6th Annual Clinical Practice Symposium: The Nuts and Bolts of Working with PTSD, Depression, and Micro-Aggressions with Minority Clients Through the Lenses of CBT, ACT & FAP

Friday, March 20, 12:30 - 2:30 PM

Description:

This year the 6th annual clinical symposium features a panel of expert clinicians demonstrating key assessments and interventions with an adult LGBTQ client struggling with complex trauma, depression and history of micro-aggressions.

Our panel of experts will demonstrate “hands on” interventions to assess and deliver interventions based on different theoretical models: Functional Analytical Psychotherapy (FAP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) in a culturally sensitive manner.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate culturally sensitive assessment and interventions when working with LGBTQ clients affected by trauma, depression, and micro-aggressions.
  • Apply different treatment interventions for an adult client struggling with complex trauma, depression and history of micro-aggressions.
  • Distinguish the similarities and differences between Functional Analytical Psychotherapy (FAP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) when working with trauma.
