    Presenter:  Allen Lipscomb,  PsyD, LCSW

    Racialized traumatic grief for African American/Black men can come as a result of witnessing the traumatic unjust death and murder of another unarmed Black man regardless of proximity and kinship. In addition, grief can come from racialized experiences and encounters in society and the blatant disregard of Black bodies in America. Bonding through recognition to promote understanding and healing (a.k.a. BRuH Approach to Therapy or BAT) can be utilized as an auxiliary approach in conjunction with other therapeutic models, protocols and interventions. This presentation introduces a culturally congruent, anti-oppressive and antiracist therapeutic approach for promoting healing among African American/Black men and youth who are receiving psychotherapy and other related counseling services. Specifically, African American/Black men and youth who have experienced racialized traumatic grief and loss.

    This workshop is designed for mental health clinicians and students at all levels of experience, education and licensure. The goal is to teach, inform and encourage mental health practitioners to provide anti-oppressive and antiracist clinical services to Black men and youth experiencing loss.

    Learning objectives:

    At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify how African American/Black men and youth respond to grief, loss and trauma.
    2. Examine stigmas, stereotypes and cultural beliefs about Black male expressing their emotions as it relates to loss.
    3. Identify the six common Black Male Grief Reactions (BMGR) to traumatic losses.
    4. Learn three ways to support, advocate and/or treat the unique grief reactions exhibited by Black men and youth utilizing the BRUH Approach to Therapy (BAT).

     ABOUT THE WORKSHOP


    Presenter: Wanda Jewell, MSW, PhD, LCSW

    Description: 

    This workshop series of the Art of Psychotherapy has been organized by Dr. Tanya Moradians, CSCSW Coordinator of the San Fernando Valley District and Dr. Wanda Jewell, Professor at the USC School of Social Work.

    The series focuses on the traditional psychodynamic framework that has been the underpinnings of Clinical Social Work since its beginning. Currently, the Schools of Social Work throughout the country are no longer offering classes on psychodynamic psychotherapy. The psychodynamic framework is replaced with short-term, evidenced based methods of treatment.

    By offering this series, we hope that the psychodynamic framework will continue to be learned and understood by new Social Work students, and shared among more experienced practitioners. It is a framework that can also include use of short-term therapies. Although this series is not an exhaustive explanation of psychodynamic psychotherapy, it is offered as a stimulus for those who may be interested to pursue further knowledge of this framework.

    In this workshop #6, Dr. Jewell will continue the discussion of middle phase issues.

    People tend to get stuck in default patterns of behavior and reactions to life situations, likely learned as safety measures in childhood. The therapist can identify and work with these and other issues as they emerge in the therapy as shifting patterns within clients, helping clients to acquire insight and new strategies for a more fulfilling life.

    Dr. Jewell will go into more depth with some of the concepts mentioned in workshop #5: ego functions and defenses, use of theory, and typical stress responses, with examples of how these elements play out as typical coping strategies. We will include a discussion of the neurobiology of trauma and recovery including an introduction to polyvagal theory.

    As in past workshops, our format will include a panel of experienced clinicians to respond to audience questions and comments.

    Please join us for this discussion on the middle phase of the therapeutic relationship.

    Previous recordings of this series, number 1 through 5, are available free of charge to CSCSW members and students and available to non-members for a fee.

         ABOUT THE WORKSHOP


        Presenter: 
         Paul Lesnik, LCSW, TEP

        Description: 

        Psychodrama is a powerful modality that allows clients to explore feelings experientially in a safe environment. Sociometry, the underpinning of all group work, explores the choices we make and how these choices either bring us closer to or farther away from connection to others. In a group, sociometry makes apparent an invisible web of connection; the more we make the invisible connections between group members visible, the more opportunity they have to be connected to each other and as a group. This aids the clients in co-creating the group as a safe container necessary for taking personal risks and doing their therapeutic work.

