Over 2000 children are reported missing each day. An estimated 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys will be sexually victimized before they reach age 18.

This workshop provides participants with 1) an overview of the programs of the National Center for Missing and Exploited children to enable a better understanding of issues affecting missing and exploited children and their families; 2) an introduction to the unique problems of the missing child and the searching parent; 3) information about a peer support model focusing on the searching families; 4) tools to respond to a missing and/or exploited case in their community; and 5) information on technology trends and treatment models for issues such as the sexual minority population, CSEC, domestic sex trafficking, endangered runaways, parental abduction, and modality of treatment for families of missing children and recovered children.

Organizational Leadership: The Whole Story

Effective leadership is both an art and a science that incorporates technical skills with personal attributes.  Many clinicians who hold administrative positions within their organizations find themselves unprepared for the role. This training focuses on techniques to leverage clinical skills into effective leadership strategies within professional organizationsThe workshop demonstrates how these leadership elements are essential, can be taught, and can be learned. The seven attributes of leadership are grounded in an appreciation of multiculturalism, and acknowledgement and honor are given to the difference and similarities of various cultures, ethnicities, lifestyles, and perspectives.  Upon completion of this course, participants are able to: (1) define the twelve critical skills of leadership and the seven attributes of leading from “the inside out”; (2) identify their own leadership competencies and areas for growth; (3) develop and use personal attributes to help inform decisions and processes; and (4) incorporate their learning into their workplace. There is a time for individual reflection and small group work, as well as formal didactic material. This course is appropriate for all levels of post-master’s degree practitioners.

B1013
Using Psychoanalytic Object Relations Theory and Tools to Enhance Clinical Work
9am-3:30pm
6 CEUs
$125
(see Registration Information for discount information)
Psychoanalytic object relations theory offers many tools to help clinicians better understand their clients and intervene more effectively.  This workshop explores how a psychoanalytically oriented therapist structures a session and listens to the material. The use of transference and counter-transference as a lens to understand clients’ relationship patterns and feelings about themselves is examined.  Consideration is given to how the therapist’s seemingly random reveries during sessions may provide insight into what the client is experiencing, and the importance of focusing on the client’s emotions rather than providing reassurance or advice.  Concepts from leading analysts who have contributed to object relations theory are explored. Upon completion of this course, participants will be familiar with (1) effective intervention tactics using psychoanalytic theory to assist their understanding of clients; (2) ways to structure a session and strengthen effective listening skills; (3) use of transference and counter-transference; and (4) key concepts from object relations theorists. Issues of diversity are addressed through case examples of clients of different ages, ethnicity, race, gender, and income level.  Clinical case data and videotaped sessions are incorporated. Participants are encouraged to present cases from their own practices, while maintaining the confidentiality of their clients. This seminar is appropriate for all levels of post-master’s degreed practitioners.
Neal Beatus, MSS, LCSW, is in private practice with GKSW/Crystal Group Associates.  He has been a social worker for over 20 years, has studied object relations theory extensively, and has conducted many psychotherapy trainings.
