      Presenter:  Lois Ingber, LCSW, 

      Description: 

      Alfred Adler, MD (1870-1937), along with Freud and Jung, was one of the three patriarchs of the field of psychology. He said, “Equality is the ironclad logic of social living.” Human beings are more likely to thrive in relationships of equality and mutual respect, and when these are absent or diminished, compensatory striving leads to symptomatic expressions and misbehaviors.

      Through experiential activities, discussions and mini-lecture, Ms. Ingber, LCSW & Certified Positive Discipline Lead Trainer, will share tenets of Adlerian Psychology, neuroscience and political systems to show the connection between mental health and social justice. Practical tools from Positive Discipline which promote relationships of mutual respect will be shared for use with clients.

      Learning Objectives:

      1. Participants will recognize how beliefs about belonging and significance relate to mental health and social justice, and influence relationship dynamics in the home, school and workplace.
      2. Participants will identify obstacles to making the shift from vertical to horizontal relationships as well as tools to facilitate the shift.
      3. Participants will learn Positive Discipline tools for use in their work with clients which build relationships of mutual respect.

      About the Presenter: 

      Ms. Ingber, LCSW, has been a Trainer/Consultant in her private business since 2007. She offers trainings, workshops, consultation and classes for parents, schools, and groups in Positive Discipline and Adlerian Psychology

      Presenter: Martin Hsia, Psy.D. | Clinical Director at The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Southern California (CBT SoCal)

      www.CBTSoCal.com 

      SUMMARY OF PRESENTATION: OCD is a mental health issue that the general public is very familiar with, and is frequently associated with ritualistic hand-washing, repetitive checking of locks, doors, and buttons, and often a sense of perfectionism. However, truly understanding OCD in its complexity and variations requires a more in depth discussion, lest even well-meaning mental health professionals risk misunderstanding and mistreating the issue in their clients. This presentation is aimed at equipping participants to more accurately understand, assess for, treat OCD in clinical contexts. Participants will become versed in the range of OCD presentations, and the nuances of how OCD often begins, how it is maintained, how it worsens, and how it can be treated. With the use of case examples, participants will learn about implementing Exposure with Response Prevention to treat OCD among youth and adults. This presentation will be dynamic and interactive, including ample time for Q+A.

      LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

      1. Participants will learn sophisticated ways of identifying and differentially diagnosing OCD in their clients.
      2. Participants will learn about the primary variants of OCD presentations.
      3. Participants will learn about the psychological and behavioral phenomena which maintain and exacerbate OCD.
      4. Participants will learn about implementing Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP), the gold standard treatment for OCD.
