A Daughter Who Needs a Mother

This session, recorded in 1991 by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and digitally remastered in 2009, features Harry Aponte conducting a live, unedited therapy session with a family. The featured family is an African American mother and her children struggling with poverty and a legacy of deprivation. The session is a demonstration of the Eco-System Model, incorporating class, racial and ethnic experiences of both the family and therapist. Mother lacks confidence and skill to parent her children, forcing her 14-year-old daughter to do so. After running away from home to pursue the attention of older men, her actions culminate in a suicide gesture. An experience is created for the mother to reach out to her daughter. Approx. Time: 87 minutes

A Roadmap for Couple Therapy

Speaker: Arthur Nielsen
CE Credit: 1.0

This course is provided by the Couples and Intimate Relationships Network; find out more and how to join at www.aamft.org/tin.

Couple therapy is a complex undertaking that proceeds best by integrating various schools of thought. Grounded in an in-depth review of the clinical and research literature, and drawing on the presenter's 40-plus years of experience, this webinar will present a comprehensive, flexible, and user-friendly roadmap for conducting couple therapy. We begin by describing "Couple Therapy 1.0," the basic conjoint couple therapy format in which partners talk to each other with the help of the therapist. After noting the limitations of this model, we take up upgrades derived from systemic, psychodynamic, and behavioral/educational approaches, and show how to combine and sequence them. The most important upgrade is the early focus on the couple's negative interaction cycle, which causes them pain and impedes their ability to address it. Using clinical case examples, the webinar will show how all three approaches can improve couple process as a prerequisite for better problem solving. Additional modules and sequencing choice points are also discussed, including discernment counseling and encouraging positive couple experiences.

AAMFT Presents: Lost in the Shadows

Images/Events/Robert C Picture.jpg

Speaker: Robert M. Cunningham jr.

Within the multitude of messages, suggestions, influences, and pressures that we face daily, it becomes increasingly difficult to identify as an “absolute” self. Fragmented ideas of identity that infiltrate our minds through what we personally observe, touch, taste, feel, and smell bound together within the context of the relationship of what our family members/friends/acquaintances personally observe, touch, taste, feel, and smell often times leaves us, philosophically, “Lost in the Shadows”. Whenever a group of people gather together under the radiance of the sun they cast a shadow, but the ability to distinguish one individual from the other is diminished greatly until they begin to divide.

How does this division occur? Should it occur? What’s the danger of dividing too early? What’s the danger of dividing too late? What happens if this division never occurs?

Learning Objectives:

Engage in an experiential activity to understand what it means to be Lost in the Shadows.

Discuss the reasons why we enter into and/or withdraw from particular "shadow groups" that impact our personal identity, reputation, and behavior.

Encourage participants to begin to search for the hidden treasures of history.

Continuing Education: 1 CE hour will be earned upon completion of the event.

Addressing Marginalization and Oppression in Therapy

Speaker: Una Henry

As conversations around race become more and more charged, it is important to learn how to engage white men in conversations around marginalization and oppression. However, in light of the prevalence of white fragility, it can be difficult to get white male clients to be willing to engage in this conversation. This workshop will break down how to get white male clients to soften and be vulnerable enough to engage in difficult conversations around marginalization and oppression.

Addressing Partner Violence: A Biopsychosocial Approach

Speaker(s): Jonathan Wilson, Damon Rappleyea, Andrew Brimhall, Jennifer Hodgson Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a pervasive public health problem with serious health consequences. Previous efforts to address IPV have often neglected members of at-risk populations (e.g., LGBT, racial/ethnic minority groups). Many clinicians opt not to screen for IPV. The purpose of this institute is to equip MFTs to identify clients experiencing IPV and to respond through a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens. No Handouts provided.

Addressing Suicide among LGBTQ+ Youth

CE credits: 1 Speaker: Judy Russon

Suicide is a growing public health issue among adolescents and young adults. Due to discrimination, stigma, and experiences of rejection, LGBTQ+ youth are disproportionately affected by suicide. While the majority of LGBTQ+ youth are healthy, resilient and have strong support systems, many experience significant distress without support. The purpose of this webinar is to provide family therapists with an introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to approach this clinical population with a balance of sensitivity, humility, and self-assuredness. First, two theories will be presented to explain the disproportionate rates of suicide among LGBTQ+ youth. Next, a brief review of prominent risk and protective factors will be described. Finally, treatment approaches, designed or adapted for LGBTQ+ youth, will be discussed and illustrated with case examples. Special attention will be paid to systemic models targeting suicidality.

Adolescent and Family Therapy: Evidence Based Treatment

CE Credits: 4.50 Speaker(s): Howard A. Liddle, EdD Therapists often view evidence-based therapies with skepticism or trepidation. Some consider these approaches as irrelevant to real world clinical work. Addressing these issues head-on and in a practical way, this presentation describes a modular approach to understanding and using an evidence-based treatment. Using a new training video, the presentation illustrates the four core modules of multidimensional family therapy (MDFT), an evidence-based approach for adolescents. We cover the needed knowledge base, change theory, clinical methods, and desirable during-treatment processes within the adolescent, parent, family, and extrafamilial modules of MDFT.
