    As much as those in the helping profession would prefer otherwise, individuals tend to ask for help with their problems only when they have reached crisis proportions. Learn the theories and skills needed to manage a crisis to a successful conclusion, taking advantage of the opportunities for change and growth that also occur. You will review specific types of emergencies and their unique characteristics including: lethality, PTSD, sexual assault, personal loss, domestic violence and vicarious traumatization. Information and techniques will be introduced through PowerPoint, discussion, and role-plays. New as well as experienced professionals will benefit.

    An emergent body of research shows that coaching is more powerful in addressing symptoms of ADHD than other forms of support such as psychotherapy. Coaches are specifically trained to help children with ADHD learn to manage time, break down daunting tasks into manageable steps, keep themselves organized, think proactively, use mindfulness techniques, and learn to check their thinking/acting at intervals. This workshop will define the difference and delineate the effective techniques unique to coaching children and teens with ADHD. The content of the coaching plan is contrasted and merged with the process of coaching throughout the workshop. This is an experiential workshop where you will work with one another to learn and practice ADHD coaching strategies.

    Three (3) Clinical 1 and Suicide Prevention CEUs have been applied for through NH NASW – pending approval

    While suicide is identified as a major public health issue by the U.S. Surgeon General, and is listed as one of the top ten leading causes of death in our country, it continues to be a difficult topic to discuss and address. It is essential that clinicians and social service providers become more in tune with their own thoughts and views about suicide, as well as become more aware of some of the general barriers to suicide prevention. This training will use Connect Suicide Prevention Program protocols and training materials, which are based on evidence-supported research.
    It takes a community to prevent suicide! This training will introduce clinicians to the risk factors and warning signs for older adults who may be at risk for suicide. It will help participants recognize when someone may be suicidal, learn how to connect with them and how to lead them to help and resources.

    This workshop reviews proactive strategies to reduce the probability of mental health licensing board ethics complaints and the filing of malpractice suits. The similarities and differences between ethics complaints filed with state mental health licensing boards and malpractice suits will be clarified. The risks of such actions are discussed in the context of socio-cultural trends, including the practices of managed care companies, and the overall decline and weakening of the mental health care system nationwide. This workshop reviews erroneous assumptions and beliefs about ethics complaints and malpractice actions, as well as risk factors that can increase the likelihood of clients taking such actions. Risk management strategies to lower risk and mitigate the impact of a complaint or a suit will also be reviewed.

    New Workshop!

    Submitted to NASW, NH Chapter, for CE Credits

    Human beings are born with biological and psychological systems that can lead to drug and alcohol problems. Drug and alcohol problems do not happen right away: addiction is a process. Teens use drugs in a non-problem way BEFORE they have substance abuse problems. The individualized cycle develops for each person according to their family, social and school environments. As well, each person goes through a different cycle for each substance he/she experiments with: each person has a unique relationship with each drug. This seminar will elaborate and emphasize the role of coaching children and teens with alcohol and drug problems. Theories of addiction will be described and critiqued, including the Gateway model, the Disease model and the Biopsychosocial model. Brain change due to alcohol and drug problems will also be reviewed. You will also discuss classes of drugs likely to be abused including: depressants, hallucinogens, stimulants and opiates. Medicine currently used to treat alcohol and drug addiction will be explained. There are numerous treatment programs to help prevent alcohol and drug abuse in children and teens and many methods of treatment once the teen has moved down the road toward addiction. These will also be discussed.
