    This program is within the scope of practice for LCSW as most will encounter working with clients who have dual diagnosis (55%-65% of all clients in addiction treatment) and millions of 12 Step program members as well.  It is crucial that clinicians are educated about how to blend the clinical and 12 Step models into their practice to support clients in evidence based integrated treatment for their recovery from both addiction and co-occurring disorder.

    This program will teach basic concepts of Trauma-Informed Care- an increasingly important evidenced-based practice for service providers and their organizations.  The workshop will offer clear definitions of types of trauma and stress with a specific focus on the impact of toxic stress on a developing brain.  Understanding the mechanism by which adversity in childhood impacts the adoption of high-risk behaviors and subsequent health outcomes can give us important insight into some of the major public health crises of our time, including obesity and addiction.  Trauma-Informed Care offers a framework from which to understand challenging behaviors and resistance to treatment at both an organizational and face-to-face level.  In addition, using a Trauma-Informed framework can guide specific day to day interactions with clients to become more collaborative, responsive, and ultimately effective.

    This workshop will be limited to twelve participants allowing each to share practice issues with current and past clients. It will combine presentation, discussion and case example analysis and will function as a mutual aid support group for experienced practitioners.. The core practice principles of the Interactional Practice Model will be shared throughout the day and then applied to different settings (e.g., hospitals, schools, private practice), with different populations (e.g., children, adults, seniors) using different modalities (e.g., individual, family and group), dealing with different problems (e.g., mental illness, health issues, trauma) with specific examples selected in response to the practice of the workshop participants. An additional theme will include attention to some of the current Evidenced-Based Practices with a focus on how to use (EBP’s) strategies and interventions by integrating them into the social work clinical model. Attention will also be paid to working with other professionals who have an impact on the social worker’s clients.

    We all know part of retaining good social workers is to provide them with meaningful professional development opportunities. New social workers are entering an exciting and important field that can sometimes be overwhelming. Connecting new social workers with others “in the same boat” can provide supports and resources necessary to be successful in their careers.
    The NASW NH Chapter is pleased to offer a seminar series for new social workers. This seminar series will meet monthly for eight sessions over lunch time. Lynn Stanley, LICSW, Executive Director of NASW NH, will be facilitating this series with help from Melissa Grudinski, MSW, a Chapter Board Member and new social worker herself. We will bring in seasoned social workers to address topics such as getting the most out of your supervision, building your professional network, the role of NASW in their careers, and clinical licensing. The last four sessions will address topics identified by participants. A portion of the time each session will be devoted to participants’ questions and concerns.
    If you are a supervisor of a social worker with fewer than three years of experience, we ask you to recommend they attend. A referral from a supervisor is preferred, though not required.
    The series is free to NASW Members and $220 for non-members.
    Seminar registration is limited to a total of 15. Participants may be at the NASW NH office in Concord or attend virtually via Zoom.
    All seminars meet from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

    This workshop has been approved by  NASW, NH Chapter, for 6.0 Category 1 CE Credits, approval #3314

    Important relationships in our lives evoke strong emotions, both positive and negative. It is not uncommon for a therapist who hears about negative emotions dominating a love relationship, whether in the context of couple or individual therapy, to conclude that this is an indicator that the couple no longer loves one another or that the relationship isn’t viable. This is rarely the case. Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), with its grounding in an understanding of adult attachment, offers a radically different perspective. An evidence-based approach with a proven effectiveness rate, EFT provides the therapist with a way of understanding relationship distress and a way to work with it that is of tremendous value, whether you are a couples therapist or working with individuals around relationship issues.

    This one-day workshop will introduce the basic theory of EFT and describe the EFT road map for how to move a couple from relationship distress to a secure bond.
