Triaging Cyber Bullying: Protection, intervention & Prevention
Based on current literature as well as the most recently published works on cyber bullying, this workshop will describe a three part comprehensive, practical and effective approach to assessment and treatment – Protection, Intervention, and Prevention – and it will delineate specific strategies and tools to implement within each.  “Cyber bullies and situations are rarely being assessed or therapeutically addressed…Children and youth are taught their behavior is wrong, but their psychological needs go unmet.” (Trolley & Hanel, 2010).

29th Sierra Tucson Presents:

Grief In Recovery,

This presentation will look at grief as a prominent underlying issue in addiction which effects sobriety outcomes. We will discuss complicated, chronic, and delayed grief along with their impact on family systems and tolerance for grieving styles. The four gifts and the five written expressions of grief will be explained as a helpful tool in helping clients move through and heal from complicated grief.
Presented by: Gigi Veasey, LCSW, LISAC, CCBT


Addiction: Disease or Defect? And Medication Assisted Treatment

A presentation about the rethinking of addiction as a chronic brain disease rather

than as a strictly psychological or moral condition. Topics covered will include theories about the root causes of addiction, the influence of genetics on addiction, a discussion about brain anatomy, the brain's pleasure/reward system and how it can be 

hijacked by drugs and alcohol, how tolerance develops, why recovery is about more than just willpower. Also covered will be a presentation about medication assisted treatment in the management of substance use disorders, including a discussion about the ongoing reluctance by many clinicians and treatment centers to use medications.

EMDR Therapy: Applications to Your Clinical Practice

The purpose of this presentation is to help the general practitioner better understand EMDR therapy. The theory that underlies EMDR therapy can provide a useful framework for conceptualizing some clinical presentations in traditional talk therapy. The application of EMDR therapy itself requires considerable training, supervised practice and certification. There are some interventions that are used widely by EMDR and CBT therapists to help clients/patients strengthen their self-management skills that we will address.
