Cambodia's 1st Creative Arts Therapy & Wellbeing Conference - January 16-18, 2018
CFHS Canadian Link Conference, December 4-6 in Ottawa!

What is the CFHS Canadian Link Conference?

#LINK2017 is an innovative new conference that will examine the link between violence against people and animals, looking at the vulnerabilities in both populations and how they connect. If you aren’t familiar with the violence link, it’s the proven link between violence against animals and people. This can manifest in many ways, including a pet being harmed or killed after a woman leaves an abusive relationship or a serial killer practicing abuse on animals before moving on to human beings. Over the last decade, this pattern has come to be known as the violence link.

This event will bring together key Canadian sectors that work to prevent and address violence against people or animals for cross-sector training on how to stop the cycles of abuse. This is the first national conference of its kind in Canada, and it promises to kick-start much-needed action on violence.

Join us for the CFHS Canadian Link Conference, December 4-6 in Ottawa! Learn more here: http://clc.cfhs.ca/

What will I learn?

  • Skills to examine the correlation between human vulnerability and animal vulnerability
  • The opportunity to create new networks and relationships that will enhance your work toward ending violence
  • The opportunity to found a national coalition to work on the violence link via cross-sectoral collaboration
  • An understanding of the roots of animal abuse and its connection to interpersonal and societal violence
  • An ability to identify the indicators of animal abuse and the steps to investigation and prosecution of these crimes
  • An ability to identify the indicators of interpersonal violence and the steps to responding
  • The opportunity to explore community-level partnerships involving social service providers, prosecutors, animal welfare organizations, the courts and law enforcement agencies, veterinarians and municipal/provincial/federal governments

Who is the conference for?

This conference is for social workers, mental health workers, animal cruelty enforcement personnel, veterinarians, police officers, first responders, animal welfare advocates, policy experts, anti-violence advocates, judges, politicians, bureaucrats and Crown prosecutors. More than 200 professionals from across Canada will attend to focus on how our sectors can work together to improve Canada’s response to violence. When we pool together this expertise, it’s sure to lead to powerful insights and more effective strategies to prevent and address violence against people and animals.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens: Interventions and Strategies for Adolescents and Parents with Gina M. Biegel

November 2, 2017 in OTTAWA

November 3, 2017 in MONTREAL

GENERAL DESCRIPTION. Teenage stress is a growing problem. The Canadian Mental Health Association estimates that up to 20% of Canadian youth are affected by mental illness and that 3.2 million teens are at risk for developing depression. Canada’s youth suicide rate is the third highest in the industrial world. Gina Biegel created the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens Program (MBSR-T) in order to provide a youth-focused approach. According to Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., “Gina Biegel has put together an intensive training for professionals interested in helping stressed adolescents find relief and clarity based on her direct experience supporting teens during this challenging time of life.”  Mindfulness-based interventions for youth have been found to be evidence-based in clinical and non-clinical practice. Mindfulness can help your clients reduce stress and manage anxiety by teaching them how to rely less on old behaviours such as ruminative thinking and self-sabotaging narratives and actions. But how do you get youth to be mindful when they are developmentally wired to be judgmental, distractible and susceptible to peer pressure? You will learn proven interventions, strategies, treatment tools, and techniques that are culturally relevant and appropriate to the developmental needs of adolescents.

BIO. Gina M. Biegel, LMFT, is a San Francisco Bay Area based psychotherapist, researcher and author specializing in mindfulness-based work with adolescents. She is the founder of Stressed Teens, which has offered the MBSR-T to adolescents, families, schools, professionals and the community for over 13 years. MBSR-T has been recognized by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the creator of the adult Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program. Gina provides intensive 10-week online training to people all over the world and works with adolescents and families individually and in groups (http://www.stressedteens.com).  An expert in mindfulness-based approaches to youth, Gina is the author of Be Mindful & Stress Less: 50 Ways to Deal with Your (Crazy) Life, The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens (1st and 2nd second edition). Her work has been featured on CNN and Reuters and in the New York Times.

Building Resilience and Enhancing Psychotherapy Outcomes with Dr. John Preston

Feb, 8, 2018 in OTTAWA

Feb. 9, 2018 in MONTREAL

GENERAL DESCRIPTION. As people navigate challenging times, some fare better than others.  Drawing on the explosion of recent neuroscience research that bears on this issue, this workshop will take a look at why some clients are more resilient than others and how this research can be used to enhance psychotherapy outcomes. The workshop will look at how neuroscience has developed intersections between cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches, and will offer treatment strategies for dealing with resistances, rapid stress reduction, and fostering the development of a more authentic self.  In addition, several Eastern healing traditions will be examined to understand how they can complement more traditional therapeutic work. The day is based in well-developed theory and research but is highly applied, offering strategies to help clients develop resilience in facing inevitable life challenges.

