LGBTQIA+ Youth & Families
August 10, 2022
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (6 CEUs – No MFT CEUs)
Presented by Kynetta Sugar McFarlane, PsyD
REGISTER HERE
Sexual minority or queer youth are coming out at earlier ages, in part attributed to the higher visibility of LGBT people in everyday life, the media, and greater access to information about sexual minorities.  Unfortunately, youth who identify as LGBT have higher risk factors for suicidality, substance abuse, bullying, and homelessness.  Due to these increased risk factors, clinicians need to be able to understand and provide support to LGBT youth and their families.  This training will begin by introducing the concept of queer theory and exploring how privilege and prejudice effect queer youth.  Participants will learn current terminology while exploring LGBTQ history and the developmental processes of queer youth.  Case examples, clinical tools, and resources will be reviewed.  After the break, we’ll focus on how to create an affirming therapeutic environment and review The Family Acceptance Project, which is an evidence-based intervention that focuses on reducing family rejection.   We will also explore ways to assist LGBT youth at school and review current federal and state rights and laws related to LGBT people.


Trauma-Informed Family Engagement: Understanding Implicit Bias & Structural Racism

Join us to explore what it means to be trauma informed in our engagement with families. Together we will explore the cultural and historical context of trauma, learn about structural racism and our own implicit bias.  We will unpack the potential impact of those issues on our engagement with families. Participants will identify the six guiding principles to trauma informed care, the importance of authentic family engagement as well as strategies for the implementation of trauma informed family engagement practices.


Understanding the Culture of Poverty
September 6, 2022
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (6 CEUs – No MFT CEUs)
Presented by Kynetta Sugar McFarlane, PsyD
REGISTER HERE

All individuals exist in a cultural context, and as clinicians we need to be able to understand how to recognize and address those various cultures in treatment.  Unfortunately, the culture of poverty is frequently not addressed.  This training will explore the culture of poverty experientially.  Clinicians will examine the hidden rules among classes, the differences between generational and situational poverty, and how these factors can shift and inform the therapeutic relationship.  Finally, we’ll identify therapeutic methods to apply this knowledge with our clients.


Youth Suicidality: Safety Planning & Lethal Means Counseling
This virtual workshop will explore current issues and concerns around youth and young adult suicidality. We will identify critical elements in suicide safety planning and examine the importance of counseling on access to lethal means. Safety plans are designed to support suicide prevention by providing action steps an individual can take when feeling suicidal. Intentionally reducing access to lethal means can contribute to whether a person at risk for suicide lives or dies. We will identify practical skills and strategies that can immediately be implemented with current clients.
