    South Region Luncheon
    Presented by Sharon Mead, LMFT

    Tired of feeling helpless when your couples erupt into open warfare during a session? Looking for a way to understand the anger or indifference that makes a pair look more like mortal enemies than loving partners?

    Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an attachment-based approach to couple therapy grounded in 25 years of research. EFT can transform the way you work with couples, demystifying the conflict that erupts when couples feel unwanted or rejected.

    Sue Johnson co-created this systemic, humanistic, and experiential model that can lead to deep, lasting and loving connections. Rather than teaching skills, EFT therapists work like empathic detectives to help couples discover the rigid and repetitive patterns that leave them feeling stuck and frustrated.

    Looking thru an attachment lens, the moves each partner makes can be seen as a need for safety and a longing for connection. Johnson describes a couple’s interactions as a dance and the emotions are the music.  She says, “If you change the music, you change the dance.”

    Presenter Sharon Mead will show:

    • How the attachment frame helps couples see their partner in a new light. "Of course, you are screaming at him; you want to know that you matter to him." Or, “Of course you spend all of your time in the garage; you are so afraid that you'll do something to alienate her and she is so important to you.”
    • How understanding the triggers that lead into a negative dance or cycle can lead to de-escalation and interrupts the "trying to find the bad guy dance."
    • Research that proves secure attachment changes the way the brain works.
    • The empirical validation for the effectiveness and long-lasting effects of EFT.

    Mead will provide practical concepts and at least two interventions that can be used right away. If you’ve been reluctant to work with couples or feel the need for more tools, this presentation will provide an overview of how to move couples from painful disconnection to a more secure, loving and lasting bond.

    The goal of this program is to increase interest in EFT among therapists in working with couples, to describe what makes EFT a useful and effective tool to help couple clients, and to provide practical concepts and interventions that can be used right away.

    At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    • Describe the EFT model of couple distress based on attachment theory
    • List the 3 important change events in EFT
    • Implement at least two new interventions that will help with couple de-escalation

    Mindfulness may seem complicated or mysterious, but workshop presenter Rob Fisher says this ancient practice is like a golden retriever who greets you at the door with warmth and anticipation, joy and curiosity.

    Mill Valley-based Fisher teaches internationally in China, Japan, Russia, Ireland, Canada, Israel and Bali and brings his expertise to our annual workshop on July 21 in Mountain View.

    From assessment to intervention, the licensed marriage and family therapist will explore how to integrate the power of present moment experience into your sessions in practical ways that help clients explore and unwind the core models of themselves and of life that predict and influence every aspect of their lives.

    Working with mindfulness adds significant depth, impact and aliveness for therapist and client alike. In this workshop you will learn the principles and practical interventions that use present moment experience to gently access unconscious characterological organization and to explore and change core inter-actional patterns in couples relationships.

    Fisher has been writing about mindfulness since the 1990s and taught at Santa Clara University, John F. Kennedy and the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is a director of the Hakomi Institute of California and author of Experiential Psychotherapy With Couples, A Guide for the Creative Pragmatist and of a number of chapters and articles published internationally on couples therapy and the pyschodynamic use of mindfulness for publications such as the Psychotherapy Networker, The Therapist, The Journal Of Couples Therapy, The USA Body Psychotherapy Journal, Psychotherapy in Australia and others.

    Topics covered include:

    • Tracking the many languages of the unconscious
    • Deepening the therapeutic alliance by connecting to present experience beneath the words
    • Allowing the organic impulse towards health to unfold
    • Simple couple’s assessment • how to access unconscious material through the body • working with present time experience with individuals and with couples • how to explore defenses by supporting them •working with gestures, posture and tensions, • couples sculptures

    Learning Objectives

    • Use mindfulness to explore systemic and intrapsychic issues in couples and individuals

    "Shh, It’s Confidential”: Confidentiality of Mental Health Information Under California and HIPAA Laws
    Presented by Dave Jensen, J.D.

    If confidentiality is the cornerstone of the therapist-patient relationship, it behooves therapists to have an accurate understanding of the laws that affect the confidentiality of patient information. What information must be kept confidential? What information could be shared without an authorization? How can we limit third-party access to outpatient information? What “things” does a practitioner have to do to secure patient information to keep it confidential? In this presentation, David Jensen, J.D., will review California and HIPAA laws regarding the confidentiality of patient information.

    Learning Objectives
    At the end of this presentation you will be able to:

    • Compare the “building blocks” of patient information and confidentiality under California law and HIPAA.
    • Describe the structure of California Civil Code § 56.10 and the importance of written authorizations.
    • Explain the relationship between California Civil Code §§ 56.10 and 56.104 and why this relationship is so important for outpatient psychotherapists.
    • Apply the categories of “T-P-O” to patient information under HIPAA.
    • Assess how HIPAA handles the technical aspects of confidentiality differently than California law does.

    The event includes a hot breakfast buffet, a buffet luncheon, afternoon snacks, drinks, and 6 CEUs. Our venue, Michael’s at Shoreline offers a spacious meeting room and outdoor patio for breaks and meals. Please join us and enjoy being a part of the SCV-CAMFT community. 

    Workshop Handouts: An email with a link to the handouts will be sent to workshop registrants the week of the workshop. We will not provide paper handouts. If you want them at the workshop, you will need to print them and bring them.

    Mid-Region Luncheon
    Presented by Tonja Krautter, LCSW, LCP

    This presentation is designed as an introduction to and an exploration of cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is a form of bullying that uses various forms of technology to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group that is intended to harm others. This phenomenon is relatively new, but is rapidly growing in frequency and complexity with the constant advancements in technology and accessibility to devices. Therefore, cyber bullying is currently being explored by researchers and educators alike to determine causes, factors, prevention, and intervention. In addition, the legal system is faced with prosecuting, defending, and creating new laws to protect victims and enforce proper punishments to perpetrators.

    Learning Objectives
    At the end of this presentation you will be able to:

    • List 3 causes for the rise of cyber bullying
    • Explain 3 differences between traditional bullying and cyber bullying
    • Describe characteristics of victims and perpetrators of cyber bullying
    • Describe 3 intervention and prevention tactics for cyber bullying
