Treatment of Complex Trauma: A Sequenced Relationship Based Approach
Presented by Christine Courtois, PhD, ABPP

This presentation will provide a description of a meta-model for treating complex trauma. It includes a recommended sequence of treatment in three primary phases, each with associated tasks. The treatment is founded on an emphasis on safety to begin de-conditioning the stress response. Since posttraumatic reactions inherently involve mind-body reactions, the treatment emphasis must be on both. Evidence-based and empirically-supported treatment strategies will be discussed, along with the recommendations made in various sets of treatment guidelines.

Food, Addiction and Recovery: A New Approach to Healing the Body-Mind
Presented by Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP

Exciting new evidence-based science has emerged which outlines the essential and pivotal role healthy nutrition plays in the achievement and maintenance of addiction recovery. Research funded by the NIH's National Institute of Drug Abuse has demonstrated a critical and similar affect of drugs and specific food products on the brain's reward center and prefrontal cortex. Specifically, there are transfer addictions from substances to hyper palatable (sugary/fatty/salty) foods. Addictive eating behaviors co-occur with mood and binge eating disorders. This groundbreaking science will be presented along with assessment tools and an integrative nutrition and lifestyle plan that practitioners can implement to guide their clients.

Sexual Evolution: Love and Sex Reformatted for the Digital Age or How we got from Spin-the-Bottle to Sexting in a Single Generation

Presented by Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S

As we continue our rapid cultural shift from our familiar analog world into the wild, wild digital one, sexual and relationship norms are changing. What defines sex, a relationship, dating, mating and even fidelity, (especially to a younger person today), is changing as meaningful and rapidly (if less visibly) now, as it did via 50 years ago resulting from the sexual revolution of the late 1960’s and early 1970’. This workshop by Rob Weiss, a clinical leader, author and subject expert in the intersection of digital technology and human sexuality, is designed to offer a broad, but concrete overview of the changing face of human relationships and sexuality related to life online. The ‘new sexuality’ provoked in great part by the Millennials and Gen Y generations’ unlimited access to sexual information (and experience) will be introduced. Attendees will gain insight into related current trends in online sexuality, both positive and negative, along with problems faced by parents, employers and loved ones related to our now instantaneous Internet-driven access to intensely pleasurable sexual imagery and casual, anonymous sex. Clinicians will also gain insight into the assessment, and diagnosis of addictive and compulsive sexual behavior, along with a review of the challenges being voiced by teen males whose porn abuse has left many with erectile and intimacy dysfunction. The session will briefly cover co-occurring disorders and and differential diagnosis of sexual issues related to the Internet. The training will also make available further referral and training resources for those clinicians motivated to gain further knowledge, help and experience with our very human sexual evolution.

3:15-4:45pm

A Therapeutic Approach to Stone Massage: Treating in Prone Position

In this fun and informative workshop you will learn how to work easier using CoreStones. There is growing concern over the safety of hot stone massage and proper training in this modality is a must. Incorporating hot stones in your work will enrich your massage therapy sessions as well as benefit you as a therapist. You will gain an understanding of the physiological effects of hot and cold stone massage and learn how to properly heat, cool and clean your stones for client safety. The contraindications of hot stone massage will be reviewed and you will feel confident, knowing when to safely incorporate hot stone work into your regular massage sessions. We will explore the muscles of the back, hips, back of the legs, arms and feet. Review anatomy and trigger points of the muscles most commonly involved in back pain and as you work with a partner, experience what hot stone massage feels like. In this workshop, I encourage you to think about techniques you are already using in your sessions and then imagine how you can make it easier on yourself and/or your client by using a stone tool. Stone massage can save your hands and extend your career – you will be working with more ease and less strain. While learning a new modality that can bring additional revenue, you will discover a product that can be used as a self-help or meditation tool for yourself and your clients.

Roman Torgovitsky and Sophia Chan: Return the Favor: Self Bodywork for Massage Therapists 

Are your arms, shoulders, and back aching from the massages that you give out to your clients?  Return the favor.  Your body has worked hard for you; now take the time out and give it a treat.  In this hands-on workshop, we will identify common issues that massage therapist face, discuss their etiology and pathophysiology, and then learn and experience effective and comfortable self bodywork techniques to address them.  The soma system® self bodywork method builds from a structural understanding of these injuries and utilizes modern research on myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and mindfulness to formulate sequences that treat not only the local injury, but also the structural root of the issues.  These techniques can help prolong your career by keeping you refreshed between clients and preventing the accumulation of overuse and stress injuries.  Many of your clients will also present with similar issues and can benefit from these techniques.  Learn them for yourselves and then teach them to your clients to take home.  This will help extend the benefits of your work and improve the body awareness of your clients, thereby reducing the stress on your own bodies during subsequent sessions.  Conditions addressed in this workshop will include: lower back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff strain, and wrist and hand injuries.

Ruth Werner: Making Research Relevant: Findings and Applications for 5 Conditions

Research about massage therapy is not the abstract exercise that you might think! The best research being conducted today is with professional therapists doing work in real-life settings so that results reflect what truly happens in a successful massage session or series. This produces results that can make you a better and more successful therapist, but only if you know how to access the right studies and apply their findings.

Massage for People with Special Needs

This is an inter-active course of study in which the participants will learn the physiological and psychological reasons for massage for people with special needs. In addition, students will learn about the special precautions required for people who have Down Syndrome, seizure disorders, etc., and about essential documentation for certain individuals. Students will learn through lecture, demonstrations of different strokes, and through role-playing. Participants will learn and practice a back-specific protocol for people who have to rely on wheelchairs. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to actively participate in the Inter-Disciplinary Team process to promote and explain how massage is beneficial to this population. 

 

Sunday CE Session (3 hrs)

 

Ruth Werner: The Ethics of Client Communication: Talking to Clients About Their Health

How many times have you worked with a client and noticed something that made you wonder about his or her health? How many times have you felt uncomfortable discussing it?

This class addresses the delicate art of communicating professionally and with open hearts when we have concerns about our clients’ well being. Key topics include…

   --Medications that may influence bodywork choices;

   --Visual or palpatory signs that are red flags;

   --Maintaining boundaries for client safety (how to say “no” when your client says “yes”)

Basic principles of active listening will be reviewed and employed as students break into small groups to role-play a variety of difficult client-therapist conversations, all based on real-life situations provided by past participants. Students will develop the skills to make responsible, professional, client-centered choices with their work—even when those clients may have diseases or conditions that make many types of massage impractical.
