Although psychiatrists and other mental health clinicians interested in sports practice already have the necessary general skills to help competitive athletes deal with adversity and the multitude of emotions that sports can elicit, most typically they lack the sports-specific knowledge necessary to truly help these patients and clients. This seminar will provide mental health providers interested in sports practice with the necessary tools to improve life balance and achieve peak performance in athletes and other high achievers.  Using the expanding evidence-base from neuroscience and sports medicine and case studies from all competitive levels, eight core competencies as well as important dimensions of sports culture, team structure and function, and the shifting intensity and pressure of competition will be covered.

We are a part of a massive social experiment. Sex, gender, and relationship dynamics are changing faster than at any time in recorded history, all within a backdrop of exploding artificial intelligence (AI). Younger generations are increasingly comfortable with technology interfacing all aspects of their lives. The potential risks inherent in human:human sex have been highlighted by COVID-19.  Enter virtual reality porn and yes, sex robots. Experts predict that within 20-50 years, robots that move and interact in humanoid ways will be affordable for many. It is highly conceivable that an infant born today can have their first sexual experience with a robot. Mental health professionals will better serve their clients if they understand the increasingly powerful impact new developments in sex tech and AI have on sex and intimacy. The time is now for us to being this critical discussion.

“The instructor was clearly knowledgeable and well-organized. I liked that she disclosed some of her weaker content/expertise (e.g. not good with metaphors). This was good modeling of the concepts she was teaching. I loved the developmental cube. I will look more into this model and will likely implement it.”-Phillip L., Licensed Professional Counselor, Texas

In this seminar, Dr. Saffer examines the purpose of clinical supervision, including the components and processes that are important for effective supervision. Participants are encouraged to consider different models and methods as they develop an approach to clinical supervision.  In addition,strategies are discussed regarding effectively dealing with some of the challenges that are inherent in the supervisory process.  This seminar is designed to provide participants with a thoughtful approach to the supervision process and to encourage the development of competence in this area of training.

All mental health professions have their own code of ethics; for the most part, they are very similar, but  there are some important differences which impact in different ways on practitioners; these are sometimes difficult to reconcile with one another, and with various state licensing board regulations.  This webinar will present  an in depth look at the major areas covered by all codes, such as competence, multiple relations, advertising, avoidance of harm, assessment, therapy, and involvement in forensic activities.  It will look at major areas that need to be carefully considered and thought through, such as what constitutes a multiple relationship, what are limits on advertising, what kinds of testing should be used and what kinds should be avoided, and what kinds of relationships outside the therapy session are allowed and which are prohibited.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people with anxiety disorders will be felt for a long time to come. Rates of new-onset anxiety rose dramatically, and factors such as long-covid introduced aspects to anxiety such as ‘brain fog’ and new-onset panic and anxiety. Additionally, 24/7 negative news and the lurking threat of new variants have created ‘ambient anxiety’ that fuels the vigilance and persistent worry that are hallmarks of anxiety disorders. The spread of confusing information on social media particularly affects adolescents’ experience of anxiety and therapists can be watchful for ‘contagious panic and anxiety’. For a time, isolation felt like safety, but now, as people, emerge from restrictions, ‘cave syndrome’ affects all ages, causing especially those with social anxiety to struggle with the new ‘re-entry anxiety’. In this session, Dr. Wehrenberg will focus on practical strategies that will help any client with anxiety to suffer less panic, to increase stress resilience, and to block worry (especially health anxiety). Join us and get new ideas to manage anxiety in a world where pandemics are real.
