In this engaging workshop, David will lead you through an exploration of sex therapy that transcends traditional approaches.

Acquire and practice tools for conducting biopsychosocial assessments and addressing sexual concerns with confidence and sensitivity. Join us for a lively and interactive workshop on sex therapy!

    Educational Goals

Additionally, therapists will be equipped with practical tools and techniques for conducting biopsychosocial assessments to address sexual concerns effectively. Furthermore, the talk aims to enhance therapists' confidence in discussing sex with clients, particularly men, by providing strategies to navigate shame, anxiety, and entitlement within therapeutic settings.

    • Identify six categories treated within sex therapy.
    • Describe the difference between the linear model and the circular model of sex.

    This Introduction to Brainspotting mini-course introduces students to the theory, research, and best practices of Brainspotting, how it works to heal trauma and other mental health conditions, education on the importance of reaching the deepest regions of the brain in order to have resolution, and the basic ‘frames’ or techniques used to engage clients via a specific eye position, or “Brainspot,” so that they can process their trauma and be relieved of other diagnoses and mental health issues such as PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety.

    "Brainspotting" is a powerful, brain-based trauma therapy that bridges the gap between the mind and the body. Brainspotting accesses the deepest regions of the brain where traumatized clients store their traumas and survival terror. It works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trauma, dissociation, anxiety, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma, which include chronic anxiety, insomnia, and numbing are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy.

    Brainspotting is adaptable to almost all areas of specialization. It provides therapists with powerful tools which enable their clients to quickly and effectively focus and process through deep brain sources of many emotional, somatic, cognitive, relational and performance problems. Attention is given in this course to the utilization and integration of Brainspotting into ongoing treatment, including highly dissociative clients. Two peer reviewed studies demonstrated that Brainspotting was as effective as EMDR for reducing PTSD symptoms and Generalized Anxiety Disorder symptoms. "Brainspotting" was voted the most effective trauma treatment by the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre after a five-year study comparing over 25 therapeutic modalities.

    Program Goals

    After taking part in this course, participants will have greater understanding of the clinical skills required to successfully alleviate the suffering of their clients who are coping with the various signs and symptoms of unresolved  traumatic stress.  Attendees will learn how Brainspotting can heal a myriad of mental health conditions effectively along with the importance of always following their clients’ lead as they process, assuring that participants won’t exert undue influence with their own values, beliefs, or identities that may adversely impact the clients’ therapeutic process. They will go back to their practices with an understanding of this new modality, having learned the foundation of alleviating the symptoms of unresolved traumatic stress such as anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, rage, hypervigilance, recurring nightmares, dissociation and chronic fatigue. Participants will move forward with the knowledge that they can work within their scope of practice and competence and follow the ethics of staying current with developments in their field through education and witnessing a  clinical experience of a client receiving Brainspotting. The goal for the client  is a reduction of their disturbance levels in each session and throughout the therapeutic process.

    Learning Objectives

    By the end of this course participants will be able to:

        1. Participants will be staying current in the field of brain science by being able to name the two regions of the brain most involved in regulating a dysregulated nervous system.  
        2. Participants will be able to name three symptoms of being “Stuck On” (Overly Sympathetic in the Autonomic Nervous System) and three symptoms of being “Stuck Off” (Overly Parasympathetic in The Autonomic Nervous System).
        3. Participants will be able to explain the difference between activated eye positions (“Brainspots”) and resource eye positions (“Brainspots”).
        4. Participants will be able to identify the two times during a Brainspotting session that they should numerically assess their clients’ subjective units of disturbance (0-10).
        5. Participants will be able to avoid exerting undue influence on the process and treatment of their clients by being able to name and follow the two core principles of Brainspotting by allowing “uncertainty” and “staying in the tail of the comet” while the client mindfully processes.
        6. Participants will be able to identify the eight-steps of setting up a Brainspotting session.

              About the Presenter

              Lisa Larson has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 25 years. After seven years in private practice doing Solution Focused or "talk therapy", Lisa experienced a traumatic event that transformed the course of her life as well as her therapeutic orientation. She was trained by the founder of EMDR and later trained with the creator of Brainspotting, Dr. David Grand. She immediately recognized the power and effectiveness of Brainspotting as she witnessed her severely traumatized clients heal quickly and permanently. She learned that her years as a talk therapist were missing the most crucial piece required to heal those with trauma, the deepest regions of the brain where trauma is stored. (The limbic system, Midbrain and the Brainstem.)

              The topic of in-laws is a loaded one almost anywhere in the world. In the South Asian community it is a much more charged relationship, with the mothers-in-law being imbued with power that is almost mystifying. Mothers-in-law and their relationship with their daughters-in-law can make or break a family's health, with the daughters-in-law shouldering an unfair part of the burden.

              Let us unpack the nuances of the relationship, its origin, the present-day difficulties, and the health of the family unit by understanding how this very important dynamic underlies many conflicted family beginnings in the culture. We will also look at ways to help a couple navigate speaking about a very explosive cultural turning point. Sexism, gendered expectations, re-plays of trauma, internalized sexism, power-plays, middle-aged coming of age, and broken dreams! Seriously though, this is a huge problem in many families and is a must-know topic in working with the culture.

              Program Goal

              The goal of this presentation is to learn about mothers-in-law in South Asian families, why this is important in the culture, how it impacts the couple's emotional health, how power dynamics work in the family, and how to help a couple speak about a difficult topic.

              Learning Objectives

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

                                As we enter the holiday season, there is no gift less desired by a therapist than being served with a subpoena. In this three-hour webinar, attendees will learn the purpose of different types of subpoenas, how to digest a subpoena, steps to take in responding to a subpoena, and the role of the psychotherapist-patient privilege.

                                  Measurable Learning Objectives

                                  Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

                                  • Analyze a subpoena to determine who issued the subpoena, what type of documents or testimony are requested, and the appropriate next steps in responding to a subpoena seeking records or testimony.
                                  • Identify the holder of the psychotherapist-patient privilege, when it is appropriate for a therapist to assert the psychotherapist-patient privilege on behalf of a patient, and when such an objection is not appropriate.
