2-Day Intensive Workshop: Treating Complex Trauma with Internal Family Systems (IFS) is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held from Feb 13 - 14, 2020 at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort&Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.6 contact hours / 12.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ / 12.5 clock hours of continuing education instruction. Target Audience: • Counselors • Psychiatrists • Social Workers • Psychologists • Psychiatrists • Therapists • Addiction Counselors • Nurses • Marriage and Family Therapists • Other Professionals Who Work within the Mental Health Fields Course Description: Most modes of psychotherapy believe to have “parts” is pathological. NOT in Internal Family Systems (IFS). In IFS, the idea of multiplicity of the mind is normal. Every part has a good intention, and every part has value. Even for trauma survivors. In the treatment of trauma, IFS is different from traditional phase-oriented treatments. Instead of starting with building resources in clients before processing traumatic memories, it welcomes extreme symptoms from the onset, learns about their positive protective intentions and gets their permission to access the traumatic wounds. IFS also differs from traditional attachment focused therapies, both value the therapeutic relationship; however, IFS additionally supports the relationship between the client’s “Self” and their part as the primary healing agent. Hailed by Dr. van der Kolk, the world’s leading expert in trauma, IFS is the treatment method that all clinicians should know. Nearly all clients with a trauma history have innate abilities that help them improve their mental health if they listen to their parts. IFS does just that. IFS is an evidence-based approach for clinicians working with traumatized clients. Once you see it in action, you’ll want to incorporate it into your practice. Join IFS and trauma expert Frank Anderson, MD, colleague of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and Dr. Richard Schwartz, in this transformational certificate training. Clients will leave your office with skills to use outside the therapy room to help them master their emotions. This experiential training will show video demonstrations and include exercises and meditation techniques to use with your clients. Objectives: • Integrate the IFS model into your clinical practice and accelerate the healing from complex trauma. • Identify, specify and clarify the protective parts of clients with trauma histories to help with assessment and treatment planning. • Offer an alternative view of symptoms and psychopathology, showing how client’s parts are actually trying to protect them from emotional pain and psychological pain. • Demonstrate how IFS translates common comorbidities into parts language, showing a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders. • Communicate how IFS increases the therapist’s curious and compassionate self when working with clients who have trauma histories. • Differentiate a therapeutic issue from a biological condition for better decision making in your clinical practice. • Compare traditional attachment theory perspectives on healing to the IFS view (an internal attachment model) and learn to trust the clients’ internal relationship to heal their traumatic wounds. • Determine if trauma symptoms are rooted in sympathetic activation or parasympathetic withdrawal to help inform the treatment process. • Demonstrate IFS specific therapeutic techniques that shift arousal and withdrawal, allowing quicker access to clients’ traumatic vulnerabilities. • Develop a deep understanding of how neuroscience informs therapeutic decisions in IFS therapy. • Integrate IFS with your current treatment approaches including EMDR, DBT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. • Compare IFS to traditional phase-oriented treatment and learn accelerated ways of accessing and healing traumatic wounds.

Psychopharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians: Proven Strategies for Prescription Success (Feb 17, 2020)
Feb 17, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249.99 | Honolulu, Hawaii
Psychopharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians: Proven Strategies for Prescription Success is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 17, 2020 at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort&Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours. Target Audience: • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants • Physicians • Pharmacists • Nurses • Social Workers • Counselors • Therapists • Psychologists • Case Managers Course Description: Psychiatry is one of the most challenging areas of medicine, secondary to the subjective nature of the specialty. As clinicians, we have no objective data to base our course of treatment on. Psychopharmacology and psychotherapy are our best options in terms of treatments and therapy is only successful if the patient is committed to attending every session, completing their homework, and willing to make the necessary life changes to improve their mental health. Medication can be very helpful in terms of alleviating mental health symptoms; however, choosing the right medication and/or combination of meds is crucial to achieving successful outcomes. Secondary to the psychiatry shortage, providers in other specialties find themselves treating mental health patients, which can present additional challenges. This course will arm attendees with a valuable update on the different classes of psychiatric medications and facilitate a deeper level of understanding in terms of how these medications work on their respective neurotransmitters and how they work in conjunction with one another. It is uncommon for mental health patients to be on only one medication, as a combination of medications is often required to reach the desired level of improvement. After this course, you will be able to identify effective medication regimens for patients based on their psychiatric history and presenting symptoms, ultimately contributing to quality of life improvements in patients with mental health conditions. Course Objectives: • Recognize ways to conceptualize psychiatric symptomatology outside the box. • Evaluate common medical conditions that you may inadvertently diagnose as psychiatric in nature. • Analyze the 4 main neurotransmitters and how their imbalance influences different psychiatric disorders. • Compare efficacy of the newer class of serotonin modulators to the other widely-used antidepressant classes. • Examine frequently asked questions regarding the impact of alcohol and marijuana for patients taking psychotropic medications. • Learn strategic ways to customize treatment plans based on your patient's individual needs.
