    Mid-Region Luncheon

    Presented by Edna Wallace, LMFT


    There is a lot of talk of baby boomers and how older adults will be the largest sector of the population. However, the older adult population remains for a large part still fairly invisible and misunderstood. They struggle with complex issues such as diminishing physical and mental capacities and a plethora of losses or changes—in independence (driving capability), partner, family members, friends, identity and purpose, and sometimes their homes.

    Depression and anxiety often go unnoticed, with the older adult (or a close family member) not recognizing the dropping of activities or over-sleeping as symptoms of any disorder. There is still more resistance and internalized stigma toward mental health and accompanying treatment in older adults as opposed to their younger counterparts.

    To that end, El Camino Hospital in Mountain View offers OATS (Older Adult Transitions Services), an outpatient clinic covered by Medicare that treats depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder specifically in older adults. Patients can refer themselves or have a family member or doctor refer them. This clinic helps the depressed person manifest a life worth living—with purpose and connection. OATS offers two weekly groups—a support group and a skills group—along with monthly case management and psychiatrist visits.

    At this presentation, Edna will use OATS case studies to illustrate the complex interplay of the clinical, existential, medical, and connection aspects of working with this population. Edna’s presentation will be partly experiential, giving the audience a chance to try some of the exercises and techniques that have worked well with older adults.

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

    • Name three commonly held mistaken beliefs about the older adult population 
    • Identify four core needs and sensitivities of this population 
    • Develop an approach to working with older adults that involves compassion, patience, and careful assessment. 
    • Name two resources in the community that treat older adults suffering from anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

    About the Presenter
    Edna Wallace has been providing psychotherapy for over 15 years. She has worked with the older adult community for the majority of that time, since 2007, when she first started working at OATS. For the last ten years, she has also been involved in the local (and national) group therapy communities; given talks at various senior centers in the community; led a Caregivers Support Group for many years; and is part of Geri-Team—a consortium of geriatric providers in the South Bay. Edna also has a small private practice in Los Altos and co-leads a weekly interpersonal process group with Dr. Benjamin Page. Edna can be reached at www.ednawallace.com.

    annual summer workshop

    Presented by Roy Huggins, LPC NCC


    Venue may change. We'll notify everyone if that happens.

    Mental health clinicians foster health in our clients wherever they are in the process, and we need the correct tools to help us do that. Myths abound about legally and ethically appropriate ways to meet client desires for email, texting, and online video. We hear about the growing pressure to switch to electronic records and many of us already see value in paperless practices.

    This training will take attendees from an exploration of our relationships with technology and “digital confidentiality,” through how to appropriately use that technology in our practices, and finally to a concrete demonstration of how to perform the processes required for compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. All the while, we will learn concrete techniques and tools side-by-side with relevant ethics codes, professional guidelines, and HIPAA Security standards for digital technology in mental health care.

    Go beyond just the HIPAA checklists and join a technologist/professional counselor to learn realistic, non-fear based rules of HIPAA compliance, ethics codes on technology, and how we use technology to help clients and ourselves.
