Upcoming Workshops, Webinars, and Short Courses
Infidelity and Its Discontents: The Sex Esteem Model in Clinical Practice with Individuals and Couples
This workshop will offer critical areas of inquiry couple therapists should have in their toolkit whether working with individuals or couples at various stages of infidelity.
Treating Trauma and Attachment Issues with Children and Parents Using Theraplay
This workshop will present the Theraplay model as an effective treatment for trauma and attachment issues with children and parents.
Multi-Cultural Considerations in Play Therapy
In this workshop, participants will discuss how to identify and respond to ethnic themes in the playroom, and how to initiate conversations about ethnic differences when the situation presents itself — examples of how transference and counter-transference from a personal perspective will be shared.
Healing Intergenerational Wounds: A Relational-Neurobiological Approach to Transform Family Relationships
In this workshop, Dr. Fishbane will explore ways to facilitate healing and dialogue in distressed relationships between adults and their families of origin, especially parents.
Working With Multiracial Couples: What Does Race Gotta Do With It?
As therapists committed to socially just practices, it is imperative to identify how racially charged dynamics show themselves and impact the day to day life of an interracial couple and build capacity to facilitate healing conversations. The presenters will use a video recording of a couple therapy session to demonstrate these ideas.
In this five hour workshop, participants will explore how their own reactions as professionals are informed by their cultural and family beliefs, their early experiences, and their desires and fears for parents and children.
Sex Therapy with Erotically Marginalized Clients: Nine Principles of Clinical Support
This workshop offers a day-long multimedia presentation with both small and larger group case consultation opportunities. There is an exploration of countertransferential clinical positions in working with erotically marginalized clients, and a critical investigation of how to best support clients who inhabit multiple intersecting identities of oppression.
