At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive. Kevin has also been one of the key catalysts in helping end a nearly 80-year long fight to construct suicide prevention net on the iconic San Francisco bridge.

Counseling Clients of Faith

(especially for non-faith based clinicians)

When working with clients from a strengths-based perspective, faith can be a huge strength. Do you regularly ask clients about their faith? Are you hesitant to discuss faith with clients? Do you feel uncomfortable discussing faith with clients who are of a different faith than yourself or afraid you might put off a “religious” client? How does your faith (or non-faith) effect your view of religious clients? What level of self-disclosure regarding faith are you comfortable with? We will explore these questions, and discuss techniques to address faith in session, when to refer, and how to collaborate with spiritual/religious advisors.

Counseling Adolescents

Adolescents struggle with a variety of issues such as identity struggles, negative self-talk, extreme peer pressure, and difficulties fitting in. They often feel stuck between wanting independence and still needing guidance. Adolescents are more likely than adults to make decisions without considering the consequences and commonly feel invincible. To reach these clients, counselors must understand the developmental challenges of teens to provide effective counseling to them. This seminar will explore the challenges of treating this population and consider many different effective counseling strategies.
