    Parents Living with Loss is a bereavement group that meets monthly and is open to all who mourn the loss of a child—regardless of the age of the child at the time of death, the years since the loss occurred, or the funeral home that was used.

    The group welcomes visitors each month under the gentle guidance of two mothers who lost their children to tragic circumstances.

    A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    If you’ve heard of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), you know it works to heal trauma and you want to know more, this workshop is for you! Attend this unique workshop and learn essential information you need to know about EMDR.

    Dr. Elaine Strid, EMDR-Trained Therapist, will first teach you about EMDR and the neurobiology of how EMDR can change the brain. Then she will do a complete live demonstration or a video in the room so you can see EMDR in action!

    In this unique EMDR workshop, you will understand the benefit of EMDR and the impact it can have on your clinical work. You will also learn the 8 stages of EMDR Therapy and have more than three hours of practice time with some of the foundational EDMR skills.

    Dr. Strid hears often from fellow trauma clinicians that they do a great job working with clients to cope better with trauma; however, clients claim that they feel “filthy and powerless” about themselves. Elaine will show you how EMDR can help clients move forward to truly heal from the inside out and how to live a fulfilling life again.

    In this course, participants will learn advanced clinical approaches to diagnosing and differentiating clinical presentations of anxiety, depression, bipolar, and personality disorders. Differential diagnosis will be emphasized, and decision-making about treatment with medications and/or psychotherapies, and which specific ones, will be discussed in detail. The presentation will be very interactive, and consistently clinical and related to concrete cases. Emphasis will be placed on a little understood and used approach: the existential/humanistic methods of psychotherapy. The overall approach will be an integrated way of thinking about mental health practice that goes beyond simplicities of DSM definitions, FDA-indication based use of drugs and eclectic psychotherapies. A more integrative approach will be offered that is scientific without being reductionistic and humanistic without being vague.

    For your students, death, illness, divorce, natural disaster, community violence, or even a move to a new school can result in grief reactions and related trauma. Any of these events can trigger plummeting grades, decreased class participation, negative acting-out behavior, or dropping out of extracurricular activities. Attend this engaging seminar and learn how the intensity and duration of the different stages of child/adolescent grief will manifest in school. Students may break down crying, become emotionally withdrawn, severely depressed, or show extreme mood swings. Dr. Bearoff will show you specific strategies, techniques and interventions to provide the appropriate support to effectively help students dealing with trauma, grief and loss. Whether you are a classroom teacher, a school counselor, an administrator or support staff you will leave this seminar armed with interventions to address grief, tragedy and trauma on an individual level, a classroom level and even a school-wide level.

    Do you ever feel helpless and frustrated in caring for patients at end of life who suffer from horrific, unavoidable wounds? Have you ever been told there is nothing else you can do for a patient who is at end of life? That simply is NOT true! Maintaining hope, comfort and dignity is by far one of the most important things we can do for our patients in relieving their suffering. Wounds caused by cancer, vascular insufficiency or skin failure are overwhelming for patients and caregivers. This seminar will provide an in-depth approach to palliative wound care, exploring options to care for patients with chronic wounds, fistulas, fungating wounds and terminal Kennedy ulcers. You will become prepared to care for those patients suffering from challenging wounds at end of life with confidence, compassion and knowledge. 

    Wound pictures from actual patients will be shared and case studies will be discussed to drive home important points. You will learn based on the different etiologies and presentations, how to choose the best dressing, when debridement is appropriate and formulary creation that will be helpful to your organization. There will be "hands-on" opportunities to test out the different types of wound care dressings available, as well as the latest alternative homeopathic treatment options. This in-depth seminar is "useable" information that you can easily apply in caring for your most complex wound patients and quickly allows you to become a valuable resource for your team
