    Description:

    We think of depression as treatment resistant when a patient does not get better on two or more medication trials. In such situations, what new ways of thinking about medications are possible and what are reasonable ways of combining medications and why? An emphasis will be placed on why these work and how the patient feels on these combinations. We will also cover ketamine as an option for treatment resistant depression. How does it work and what is the supporting data?


    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

    1. Appreciate the possibility of combinations of medicines that can help depression more than a single agent. Gain insight on how a patient might feel on such combinations.
    2. Understand the basic mechanism of how Ketamine works and how it helps depression
    3. Have a general sense of the experience of patients undergoing ketamine treatment, how they feel, and how you can assist them during this period.

        Presenter: Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP | Delaware Licensed Psychologist, Trainer/Consultant/Author, Trauma Psychology and Treatment, Bethany Beach, DE, Private Practice, Washington, DC (retired)

        Confused over the difference between complex and other types of trauma, or how to treat PTSD or CPTSD? Confused by the different methods being advertised as the one way to treat trauma? Concerned you didn’t receive training about working with traumatized clients.  Confused about when and how to address a history of trauma and fearful of intensifying your client’s suffering or making your client worse? Not sure you want to work with these issues? This workshop is designed to provide information on these issues and to offer detailed guidance for the treatment of this patient population.

        Over the past decade, understanding of what constitutes complex trauma and what differentiates it from more time-limited impersonal forms of trauma has grown significantly. Complex trauma is now recognized as the most common type of lifespan trauma with a wide range of developmental and posttraumatic consequences. A history of complex trauma is prevalent in many clients who seek mental health treatment, making it important for clinicians to be able to recognize symptoms and to offer relevant evidence-based and supported treatment and medication, if indicated.

        The primary focus of the workshop is the treatment of CPTSD, with an emphasis on recent treatment guidance and innovations. We start by covering the recommendations of the major treatment guidelines (both clinical practice and professional practice) for PTSD as they apply to CPTSD. The presenter (with co-author Dr. Julian Ford) has recently developed a meta-model of CPTSD treatment entitled PRISM referring to trauma-informed and responsive treatment that is Personalized, Relational, Integrative, Sequenced/Strategic, and Multi-Modal/Multi-Dimensional as an update and supplement to the now classic Sequenced Relationship-Based Model outlined in their previous books. The PRISM meta-model will be presented in detail as it is intended to guide the clinician in the treatment of a diversity of clients each of whom have unique histories, contexts, and presentations to address. It will be integrated with and applied within the phases of the sequenced model. Current best practices in the treatment of complex traumatic stress disorders will be presented.

        This workshop will further address common process issues, transition points, and crises that arise in the treatment of this population. Although no one-size-fits-all protocol is adequate to address the complexity of each such point in treatment, the reenactment of developmental trauma experiences and the emergence of a dissociative fragmentation of consciousness are two prominent dynamics. Two filmed psychotherapy session excerpts developed and archived on the Center for the Treatment of Developmental Trauma Disorders Identifying Critical Moments in Healing Complex Trauma webinar series (available at no cost on learn.nctsn.org) will be shown to demonstrate different approaches taken when clients experience developmental trauma reenactments and dissociation. The sessions were filmed as learning tools with real therapists and actors portraying the clients. They illustrate different paths that therapists can take in guiding clients through critical moments and crises in the treatment. These films provide the opportunity to reflect on elements of the PRISM model that are evident. They also serve as catalysts for discussion for reactions and emotions elicited in the viewer. The workshop will end with discussion of some of the challenges and satisfactions/posttraumatic growth for the therapist that are inherent in work with this population. 

        Learning Objectives

        At the completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

        1. Describe differences between complex and other types of traumatic stressors.
        2. Identify common developmental and posttraumatic consequences of complex trauma.
        3. Describe the criteria for Complex PTSD in the ICD-11
        4. Describe the primary elements of the PRISM acronym and the phases of the sequenced treatment model for CT.
        5. Describe both countertransference and secondary traumatic stress reactions that psychotherapists often experience with complex trauma clients.

        About the Presenter: 

        Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP

        My career has been devoted to the clinical care of adult survivors of childhood abuse and of other types of trauma and has closely followed the trajectory of the contemporary development of the field of traumatic stress studies. It began in 1971, when I co-founded and directed a campus rape crisis center at the University of Maryland in College Park (the first of its type in the country) and conducted original research on the aftermath of incestuous abuse for my dissertation in 1979. In 1988, I published my first book based on that research entitled, Healing the Incest Wound: Adult Survivors in Therapy, the first of a dozen clinical books I have authored or edited since then. Although not a permanent faculty member (I have had a number of adjunct appointments, up to the present), my work is academically and theoretically-based and is highly integrative of research findings to clinical applications. The primary focus of my work has been on complex forms of childhood developmental trauma, its consequences--across the lifespan but particularly in adults--and its treatment in settings such as a specialized in-patient and day hospital program, in my private practice, and as a consultant to addiction, rape crisis, and grief programs. I retired from my practice in Washington, DC after 35 years and am now semi-retired. I continue to remain professionally active however, pursuing many interests related to traumatic stress studies, including the provision of clinical consultation, forensic assessments and expert witness services, efforts to develop clinical and professional practice guidelines for trauma treatment, the development of a meta-model of treatment for complex trauma and its consequences, the inclusion of topics related to trauma into general education and professional and post-doctoral training curricula, and the development of a sub-specialty of trauma psychology through the American Psychological Association and the American Board of Professional Psychology. I also continue to develop and teach workshops on a wide variety of topics related to trauma and its treatment, including the challenges and rewards of this area of emphasis for the clinician and the maintenance of self-care and emotional health.

