    Angela Skurtu presents Advanced Couples Counseling Techniques

    This presentation will cover more advanced couples therapy techniques including some sex therapy information. Some common challenges couples face include problems with unhealthy conflict, infidelity, and sexual health issues. This training is welcome to beginners but will be more focused on clinicians who have been in practice for a while longer and would like to do a deep dive into couples therapy treatment. Some portion of the training will also discuss how compassion fatigue has affected many clinicians during the pandemic and impacted our work.

    Objectives:
    1) Clinicians will review and apply systemic concepts that are relevant to our couples work.
    2) Clinicians will be given challenging case examples to discuss and explore in both small groups and the greater lecture.
    3) Clinicians will be encouraged to explore how the pandemic has impacted their work and personal lives. We will discuss Counter-transference, compassion fatigue, and how the pandemic has shaped the way we offer couples counseling.

    Nicki McClusky, M.A., LCSW, will present on transformational presence tools and skills clinical social workers don’t want to be without.

    This workshop is designed to empower clinicians to deepen their competencies with their clients. Certain tools from the world of coaching are brilliant to use with therapy clients, improving, presence, listening, deepening awareness, inner conversation, resolving inner conflict, taking action, improving communication, and trust.

    Objectives:

    Transformational Presence is an innovative approach to working with individuals in that it's focus is on energy and transformation, watching for the potential that wants to emerge. Since everything is energy in motion, we work with the tools and the client's energy so s/he can resolve conflicts, get unstuck, and confidently move forward in uplifting and dynamic ways.

    After describing the essence of TPLC in the workshop, I'll introduce four TPLC tools; participants will pair off in twos/threes to practice each tool after it’s presented.
