Cultural Competence in Working with HIV/AIDS Population

Although the trajectory of the HIV/AIDS epidemic has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, addressing the psychosocial needs of patients living with HIV/AIDS remains vital. Ensuring the effective delivery of services demands that interventions be rooted in cultural competence and aimed at vulnerable populations. In this course we will examine culture specifics regarding working with and interventions for multiple ethnicities. We will examine interventions that effectively integrates culturally competent practice with traditional social work practice with groups’ skills to provide an arena for participants to explore issues commonly faced by patients living with HIV/AIDS in a cultural context. The identification and explanation of cultural factors inherent to any culture is intended to help social workers and other health care professionals better understand the roots of their patients’ beliefs and understanding of their HIV/AIDS condition as well as highlight some of the obstacles they cause.

This course offers 3 Hours of HIV (SS). 

Ethics & Boundaries: Pitfalls and Dilemmas

This course is based upon a study of responses from Social Workers, Therapists, Psychologists/Psychiatrists regarding actual incidences of ethical dilemmas. The course provides a mental health professional with solid information regarding the nature and incidence of various types of ethical dilemmas that are encountered while practicing today. We will examine the various types of ethical dilemmas that occur in clinical practice, identify the most common types of ethical dilemmas encountered today, and identify examples of reported modern day ethical concerns. This course will provide a professional with detailed information about ethical problems that occur in therapy.

This course offers 3 Hours of Ethics (SS)

Experiential Therapy & Evidence-Based Practices: An Integration

Experiential therapy is under increasing pressure to become more ‘evidence-based’. As a result, practitioners now need to get to grips with what constitutes ‘evidence’ and how to ensure that their practice is evidence-based in ways that are appropriate to the discipline. As such, many clinicians are learning how to compliment the use of Evidence-Based Practices with the use of Experiental Therapy in order allow the client an additional creative medium in which to express many suppressed or unconscious concerns.  Experiential therapies such as Express Arts, Psychodrama, Narrative, and Equine move the client and therapist from the traditional talk therapy roles and into a process that may be less provocative. In this course we will review various Evidence-Based Practice techniques and learn how to integrate the appropriate Experiental Therapy techniques into the therapeutic treatment process.

This course offers 3 Hours of EBT (SS)

Trauma & Addiction: Breaking the Cycle

In this course participants will explore the cycle of trauma and addiction – the self-medicating with drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling or any excessive behavior to ignore the emotional pain that is the result of trauma. While a number of studies attribute the relationship between childhood trauma and addiction to disruptions in the brain structure caused by the stress of trauma, there have also been a number of other, simpler explanations proposed. With about two-thirds of all addicts having previously experienced some type of physical or sexual trauma (and especially in childhood), it’s extremely important to understand how trauma causes increased vulnerability to addiction. Knowing when an individual has experienced some type of trauma could mark him or her as being at higher risk for addiction when there might not have been any other indicators, allowing the individual to take preventative measures.

This course offers 3 Hours of PSY (SS)

Cindy Stober, LPC, LCASDirector of Addictions Department, Fellowship Health Resources, Raleigh, NC

“I thoroughly enjoyed this training workshop as it challenged me to look at situations that can arise in Clinical Supervision that I had not previously entertained. It was a small training workshop so it was highly interactive and I enjoyed engaging with the other profressional participants. The food was GREAT as well – breakfast and lunch both days were included!”
