Upcoming Seminars

Addressing Grief and Mourning: Taking a Closer Look at a Companioning Model

What comes up for you when you are counseling someone with grief and loss issues? How do you sit with your clients in times of deep sadness or relief? Do you allow each client space to feel or is it tempting to talk away his or her pain? Do you consider yourself a teacher or a student when in a therapeutic relationship with a client?

Join Debbie and Lisa as we look at the needs of our clients and also tap into our own personal losses to better understand helpful responses to those that are grieving. Lisa and Debbie will facilitate conversations around better understanding the difference between grief and mourning. You will be better able to assess differences between normal grief and complicated grief reactions and ways to address each. And together we will share some therapeutic tools that may aid in processing a grief response.

October 12th, 2019
With Lisa Wagner-Daegling & Debbie Early, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist

How to Treat Desire Problems for Couples

Most couples struggle with desire issues at some point in their relationship. This comes as a shock for many people because they assume their sex life should be natural and easy-especially when they have great chemistry to start. The reality is that long term relationships take work and a good sex life takes effort. As clinicians, clients need guidance in this area so they can stay happy and healthy. Clients want to discuss their sex lives openly with clinicians so they can improve this area of their lives. Contrary to popular belief, improving the relationship will not necessarily improve a couple’s sex life. In this seminar, Skurtu will offer tangible skills and interventions for clinicians that can be used the very next day in sessions. Skurtu combines humor, raw honesty, and playful stories to teach sexual education concepts that can help clients. The training will be sex positive, body positive, and LGBTQIA+ inclusive.

November 9th
With Angela Skurtu, M.Ed., LMFT AASECT Certified Sex Therapist 

The Gender Connection: Working Effectively with Clients who Identify as Transgender, Gender Expansive, Non-Binary, Genderqueer, Questioning, and Gender Fluid

Do you have the skills and confidence to help your clients navigate social, medical and/or surgical transitions? How comfortable are you with they/them/ve/ver/ze/zem pronouns? Learn the basics of helping your clients explore gender, understand their gender identity, manage dysphoria and take next steps. 

December 14th
With Molly Hartigan, MA, LPC
