Class I – 10:00am – 1:00pm

Self-Disclosure: An Ethical Approach to “Knowing What to say, When to Say it, and How to Say it” (3 Category I Ethics CEUs)

Self-Disclosure can be a highly effective tool in connecting with others. In therapeutic situations, a certain amount of disclosure always occurs. Clients can discern (or guess at) our socio-economic status, gender, clothing preferences, and marital status, to name a few things, just by looking at us. But when is it appropriate to reveal our personal story when talking with clients? When they ask us about our own lives, should we answer the questions? What if the questions seem like they are a challenge to our “professional expertise”.

In this training, Tonya Logan, Founder and CEO of Kayla’s village, will discuss her own story and her approach to disclosure in working with clients. Participants will be encouraged to view challenges by clients in a positive and strength-based framework. Clinicians will gain a deeper ability to view clients seemingly threatening questions in a less prejudicial manner.  Clinicians will come away with a better understanding of working with families, clients and even themselves.  (Trainer, Tonya Logan,  LCSW-C, LICSW, Founder and CEO, Kayla’s Village)


Class 2- 2:00pm-5:00pm

Teaching Parenting Skills to Unskilled Parents (3 Category I CEUs)

Most poor parenting comes down to a lack of understanding of child development and extreme frustration. Even parents who are physically abusive often justify their actions by saying that their child is abnormally stubborn or just a bad kid who doesn’t listen. They genuinely feel that excessive physical discipline is the only way they can “correct” their children and prevent them from falling into a life of failure or crime. With the right approach most parents can be taught to effectively parent their children. This training will look at effective methods for training parents, including the highly regarded Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). PCIT is a family-centered treatment approach which has been proven effective for abused and at-risk children between the ages of 2½ to 12 and their biological or foster caregivers. This interactive training will familiarize professionals with parent teaching techniques and help them understand the uses and limitations of teaching parenting skills. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
