    Jennifer Gerlach, MSW, LCSW, presents:

    "Reasons to Live: Helping Clients Struggling with Suicidal Thoughts"

    In this presentation we will focus on a number of topics related to understanding and responding to the challenge of suicidal thoughts and actions. This will include some basic theory of what leads individuals to consider suicide, reasons for living, general assessment of risk to suicide, crisis intervention, and more long-term interventions (once immediate crisis has been settled) toward helping individuals secure a reason to live/commitment to life and assistance to deal with common scenarios that lead to those kind of thoughts. This workshop will draw from theory related to best practice for suicide intervention as well as ideas consistent with DBT, solution focused and existentially-based interventions.

    Courtney Baker, PhD, will present on Trauma in Relationships.  This presentation will cover the way past trauma and attachment injuries can impact current partnerships. We will examine the specific ways PTSD symptoms and attachment traumas affect the partners, both individually and as unit. Using an Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) perspective we will discuss ways to work with couples on building secure bonds.  Power pointe, some video clips, and clinical discussions will be used. Specific objectives include getting a deeper understanding of the way trauma affects attachment security, understand more about the interrelationship between sense of self and attachment, and find new ways to clinically intervene in these cases.
