Yardage from the Back Tees, 6756 Yards, Rating 74.1, Slope 140 Yardage from the Red Tees, 5005 Yards, Rating 68.9, Slope 120 PRE-SYMPOSIUM Thursday, June 2 8:30 am 5:30 pm All-Day #100 Ethical Reasoning in the Practice o Addiction Counseling Jim Seckman, MAC, CACII, CCS Supported by MARR This course is designed to give counselors an understanding of the foundational elements of ethical reasoning and ethical decision-making, the framework they use as counselors for making decisions, and how professional boundaries affect ethical decision-making. During the first half of the course, participants will get a review of how to approach ethics, dimensions of ethical reasoning and methodological factors for making ethical decisions. Participants will be able to determine their primary approach to making ethical decisions (e.g. Rules, Common Good, Situation, etc) and gain an appreciation of the different approaches based on experience, culture and values. During the second half of the course we will review how boundaries are critical for the development and implementation of ethical practice as well as a review of selected Standards with an emphasis on understanding each principle and how to utilize them as a framework for application in the practice of addiction counseling. Counselors will learn how to interpret and cross-reference the principles in order to approach situations more effectively. Finally, participants will learn that ethics and ethical decision-making is not merely a matter of memorizing the codes, but understanding their personal ethical style and how to apply the Standards in their work. WCSAD Program Goals O ecti es Goals - to increase participants awareness, knowledge and skills related to effective substance use or abuse prevention, treatment and recovery, program administration and system development. Objectives - participants will be able to: apply clinical skills from a broad range of professional core functions including assessment, therapeutic approaches; cite advances in the addiction field resulting from research and practice innovations; and discuss key issues such as cultural diversity, gender issues, sexual orientation and agespecific differences in relation to clinician/client interaction. 5

7 #101 The Gerwe Orchestration Method (G-OM): Treating Core Origin and Relationship Issues (CORI) Dr. Corinne Francis Gerwe, PhD, LCAS, ICAADC G-OM was designed to address early intense experiences that have led to maladaptive patterns of behavior. Such experiences may be associated with addictions, relationship difficulties, and other behavioral problems. Unresolved past issues may also involve current levels of emotional distress and impairments with the quality of life. Empirical evidence supports the existence of several CORI (Core Origin and Relationship Issues) constructs, such as a dysfunctional family of origin and interpersonal relationships, often associated with the concept of co-dependence. Problems in these areas, when combined current elevated levels of negative emotions and dissatisfactions, are likely to precipitate relapse in newly recovering individuals and/or detract from the quality of life for those not affected by addictions. #102 Understanding the Impact o Addiction and Supporting Reco ery: Strategies and Tools or Clergy and Other Congregational Leaders - NO PSYCH CREDIT Rev Douglas M. Ronsheim, LMFT, DMin & Steve Hornberger, MSW Supported in part by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors Alcohol and drug problems interfere with the capacity of addicted individuals and their family members to develop and sustain a meaningful spiritual life. Clergy and other pastoral ministers have a wide array of opportunities to address these problems and lead hurting families to recovery support and healing. This workshop is a unique opportunity for clergy and congregational leaders to receive the latest information, resources and strategies on how to educate and provide hope to individuals and families suffering from the impact of addiction to alcohol and substance abuse. #103 The ARISE Inter ention: Engaging Adolescent and Young Adult Su stance A users and their Families In Treatment and Long-Term Reco ery Judith Landau, MD, DPM, LMFT, CAI, BRI II & Heather Hayes, MEd, LPC, CAI, BRI II Supported by Linking Human Systems Though family involvement in addiction recovery is widely regarded as essential, most intervention or treatment approaches only engage the family briefly, isolating the addicted individual s recovery process from its context within the family. In contrast, long-term family healing and involvement is the foundation of the Evidence-Based, Best Practice ARISE Intervention and Continuum of Care. When working with adolescent and young adult substance abusers (a particularly vulnerable population) effective family involvement is of even greater importance. ARISE is invitational, non-secretive, and cost effective. It builds on family s strength and resilience while protecting and enhancing the long-term nature of family relationships. The process, which can be initiated by anyone concerned for a loved one s well being, mobilizes the family and support system for a minimum of 6-months with the goals of family healing and preventing the transference of addiction to future generations. The ARISE principles and protocol, to be presented in this session, are applicable to substance abuse and other behavioral compulsions, chronic or life-threatening physical and mental illness, and complex dual-diagnosis or multi-problem families. Results of a National Institute on Drug Abuse study and its real world replication showed that ARISE succeeds in engaging 84% of individuals in treatment. Subsequent studies resulted in sobriety rates of 61% at 1 year with another 10% improved as well as an AMA rate below 2%. During this workshop participants have the opportunity to practice some of the basic components of the method and to become comfortable with the front end of the ARISE Continuum of Care, the First Call, to coach the First Caller to mobilize the family to motivate the substance abuser to enter treatment. Didactic and experiential techniques will be used along with real case study vignettes. Handouts will include a list of peer-reviewed published papers on the method.

