Ethics in Action: Shades of Gray!

Different traditions offer varying opinions on therapist self-disclosure.  How can you determine whether a disclosure is appropriate in context, and adheres to the ethical treatment of a given client?  This experiential workshop will use the technique of “future projection” to explore real-life, garden-variety self-disclosures that therapists make to clients.  In a lab-like setting, participants will have the opportunity to enact and discuss the ramifications of self-disclosure.  In slowing down the process through action, “choice points” can be assessed, and different possibilities can be considered without negative consequences.  Discussion and processing will round out the experiential focus as peers benefit from each other’s wisdom and perspectives. (Trainer: Linda Bianchi, LICSW, LCSW, TEP, TAKE ACTION)

Getting to the Point! Methods and Applications of Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy

Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) principles have been applied to situations as diverse as, school settings, couples therapy, drug abuse, and suicide prevention programs. Unlike classical psychotherapists, SFBT practitioners don’t go looking at a client’s past to search for the root of the problem. Instead they ask a series of questions. They help their clients find out what is going right and build on those successes. The simple yet profound methods of SFBT have been shown to be effective in working with even highly dysfunctional clients and families.

This interactive training will familiarize you with the principles of SFBT and help you understand the implications of this highly effective therapy in working with their clients. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
