Upcoming Trainings

Trauma & Addiction: The Perfect Storm

Presented by Carolyn Burleson, MS, LPC, LCDC, MAC

Trauma and addiction often exist together and can create unique challenges for clinicians treating a client. Because trauma changes how individuals perceive things, individuals with trauma often struggle to navigate life. An individual with trauma can also experience devastating symptoms, which can often lead to the individual seeking something to assist them with coping with the emotional and physical pain of trauma. Many individuals seek relief in different types of addiction. In this webinar, the trainer will assist clinicians in understanding the ways in which addiction and trauma intersect and how to assess and treat the unique challenges of comorbid trauma and addiction.

 

Due to weather conditions in Texas, and the impact to power and internet supply, we will not be hosting this as a live training on February 19th as originally planned. Instead, we will be offering as a recorded webinar.

Grief & Loss: How to Identify & Treat It 

Presented by Jenn Nelson, LCSW

This training will enable clinicians to understand the many facets of grief and loss as well as the importance of treating each individual specific to where they are in their process.  Clinicians will gain the ability to identify high-risk populations and when normal grief symptoms evolve into complicated grief. They will walk away understanding the importance of diagnosing and treating grief separate from trauma or any other issues clients may be experiencing.

Forensic Mental Assessment for

Humanitarian Immigration Cases

Jenifer D. Williams, Ed.D., LPC-S, LPA

Asylum seekers are in flight for their lives. Some flee horrific domestic violence from which their government refuses to protect them.  Others were tortured for their ethnicity, political views, or sexual orientation.  Many flee cartel violence, including femicide and child assassinations. 

But to attain protection in the United States, they must show “credible fear” of return and evidence of the trauma they survived. 

Well written mental health assessments can serve as evidence for events that might otherwise have none, and applications with mental health documentation have a substantially greater success rate. 

This training will serve as an introductory course for clinicians who would like to provide this service.  It will explore connections between mental health and immigration law, questions of diagnosis and validity, and documentation of key events.
