Reaching Across the Racial Divide: It Starts with Us and Ends with Us

  Racism is deeply embedded in our psyches  and arises in the way we  relate to others in our personal lives, professions, and community groups.  Through educational and experiential engagement in small and large groups, we will create space to discuss and process the divide of racism and confront its damaging possibilities.  Group facilitators will encourage participants’ bravery and risk-taking as they interact from their own personal narratives in U.S. racialized history.   Marcée M. Turner, PhD. ,  Marcia Warren Edelman, LPCC ,  and Phillip Horner, LCSW, CGP , bring a collaborative and dedicated focus to working with racism, identity, and diversity by supporting groups and individuals to discover and change the narrative around racism, and to make new choices towards meaningful communication and appreciation across difference.

Register for your free ticket here! Limited Seating

We’ve learned a lot about The brain since we started studying it with MRI machines in 2010. In this workshop we will examine how to use this knowledge to inform our therapeutic  work with our clients covering a wide range of topics, including:

  • Anxiety
  • depression
  • ASD’s
  • Bipolar disorder A
  • DHD
  • OCD’s

As well as other brain regulation issues we are discovering as we explore this new and exciting frontier  

Dan Fox LPC has spent the past 15 years helping adolescents (and their families) with the work of growing into healthy, happy adults. His diverse background includes teaching high school, running a summer camp, school counseling, and directing September High School.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Dan has brought these experiences into his clinical work. He is committed to the idea that there is hope for your teen and relief for your family. Dan uses a variety of approaches to help teens and families get more functional and feel more successful. Some clients do better when the work is done out of the office. Some benefit from Dan’s short-term, cognitive-behavioral interventions. For other clients, Dan approaches ongoing therapy from a Humanistic and Gestalt view.

Dan provides talks and workshops for schools, summer camps, and other organizations seeking to understand adolescents and help them grow up. He also provides consultation and coaching by phone for parents around the country.

Essentials of Diagnosing and Treating Bipolar Disorders

Workshop Description:
This 1.5-hour workshop will focus primarily on assessment of bipolar disorders. By the end of
the evening attendees will be able to:
 differentiate between bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, and major depressive disorder
(MDD);
 know how to screen for bipolar disorder when someone presents in a depressive episode,
and understand the complexity of differentiating depression in MDD vs. bipolar disorder;
 properly diagnosis mood disorders vs. substance-induced mood episodes; and,
 know how to assess for hypomania or prodromal manic symptoms when a previously
depressed client comes in reporting significant improvement.

Time permitting, Alisha also will share an overview of the treatment model used at the
Sutherland Bipolar Center, emphasizing a couple of powerful tools that you can put to immediate use in your practice.
The workshop format will include lecture, handouts, case examples, and Q&A.
