Substance Abuse, Sexuality, and Suicide:
The Three Canaries in the Cage

Educational: Offered through the Knowledge Network: Earn 2 CE

The longevity statistics of Americans have declined by almost ten years. We now live on the average of 69 versus78. Other, wealthy, developed countries continue in an upward trajectory in how long they live far exceeding US citizens. Three issues including Substance Abuse, Sexuality, and Suicide may provide important insights into our nation’s number one public health problem: a culture of addiction. Dr. Carnes walks us through the newly emerging understandings on the etiology of addictions and the epigenetic impact of trauma and toxic stress. Dynamic changes of culture become significant catalysts as well. Mental Health professionals need to sift through the research to understand the crisis we are in and what is required of us “on the front lines” of this war.

Grief in the Age of COVID-19:
Compassion Fatigue? Zoomed Out?

Inspirational: Offered through Heart and Soul. (No CE Credit)

Caregivers are scrambling to meet the needs of a continually changing and invisible threat. Even though we are trained to manage the unmanageable, the coronavirus crisis presents unique challenges, and compassion fatigue is becoming more real. For starters, we’re all in this together — therapists and clients alike are scared and disoriented. 

Comments from therapists such as “one-to-one is going fine but group … I have Zoom fatigue” or “I like working at home, but I miss my life” and “I’m just not getting the human energy back that I’m used to in sessions.” Then there are shared comments like “the disenfranchised grief issues that are getting triggered in my clients are getting triggered in me, too.” Not only are we learning to refine our techniques on a day-to-day basis to meet our clients’ needs, but we’re also feeling pressure to stave off what could or is becoming a mental health crisis. It’s tiring!

During this webinar, we’ll combine a little reflection on where we are now; we’ll learn several experiential exercises to use in individual and group sessions that help to focus on the specific issues that are getting triggered by them COVID-19. And we’ll use them to do a little self-care as well. Join Dr. Tian Dayton, Senior Fellow at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare, for an experience that will be both personally refreshing and professionally informative.
