Class 1 – 2, 10:00am-4:45 pm (6 CEUs)

Recovering from Abandonment Trauma and its Aftermath of Self-Sabotaging Patterns

“Of all human fears, abandonment is the most primal,” says Susan Anderson, a psychotherapist who has worked with the victims of abandonment trauma and its aftermath of self sabotaging patterns for more than 30 years. “Left unresolved, this deep personal wound can linger beneath the surface where it undermines self-esteem and interferes in our relationships from within.”

This experiential training seminar explores the impact of abandonment trauma on children and adults. We explore the five phases of abandonment grief and examine how this process differs from other forms of bereavement and loss. We discuss how unresolved abandonment trauma can interfere in adult functioning, most notably, in the ability to form primary relationships.  We explore key features of post traumatic stress disorder of abandonment and how they differ from those of borderline personality disorder.  We practice using Akeru, a program of recovery techniques for ameliorating core emotions stemming from abandonment wounds past and present which tend to accumulate as life progresses through its stages, and for overcoming abandonment’s posttraumatic patterns of self sabotage.  We use the methods of didactic presentation, experiential training, and intensive group sharing process.

Class 3 – 5:30pm – 8:30pm

(3 CEUs, 3 CME Hrs)

HIV: A Virus, a Syndrome, and an Ethical Question – Updated

Since the early 1980’s clinicians have been grappling with the medical, social and ethical ramifications of the HIV/Aids Epidemic. On the medical front, great progress has been achieved. With proper medication people with HIV are living longer than ever, to the point where some no longer consider it a fatal illness. Yet in our region and in many large cities, HIV cases remain above epidemic rates and many questions still remain.

This informative training will offer an understanding of current thinking around the HIV/AIDS epidemic and what it means for clients today and into the future. This training will look at what treatment is available for HIV, and the best ways to prevent new infections. We will take a fresh look at some of the ethical dilemmas that clinicians have been grappling with for more than a generation. This 3 CEU class counts as both Ethics and HIV training. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
