    Description:

    In this session, Elaine Miller-Karas will elucidate the Community Resiliency Model (CRM) core principles and introduce the six essential wellness skills it encompasses.

    The central focus of the Community Resiliency Model revolves around educating individuals about the intricate biology and neurophysiology associated with trauma, stress, and resilience. Within this framework, individuals are equipped with simple yet biologically grounded wellness techniques that can be shared with clients undergoing stressful situations, ultimately aiding in the resetting and stabilizing of their nervous systems.

    Through CRM, individuals are guided to develop an acute awareness of bodily sensations linked to their overall well-being, referred to as the "Resilient Zone." The ultimate objective of CRM is to cultivate individuals who are both "trauma-informed" and "resiliency-informed and -focused." They share a collective understanding of the profound impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system while recognizing the potential for restoring or enhancing resilience through a skills-based approach.
    CRM has demonstrated its effectiveness across various scenarios, including responding to active crises like the situation in Ukraine. Furthermore, it serves as a valuable post-crisis intervention, empowering community members to learn and subsequently teach CRM within their communities. In all evaluated populations and intervention contexts (excluding Ukraine, which is not under evaluation), CRM consistently demonstrates its ability to reduce symptoms related to post-traumatic stress (PTS/STS), depression, and anxiety. This underscores CRM's adaptability, usability, and cultural relevance as an intervention approach.

    Learning Objectives:

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

    1. One or more key Community Resiliency Model (CRM) concepts.
    2. Three or more skills of CRM.
    3. One or more clinical applications of CRM.

    Presenter Information:

    Elaine Miller-Karas is co-founder and Executive Director Emeriti at the Trauma Resource Institute (TRI), a nonprofit promoting resilience and trauma-informed care. Under her guidance, TRI has pioneered groundbreaking initiatives such as the Community Resiliency Model (CRM) and the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), both widely acknowledged interventions for addressing and preventing traumatic stress. She has spearheaded projects helping communities in the recovery process after mass shootings.

    Miller-Karas is the author of "Building Resilience to Trauma: the Trauma and Community Resiliency Models, Second Edition," a work commended by the United Nations and Taylor and Francis for its alignment with the U.N.'s sustainable development goals. Her contributions extend to regular insights in writing for Psychology Today on trauma-related subjects and hosting the weekly radio show "Resiliency Within" on VoiceAmerica.

    Notably, she leads the Ukraine Humanitarian Resiliency Program, supporting teachers and children.

      Description:

      Mental health and addiction theory and practice share a long history of controversy. The developmental model of addiction, with its focus on the trauma of loss of control and a radical, transformational process of change in recovery, provides a missing bridge in theory and practice for these controversial fields.

      We will review the developmental/trauma model of addiction, including the stages and tasks of treatment for the patient, accenting disordered attachment to alcohol and the loss of control as central organizing principles in the experience of being addicted and the process of recovery. We will define active addiction as a traumatic attachment disorder and the process of recovery as trauma treatment and new development in recovery.

      Key therapist issues we will explore include beliefs, values, transference, countertransference and themes of power and control. We will outline the multiple roles of the therapist at each stage of recovery development including how to listen, how to integrate theoretical frames, and how to define a treatment alliance.

      The therapist is guided by a deep belief that the process of healthy development and change in recovery involves an understanding of paradox and radical transformation for client and therapist.


      Learning Objectives:

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

      1. To construct an attachment based, trauma centered developmental model of addiction and recovery.
      2. To define addiction as an attachment disorder and loss of control as the central organizing principles of the developmental model of addiction and recovery.
      3. To describe the stages of addiction and recovery and the tasks of treatment, change and new development for the addicted person.
      4. To highlight key issues for the therapist in working within a process, developmental/trauma model.
      5. To describe trauma theory as a bridge between mental health and addiction theory and practice.

                To grow up with the dynamics of loss, be it from living with addiction, violence or simply unavailable parents creates a legacy of internalized toxic shame, a consequence of traumatic stress. Claudia will talk about traumas common to impaired families in general, and specifically in families affected by addiction. The ultimate consequence to living with various forms of abandonment tells people they are not of value, resulting in toxic shame messages. Claudia will then identify and address shame screens such as victimization, perfectionism, rage, procrastination, and control that are common to mental health, addiction, and intimacy disorders.

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

                1. Identify how trauma responses of flight, fight and freeze become acted out in the family impacted by addiction
                2. Describe the relationship of shame to core clinical issues
                3. Describe the relationship of abandonment and boundary distortion to the creation of unhealthy shame
                4. List 8 shame screens
                5. Describe interventions to stop shame-based thinking

                    Description:

                    The presentation will focus on bridging Psychodynamic and CBT in clinical practice.

                    At the end of this workshop, participants will:

                    1. Gain a beginning understanding of a psychodynamic, relational therapeutic model grounded in attachment theory and neurobiological research on trauma.
                    2. Understand how the therapeutic relationship is a form of exposure therapy that informs the back-and-forth cuing in schematic response patterns.
                    3. Understand how CBT can augment relational clinical work by focusing on schemas and managing emotional dysregulation.

                      Presenter Information:

                          Presenter:  Dr. Frederic Reamer  
                          CEUs: 3

                          Today’s practitioners face ethical challenges that are unprecedented and could hardly have been imagined by social work’s earliest practitioners. Contemporary clinical social workers can provide services remotely to clients they may never meet in person; search online for information about clients without their knowledge or consent; store sensitive client information in the "cloud"; and communicate with clients and former clients on online social networking sites. Dr. Frederic Reamer will provide a comprehensive overview of ethics challenges related to social workers' increasing use of digital and other technology and discuss the implications of recently enacted ethics standards, regulatory standards, and practice standards governing social workers' use of technology.

                          Learning Objectives:

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

                          1. Identify trends in the development of social work ethics standards in the digital age.
                          2. Apply practical ethical decision-making frameworks and protocols.
                          3. Identify ethical issues that pose malpractice and liability risks related to social workers' use of technology.
                          4. Design strategies to protect clients and practitioners.

                          Session 2:  Complex Ethics Challenges in Clinical Social Work: Ethical Decision-making and Risk Management
