Webinar (Live) - Foundations of Disability Informed Practice

The disability community is the largest systemically oppressed group in the United States, yet continues to be one of the most underrepresented, under-supported, and underserved groups in the country. Education and training regarding disability are typically treated as narrowly specialized rather than centrally relevant, and this has led to a severe lack of qualified mental health clinicians with knowledge and expertise in disability, let alone clinicians with even foundational comfort with the topic. On a systems level, we see a severe divide between disability services and mental health services, creating gaps in support for many who require interaction with both service sectors for survival. This separation also supports the false idea that mental health and disability are exclusive to one another, ignoring the historical and theoretical connections between the two. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and its disabling effects on ourselves, our clients, and our communities, prioritizing disability-informed clinical education becomes crucial not only to meet the needs of those we serve but to our responsibility to continue to effectively evaluate, improve, and advocate our systems. To fulfill this gap in clinical education, this program aims to provide participants with general and introductory knowledge on disability, accessibility, and modifications for disability-informed therapy practice while addressing implicit biases related to ability. This training would take place over three weeks in 2-hour weekly sessions. Program Dates: Wednesday, October 5, 2022: 9am- 11am Wednesday, October 12, 2022: 9am- 11am Wednesday, October 19, 2022: 9am- 11am
Audience - This program is beneficial for any licensed mental health practitioner looking to develop general and introductory knowledge on disability, accessibility, and modifications for disability-informed therapy practice.

The aim of the intervention is to help the client and clinician partner to address barriers and concerns the client may have related to entering treatment for psychiatric illnesses. This intervention has been tested in diverse populations of pregnant women, pregnant adolescents, and older adults presenting with mood, anxiety and trauma related disorders. It has been shown to increase initial engagement as well as retention and completion of brief mental health services.

Webinar (Live) Child Maltreatment Reporting and The Ethical Use of Professional Discretion

In North Carolina, “Any person or institution who has cause to suspect” is considered a mandated reporter of child abuse, neglect and dependency. Professionals working with families have a unique role in this regard, in that the family may already be seeking our help, many times for the very issues we are required to report about them. Issues of trust and maintaining the therapeutic relationship must be factored into decisions to access the ethically and legally approved breaks with confidentiality. The child welfare and law enforcement systems that respond to these reports can be confusing to navigate, at best, especially when the professional is not familiar with the frames of reference and sometimes competing priorities of these systems. In order to support children and families and address immediate safety issues, it is important that the professional understand aspects of the child welfare system and the legal system with regard to reporting and the costs and benefits of involving each of those systems. This session will examine the NC Juvenile Code and the sections of the North Carolina Criminal Law that apply to juveniles, demonstrate the flow of response once a report is made to the Department of Social Services, and will examine the often overlooked gaps in mandated reporting.
Audience - Mental health, substance use and health and human service professionals.

Webinar (Live) Moving Beyond the ACE Score: Treating Adversity in Diverse Populations

We all know the importance of assessing childhood adversity, due to its impact on short and long-term outcomes. In this workshop, clinicians will examine the importance of moving beyond the ACE score to account more fully for the adverse experiences of diverse populations. Research shows that there are factors beyond exposure to specific traumatic events that can impact client’s mental health and daily functioning. These factors are particularly important to consider with diverse and marginalized populations, given their disproportional exposure to trauma and race-related stress. This workshop will help clinicians to have a fuller understanding of the impact of historical and intergenerational trauma. You will be introduced to tools for assessing adversity in diverse populations and will learn how cultural factors can promote resilience and mediate the impact of adversity. We will share examples of how cultural healing approaches can be weaved into treatment, and data on how doing so improves outcomes.

Webinar (Live) Diversity in Neurodivergence: Girls and Women with Autism

This dynamic, 2-hour workshop provides participants with an overview of autism in girls and women, including an introduction to the neurodiversity paradigm and identity-first language. Common overviews of autism state that the neurodevelopmental disability occurs four times more often in boys; however, this is based on incomplete research evidence that does not consider different ways that girls can display autism symptoms. In-depth research across the lifespan considers historical diagnostic bias towards boys, which informed current autism criteria and behavioral manifestations. This newer knowledge reveals that girls and women are often diagnosed later in life than their male counterparts. This workshop introduces autism from a feminist, strengths-based neurodiversity perspective and explores historical points of view on autism and gender. An in-depth look into the Female Autism Phenotype theory explains why girls and women with autism often go unrecognized and the consequences of under-diagnosis. Together, participants will discuss successes and challenges in their fields and collaborate on methods to improve gender-competent care for individuals with autism.
Audience - This program is intended for professionals, students, self-advocates, and parents across the field of developmental disabilities who want a broader understanding of autism in women and girls.

Webinar (Live) - Responding to Family Violence: Evidence-Based Approaches for Practice

Family violence is likely one of the most common, and yet challenging, issues that clinicians encounter. Mental health and substance abuse issues highly co-occur with trauma-related experiences and interpersonal violence histories. Regardless of the setting in which they work, clinicians must have a working knowledge of the foundations of trauma and interpersonal violence and tools to effectively assess and treat individuals. Additionally, competency in differential diagnosis, evidence- based models of treatment, and applying treatment in a trauma-informed, culturally competent framework is needed. This program will provide information and tools to understand, assess, and treat problems related to family violence from a trauma-informed perspective.
Audience - This workshop will be beneficial to mental health and substance abuse professionals, including psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, licensed professional counselors and substance abuse counselors.

Webinar (Recorded): NC Child Treatment Program: Advanced Training – TF-CBT with Young Children

** Webcast ** This is a continuation program established in 2006 which serves community-based mental health professionals across North Carolina. Based on initial needs assessment and subsequent training requests from around the state, NC CTP seeks to address the gap between researched best practice and community-based services in mental health for children and families. Through a learning collaborative training approach, NC CTP simultaneously provides clinical training to participating clinicians and addresses organizational supports necessary for evidence-based trauma services through inclusion of agency Senior Leaders and establishing linkage to key community stakeholders. NC CTP’s faculty is comprised of nationally-known leaders in implementation; they are recognized clinical experts who draw upon peer-reviewed, current literature in best practice and clinical fidelity. Outcomes include skill acquisition for trainee clinicians, organizational change and improvements, and improved clinical outcomes for children and families across the state. Clinicians who graduate from this program have provided TF-CBT with fidelity to at least two traumatized children, but fewer than 10% of them provide the model to preschoolers, as this is considered a population requiring a specialized skill set. In this advanced training, NC CTP proposes to provide these advanced TF-CBT skills to NC CTP graduate clinicians.
