    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. This workshop will present 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 look at specific types of emergencies and their unique characteristics, including: lethality, PTSD, sexual assault, personal loss, domestic violence and vicarious traumatization, among others. 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.

    This workshop for mental health clinicians reviews practical preventative strategies to reduce the probability of having ethics complaints made to licensing boards and/or malpractice suits filed against you. The risks of such actions are discussed in the context of sociocultural trends including the practices of managed care companies and the overall decline and weakening of the mental health care system nationwide. In this workshop you will learn about erroneous assumptions/beliefs about ethics complaints and malpractice actions which can increase the likelihood of clients going forward with such actions. Discussion will also focus on ways to mitigate the negative impact of these actions once undertaken. The similarities and differences between ethics complaints filed with state mental health licensing boards and malpractice suits will be clarified.
