    The American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work in joint sponsorship with The Sanville Institute and the California Society for Clinical Social Work Presents: Program: Whither Analytic Identity When Aging Interferes?

    Presenter: Claire Allphin, MSW, PhD

    You are invited to join us for a much needed presentation on a much avoided topic. What happens to therapists when we are no longer in demand, when newer therapists become more involved in our organizations and we need to step aside and make space for them, or we are not asked to take on roles we once filled with great interest and hard work? How do we gracefully leave the stage and continue to feel we are living meaningful lives? Our work is so significant to us that it is hard for many of us to think of retiring.

    We hope this presentation will stimulate you to reflect on your thoughts and feelings as Dr. Allphin discusses her own reactions to these issues. She believes this last stage in our careers and our lives can be a lonely process, given the lack of models, due to the unique experience each of us has when facing illness and death. Our choice to continue working contains the real possibility that our patients may experience the sudden loss of us, or have to deal with our illness as we continue to work in our later years. Dr. Allphin’s thoughtful and deep reflections on these themes will offer us the opportunity to think together about how we affect our patients when we continue to practice late in life. This presentation and conversation is relevant to all ages and all stages of your career. Your personal reflections and case examples will be very welcome.

    Description: 

    Schema Therapy, developed by Dr. Jeffrey Young, is an integrative, creative, well-researched therapeutic approach for healing deep wounds and replacing entrenched behavior patterns with new and successful coping strategies.

    In the 25 years since its inception ST has evolved tremendously, and is now an evidence based therapy that is the gold standard for treating individuals with borderline personality disorder in the Netherlands. The integrative nature of the model, it’s theoretical depth and practical applicability has proven that it is conceptually robust and effective in helping a wide range of individuals.

    This presentation shares our passion for Schema Therapy through education about the conceptualization and strategies, experiential examples, role-plays, client cases and more.

    Objectives:

    1. Learn how Schema Therapy “liberates” the traumatized child ‘living” inside the adult.
    2. Actively explore 18 well - defined Schema’s, as a way to conceptualize the impact of childhood trauma, and learn how therapist’s benefit from knowing and managing their own schemas.
    3. Experience the power of Schema Therapy through experiential examples of how it’s effectively used with clients.
    4. Discover clinical strategies used to heal schemas to include: limited re-parenting, audio flashcards, mode work, schema change and the use of emotion-focused change techniques.

    *In addition, the presentation offers resources to learn how to provide Schema Therapy, ways to earn additional CEU’s while learning about the model, and information to become a Certified Schema Therapist.

    SUMMARY OF PRESENTATION: This presentation is aimed at engaging participants in raising critical consciousness, accountability, and empowerment around issues of diversity, privilege and power. It explores some of the challenges of navigating through the complexities of intersectionality with clients and its impact on clinical work. This presentation will clarify the meaning of the concepts, provide case examples, offer information about diversity, power, privilege and intersectionality and will also facilitate a dialogue on the importance of utilizing intersectionality as a tool to increase equity and improve effectiveness in practice. Participants will be provided with strategies to apply workshop content to support client empowerment, promote social justice and to embrace intersectionality in micro, mezzo and macro practice settings. This workshop is designed to assist mental health clinicians and students at all levels of experience and licensure in enhancing their abilities to increase cultural competence, humility, accountability and efficacy in their practice. The goal is to teach, inform and encourage mental health practitioners to provide appropriate clinical services to clients with varying intersectional identities. There will be ample time for discussion throughout the workshop.
