    Presented by Elaine Brady, PhD, LMFT


    We've all heard reports of people being charged with inappropriate sexting, possessing child porn, or posting “revenge porn” online. While we may like to think that these kinds of illegal activities are rare and unlikely to show up in our therapy rooms, the reality is that far more of our clients are engaged in these practices than we’re aware of. Failure to assess for and address these problematic behaviors can allow a fledgling, one-time event to progress into actions resulting in serious legal consequences for our clients.

    While few therapists are aware of it, we are in fact mandated to report illegal cybersex activities of our clients! This presentation will explore the world of cybersex activities and addiction, it’s prevalence, and progression. We'll discuss its illegal aspects and our mandate to report. Assessment tools and resources will be provided.

      Presented by Marty Klein, LMFT

      In this all-day workshop, we’ll look at the structure of the therapeutic relationship and identify the typical places we get stuck—and learn how to move through those impasses with grace, humor, and power.

      Topics we’ll cover include:

      • Power dynamics & power struggles
      • The architecture of intimacy
      • Ten good reasons couples don’t have sex
      • Making, keeping, and breaking agreements
      • Committing to rules of productive conflict

      You’ll learn how to:

      • Help couples identify and change their narratives
      • Help conflict-avoidant people engage with their partner
      • Use guilt as a motivator
      • Use the energy of angry, high-conflict people to move the therapy forward

      These new skills will give you more energy to work with couples—and you’ll do it more effectively.
