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.

One of the most common things that I hear is "how do you get a group off of the ground!?" So many clinicians have a goal of to adding group therapy to their practice but hit a wall when it's time to start market it, or, they start a group only to see it fizzle and die a few months later! This workshop will help you to find your identity as a group psychotherapist, and develop a plan for future groups.

In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore the true meaning and practices behind self-nurturance and self-care. This is a dynamic process and one that evolves with us as we expand personally and professionally. It often requires that we revisit our process over time.
Often times as professionals in the health care field we engage in some level of self-care to simply stay afloat, yet we encourage our clients and patients to do much more. Together we will explore if you feel in alignment with the way that you are of service to yourself and others. You will have the opportunity to unpack the connection between your passion, purpose and self nurturance. We will have the opportunity connect, engage in experiential exercises and will leave with take aways to apply to your life going forward.
