    Course Description
    :

    Research indicates that each of us find various rituals, customs and traditions important in our sense of identity. Clients appear for therapy from a variety of backgrounds and may also hold these various elements important to their lives. For therapists learning to ask further about these areas and incorporate them into treatment may aid in building rapport as well as providing culturally appropriate treatment. It is also important for therapists to assess when these elements may be a source of shame or ambivalence for the client and how to process this as part of the client's experience. Therapists learning to take care with stereotypes is also an important part of learning when to appropriately incorporate rituals, customs and traditions into treatment in order to not perpetuate micro aggressions and to have better treatment outcome.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will learn of the research around incorporating rituals, customs and traditions in clinical practice.
    2. Participants will learn about the importance of meaning that various rituals, customs and traditions may hold in a client's life as well as places there client may hold shame or ambivalence around expressing these elements.
    3. Participants will learn how to ethically and appropriately incorporate rituals, customs and traditions into the course of treatment.

    Addiction, Shame, Relationships, & Recovery, presented by Robert Weathers, Ph.D.


    Date: February 16th, 2018

    Course Description
    :
     

    Relational stressors, particularly shame, are the #1 trigger for relapse in recovery from addiction. Hence, recovery, to be effective, needs to be situated both relationally (with "un-shaming" as goal) and objectively (neuroscience) for the former addict and his/her loved ones, both seeking healing.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1) List three primary brain changes across all addictions.

    2) Describe the relational impact of each of the above brain changes.

    3) Explain PAWS, applying it to relational considerations.
