Class 1 – “Therapy Disruption: 6 Strategies for Helping to Promote Change and Mindset Breakthroughs in Our Clients” (3 CEUs)
Therapy is more than just emotional support and validation. Therapy is a vehicle to disrupt our clients’ current ways of doing things to help them get the changes they want in their life! It is vital that therapists have tools to create disruption and breakthroughs in even our most difficult change resistant clients. During this class, we will review six strategies to intervene in meaningful ways that can help people create powerful change. Each strategy will have clinical examples, stories of change, and opportunities for you to explore how you will apply the technique in your own clinical practice.

Class 2 – Demystifying Addiction in the Age of Opioids and Internet Pornography (3 CEUs)
Exploring what addiction is through understanding the experiences of those who call themselves ‘addicts’ will help demystify treating this sometimes confusing and anxiety-provoking mental health issue. How do we identify addiction or help someone who is in denial of their addiction? What are the common psychological experiences of someone struggling with addiction? What clinical approaches and skills seem to work well?
This session will look at the definition of addiction, the experience of the ‘addict,’ and general principles that are helpful in treatment. The purpose is to help the clinician who does not specialize in addictions to feel more confident in their ability to assess, understand and treat individuals who come to them for help. (Trainer, Erik Hadden, MA, LCPC, Vital Sources Psychological Services)
Class 3 – 5:30pm – 8:30pm
The Penn State Factor: The Ethical Imperative of Mandated Reporting and the Devastating Effect of Cover-Up (3 CEUs- Ethics )
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.
