Comments from previous run of this seminar 

“Wow, it all was great!” – CL,  Social Worker, DC

“This is so different than other CEU classes, Thank you!” – anon. DC “

Ms. Dietz Rocks! Everything was excellent!” – SW, social worker 

 

In the first two classes of this Seminar we will learn to create, find and apply metaphors of healing. We will look to the new field of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and traditional eastern medicine for models of health and healing.

 


Class 1- 10:00am- 1:00pm (3 CEUs)

Getting the Metaphor!

In Class 1 of this Seminar we will observe the metaphors that we consciously and unconsciously use in therapy and therapeutic settings We will evaluate the worlds and directions they open up for us.  We will study the application of word metaphors, sculpting, and choreographed metaphors. We will learn how these expand our understanding of “the problem” or “the solution”. 

Participants will take time to integrate the material through group and individual exercises and will gain new insights into the healing processes we provide for others in our professional lives. (Trainer, Rebecca Dietz, LICSW, Founder and Coordinator, HOCO YouthSpeak)

Class 2-  1:45pm-4:45pm (3 CEUs)

The Seasons of Healing!

In eastern philosophy the health of our earth, our relationships and our bodies is all rooted in the movement and balance of life’s energy, or chi.  To understand the symptoms that cause us dis-ease, and the paths that will take us to more ease, we look to where we are in the cycle of the seasons, and the movement or stagnation of energy.

We will compare how the western medical model of fixing broken parts and the eastern model of balancing energy both provide metaphorical maps to understand mind/body phenomena, and possibilities for healing.  We will focus on understanding nature’s seasons through an eastern lens, and on the possibilities for healing metaphor and movement inherent in that perspective. Participants will gain a better ability to empathize and understand what our clients are experiencing.

We will round out our “western” education with some healing practices from eastern philosophy and learn to use the healing arts rooted in the wisdom of the physical seasons.  Participants will learn the gifts, emotions and challenges embedded in each season, as well as techniques to help ourselves be present to situations we find ourselves in, and create possibilities to move toward wholeness and healing for ourselves and our clients.  (Trainer, Rebecca Dietz, LICSW, Founder and Coordinator, HOCO YouthSpeak)

 

 

*Evening Ethics*

 

The Penn State Factor: The Ethical Imperative of Mandated Reporting and the Devastating Effect of Cover-Up (3 Category I Ethics CEUs, 3 CME for physicians)

Few things are as heartbreaking and upsetting as learning of an occurrence of child abuse. It is even more disconcerting to learn of systematic abuse and the efforts by institutions to cover them up. It is often said that “the cover up is worse than the crime”. Yet time and again institutions and professionals choose to turn a blind eye to abuse or sweep concerns under the rug. This class will take a look at the abuse allegations and cover-up at Penn State University.

Participants will look at reporting patterns and gain an understanding of what prevents people from reporting, and learn how to create an environment that encourages abuse reporting. Participants will learn the laws related to child abuse reporting and what constitutes child abuse in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia. They will gain a deeper understanding of the reasons that people and institutions do not report events and an understanding of that impact on the institutions and children. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
