4 University of Wisconsin Madison Conference on Child Sexual Abuse Plenary Speakers Oct 26, 8:30-10am Healing the Mind, Healing the Body: Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma Janina Fisher, PhD Licensed clinical psychologist and instructor at the Trauma Center, an out-patient clinic and research center founded by Bessel van der Kolk, Brookline, MA In surviving trauma, individuals are left with a host of easily re-activated physiological responses and an inadequate memory record. Uncertain about what happened, they interpret the somatic activation as data about themselves: I am still not safe, I am worthless and unlovable. Divorced from the events that caused them, trauma-related dysregulation, overwhelming affects and sensations, intrusive images and memories, self-destructive impulses, chronic expectations of danger, and numbing and disconnection communicate somatically that the client is still in danger, that it is still not over. This presentation will review recent neuroscience research that explains how traumatic experience becomes embedded in both mind and body, extending the trauma far beyond the original events. New neurobiologically informed treatment techniques can address the non-verbal memories and physiological responses, offering renewed hope to victims of abuse. Oct 27, 8:30-10am The Essential Ingredients of Ethical Attunement in the Treatment of Complex Development Trauma Mary Jo Barrett, MSW Executive director, Center for Contextual Change; Skokie, Elmhurst, and Chicago An ethically attuned practitioner is present with their minds, their hearts, and their spirits. Our five energy domains emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and sensual are open, centered, and grounded from an engaged mindstate when we are attuned to self and other. Most of us come into this field with the desire to be helpful. When we succeed in being helpful, a positive feedback loop is reinforced: our minds are active and engaged, we have an experience of worthiness, and we know that our intentions and interventions were beneficial. When we are helpful our hearts remain open, we are engaged, and we have a sense of purpose. There are many times in working with interpersonal violence and in our personal lives, where we are challenged, leaving us feeling powerless, devalued, out of control, helpless, and hopeless. It is during these times when we lose our sense of attunement to our own needs and to the needs of our clients. 4 To register: go.wisc.edu/conference

5 We experience our own type of professional fight, flight, and/or freeze. Together we explore the essential ingredients necessary for us as professionals to identify when we have lost our sense of harmonious responsiveness and methods to recreate and maintain our centered minds, hearts, and spirits. Oct 27, Noon-1pm Cultural and Historical Traumas: The Invisible and Silent Barriers to Healing and Change Anita Mandley, MS, LPC Director, Adult Services and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Center for Contextual Change, Skokie, IL Therapists are trained to recognize and address many areas of trauma, such as violence and abuse. What are rarely addressed are the issues of cultural and historical trauma and how their legacies impact the brains, bodies, and minds of our clients. This workshop explores the presence and power of cultural and historical traumas, both in the clients and in therapists. These experiences shape the ways in which clients see themselves, the patterns of connection to others and the world, and their participation in the therapeutic process. This workshop addresses the social realities of culture, identity, and social context to enhance the conceptualization of trauma, strengthen the therapeutic alliance, and effectively move towards more holistic outcomes of healing and change. Laura Brown quotes her Native American client as saying, If you pretend not to see my color, then you do not see me, and for sure you do not see how I see you. This quote makes the case beautifully for the need for cultural competence; if we don t see our clients and don t see how they see us, our effectiveness as therapists and the sacred work of healer are compromised significantly. This highly respected conference offers you the latest and best information to help the people in your care. Workshop descriptions at: go.wisc.edu/conference 5

12 University of Wisconsin Madison Conference on Child Sexual Abuse Oct 28, Wednesday 9am-4pm Post-Conference Institutes G1-G5 Institute G1 Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents John Briere, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and psychology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California; director, USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC-ATTC), National Child Traumatic Stress Network Cheryl Lanktree, PhD, Research assistant professor, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California; project director, University of Southern California Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC-ATTC), National Child Traumatic Stress Network This presentation provides an overview of Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A). ITCT-A is an evidence-based treatment that assists clinicians in the evaluation and treatment of adolescents who have experienced multiple forms of psychological trauma, often in the context of negative living conditions such as poverty, deprivation, and social discrimination. The core components of ITCT-A include: assessment-driven treatment; attention to complex trauma issues; focus on culturally appropriate interventions; use of multiple treatment modalities; relational processing of early attachment schema and current interpersonal expectations; skills development; therapeutic exposure and exploration of trauma; and advocacy and interventions at the system level. Institute G2 NEW Understanding and Treating Self-Injury: Once an Obscure Psychiatric Symptom, Now an Alarming Mainstream Problem Wendy Lader, PhD, Med CEO of Mending Fences, a residential substance abuse program; co-founder and clinical director of the S.A.F.E. (Self Abuse Finally Ends) ALTERNATIVES Program In the past decade, self-injury has grown from an obscure psychiatric symptom to a mainstream problem. Clinicians, educators, and medical and criminal justice professionals frequently feel unprepared to work with teens and adults who engage in self-directed violence. It is important for these providers to better understand etiology, treatment protocols, and management and utilization of one s own emotional reaction to the behavior. This workshop challenges some of your concepts about self-injurers, traditional treatment methods, and counter-transference reactions. Therapeutic strategies and treatment modalities, including the impulse control log, are presented. I have not seen this amount of information on child sexual abuse in one conference. This conference was very helpful and informative. 12 To register: go.wisc.edu/conference

13 Institute G4 NEW Translating Neurobiology for Clinical Practice in the Treatment of Complex Trauma Geraldine Crisci, MSW, Geraldine Crisci & Associates Counseling, Consultation, and Training, Toronto Approximately one-third of offenders are themselves juveniles. Crimes Against Children Research Center Institute G3 NEW Innovative Techniques for Treating Traumatized Children and Youth Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S Child and family therapist and clinical consultant, Toronto There have been a number of treatments developed and tested in recent years specifically geared to treating traumatized children. These approaches share many of the same core components: engaging clients; conducting a systemic assessment; providing psychoeducation; addressing children and families traumatic stress reactions; enhancing emotional regulation; facilitating adaptive coping; completing and processing a trauma narrative; enhancing safety skills; and strengthening parenting skills. The effectiveness of trauma treatment with children is enhanced by integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions so clients will engage in treatment. This workshop presents innovative play therapy techniques for each of the core components of evidence-based trauma treatment. Come away with many new and creative interventions to use with clients from preschoolers to teens. Achievements in the science of neurobiology over the past decade hold profound implications for the treatment of complex trauma. Breakthroughs have also assisted in the understanding of why some kids get stuck, leaving caregivers and therapists frustrated and perplexed on where to go from here. Changes in the lens through which we view children, the expectations we have of their behavior, and the approach we use all allow for effective, growth-producing intervention. The veil of mystery regarding what works and why is lifted. While many practitioners have been exposed to the language, few have had opportunity to think through and learn the specific strategies that result in change for children. Approaches to working with children who have been raised in chaotic, unpredictable, and violent homes will be addressed. Institute G5 NEW The Offending Narrative: How Sex Offenders Think and How They Get into the Minds of Victims Anna Salter, PhD, psychologist, Dept of Corrections, Madison, WI Much of the harm that is done by sexual abuse has to do with the way offenders impact victims cognitively and emotionally. For their own reasons, offenders hold certain beliefs about offending, which serve to minimize and deny responsibility of the impact of their actions. When victims have a trauma bond with the offender, they are subject to internalizing the beliefs of offenders. This workshop explores the issues of trauma bonds, cognitive distortions in offenders, and methods by which such distortions are transmitted to and internalized by victims.
