    In some ways the situations we face during the pandemic is similar to other situations that trigger anxiety and depression. In some ways they are profoundly different. Anxiety especially and sometimes depression are about the future. Currently, our future is significantly different from our past and is unpredictable in many ways. A new perspective is to see the role our new future plays in triggering anxiety and depression. Being clear about this can helps us cope and ultimately thrive. In the context of the future an antidote to pandemic anxiety and depression is self-confidence. Let’s explore exactly what this is.

    The pandemic challenges us to learn some profound lessons, like “invisible things are real,” for example. There are other lessons. Let’s explore what they are, why they are profound, and how to help our clients as they struggle with these lessons.

    Workshop Objectives:

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Identify the similarities and differences between currently recognized and pandemic triggered anxiety and depression
    2. Use this new understanding to help patients with their anxiety and depression
    3. Describe the “lessons” that we can learn as a result of our experience with the pandemic
    4. Help patients identify and learn pandemic lessons as appropriate in a therapy session

            CEUs: Category 1 | 3.0 

            Clinicians are seeing an increasing number of adolescents and young adults who, in spite of treatment with multiple antidepressants and a variety of other medications, remain mired in depression, often accompanied by irritability, anxiety, and distractibility. These individuals often lament that they “have tried every drug there is” without substantial or sustained benefit.

            One reason for their predicament is that many of them are not simply depressed. At least 40 percent of them actually have unrecognized bipolar illness. Antidepressants have been shown to be only marginally better than placebo in acute bipolar depression and have been proven ineffective in preventing future depressive episodes in those with bipolar illness. In a subset of bipolar patients, antidepressants can cause or worsen irritable, agitated depression, increase the risk of suicide, and, paradoxically, lead to more frequent depressive episodes. Effective psychotherapy often proves to be difficult, if not impossible, when bipolar patients are misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated with antidepressants.

            This seminar will provide clinicians with a four-part, clinical diagnostic method to distinguish patients with borderline personality and major depressive disorder from those with bipolar illness. Clinicians will learn about the medications that should form the foundation of treatment for bipolar illness, including the one medication that has been repeatedly shown to dramatically reduce the risk of completed suicide. They will also learn about potent, non-drug treatments for depression, mania, and rapid-cycling that they can put to immediate use in their practices.

            Workshop Objectives:

            Participants will learn:

            1. The four lines of clinical evidence that must be assessed to distinguish bipolar depression from unipolar depression and borderline personality
            2. A key issue to address in the psychotherapy of bipolar illness: Denial of the illness
            3. The research showing why antidepressants are the wrong treatment for bipolar depression
            4. The one drug repeatedly shown to dramatically reduce the risk of suicide
            5. Why atypical antipsychotics should not be used in place of lithium and other drugs proven to prevent new episodes of depression and mania

                Agenda:

                Depression: Unipolar or bipolar? (and why it matters)

                • Beyond symptoms: Why an evaluation of family history, course of illness,
                • and response to antidepressants is critical to diagnosis and treatment
                • A presidential candidate's family history and a teen on Zoloft who
                • committed suicide: What their stories tell us about diagnosis

                Presenter: Robert S. Seiler, Jr., LCSW-C

                CEUs: Category 1 | 3.0 (Participants take part in the break-out sessions in order to receive the CEUs)

                This presentation will present simple, powerful exercises that therapists and clients can use to reduce anxiety and enhance connection. The exercises were developed by Stanley Rosenberg, an American Cranial-Sacral Therapist based in Denmark, and are based on the Polyvagal Theory of Stephen Porges. The exercises activate the vagus nerve, thereby lowering heart rate, reducing muscle tension, and fostering feelings of safety and calm. They also activate other cranial nerves used in nonverbal communication, thereby making it easier for us to connect with and feel safe with others. Participants will learn the exercises and their effects, will practice demonstrating and teaching them, and will learn ways to use them in therapy. The material is suitable for clinicians of all levels of experience.

                Workshop Objectives:

                Participants will:

                1. Describe the Polyvagal Theory of the autonomic nervous system
                2. Describe the social engagement system (the five cranial nerves involved in interpersonal connection)
                3. Demonstrate and teach three of Stanley Rosenberg’s exercises
                4. Describe how the exercises activate the social engagement system
                5. Describe the short-term experiential effects of the exercises
                6. Describe the experiential effects of regular practice of the exercises
                7. Use the exercises in clinical work

                    Agenda:

                    • Introduction
                    • The Polyvagal Theory
