Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based, culturally responsive treatment model for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers. This model addresses the unique needs of children and youth with PTSD symptoms, depression, or other behavioral, social, and emotional issues related to traumatic life experiences. After completing the in-classroom training, participants receive support through consultation calls to help identify and resolve challenges they may have when using TF-CBT with their current caseload.

Beyond Awareness: Providing Responsive Service to Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People of Color
Beyond Awareness: Providing Responsive Service to Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People of Color
Presented By:

People of color who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming (GNC) experience unique struggles due to the intersection of gendered bias and structural and interpersonal racism. This marginalized population often has increased psychosocial, medical, and mental health concerns, and will present complex scenarios for providers to navigate. In order to provide responsive care, service providers must recognize the ways in which the intersectionality of gender identity and culture affects this population. During this event, the 2015 National Transgender Discrimination Survey will be used to provide data to demonstrate the increased levels of discrimination for transgender and gender nonconforming individuals of color. We will discuss the importance of using a gender-affirming, culturally responsive lens, as well as the importance of using a wraparound approach when working with youth and their families. Participants will respond to clinical vignettes and case scenarios, as well as participate in group discussion and brainstorming to help with case conceptualization, case planning, and strategies to provide gender-affirming and culturally responsive care on an individual and organizational level.

School for The Work with Byron Katie
Presented By:
Oct. 23–Nov. 1, 2018
Location: Ojai Valley Inn
CE Credit: 50 hours
Fee: 5997.00

Join us for the ultimate inner adventure. Spend nine days losing the fear-based stories you've innocently clung to all your life. At the School you'll discover that your stories are everyone's, and everyone's stories are yours. You'll be supported so you can be completely yourself without fear of judgment, perhaps for the first time in your life.

The curriculum at the School is a living, evolving process, changing with the needs of the participants and on the basis of past students' experiences. The exercises and activities are designed to mirror the transformation Katie herself went through after she woke up to reality in 1986. You will work on issues such as sex, fear, body image, addiction, money, and relationships of every kind.

The School for The Work is an immersion experience—an immersion in freedom. Each day during the School you may find yourself feeling freer and happier than the day before. Old habits may fall away like outworn clothes. You may find yourself eager to get up in the morning so that you won't miss a moment of this unfolding adventure.

Law & Ethics 9: Suicide and the Soul
Law & Ethics 9: Suicide and the Soul
Presented By:
December 15, 2018 10:00am-5:00pm
Location: San Fernando Valley-Hilton Garden Inn-Calabasas
CE Credit: 6 hours
Fee: 155.00
Meets Mandated California Law & Ethics requirement

When the pain of life becomes overwhelming, thoughts of ending the suffering can rise. This is one of the most challenging situations in the work of anyone in a helping profession. Any possibility that a client might be considering taking their life mobilizes all of our skills. This day, our ninth seminar on Law and Ethics is on how to evaluate the risk and reduce the possibility of self-destruction.

We will discuss the classic film It’s a Wonderful Life, and other stories, to explore the underlying crisis of meaning that can lead to dire thoughts. Mythic lore contains guidance and support for the rough parts of the journey. The dark night of the soul is a particularly difficult element of the quest. In times of trouble, it may genuinely seem like life should end. This can be a problem of overly literal thinking. Death and rebirth are supposed to be symbolic. Such confusion can be addressed in treatment. In the long view, we are all meant to find resilience and make it through the daunting hurdles of our stories.

This day meets the new mandate that all psychologists complete six hours of training in suicide assessment and intervention. Topics include risk factors, crisis management, treatment decisions, legal procedures and ethical issues.
