Class 1 – What is Bipolar Really?

Learn what Bipolar is and isn’t. Through videos of individuals experiencing both mania and depression associated with Bipolar, you can leave this session with a clear understanding of the disorder. This workshop will provide an overview of the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria for Bipolar disorders, including Bipolar I and Bipolar II. Attention will be paid to the differentiation of Bipolar I and II in regards to the presence or absence of psychosis. Common Myths regarding Bipolar Disorder will be discussed, and challenged. Attention will be paid toward the function of anti-depressants, such as SSRIs and SNRIs, in the treatment of the depressive symptoms associated with the disorder. The often under-identified serotonin-syndrome will be discussed as well. (Trainer Justin Griepentrog, LGSW, Director Compassionate Grace Counseling Center )



Class 2 – From Adolescence to Independence: Preparing Adolescents for Independent Living 

To become successful adults, youth must have a positive self-esteem, feel connected to a positive community of support, have a sense of purpose in the world, and believe that they have the power to control their destiny. The ability to make decisions and take a positive life direction promotes action and productivity later in life. Yet, the child welfare system often errs in the direction of taking charge when youth are making decisions.

The 1999, the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP) was created to ensure that young people involved in the foster care system have access to additional education, training, housing assistance, counseling and other services so that they may become successful adults. Through interactive discussions, real case scenarios and group activities participants will gain an understanding of the Chafee Act and develop the skills necessary to foster independent living skills in adolescents and young adults. (Trainer Tara Rice, LGSW, Director the TARA Center)
