Take a break and join AAMFT in Boston, Massachusetts as we gather together to earn continuing education, network and study under an expert in the field of systemic family therapy. The Institutes are designed with the experienced clinician in mind and are presented by experts in the field. Participants study in one of four intensive courses that reflect the clinical challenges mental health professionals face today. Classes are intentionally kept small to create a personal and interactive setting. In addition, our opening and closing keynotes offer a wonderful opportunity to meet with the instructors and your fellow participants to exchange ideas and discuss today’s issues at length. Daily breakfast and lunch gatherings offer an excellent opportunity for networking with participants from across the globe.  We will also be hosting a Supervision Refresher for those that need to fulfill the required course for all approved Supervisors. The institutes are approved to provide 12 hours of continuing education with an additional 6 for those registering for the Supervision Refresher Course.

Part One:

This presentation will walk participants through the stages of Alzheimer’s disease, describing changes in the person experiencing the disease; changes and needs of family members living with the person; and interventions and resources needed by the family during each stage. A brief overview of the disease process and interventions that may slow the progress of the disease will also be given. Suggestions for life style changes to prevent Alzheimer’s disease will be summarized. 1 hour of continuing education is available.

Learning Objectives:  

1. Understand the Alzheimer’s Disease process and its effect on individuals .

2. Understand the stages of Alzheimer’s Disease and how to help families cope with each stage.

3. Understand how to minimize the chances of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.

Part Two:

The percentage of Americans aged 65 and older is estimated to increase to over one in five within the next ten years. However, under the current regulations, these Americans are denied Medicare insurance coverage for over 40% of the therapy providers in the country. In a recent study conducted by AAMFT, over 85% of Americans aged 65 and older surveyed indicated that inclusion of LMFTs and LMHCs as Medicare providers would help seniors.

Join AAMFT for this special bonus interactive advocacy session where we highlight other findings from the study and together, we take action urging our members of Congress to ask for their support in LMFT inclusion in Medicare. .5 hours of continuing education is available.

Learning Objectives:

In this session, participants will:

1. Learn more about the outcomes of a recent study of older Americans and their attitudes, needs, and encountered barriers to mental health treatment.

2. Find out the most self-identified clinical issues facing older Americans today.

3. Learn more about potential inclusion of MFTs in Medicare.

4. Understand policy advocacy for the MFT profession.

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.

At home Series: Historical Trauma Theory

CE: 1.00
Speakers: Do Hee Kim and Jonathan Appel

Interpersonal and intergenerational neurobiology can illuminate the development of emotional health within a social and cultural context. In recent years, Historical Trauma Theory has proposed that populations historically subjected to long-term, mass trauma—(such as slavery, war, genocide, and other forms of social oppression) exhibit a higher prevalence of health issues even across several generations removed from the original trauma(s). Understanding how historical trauma might influence the current mental health status of racial/ethnic populations may provide new directions and insights for understanding, treating and preventing mental health issues. This presentation will examine the model of Historical Trauma Theory and the research support to date. This framework will be applied to Family Therapy practice as well as research implications.
