    Addressing Addiction: Fostering Attachment with (EFT) Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – Sacramento-Davis

     

    March 29 & 30, 2019

     

    The Sacramento EFT Center Presents:

     

    ADDRESSING ADDICTION: FOSTERING ATTACHMENT WITH (EFT) EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED COUPLES THERAPY

    with Michael Barnett, EFT Trainer

     

    Drs. Nancy and Paul Aikin, Creators of HMT®/LMG, are EFT Certified Trainers, Supervisors & Therapists and Directors of the Sacramento-Davis EFT Center.

     

    Description of workshop:

    Psychotherapy with couples is both multi-layered and complex, often challenging the most skilled of therapists. In this fast-paced, technology-driven era that we live in, where true connection is often at a premium, substance use has escalated to epidemic proportions. It is not uncommon for couple’s therapists to be confronted with the additional challenge of contending with a pernicious “third-party” that lurks within the shadows of distressed relationships: Addiction. Although we have the superb modality, EFT, to help couples find their way to genuine, loving communion with one another, addictions present very significant obstacles to effectively working with couples that seek our services. In this two-day experiential training, we will explore specific, and necessary ways to tailor EFT skills and interventions in order to better address the impact that addiction has on the couple therapy process.


    This interactive workshop will create a safe environment together to use role-plays, video clip demonstrations, and didactic material for clinical discussion and personal exploration.


    EFT THERAPISTS WILL LEARN:

    *  An overview of addictive processes; physical, relational, and emotional

    *  How to understand addiction through the attachment lens

    *  How addiction impacts the system: Ways to place addictive behaviors into the negative        cycle

    *  The impact of addiction on emotional fluency and process

    *  Leveraging attachment processes to break through addictive denial

    *  The high prevalence of attachment injuries and other relational trauma where addiction        is present

     

    Location:

    Sacramento-Davis (exact location TBA)

    Dear Community Stakeholders~

    A collaborative of over 25 public and private stakeholders have been meeting to plan a navigation center for unsheltered adults in Shasta County. “The PLACE” will be a navigation center with temporary housing and multiple services to assist unsheltered adults, including populations currently excluded from other local shelters, overcoming barriers contributing to homelessness and navigating towards permanent supportive housing. The PLACE will:

    ·     Consist up to 70 shelter beds for non-violent individuals unable to be served at the mission;

    ·     Provide substance use and mental health screening, case management, showers, laundry and a kennel;

    ·     Offer support for persons wanting to be reunited with family or friends in another location;

    ·     Provide outreach and placement for community treatment programs, supportive housing resources, while coordinating with local providers for additional co-located services;

    ·     Remain engaged with law enforcement to ensure safety of community and individuals at the facility; and,

    ·     Continue ongoing research and monitoring of other navigation centers to ensure sustainability.

    The community will benefit from this effort by:

    ·     Reducing individuals living unsheltered with posi­tive exit towards permanent supportive housing;

    ·     Enforcing local ordinances allowing law enforcement to relocate unsheltered individuals;

    ·     Reducing number of encampments, communicable disease risk, and environ­mental clean-up costs in Redding; and,

    ·     Increasing fire prevention and safety.

    A lot of progress has been made in a very short time. The collaborative has been working diligently and has toured other similar facilities in California, identified potential services, developed workflow drafts, visited potential properties, and identified budget and potential financing. To date, the project has advanced with implementation of a pilot sobering center at the Empire Recovery Center, secured $1.7 million in funding from the Homeless Emergency Assistance Program and completed a review of properties by an architect with funding provided by the City of Redding.   At this time, the PLACE will be developed in phases with the goal of co-locating medical respite services to address persons too ill or frail to recover from a physical illness or injury, sobering services for non-violent intoxicated individuals an area to rest and recover until they are sober, and expanding additional co-located services as resources allow.

     

    The purpose of this correspondence is to invite you to an informational meeting on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 from 8:30-10:00 a.m.atthe Veterans Hall located at 1605 Yuba Street to discuss the PLACE.  During this meeting we will provide an update on our planning activities, solicit feedback to various components of the center and facilitate a Q & A session.

     

    Your feedback and input to this project is important.  We hope you can come.

    Tough Calls, Moral Dilemmas, Technology and More

    presented by: Benjamin E. Caldwell, PsyD, LMFT 

     

    Description

    Our morals and values inevitably influence our work. When we have clear legal and ethical standards to guide us, we defer to those standards. But often, when faced with difficult decisions, our standards offer conflicting guidance, or none at all. This can confuse clients, who wonder whether their therapist will truly understand or support their choices.  Through the use of case examples, this workshop will show how our individual morals and values influence therapy work even when we seek to appear neutral; how to identify your own morals and values relevant to your practice; and why owning those values matters.

     

    Objectives

     

    * Identify at least two personal morals and values most relevant to your psychotherapy practice

     

    * Differentiate between a personal opinion, clinical opinion, advice giving, and imposing personal values

     

    * Construct a framework for clinical and ethical decision-making that integrates personal morals and values in a manner that is within professional ethical boundaries and appropriate to your clientele

     

    * Identify three common frameworks for making value-based decisions

     

    * Identify at least two implications from court cases involving mental healt students' moral decision making
