Workshop A

Families, Therapy, and Turning Anger and Fights into Constructive Conflict

Techniques to turn conflict into learning possibilities (such as understanding the feelings behind anger, redirecting it, identifying problematic family triangles, reframing) will be presented. We will also examine our conflict styles as helping professionals and how those styles may inform and/or limit how we work with confrontation and hostility in client families. There will be time to look at how to apply these ideas in your work setting.

Workshop B

Supervision of Clinical Work in Your Organization

In this experiential workshop we will look at the strengths and challenges of different types of supervision (such as peer group supervision, live supervision, supervision facilitated by someone within the organization, or outside the organization).Ways to bring clinical information into supervision (e.g. feedback from clients, videotaping, case notes, clinical reports, genograms) will also be presented. We will brainstorm how to implement the ideas in your work settings.
