent Complex Bereavement diagnosis
  • Articulate key elements of death-related rituals
  • Explain strategies for interacting with seriously ill individuals

Play Therapy - 3 CEs

Instructional Level

Intermediate — Builds upon the learner’s foundational knowledge, familiarity with the literature and/or experience in a content area. Programming at this level includes more depth than at a beginning level program. It could also serve as a refresher course for individuals who have background in a content area and are interested in learning more contemporary applications.

Course Description and Target Audience

This workshop will include hands-on learning and will provide attendees with tools that can be used with children regardless of their diagnoses. Play therapy is a powerful tool for addressing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional challenges. We use play to help clients better process their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their world. Using a Trauma-Focused based approach, I will describe how I use “storytelling” along with a variety of skill-building exercises to help kids learn to manage their big feelings and develop a sense of empowerment to make positive choices. Play therapy is evidenced-based, but there is no “one size fits all” or specific recipe, which means it will require insight, a good understanding of child development, and a willingness to be flexible. A play therapist must be well equipped with a toolbox full of a variety of interventions and skills. There are no known risks to this presentation.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians, etc).

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn the importance of story-telling and how to facilitate story-telling in the play therapy session.
  • Participants will learn at least 5 interventions to use to teach kids how to identify and express feelings.
  • Participants will learn at least 5 interventions to teach kids the following concepts: coping, self-care, powerful choices, self-control, and positive self-talk.
  • Participants will be able to describe the “art of the relationship” and how it guides treatment.
  • Participants will be able to explain how interventions can encourage children to open up and communicate, work through trauma, and gain healing from their experiences.