        Retirement! Is it on the horizon for you? The California Society for Clinical Social Work (CSCSW) invites you to join its Retirement Discussion Group (RDG). 

        Free group for CSCSW Members who are thinking about retiring

        The group will provide a mutually supportive space for participants to explore how it's done, logistics, tapering down, clinical issues with clients, and our feelings about it. As we benefit from consultation and assistance at the beginning and middle phases of our careers, it is no different when it comes to closing out a fulfilling career in a way that we feel is ethically and practically sound. 

        Make a cup of coffee and join us for our first group meeting on Nov. 15, 2022, 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

        This workshop will introduce updated terms and information around the LGBTQIA2S movement and the current foundational concepts of sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression (SOGIE). There is a lot of talk going around about pronouns and queer issues/rights, but what does it look like for people to actually be respectful of each other when it comes to these identity markers in the workplace? The session will offer teaching about the history of oppression as well as the queer rights movement(s), practical collective problem solving, experiential exercises and Q & A. It will interrelate with teachings offered around intersectionality, looking specifically at being BIPOC and queer, being male bodied vs. female bodied, or trans, along with other privileged/historically excluded identity markers. We will look at some of the building blocks for creating sustainable relationships with people from a whole spectrum of dentities you may come across.

        Learning Objectives:

        At the end of this meeting, participants will:

        1. Be able to define basic terms related to the LGBTQIA+/QTBIPOC community.
        2. Basic understanding of some of the challenges and discrimination faced by LGBTQIA+/QTBIPOC that impact mental health and wellness.
        3. Demonstrate your personal feelings and ideas about members of the LGBTQIA+/QTBIPOC community and how to respectfully support LGBTQIA+/QTBIPOC folx.

                  About the Presenters:

                  DeAngela Cooks, AMFT

                  I’m DeAngela. I’m a triangle; comfortable with making points and incorporating the three sides of the truth. As a result, I’m a passionate public speaker of 20 years, professional master of ceremonies, an acclaimed Diversity, Equity and Inclusion workshop facilitator, and author.

                  Hailing from Southern California, I embrace my intersectional identities. As a Black, queer, woman, who is a parent, and has been a minister and stand-up comic, I bring a wealth of experiences to my work; infusing education with elocution, wit and a splash of sarcasm. I have collaborated on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives with UC Davis, The County of Alameda, Facing History and Ourselves, Cal State Fullerton, Designory, Golden Crown Literary Society, San Francisco Department of Probation, regional housing authorities, and the Pacific Center for Human Growth, just to name a few. I have also been a guest lecturer and keynote speaker on the topic of multiculturalism for various organizations.

                  After knocking out my Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy and Religion, I decided to graduate with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I guess it's safe to say I'm a sap.

                  During my down time, you can find me encouraging parents to stop counting their toddler's age in months and devising a scheme to become unidentifiable by my student loan providers. My superpower is utilizing my humor to help people reflect their sameness while appreciating their differences.

                  To find out more about my public speaking coaching, workshops and event hosting, visit my personal website at www.DeAngela.net.

                  Taunya Black, AMFT

                  I’m Taunya. I’m a circle; able to hold the center, while expanding the circumference to create a transformative space; one that brings together individual gifts in the service of initiating movement for the collective good. I believe that DEI work is both a revolutionary (institutional) and an evolutionary (interpersonal/personal) process that involves the heart, mind and spirit in equal measure. Having worked in non-profit settings as a Program and Executive Director, and strategic management consultant, I bring expertise in program design and implementation, staff development, strategic visioning and operations. This, in combination with my training as a Marriage and Family Therapist, yoga and meditation instructor, and holistic personal coach, allows me to approach DEI work from all sides of being.

                  As a mixed race Black, bi-coastal, bi-sexual queer woman and former single parent, with familial roots in both the Northeast and the South, I have an experiential understanding of the ways in which binaries operate within the American cultural landscape. I am able to traverse many different cultural binaries, and the spaces in between, with empathy. In addition to my traditional organizational work, and prior to founding TMC, I worked on a variety of DEI initiatives with organizations including Brooklyn Friends School, The Pacific Center for Human Growth, California Institute of Integral Studies, Public Equity Group, and the Bridgespan Group. Some of my other work included participating in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion task forces at various educational institutions, lecturing on multiculturalism for graduate-level psychology courses, collaborating on content for keynotes, and curating a mental health conference specifically addressing the mental health needs of QTBIPoC folx. I currently sit on the board of Acta Non-Verba, a non-profit dedicated to urban farming and food justice.

                  I hold a BA in Urban Studies and Dance from Barnard College, a BA in Creative Writing from SUNY Empire State, and an MA in Counseling Psychology from The California Institute of Integral Studies. My superpower is creative and strategic visioning, synthesizing complex concepts, and creating platforms for change. To learn more about me, visit my LinkedIn page.
