It's Not Us, It's Them:  How We Are Failing Men in Treatment
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Even though approximately 70 percent of the people that go through treatment annually are men, the majority of professionals have not been trained to work effectively with men or understand the impact of male socialization on all areas of service delivery. The traditional model for working with men was built around "breaking men down" and that paradigm continues to have a significant influence on the ways in which men are treated by programs and clinicians. Furthermore, men and women experience, respond to, exhibit the symptoms of, and recover from trauma differently. Therefore, the interventions and treatment services we provide to men must also be different. Client-centered treatment cannot mean avoiding the systemic impact of gender on our clients. Many treatment professionals may be unintentionally re-traumatizing male participants, thereby increasing their risk of failure in the program. This presentation offers practical guidance and tools for professionals working with men in navigating these challenging areas.

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.
