IMG_0639_edited.jpg

Emerging adults’ developmental openness to new ideas, as well as their motivation for connection and belonging, can transform into an all-encompassing worldview that impacts cognition, emotion, and behavior. Explore the psychological trajectory from ideological passion to extremist thinking and violent ideation. Risk and protective factors in personality, behavior, and environment will be reviewed.

This session will examine the psychological process through which the potential for ideologically based violence may develop, with specific focus on the developmental framework of emerging adulthood. The training will address the mental health provider’s role in assessment, consultation, and management of safety concerns both on college campuses and in private practice settings. Clinicians are often in the challenging, perplexing, and sometimes frightening position of assessing emerging adult clients’ potential for violence and advising on action plans for those suspected of violent ideation. Clinical administrators are called upon to recommend safe and ethical courses of action and to respond to personal safety concerns among those interacting with such clients – including other clinicians.

Grounded in a positive, integrative, strengths-based model of mental health and well-being, Brielle Stark-Adler, Ph.D. provides insight-oriented psychotherapy, counseling, supervision, and consultation, with special expertise in clinical work with young adults, college/graduate students, competitive athletes, and religiously observant individuals.

Brielle is a licensed psychologist in New York State and received her Ph.D. In Counseling Psychology from Fordham University. Brielle’s professional background includes years of clinical leadership, clinical supervision, and direct psychotherapy service delivery on college campuses. This equips her with special expertise in working with young adults, college and graduate students, and athletes, including athletes competing at NCAA Division I and national/international levels.

Systemic Racism And Black Girls' Vulnerability To Sexual Exploitation

Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Facilitator: Crystal Bennett, LMSW

CROPPED.jpg

Human trafficking is a crime that preys on vulnerabilities and although it occurs across age, ethnicity, race and socioeconomic status, Black girls have an increased vulnerability to sexual exploitation as a result of racism and systemic oppression. Although Black women and girls make up 13% of the US population, they represent 40% of sex trafficking victims and account for 51% of prostitution arrests. Black girls are oversexualized, dehumanized and often treated as criminals rather than being allowed to exist in environments that provide hope and healing.

We each have a shared responsibility to combat human trafficking. In order to prevent trafficking and work to create environments for survivors to thrive, we must address the root causes of trafficking.

Through the use of personal testimony, video clips, and group dialogue, Crystal Bennett, LMSW, will explore the experiences of trafficking and sexual exploitation for Black girls and explore the racial roots that contribute to the dehumanization and sexualization of Black girls. Participants will recognize how systematic oppression increases vulnerability to the push/pull factors of human trafficking and evaluate the use of trauma and survivor-informed approaches in order to avoid re-traumatization and build resilience.

Crystal is an educator, an advocate, a survivor and a self-proclaimed thriver! For the past 25 years she has been driven by her personal experiences of trauma to elevate and amplify the voices of individuals and communities in order to promote healing and opportunities to move from surviving to thriving.

Crystal has demonstrated a passion in sharing her experiences in order to help individuals heal from their personal traumas and work alongside professionals to create trauma-informed, culturally inclusive, and person-centered spaces. Her experiences include advocacy within the child welfare system, oversight of child and youth programs, crisis hotline response, delivery of community-based mental health services, and implementing trauma-informed strategies and programs for school districts.

Crystal has been called upon to provide training, coaching, and consultation across the nation in the subject areas of human trafficking, suicide prevention, motivational interviewing, child trauma and maltreatment, and racial trauma. She is a fierce advocate for social justice and leads courageously to dismantle oppressive systems and create equitable and just services, policies, and programs.

Dee Profile Pic.jpg

Sand therapy is nested in the larger context of human story-telling, including centuries of oral traditions across cultures. This experiential session introduces Narrative Sand Therapy©, exploring metaphors and symbols in sand through client-clinician-symbol collaboration.

Guiding the process is existential psychotherapy, a search for meaning emphasizing depth and presence. Through the use of metaphor, poetics, symbols and story we honor and validate client experience. We unpack social-cultural constructions; distortions of the wounded self from shame, trauma, and alienation. Participants will have an opportunity to practice symbol resonance and amplification, activate imagination and wonderment, and explore how flow and silence empower voice. The gift of existential depth is permission for spontaneity and imagination, in life and in therapy.

Dee Preston-Dillon, MA, PhD is the Founder of the Center for Culture and Sandplay and The Sand Therapy Training Institute. Dee’s cross-cultural research compared indigenous experience with implications for social justice and cultural competency when using symbols in sand. Essential to competency is a therapist’s immersion in their own sand scenes, deepening their experience of symbols and metaphors.

Over three decades of clinical consultation with therapists' sand scenes led to her development of Narrative Sand Therapy© and clinician competency scales, an Advanced Sand Therapy certificate program, and online Sand Therapy courses. Presenting at over 40 conferences on ethics, theory and practice for clinical use of symbols in sand, Dee integrates metaphor, humanistic, existential and post-modern approaches to sand scenes. Her research is grounded in neuroscience and paleontology.

Abusive Traumatic Bonding (ATB™) is a phenomenon present in many, if not all, cases of Intimate Partner Violence. It is closely related to the cycle of violence. ATB™ usually begins after the climax stage in the cycle of violence and is solidified during the second (and ongoing) honeymoon period(s). As the cycle of violence progresses, the bond becomes stronger and stronger, until it is almost impossible for the victim to leave.

 

COVID-19 has impacted Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) to a great extent. More than ever, clinicians need to be aware of the increasing need for skilled interventions to address ATB™.

Join Karen Landmann in an exploration of the implications of race, gender, culture/ethnicity, sexual orientation, level of ability, and socio-economic status in ATB™. Countertransferential responses can impact the therapeutic relationship and treatment outcomes, and providers must have a “toolbox” at hand to cope with these feelings.

Karen Landmann is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Manhattan. Educated at Columbia University, she has been in the field for 27 years. Her clientele consists primarily of persons dealing with depression, trauma, and chronic illness. They come from a great variety of ethnic and cultural origins.

The advent and widespread use of video games have been so recent in the timeline of our evolution that we are only now realizing their full negative potential. The era of quarantine and other restrictions due to COVID-19 have only augmented the heavy usage of video games in our society.

Normal biological rhythms are disrupted completely. The mechanisms of addiction and recovery will be explored in this training, and a road map given for living a life free of video game addiction.

Dee Profile Pic.jpg

Direct and immediate feedback in supervision and case consultation is essential to extend perception of the problem and explore alternative therapeutic interventions. Challenges include a shift from clinical techniques to supervision skills, discerning useful projections during supervision, and supporting competency. There are, however, three problems in a supervision session - the client’s problem, the challenge for the clinician, and supervisor limits in perception, communication and knowledge. There is a thread that connects the three, evenwhen the client never meets the supervisor; it is the weave of creativity.

Metaphors, images, and symbols amplify perspective and depth at all levels of clinical work, grounding insight and validation for the therapist, client, and the supervisor. This training will explore creative techniques for supervision, touch on scope of practice concerns for safety, and examine suggestions for repair when challenges disrupt supervision. This experiential session emphasizes presence, safety, imagination, and a meaningful process for work with interns as well as seasoned clinicians.