        Participants will engage in sociometric exercises including Spectrograms and Locograms and Sociometric Choice Making with the goal of implementing these in their work with client groups. The training will link some of Yalom’s therapeutic aspects of a group to sociometry and action methods.

        At the end of this training, participants will:

        1. Gain knowledge about sociometry and psychodrama techniques as interventions in action in a telehealth format
        2. Explore the interplay of creativity and spontaneity and how to bring these concepts to aliveness within people and groups.
        3. Learn how to judiciously and safely use proven action-oriented techniques to support behavior change, healing and wellness by building safety in action.
        4. Engage in activities that support healthy connections within groups of people.

            Presenter: Wendy Ashley, Psy.D., LCSW

            Description: This webinar will focus on promoting mental health, wellness, and recovery during a dual pandemic (COVID-19 and concurrent displays of civil unrest). The Coronavirus outbreak created both a global health challenge and a wave of mental health crises. The pandemic has been a stressor for physical health, mental health and well-being, with significant psychological consequences for those impacted by COVID-19, their family members, health care workers and mental health practitioners. While grappling with the weight of the health pandemic, the savagery of the violent murders of George Floyd, Ahmad Arbery, and Breonna Taylor appeared to substantively impact the world, resulting in racial tension and global protests. The incessant media coverage of the dual pandemic has activated a level of psychological and physiological distress that cannot be escaped. For Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) this level of distress is experienced as racial trauma, with significant implications for vulnerable clients and treatment providers of color. Thus, the dual pandemic experience of global exposure to the Coronavirus, ongoing systemic targeting of Black Americans by law enforcement, quarantined isolation, increased caseloads, parenting or family responsibilities, and the expectation of consistent self-care creates a considerable emotional burden for mental health providers that has the potential to negatively impact their mental health and well-being. Strategies for managing personal and professional reactions to the dual pandemic, navigating client challenges, and trauma informed self-care will be provided.

            Learning Objectives

            Following this presentation, participants shall be able to:

            1. Identify how isolation, fear of the COVID-19 virus, caregiving, telehealth, media coverage and distress impact mental health in the context of the dual pandemic
            2. Indicate the impact of racialized trauma on BIPOC
            3. Indicate increased risk factors for clients in a COVID context
            4. Indicate increased risk factors for practitioners and providers in a COVID context
            5. Develop clear recovery and wellness goals for clients and practitioners

            Cost: Member - FREE | Nonmember - $30

            As human beings, we are biologically wired for connection. For individuals in recovery from trauma and addictions, deeper contact with others holds even more significance to promote healing and sustainable sobriety. In this webinar, attendees will explore a fresh, new perspective on emotional sobriety skills to reinforce long-term healing. Developing secure attachments is not the goal; breaking down barriers that get in the way of secure attachments is the key. Addiction thrives on isolation, shame and secrecy, and to diminish the stigma, this presentation looks at longstanding recovery through the lens of Nervous System Regulation, Positive Psychology and Attachment Theory. Addictive, compulsive behaviors stem from brokenheartedness, and establishing emotionally-reliable relationships mends broken hearts while developing purpose and meaning.Andrew Susskind is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing and Brainspotting Practitioner and Certified Group Psychotherapist based in West Los Angeles since 1992 specializing in trauma and addictions. He serves as faculty for the Principles of Group Psychotherapy Course, taught residents in the UCLA School of Medicine Doctoring program and mentored associates in his private practice from 1997-2020. His recent book, It’s Not About the Sex: Moving from Isolation to Intimacy after Sexual Addiction (Central Recovery Press, June 2019) joins his workbook, From Now On: Seven Keys to Purposeful Recovery which was released in 2014.

            Learning Objectives:

            By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

            1. Describe how nervous system regulation supports sobriety.
            2. Identify three Emotional Sobriety skills.
            3. Distinguish between Early Sobriety and Emotional Sobriety.
