    Race STILL Matters: Between the World and US*


    (3CE)*


    Free to NESTTD members.


    Registration is now open.



    Program descriptionSince racism and cultural bias affect all of us, individual practitioners must constantly re-evaluate their own attitudes, biases and personal experiences with people of different races and ethnic groups, gender, social class, religious and spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, age, and mental and physical ability. Dr. Bailey’s presentation will explore the role that cultural humility, intersectionality, and minority stress theory can have on the therapeutic relationship. He will also discuss utilizing a social justice framework in the therapeutic relationship and will examine the how mental health professionals can play an important part in promoting equity, equality and fairness in their practice; as well as the role that they must play in addressing racism, and other forms of oppression in the clinical environment.


    *Between the World and Us is borrowed from the title of Ta-Nehisi Coates award winning book – Between the World and Me.

    My Identity Matters: The Intersection of Trauma and Racism 


    (3CE)*


    Registration is now open.  Attendance at morning program is a prerequisite for attending this Intensive. Lunch option available for $10.

    Space will be limited for the Intensive.


    Program description: This Intensive will explore how racism, discrimination, and racialized violence are primary or secondary traumas for many individuals. The stark reality of hate in America disproportionally impacts individuals who have been historically discriminated against and who have been generationally disenfranchised. Since individuals who are a part of these communities deserve access to safe and affirming places to get much needed physical and emotional care, participants will take part in an interpersonal dialogue on the  impact of racism and oppression in their practice. Participants will examine the role that an understanding of the concepts of intersectionality, race, gender identity and sexual identity can have in the delivery of effective trauma informed care.

    9:00 am - 12:30 pm


    The Treatment of Patients with Dissociative Disorders (TOP DD) Network Study: A Promising Program for Helping Stabilize Highly Dissociative Individuals.



    Summary of program: The TOP DD Network Study is a web-based psychoeducation program for patients with dissociative disorders (DD) and their psychotherapists. This international program aims to enhance DD patients’ ability to 1) understand, accept, and regulate their emotions; 2) recognize and manage their symptoms; and 3) gradually improve their ability to maintain their safety and  enhance their self-understanding.  It also aims to teach therapists a conceptualization of DD patients’ symptoms and some basic interventions that stabilize DD patients’ struggles with self-harm and suicidality.  This online program, in conjunction with individual psychotherapy, is associated with reduced symptoms, improved quality of life and hopefulness, and enhanced emotion regulation. Bethany Brand will describe Network study participants’ progress throughout the study and present an overview of the program.  In this morning program, she will also discuss and demonstrate some of the basic stabilization techniques taught in the TOP DD program.


    Bethany Brand, PhD, is a Psychology Professor at Towson University and she specializes in the assessment and treatment of trauma-related disorders   She has over 25 years of clinical and research experience.  Dr. Brand has been honored with numerous research, teaching and clinical awards and served on several national task forces that developed guidelines for the assessment and treatment of trauma-related disorders. Dr. Brand is the Principal Investigator on a series of international treatment studies of patients with dissociative disorders as well as studies that are developing methods for distinguishing dissociative disorders from other conditions including malingering. She has served as an expert witness on trauma in forensic cases at the state, federal, and international level.

    Incorporating the Findings of TOP DD with Severely Dissociated Clients: Anticipating, Understanding, and Working through the Roadblocks to Stabilization


    (3CE)*


    About the program: Bethany Brand will present in more detail some of the exercises used in the TOP DD Network study.  There are a series of practice and journaling exercises patients complete as part of the program.  She will discuss common “roadblocks” that highly dissociative patients may present when attempting to stabilize their safety including common phobic reactions to dissociated self-states, their bodies and sensations, and their emotions.  Through role plays and discussion, she will demonstrate how to work with severely dissociative clients to gradually help them develop self-understanding and acceptance so they can tolerate feeling, knowing and experiencing disowned aspects of themselves.
