Topics will include factors that lead to risk for substance use, evidence-based mental health interventions, public health risks, special education transitions, sexuality, and social and recreational programming.

    ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY

    Presenters: Richard Lewis, LCPC and Teresa Valliere, LCSW, LADC, CCS

    Thursday and Friday: Feb 27 & 28, 2020, 8:30am - 4:30pm

    Woodfords Club,179 Woodford Street,Portland, ME 04103

    12 CEUS          $179

    Clients get stuck; helpers get stuck with them.  They get stuck in their feelings, thoughts, stories and repetitive behavioral patterns, called psychological rigidity. Persistent psychological rigidity can be seen as the core of most mental disorders.  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) views clients as stuck rather than sick and occasional psychological rigidity and experiential avoidance as a part of the human condition.  ACT is an accepted evidenced based practice helping clients with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioral difficulties. It combines the wisdom and effectiveness of mindfulness practices and behavioral activation.   Integrating ACT into your practice, you can help your clients to:

    Unhook from negative/harmful thoughts

    Be more present

    Accept what cannot be changed

    Focus on what’s most important in their lives

    Take committed action toward their values

    Have a kinder and more realistic view of themselves

    Using a combination of didactic presentation and experiential exercises, this workshop will introduce ACT model, philosophy and core concepts of psychological rigidity and flexibility.  Attendees will leave this training with a basic understanding of ACT approaches and with specific interventions they can employ immediately.  This workshop is a combination of didactic material, individual reflections, group discussion, and experiential activities. 

    Target Audience: Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals, Social Workers, Psychologists, Physicians, Nurses, Therapists, Counseling Staff, Alcohol and Drug Counselors, and clinical staff in mental health, substance abuse, co-occurring, behavioral or health settings.

    The Power of Circles: Group Leader Workshop

    Presented by Teresa Valliere, LCSW, LADC, CCS

    Thursday and Friday: Jan 30 & 31, 2020, 8:30am - 4:30pm

    12 CEUS          $179

    Woodfords Club, 179 Woodford Street, Portland, ME 04103

    The healing effect of group is widely accepted in the fields of substance abuse, mental and behavioral health. Most healthcare organizations seek to take advantage of group dynamics to access and encourage the human potential to grow, heal and change. While the content and focus of groups varies across settings, many of the powerful processes of group work are universal.  

    This 2-day workshop is designed for beginner and experienced group facilitators to step back and take a broader view of group functioning, as well as lean in and explore the challenges within their practice.  We will examine and demonstrate evolution, neurobiology, purpose, process, content and dynamics as they play out in a group setting.   Participants will share ideas on best practices, identify their strengths and areas for improvement, and reinvigorate passion for group. 

    This workshop is active and will change the way you experience groups. It is a gentle and illustrative method of demonstrating how a group of strangers can become a circle of support, growth and healing. It Built on six core processes of psychological flexibility (defusion, expansion, presence, perspective, values and committed actions) of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, it is a combination of didactic material, individual reflections, dyads and group, and other experiential activities.  

    Target Audience:   Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals, Physicians, Nurses, Therapists, Counseling Staff, Alcohol and Drug Counselors, and clinical staff currently facilitating or interested in developing groups in those settings.   Certificates provided. 12 CEUS for LCSW, LCPC, LMFT, LADC, CCS, PhD, PsyD. Psychology and Alcohol and Drug Approval pending.
