    Description: You know that point when treatment feels stuck? Goals are clearly outlined, the client “understands” the obstacles and is a willing participant in the work but results are stalled. At the heart of these difficult treatment moments is coding in implicit memory. At the heart of the solutions is working at re-working these implicit memory codes.

    Objectives

    By the end of this workshop, participants will:

    1. Gain an overview of the 3 types of implicit memory.
    2. Understand how, what and why material is encoded in implicit memory vs explicit memory.
    3. Be able to identify therapeutic approaches that are effective for pinpointing and changing implicit memory coding.
    4. Be exposed to a host of brain and body based therapies that speak the “language” of implicit memory.

    Presenter: Lynn Turner, PhD, LCSW

    CEUs:  Category 1 | 3 CEUs per workshop/Total CEUs if all three attended 

    The More Attuned Therapist not only understands her client’s attachment style or nurture, but also understands her client’s nature or innate temperament type.

    The Enneagram is a system of inborn temperament types, discerned by ancient cultures and recorded by the Ancient Greeks. By learning this system, therapists are able to help their clients understand innate behavioral tendencies which can interact with childhood triggers such as attachment issues. For example, one temperament type, the perfectionist, notices what is out of place and has a strong urge to correct whatever is not “right”. If this client is the wife of a man who is the “easy-going” type, noticing very little out of place type, usually ADD, the wife’s frustration can be predicted. If both the husband and the wife had attachment disorders or other childhood issues, their temperament types would also predict their even stronger reactivities to each other’s behavioral tendencies by temperament. A psychotherapist armed with temperament knowledge can help ease a clients self-criticism over temperament normalities as well as carry a deeper understanding of her client’s overall issues. While learning a new “system” or theory can look time consuming, the Enneagram types can be easily grasped by psychotherapist and client when they are taught pragmatically around behaviors and feelings.

    Lynn’s training in brain theories has lead her to believe that our brains are wired in utero with our Temperament. Innate temperament wiring leaves us vulnerable to our nurturing environment in specific ways which will be explained. This training will teach not only the nine different types, but their relationship to our three brains (Paul McClean 1960). The Ancient Greeks knew that each type had a specific relationship with one of the three brains and that this guided their behavior. Lynn also teaches the interactions of the various types across the circle of 9 types. These interactions create our many differences and similarities, but allow for our uniqueness.

    Lynn Turner, PhD, LCSW, has been using knowledge of the Enneagram Temperament System to help her clients, friends and family since 1995. Lynn leads 2 workshops annually on the Enneagram in which each of the 9 types have a chance to be interviewed by seminar members and the leader. These temperament “panels” provide evidence to everyone present that each type adds intrigue to relationships. When these relationship patterns are understood, life becomes easier for all involved. A 3 session workshop teaching clinicians of all levels how to use the Enneagram Temperament Typing with their clients. While numerous researchers have analyzed inborn temperament stability of various types over 50 years, the Enneagram Temperament System was written down by Ancient Greeks based on discoveries by earlier cultures.

    The presenter will show evidence that we are born with our temperaments or nature which must then interact with our nurture to create who we are.

    The first session of this workshop will include detailed descriptions of the 9 Enneagram Temperament Types and a booklet written by the presenter. Learning both the gifts and burdens of each innate hardwired temperament will allow clinicians to distinguish between the healthy and unhealthy aspects of each Temperament. 20 minutes will be devoted to questions from clinicians. Homework will be to find their own Enneagram Temperament and those of family members before the next session.

    The second 3 hour session, will describe how each Enneagram Temperament is related to our three brains, the visceral, limbic and Neo-cortex (McClean, 1960). Learning the alignment of temperament to our heart, gut or mind, increases self-understanding for the client and skill for the clinician. By combining nature (Enneagram) and nurture (attachment or a traumatic event) clinicians will learn to more deeply understand their client's individual dilemma's or issues. In this session we will also explore the participants own Enneagram Temperament by interviewing panels by type. Homework will be to think about how at least two clients fit the Enneagram Temperament Typing and how the therapist might bring this thinking into the therapy room.

    The third 3 hour session will be devoted to exploring how to use the Enneagram Temperament Typing with clients. The presenter will talk about her 24 years of experience with examples of using he Enneagram Temperament Typing with Individuals, Couples and Children. Then, clinicians will discuss their thoughts about 2 clients they have identified and how this identification might be useful in their practice. Lastly there will be an hour for questions concerning using the Enneagram Typing in therapy.

    Session 2: Objectives

    By the end of Class 2 participants should be able to:

    1. Identify the Enneagram Types in each of the three brain Triads.
    2. Identify the three Triangles or connections of the Enneagram.

    Presenter: Linda Friskey, LCSW-C

    Category 1 | 3 CEUs 

    Workshop Description:

    This workshop is for clinical social workers and other mental health clinicians in Maryland who want to learn about the new "Red Flag Law" in Maryland as it pertains to clinicians. Also known as "Extreme Risk Protective Orders" law, this law which went into effect in October gives clinicians the legal right to petition for the removal of firearms from the possession of a patient/client who may use them to harm themselves or others. This law has been called a tool for safety, and as such it is not a mandate that we use this tool. Nevertheless, there are important questions we need to ask ourselves: how can we use this tool ethically? When should we use it? When should we not use it? How do we use it? Do we tell our patients/clients about the potential of our going to court to make a petition to remove their gun from their possession? This workshop is an opportunity to learn the steps to take to make a petition for gun removal and to contemplate questions clinicians need to ask themselves regarding this law and whether they want to make changes in their practice. Specific focus will be on the topic of informed consent. This is uncharted water, and together we can work on shaping best practices regarding gun removal as it pertains to our clinical practices and to our patients/clients. 

    About the Presenter: The workshop will be presented by Linda Friskey, LCSW-C, who specializes in the intersection of biological/somatic and emotional/psychological concerns. Linda is a seasoned clinician practicing at Linda Friskey, LLC in Columbia, Maryland. 

    Objectives:

    1. Discuss the main points of the law.
    2. Discuss what the law states specific to clinicians in Maryland. 3. Begin to formulate answers to questions discussed in this ethics course.
    3. Think of three ways this law may change their practice of clinical work, or make the decision that they do not need to make any changes.
    4. Know where to find articles to read more about red flag laws as they pertain to clinicians.
    5. Discuss pros and cons of requesting that guns be removed and breaking confidentiality in cases in which the situation does not rise to the level of emergency petition or hospitalization.

    Agenda

    Hour One: Introduce "red flag laws". Each participant will read the law and we will discuss it as it pertains to clinicians

    Hour Two: Discuss the law within the context of the Maryland social work ethics law. (Please note: non-social work clinicians will need to ask their boards whether this course will count for them as ethics credits or as other credits)

    Hour Three: Case discussions, pros and cons of making a petition. How to make a petition
