Upcoming Events at Sandstone Care in Colorado

We regularly host a variety of events at Sandstone Care. Most events are ideal for health professionals looking for fresh perspectives, educational presentations, and training. Each educational presentation offers CEUs and CPDs.

Fantasies and Families: Working with Systemic Unreal in Addiction Recovery

Friday, February 15, 2019, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm MST

What is the interior world of the younger clients that struggle with a variety of addictions and mental health issues? For many, it is a world of fantasy that is in stark contrast to the reality of their circumstances when they present for treatment. This can lead us as providers to dismiss their internal world, fall into the trap of placing our own values on them, and labeling them as resistant to change, much in the way that society has done.

Parents can also escape to their own fantasy world as they avoid the present crisis and resort to their unrealistic expectations for change. What has resulted is an existential dilemma for two generations with both using fantasy as primary coping mechanism. This presentation will explore these concepts of multigenerational fantasy and discuss ways to address them in treatment with a new lens.

Presented by John Brundrick, LPC & James Abrams, LPC, LAC

Gender Awareness & Responsiveness

Friday, March 15,  8:30 am - 12:00 pm  MST

This course provides healthcare providers with the necessary skills to offer more mindful, resourceful, and inclusive treatment to their patients. What does it take to be a culturally aware healthcare provider working with LGBTQPIA+ individuals and their families?

This training will focus on the intersectionality of biological sex, gender, and sexuality as it pertains to identity development, which is relevant to everyone. We will also explore the necessity of trauma-informed care as it relates to the clinical implications of marginalization, and how we can utilize our positions to create safer spaces and models for our clients.

Presented by Sorin Thomas, LPC, LAC (xe,xyr,xem)

Intellectual Disabilities & Addiction

Friday, March 1, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm MST

We often hear about Dual Diagnosis in Substance Abuse, but what happens when that Dual Diagnosis is an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD). Individuals who live with IDD often have an increase in substance use risk factors, and a decrease in the effectiveness of traditional substance use treatment modalities. Come join us for a morning of delving into these challenges and learning how altering treatment modalities can support IDD clients.
