DESCRIPTIONS OF EACH WORKSHOP ARE BELOW:

Workshop # 1 Description of Anxiety Workshop: (Thurs. May 30, 9-12)

Remember the workshop I did last year called ‘The Least Depressing Workshop on Depression You’ll Ever Attend’? 
This workshop is going to do for anxiety what that workshop did for depression: present facts, research, importance of understanding anxiety, types of anxiety, need/no need for medication, if medication is needed then what kind, and more. I’ve got some terrific information to share with you about what therapists must know to appropriately and helpfully treat clients suffering (yes, suffering) from anxiety and to help the client manage a potentially debilitating issue. Anxiety is associated with significant functional impairment and high direct and indirect costs.

Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the U.S., affecting close to 40 million adults, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), surpassing even depression. It's estimated that approximately 10 percent of teenagers and 40 percent of adults suffer from an anxiety disorder of some kind. That’s about 18% of the population! However, only about one-third of those who struggle with anxiety receive treatment. One likely reason for this may be the stigma surrounding mental health. Due to this stigma, those who struggle with mental health concerns may lack social support, become isolated, and carry low self-esteem. The good new is that anxiety disorders are highly treatable. Attend to learn the newest research on how to help clients struggling with anxiety.

Workshop # 2 Description of ‘Holistic Approach……’ (Thurs. May 30: 1:00-4:00) 


Definition of Holistic: addressing, learning about, and taking into consideration all facets of being human. We can’t take care of ourselves in a way that keeps us being our best selves if we don’t examine each part of our lives and its impact on us and ultimately on our clients. We’ll explore several components of self-care such as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health just to name a few. The aim is to know when we’re out of balance it and to what to do to regain that balance. Think about this quote: I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” – Audre Lorde

Workshop # 3 Description of the Ethics Workshop (Thurs. June 6, 9:00-3:00) 


Essentially ethics is about morality and behaving with integrity. Remember from graduate school: ‘Do good and do no harm’? At its core, ethics is about doing the right thing. The only problem is that so many times we just don’t know what the right thing to do is. This workshop will provide 11 principles to help guide therapists when they’re faced with the challenge of discerning just what’s right or wrong when faced with difficult decisions.
