Educator's Summit: 

Rehearsal Space: Providing Safe, Effective Environments that Encourage Therapist Growth in the Age of AI
In the process of therapy education, there is arguably no more essential task than providing a safe, effective method for students to “rehearse” their therapy skills before engaging with actual clients. While there are a number of different methods for doing so, the rapidly growing world of generative AI provides a radical new paradigm for student preparation. This session for the Educator’s Summit will feature a summary of some of the traditional, tried-and-true methods of therapy “rehearsal,” how generative AI may change therapy education for better or worse, the role that internship sites and program gatekeeping play, and an open discussion among educators about the challenges and opportunities for initiating students into the process of therapy.

Sexual Wisdom and the Female Brain (1 CEU)
I am not looking for RIGHT or WRONG, I am just looking for ME! Everyone should understand their sexual brain science. The Neurological sexual self is not to be feared, but to be embraced. It is okay to be your sexual self. First, you must know who you are, the secret part of yourself that only one finds after a deep dive into the subconscious Limbic Systems (Alpha, Theta, Delta). NRT is a new way to view the sex brain and how it plays out biologically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually. Therapists will be able to walk away with new techniques and knowledge of how to better serve their clients with sexual issues and or trauma.

Narrative Therapy & EMDR: Trauma, Addiction & Teens (1 CEU)
Many adolescents in addiction treatment have experienced complex trauma from extensive physical and sexual abuse. In our experience, EMDR alone often results in a re-experiencing of trauma. Combining EMDR with narrative therapy facilitates a firmer grounding process, fewer abreactions, and a sense of hope for clients who are easily overstimulated.

Reimagining Working with Marginalized Communities (1 Cultural Diversity or Competency CEU)
There is no doubt that rates of mental illness have skyrocketed in recent years. Individuals are dealing with more fear, anxiety, anger, and uncertainty differently than in the past. Furthermore, societal issues like racial disparities, financial instability, health concerns, governmental issues, etc., further exacerbate mental illness. The implications of mental illness are often nuanced in marginalized communities because of the systemic factors associated with it. There is a growing awareness of mental illness and even the need to seek therapeutic services, but often, individuals do not receive adequate care because of barriers in place. These barriers can be internal or external, thus, the solution may require us to take a systemic lens. This means considering historical and contextual factors that impact mental illness, challenging norms that mental illness may look different for marginalized groups, and balancing resilience despite adversities. The solution requires reimagining how we view mental illness both as individuals, clinicians, and as a society.
Denise Williams, Ph.D., LMFT
