The Complexities of Psycho-therapeutic Relationships: Ethics, Reflection and Self Care

The Complexities of Psycho-therapeutic Relationships: Ethics, Reflection and Self Care

Creating and maintaining therapeutic relationships is a complex task. In this continuing education program Jeffrey L. Sternlieb, Ph.D. asks therapists to consider how to reflect productively on their values, habits, personal strengths and weaknesses, and their decision-making processes to reach decisions most congruent with their deeply held values. In order to accomplish this goal, the training will present information about self-care, reflective practices and ethical standards.

From Facebook to Spyware: Domestic Violence in the Digital Age

From Facebook to Spyware: Domestic Violence in the Digital Age

Do the survivors you work with know how easy it is for abusive partners to track their every move, to monitor everything they do on a computer, in their cars, or on their phones? Corbin Streett, MSW and Digital Technology Specialist with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, presents how to ensure that survivors are able to stay technologically connected, while helping minimize the related safety risks they face when in an abusive relationship. 

This workshop was planned in conjunction with the The Women's Resource Center. The Women's Resource Center and the Barbara J. Hart Center are committed to using their resources in partnership with others to effect positive change for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Our hope is that this program will increase the resources available to victims by enhancing the knowledge of attending providers.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) - Bio-Psycho-Social Lifespan, Resilience, and Ethics

This workshop will take a look back on the last 20 years following the Adverse Childhood Experiences “ACEs” study focusing on how our increased knowledge of ACEs can be translated into community action to cultivate resiliency in our population. In order to understand and counteract the impact of ACEs multiple community aspects and ethical concerns must be taken into consideration. This program will identify and describe adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), discuss their treatment, and identify what community actions are underway to counteract the impact of ACEs. Additionally, the ethical considerations surrounding ACEs will be discussed.
