Description of the event:
AOP is a therapeutic approach that therapists and other clinical practitioners can use with clients to support an empowerment centred change process needed to deal with the effects of oppression, trauma, and intersectional violence in clients’ lives. Exploring intersectional factors such as race/indigeneity, class, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation/ identity, age, (dis)ability, spiritualities are critical for AOP praxis.
AOP is both, the incorporation of anti-oppression theories and practices and psychotherapy to understand and work with individuals and/or groups under internal and external distress. The actualization of resistance and resiliency for clients and therapists through an integrated psychological change process is vital to AOP.

Oct. 28 – GRIEF AND BEREAVEMENT: GIVING VOICE TO LOSS AND ALLOWING THE CONVERSATION BEGIN

Presented by Caitlin Sigg, MA, PhD Candidate, RP

Caitlin is a Registered Psychotherapist and PhD Candidate. She also holds a Master of Arts in Counselling and Spirituality, as well as a bachelor’s degree in Theology and Ethics. Caitlin has worked in counselling and psychotherapy with a variety of clients for different presenting concerns over the past several years. Presently, she is a Part-Time Professor and an Addiction and Relapse Prevention Counsellor in Ottawa. Previously, Caitlin was a Chaplain and Spiritual Care Associate in Brockville, as well as an Immediate Support Counsellor in Ottawa.

The goal and anticipated outcome of this presentation is to assist participants in understanding how grief in response to loss is a universal experience, yet individuals experience the grieving process in their own unique ways. This presentation also highlights how there are various types of loss that can cause people to grieve and they are not simply limited to death. Grief can lead to both physical and emotional symptoms, as well as spiritual insights and confusion. While grief is a natural and inevitable part of life, it is also one of the most neglected and misunderstood experiences by the bereaved, family and friends alike.

This presentation seeks to assist participants in addressing the following objectives: understanding the different types of grief and loss; recognizing factors and symptoms related to grief and loss; exploring ways to ‘embrace grief’ and the potential benefits of ‘giving voice to loss’; learning more about tools for support and healing both clinically and personally. This presentation will also provide participants an opportunity to distinguish professional disparities and practical resources to increase competence.


Dec. 9 – EMOTIONAL INTEGRITY

Presented by Rick Goodwin, MSW, RSW

Rick Goodwin is the founder and Clinical Services Director of Men & Healing: Psychotherapy for Men in Ottawa. For nearly 20 years, he was the Executive Director of The Men’s Project, which he co-founded. Rick received his Master’s of Social Work in 1985. Since then, he has trained clinically in a variety of models, focusing primarily on engagement in trauma recovery, ending men’s violence, and human sexuality. Rick has won a variety of awards for service excellence over his career and was named a CAMH National Recipient in 2017.

The notion of emotional integrity is both a core value in the psychotherapy field, as well as a core outcome. However, there are a variety of roadblocks to emotional integrity, apart from fundamental aspects of masculinity that may block true interpersonal connection. Past trauma, emotional dysregulation, affective numbing, and habitual over-expression of anger and rage can all play a part. Whether the modality is group or individual services, this core need of wanting to “be heard’ is vital for all clients (not just males). Based on 20 years of providing the Emotional Integrity group program at Men & Healing, this workshop provides clinicians with a roadmap with respect to the psycho-social needs of their clients.


Jan. 13 – CLIENTS WITH NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES: ETHICAL ISSUES, ADAPTATIONS, AND EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE

Presented by Stephanie Yamin, PhD, C.Psych. and Cynthia Bilodeau, PhD, RP,

Dr. Stephanie Yamin is a licensed clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. She is currently a professor at the School and Counselling, Psychotherapy and Spirituality at Saint-Paul University and a private practitioner. She works with adults, older adults, and organizations using an integrative approach favoured by cognitive behavioural therapy and emotion-focused therapy.

Cynthia Bilodeau is a professor at the School and Counselling, Psychotherapy and Spirituality at Saint-Paul University. She is a registered psychotherapist who specializes working with adults, older adults and organizations using an integrative approach favoured by interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and humanistic approaches.

This presentation will focus on working with individuals who have a diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease, mainly older adults (e.g., dementia and Parkinson’s disease). Ethical issues including how to obtain consent will be discussed. We will focus on how to adapt the therapeutic process to best serve these clients. Evidence-based approaches will be presented. Issues pertaining to caregiving will also be reviewed.


Feb. 10 – UNDERSTANDING PSYCHEDELIC THERAPIES

Presented by Dr. Monnica Williams, PHD, ABPP

Dr. Monnica Williams is a board-certified, licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the School of Psychologist at the University of Ottawa, Canada Research Chair in Mental Health Disparities, and Director of the Laboratory for Culture and Mental Health Disparities.

Past and recent research suggests that psychedelic drugs can be effective for many mental health conditions when utilized in conjunction with psychotherapy. For example, MDMA-assisted psychotherapy has been studied as a means of helping people overcome post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), believed to work by reducing fear of traumatic memories and increasing feelings of trust and compassion towards others, without inhibiting access to difficult emotions. However, research studies of psychedelic psychotherapies have largely excluded people of color, leaving important questions unaddressed for these populations. Dr. Williams will discuss the ethnic minority trauma experience, including racial trauma, and how psychedelic therapies may help or hinder healing for people of color. Also discussed are next steps in ensuring that access to culturally-informed care is prioritized as MDMA and other psychedelics move into late phase trials and expanded access, including the importance of culturally-informed approaches and training focused on therapy providers of color.


Mar. 24 – MENTAL ILLNESS: DISEASE OR DEMONIC?

Presented by Mercy (Vicki-Anne) RODRIGUE, M.Ed., CCC, and Destiny Johnson

Mercy is a Canadian Certified Counsellor and holds a certificate in Mediation and a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology (formerly Educational Counselling).

Apr. 14 – A TRAUMA INFORMED UNDERSTANDING OF SUBSTANCE USE AND ADDICTION

Presented by Amanda Neilson CYW, BSW, RSW

Amanda Neilson is a Harm Reduction Consultant and addiction counsellor currently working at Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services. In partnership with Rideauwood and Algonquin College, Amanda was the subject matter expert, developing and implementing a harm reduction framework for post-secondary institutions. Amanda also teaches part-time at Algonquin College in the Social Service Worker program. She is currently completing her Master of Social Work degree through the University of Victoria.

This engaging and informative workshop focuses on developing participants’ understanding of problematic substance use and addiction through a trauma informed lens.  By including the impact of trauma in the current biopsychosocial model, participants will be able to broaden their intervention strategies and utilize a compassionate framework. Drawing from the works of Dr. Gabor Mate, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, as well as my 20 years of experience within the addiction field, this workshop invites participants to share and grow their knowledge to more effectively support clients with substance use issues. A full day workshop would include exploring trauma informed interventions.

Embedding Sleep: A Targeted and Pragmatic Program for Hypnotherapists to help their Clients Sleep

Hypnosis is often used to treat sleep problems, but most published scripts are targeted towards simple insomnia – difficulty falling asleep in the absence of significant sleep or co-morbid mental health challenges. Most of our clients are much more complex, but few doctors or therapists have more than superficial knowledge of sleep and little or no training in the treatment of sleep disorders.

Embedding Sleep is a 7 week, online course that offers an introduction to sleep disorders (both primary and secondary to other mental health challenges), research about the effectiveness of hypnotic strategies for treatment, tools for evaluating sleep, and scripts to address specific sleep problems. In addition, you will learn practical, psychoeducational, and hypnotic strategies to treat complex sleep problems.

Cost: $397 + applicable tax