BIO. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND WITH A NEW WORKSHOP! Dr. Preston has taught psychology graduate students and medical residents for 37 years and has presented more than 600 continuing education workshops. He is the author or co-author of 22 books and was honored with the Mental Health Association’s President’s award for contributions to the mental health community.  The core of Dr. Preston’s his writing (e.g. Integrative Brief Therapy; Integrative Treatments for Borderline Personality Disorder) and workshops is integrative approaches to psychological treatment: the interface between psychotherapy and neuroscience, Eastern healing practices, and psychopharmacology.  Beyond symptomatic improvement he understands the importance of helping clients develop greater psychological resiliency and facilitating the emergence of a truer self. Those who heard him speak last year on psychopharmacology will remember the depth and broad range of his knowledge and the wonderful sense of humor that he brings to his subject.

Personality Structure and its implications for Psychotherapy with

dR. Nancy McWilliams

March 1, 2018 in OTTAWA

March 2, 2018 in MONTREAL

GENERAL DESCRIPTION. Many of us chose a vocation in psychotherapy because we were fascinated with individual differences. Research findings support this focus: personality and relationship variables  consistently show a greater  influence on outcome than type of treatment.  This workshop will conceptualize personality differences as they are presented in the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, second edition (2017).

Dr. McWilliams will describe personality dimensionally, contextually, and inferentially, with attention to subjective experience, repetitive themes, defensive patterns, central conflicts, self-esteem maintenance, and relational patterns rather than observable “traits.”  Throughout the day, the focus will be on the practical value of understanding clients’ personalities in depth, whether or not the personality is “disordered”.   This focus facilitates adaptation to clients’ individual styles of learning and changing as they address the problems that constitute the central focus of treatment.

Although some background in basic psychoanalytic ideas will be helpful, neither an in-depth familiarity with psychoanalysis nor a commitment to psychodynamic approaches is necessary to benefit from the day. The workshop is oriented toward an inclusive, diverse population of therapists of all theoretical orientations who struggle with short or long-term issues rooted in personality in a range of settings.  Emphasis will be on the practical applications of the concepts.

BIO. Dr. Nancy McWilliams teaches at Rutgers University, Graduate School of Applied & Professional Psychology and practices in Flemington, New Jersey. She is author of Psychoanalytic Diagnosis (1994, rev. ed. 2011)Psychoanalytic Case Formulation (1999), Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (2004), and an upcoming book on overall wellness. Her books are available in 20 language.  Dr. McWilliams lectures widely both nationally and internationally. She is associate editor of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, 2nd ed. (2017), a former president of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the APA, and an Honorary Member of the American Psychoanalytic Association. She has been featured in three APA videos of master clinicians, the most recent being “Three Approaches to Psychotherapy.”

To Err is Human: Therapists Mistakes and Therapeutic Opportunities - November 13th, 2017

To Err is Human: Therapists Mistakes and Therapeutic Opportunities
Presented by: Dr. Janina Fisher
Date: Monday November 13th, 2017
Location: The Highland County Club, LONDON, ON

Like parenting, psychotherapy can be only “good enough.”  Therapeutic mistakes are inevitable, yet our work lives don’t allow us many opportunities to acknowledge and grow from them.  Our mistakes occur in the privacy of an office with no one there but the client with whom we could process them.   The thought of sharing them with colleagues often increases shame, not curiosity.   We may pause to critique ourselves but rarely have the chance to ask: How did that happen?

This workshop examines the underlying issues that most often contribute to therapist error and explores how what drives us to do this work can also lead to “mistakes of the heart.”   Whether the mistakes we make are more clinically mis-attuned, ethically incorrect, or the result of our own internal conflicts, there is much to learn both about our own vulnerability and what it can teach us about preventing future mistakes and repairing past errors.

Integrating psychodynamic and somatic conceptualizations of countertransference with an understanding of internal conflicts occurring simultaneously in client and therapist, this workshop will look at complex therapeutic relationships through a different lens.  Sometimes therapeutic mistakes end the treatment or cause havoc from which neither client nor therapist can recover fully.   Sometimes, though, our honesty and vulnerability can provide an opportunity for growth—for therapist, client, and their relationship.
