Upcoming Workshops, Webinars, and Short Courses
From Placement Through Adoption: Attachment Bonds, Loyalty Binds, and Questions of Identity
In this workshop, members of Ackerman’s Foster Care and Adoption Project (FCAP) will present an approach to working with families involved in various stages of the foster care system and adoption, highlighting strategies to help foster parents, adoptive parents, birth parents, and caseworkers relieve children of relational dilemmas and the behavior problems that result from such binds.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Couples
This workshop will teach how to adapt cognitive behavior therapy to the treatment of couples. Therapists will learn how to conceptualize common relationship difficulties in the context of the cognitive model and how to navigate the complex interaction of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that transpire within romantic partnerships.
Family Therapy with Young Adults with Serious Mental Illness
Using cases and research from evidence-based and systemic-relational therapies, this workshop will demonstrate how therapists can help family members regain a sense of control, connection, and calm in the face of an emerging mental illness.
Healing the Healer: The Restorative Power of Mindfulness, Compassion, and Therapist’s Use-of-Self
This workshop integrates the spirit of these two passages to create a day-long experiential and reflective healing space for therapists working within cultural contexts rife with personal and collective traumas of systemic oppression and colonization in the United States.