9 # 201 Screening, Brie Inter ention and Re erral to Treatment (SBIRT) and ASAM or EAPs/LAPs Gerald Shulman, MA, MAC, FACATA Sponsored by Treatment Solutions Network SBIRT is the acronym for Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment, a SAHHSA evidencedbased practice that helps determine the type of intervention required by an individual who may have a substance use problem. An assessment (and there are many) can determine whether the employee or dependent simply needs Brief Intervention, education usually involving 1-3 sessions delivered by the EAP; Brief Treatment which consists or a more thorough assessment, education, Motivational Interviewing, problem solving, etc., which can be provide by the EAP or a third party and usually consists of 3 8 sessions; or referral to treatment which in some cases might be provided by the EAP but more usually is provided by a third party. When it comes to referral for treatment the challenge for the EAP is providing both the right type of treatment in the right level of care. It is at this point that the ASAM Criteria helps the EAP make those decisions as well as decisions about their employee s treatment for continued stay and transfer, usually to a less intensive level of care, or discharge. This training can assist the EAP in appropriately responding to the entire range of substance problems in their employees from least severe but with more potential for harm to self, other employees and the company to those with the most severe disorders; optimally determine employees clinical needs and if formal treatment is required, best identify and type and intensity of treatment; and act as an advocate for their employees and dependent s treatment needs and a steward of the company s financial resources. 8:30 AM 10:00 AM Friday Morning Plenary #210 Through a Child s Eyes Jerry Moe, MA Supported by the Betty Ford Center Level of Instruction: Intermediate Kids have a unique perspective in viewing the world. While it s long been held that alcoholism and other drug addiction are a family disease, there are few opportunities for young children to be an integral part of the treatment and recovery process. Come learn about how children see addiction in their families. More importantly, witness how they embrace the healing process. There is much hope when we treat the whole family. 10:00 10:45 AM Morning Break in the Exhibit Hall Hosted by C4 Recovery Solutions 10:45 AM 5:30 PM 3/4 Day Workshop #215 A stinence Based Practice Theory in Addiction Medicine Burns Brady, MD, Lloyd J. Gordon, III, MD, FASAM, & Robert W. Mooney, MD, Al J. Mooney, MD Supported by Willingway Hospital & COPAC This unique workshop is specifically designed to appeal to Addiction Medicine professionals, counselors, therapists, social workers and others who have an interest in abstinence focused approach to addiction treatment. The content will include a series of presentations by physicians who have years of experience in pharmacological interactions in the various stages of addiction recovery. A concluding presenter panel will give the participants the opportunity to engage in a direct frank discussion of the topics and implications in an increasingly challenging field. The individual topics to be addressed are: Medication Kindling- When Prescribing Meets Compulsion - Robert W. Mooney, MD A discussion involving the idea that exposure to low dose centrally acting substances can provide a trigger for high risk relapse behavior Experiencing Evidence Based Addiction Practice - Lloyd J. Gordon, III, MD, FASAM Dr. Gordon will discuss the steps necessary for changing behaviors and hence neural pathways to recover from substance dependence. He will share his experience from pragmatic and empiric on site studies to determine outcomes in substance dependent patients who have been tried on stimulants for ADHD and opiates +/- suboxone for their dependencies. Different age and socioeconomic groups are discussed and elucidating which ones respond and which ones do not respond. Theoretical explanations will be presented based on what we know 8

10 schedule of events about neural pathways and addiction. Neuroplasticity - Finding a Place for Abstinence - Al J. Mooney, MD This session will orient the participant to the science of brain plasticity and its application to addiction medicine. History, categorization, background science, and clinical implications will be addressed. Correlation with abstinence oriented recovery will be discussed. Sobells to Suboxone- When Science is Not Enough - Burns Brady, MD, ASAM, FASAM, ABFP, FAAFP A discussion of treatment attempts over the years that have jeopardized recovery for substance use disordered patients. Many of these attempts have been, and still are, presented as good science. 10:45 AM 12:15 PM Mid Morning Workshops #225 The Great Escape - Female Compulsi e Gam lers Coleen Moore, MA, LCPC, CSADC, CCGC, MISA II, SAP Co-Supported by Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery Level of Instruction: Intermediate This workshop will examine the unique features of the female escape gambler and discuss treatment strategies to address special needs. Participants will investigate what women seek and receive when gambling, and discuss current trends specific to female gamblers. Co-morbidity inherent with female escape gamblers will also be discussed and evaluated. #226 Altering Traditional Adult Chemical Dependency Treatment to meet Young Adult Treatment needs at the Betty Ford Center Mark Baumgartner, MEd, LPC, & Gisela Ghaemi, MA, EdD Supported by Betty Ford Center The presentation outlines how the Betty Ford Center has altered its traditional treatment program to meet the different needs of financially dependent young adults. Consideration of research on young adult brain development has indicated young adults have different treatment needs. How young adult treatment needs such as engagement in activities with perceived risk and decreased impulse control has influenced program design at Betty Ford is reviewed. The importance of addressing unresolved trauma during childhood and/or as a result of active addiction is discussed. The urgency of parental involvement and consideration of the family lifecycle is reviewed. In particular the importance of planning for long term post treatment living arrangements and productivity towards self sufficiency with accountability is essential during primary treatment. The differences of program structure and the supervision needs of young adults, along with the associated privileges and responsibilities throughout different stages of treatment, will be outlined. The challenge of integrating young adult treatment programming within in a larger traditional adult treatment milieu is discussed. This includes consideration of supporting staff through education and supervision.

