Managing TBI & Addiction in a COVID19 World

Friday, August 7th from 9:00-11:00

Presented by: Dominique Condevaux LPC LAC

Where: Sandstone Care Zoom platform

Course description:

This professional development webinar is designed to educate the behavioral health specialist with a primer in treating co-occurring disorders of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and substance use disorder (SUD). With similarities in outward (physical) behaviors and (mental) attitudes, differentiating between the two disorders has proven to be a challenge to many treatment providers. Following this webinar, the clinician will have additional information to better differentiate between the role of TBI and addictions in client presentation while working with clients exclusively through an online (telehealth) platform.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify and define addiction and brain injury to understand the similarities and differences the two may present.
  • Identify and explain assessments used to assist in diagnosing brain injury.
  • Discuss addiction treatment modifications used with brain injured clients.


Dominique Condevaux is a licensed addiction and professional counselor, a master addiction counselor who is nationally and distance credentialed. She specializes in working with addictions, trauma, grief and transitions. Although, Dominique's private practice is located in Aurora, CO, she practices exclusively through telehealth during this unpredictable time of COVID19.

When: Friday, April 27th, 2020, 9am - 11am

This training aims to go beyond covering the latest acronyms of various gender and sexual orientation identities to include learning about community resources (clinical and social resources) that can assist clinicians in providing holistic care and connecting clients to additional resources outside of therapy.

Mental health professionals can expect to leave this training feeling more confident and competent in serving Transgender and non-binary clients who are questioning their gender identity or sexual orientation and clients who are certain of their identity but don't know where to go next (i.e. connect to health providers for gender confirmation surgeries, hormone replacement therapies, etc).

This training will include an experiential component to increase the clinician's self-awareness related to privileges and oppression related to gender identity as well includes a case study experiential activity to promote deeper learning and application.

The Holistic Divorce: How to Separate the Family Unit Without Destroying It

When: February 28, 2020, 9am - 11am
Where: Sandstone Care Denver (7555 East Hampden Avenue #103, Denver, CO 80231)

About The Workshop:
Divorce is often an overwhelming and emotionally devastating experience. When we start contemplating divorce, too often we think the first step is to hire an attorney when it may be best to save the attorney for last. Few truly realize the value, efficiency, and comfort a team of experts can provide at this critical stage in a relationship.

Each of us has witnessed, in our respective professions, the devastation resulting from couples having gone through a “traditional” litigious divorce process. Family ties are irreversibly broken. Savings are depleted. Innocent children become the collateral damage. It is heartbreaking to witness! It is the deep desire to help divorcing couples that brought the four of us together—to end the needless financial and emotional hemorrhaging and assist them in uncoupling in a much healthier way.

Join our team of divorce professionals, consisting of a family law attorney, certified divorce financial analyst, licensed relationship counselor, and real estate divorce specialist, to learn about and share a different, healthier, more holistic way to untie the marital knot.

Our informative presentation about the ABC's of divorce includes an overview of:

  • The divorce process from start to finish
  • Four options for divorce (including the Collaborative Divorce Process)
  • Financial planning during and post-divorce
  • Addressing unexpected emotional pitfalls and communication challenges
  • Key considerations for real estate decisions
  • Q&A with our panel of divorce professionals

You will learn what to expect and how to prepare for divorce in order to save money, time, and stress. The information will be presented in a logical and compassionate way to provide a clearer understanding of the divorce process from start to finish.

Divorce is hard and emotional, but it doesn't have to be ugly and expensive.

This workshop provides an invaluable overview for anyone facing the complexities of divorce and is designed to help at any stage in untying the marital knot. Come away with important information and resources that will educate, prepare, and protect you and your family while moving through the divorce process.

Fantasies and Families: Working with Systemic Unreal in Addiction Recovery

April 19th, 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
