Class 1 – 10:00am-1:00pm (3 CEUs)

Imago Relationship Therapy:  Becoming Competent in couple’s work

Couple’s work can often feel overwhelming for clinicians. In spite of years of training in psychotherapy, the thought of having to manage the energy and the conflict of two people leads many therapists to run the other way.  Imago Relationship Therapy is a thirty-year old approach that has provided the clinician with a new perspective into conceptualizing conflict as well as a clear structure for running a session, allowing the therapist to remain in control of the room and achieve phenomenal results.

This interactive training will help participants understand the theoretical underpinnings of Imago Relationship Therapy as well as the tools employed in a therapy session. Clinicians will learn how to better conceptualize the conflict that the couples is experiencing, and how to create enough safety to de-escalate the conflict and help the couple reconnect. Participants will also be exposed to the Imago Dialogue process and how it can be used to elicit more effective communication, understanding, and compassion. (Trainer Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin, MS, LCPC is a certified Imago Relationship Therapy Advanced Clinician. Known as the Relationship Rabbi, after his blog by the same name,  Rabbi Slatkin is the author of numerous publications including co-authorship of the Jewish Version of Couplehood as a Spiritual Path. He is also a founder of the Marriage Restoration Project)

Class 2 –  1:45pm-4:45pm (3 CEUs)

Evolving Our Cultural Competence

Even great clinicians are in fact only human. As professional as we are, it may sometimes require a lot of energy to maintain complete objectivity with our clients. We may begin to see red flags that remind us to take a step back. As we aim to help the client understand their own motives, values and beliefs, our best service comes from a place of objectivity. Is it possible to consistently attain this lofty goal?  Is it possible to work with clients who display a real antagonistic attitude toward our own values and beliefs?

This seminar will add to our existing base of knowledge and cultural competence. We will explore and discuss the developmental process of cultural competency that is continually evolving as society evolves around us. (Trainer Tzipora Frager, LCSW-C, Partner Tree of Life Counselling )

*Evening Ethics*


Class 3 (Evening) 5:30 – 8:30 (3 Category I Ethics CEUs)

How can I be Ethical When You’re Driving Me Crazy!? Surviving the Emotional Hazards of the Workplace

 The work place throws together people who did not choose each other, but were hired to work towards a common goal. Workplace dynamics create challenges for professionals as they struggle to achieve their own goals while meeting the objectives and expectations of the organization. But what are our Ethical obligations to colleagues? What does the Code of Ethics have to say about this topic?

 Working with difficult people actually affords clinicians an opportunity to hone their clinical skills while learning to work out unique challenges.

This interactive training will help you understand effective methods for working with difficult people and gain a personal serenity that will allow them to thrive while working through the emotional ups and downs of the workplace. (Trainer Jeffrey Davidson LCSW-C, LICSW)
