The Meadows is proud to be a co-sponsor of the 21st Annual Counseling Skills Conference, taking place September 24 – 26, 2015 in Dallas, Texas. The conference is hosted by U.S. Journal Training, Inc., and addresses the most relevant and cutting edge topics for today’s mental health, addiction, and helping professionals. Professionals who attend can earn up to 21 credit hours for continuing education.
The conference offers an up-to-date and comprehensive view of the interactions among trauma, addictive disorders and relationships, and allows participants to build skills in their areas of interest through a series of plenary sessions and in-depth workshops.
This year, three Meadows Senior Fellows and the Claudia Black Young Adult Center Clinical Director will be on hand to offer their insights through presentations and workshops:
• On Thursday, Claudia Black, MSW, PhD , will give a presentation on The Complexity of Treating the Young Adult and will conduct a workshop on The Family as The Client. And, Claudia Black Young Adult Center Clinical Director Leanne Lemire will offer a workshop on Honoring the Survivor Within.
• On Friday, Patrick Carnes, PhD, CAS, will address conference attendees with a presentation titled The Paradigm Crumbles: Science Struggles with Addiction, and will conduct a workshop called Heroes and Fame: Signifiers or Canaries in the Cage.
• On Saturday, John Bradshaw will give a presentation on Post-Romantic Stress Disorder and will conduct a workshop on Twelve Plus Experiences of Healthy Shame.
Conference attendees can also stop by our booth to learn more about our trauma, addiction, young adult, eating disorder, and outpatient programs.
