Cultural Competence in Couples Counseling, Gottman’s Principals and More!
Even a highly seasoned couples therapist can feel out of sync when encountering unfamiliar cultural patterns in a marriage. Similarly, the stresses of cultural differences between partners in an intimate relationship can exacerbate the tension within the union.
This training will help participants understand the facets that define culture and how culture can be used as a strength within a relationship. Through interactive discussion and activities participant will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of culture, and its role in the therapeutic alliance, in couples counseling. You will gain an understanding of how cultural views can cause a barrier to treatment and even deter clients from coming to therapy. The Facilitators will use case studies of couples of various backgrounds and will look at effective methods, Gottman and others, for working with minority couples.
This training will improve participant’s insight of how cultural biases exist and how to identify this through comprehensive assessment of the couple, and ongoing self-assessment. Best practices and research will be discussed to conclude the workshop. (Presented by: Monika Ward, LCSW-C and Dr. Kia James, EdD, LCPC of Relationship Boosters)

How can I be Ethical When You’re Driving Me Crazy!? Surviving the Emotional Hazards of the Workplace
The work place throws together people who did not choose each other, but were hired to work towards a common goal. Workplace dynamics create challenges for professionals as they struggle to achieve their own goals while meeting the objectives and expectations of the organization. But what are our Ethical obligations to colleagues? What does the Code of Ethics have to say about this topic?
Working with difficult people actually affords clinicians an opportunity to hone their clinical skills while learning to work out unique challenges.
This interactive training will help you understand effective methods for working with difficult people and gain a personal serenity that will allow them to thrive while working through the emotional ups and downs of the workplace. (Trainer Jeffrey Davidson LCSW-C, LICSW, Director, CE You!)
