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 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.