11 #227 Grounded in the Present: Bene its o Mind ulness-based Practices or Those in Helping Pro essions Robin Rettmer, LISAC & Mary Stanton, MEd, LADAC Supported by Amity Foundation We live in a world of increasing alienation, disconnection, and fragmentation. Those in the helping professions bear witness to the pain of others day after day, and at times feel underappreciated and overwhelmed. This has been referred to as burnout, compassionate fatigue, and vicarious trauma. Professional self-care is of utmost importance when coping with accumulated exposure to trauma, violence, addiction, and psychological disorders, and the devastating effects on individuals, families, and communities. Mindfulness techniques improve our ability to separate our own issues, thoughts, and emotions from those of the other person. Being aware of who we are and where we are coming from will help us not to be reactive and to do this appropriately. The union of a personal practice of mindfulness and whole person, trauma sensitive curriculum effectively creates the safe, healing environment necessary for individuals to explore the reality of their experiences. This experiential presentation will provide practice in mindfulness techniques which improve present moment focus, increase awareness, and deepen kindness and compassion toward ourselves and others. We will provide examples, practice, and discussion on methods of developing a personal practice of mindfulness and bringing non-judgmental, intentional, and empathic responses into a therapeutic setting. Participants will recognize the personal and collective transformation that is possible through the development and implementation of mindfulness-based practices. Participants will explore ways that mindfulness principles improve outcomes by strengthening the therapeutic alliance and improving self-care for those in helping professions. #228 Yoga o Reco ery: Modern Addiction Medicine and Ancient Wisdom Durga Leela, BA, Clinical Ayurvedic and Pancha Karma Specialist, RYT-500, Yoga Acharya Supported by Yoga of Recovery This session will provide practitioners, students and individuals with the information necessary to consider a fully integrative East-West model of addiction treatment that includes self-understanding of why we behave the way we do and how to elevate that same nature to realization of individual human potential rather than constantly abstaining, depriving, fighting against our addictive tendencies. Through uniting the approaches in Western modern biomedicine of counseling and 12-step methodology with the comprehensive Yogic and Ayurvedic understanding of physiological, psychological and spiritual causes of disease and tools to create complete balance of body, mind and spirit, addiction can be holistically addressed. Integrating yoga practice, psychology and philosophy, and 12-step methodology with Ayurvedic techniques of detoxification, rejuvenation and lifestyle support provide a comprehensive approach facilitating initial recovery and maintaining health and wellness in long-term sobriety. #229 Achie ing Better Outcomes with the Support o We Based Client Management Systems David Abrams, CDIA+ & Bob Lynn, MEd Supported by Caseworks Web & C4 Recovery Solutions What is client driven care and why is this important in relation to enhancing outcomes? How may client driven treatment systems be developed that utilize electronic processes to track and manage data? Your organization can obtain internal quality improvement with regard to staff performance, manage compliance requirements, and better utilize finite resources through the use of an EHR system. In the addictions field outcomes mean different things to different people. We will start with a description of outcomes to frame our discussion and proceed with a history of the field in order to underscore the need for outcomes and real time data management with an electronic system. Attendees will be exposed to concepts such as the benefits of automated workflow, authorization tracking and client chart management. Reporting tools may be used to measure program effectiveness both internally and externally. A discussion of stimulus reimbursement by demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health records in compliance with the HITECH Act will help Providers understand requirements and potential funding available to offset the cost of adopting a certified health IT system where applicable. 10

12 schedule of events #230 It Takes a Village: The Complicated Nature o Treating Eating Disorders Steven Karp, DO, FACN, Caryn Attianese, MA, LPC, NBCC, Lee Neagle, MA, Cindy Elms, RD A session of The Rosewood Institute Supported by Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders Eating disorders may be the deadliest psychiatric illness and are often co-occurring with addiction disorders. This comprehensive presentation will review similarities and differences between eating disorders and addictions, allowing beginning to advanced practitioners to gain useful clinical skills. Treating these illnesses simultaneously requires a village approach to therapy including: mental health care professionals, dieticians, doctors, psychiatrists, family members and interventionists. Eating disorder case presentations will illustrate signs and symptoms, medical complications, the role of genetics, factors related to co-occurring addictions and mental illness, cognitive impairment when malnourished, medication options, possible causes, and family related issues. Presented by a psychiatrist and registered dietician with twenty five years of experience working in eating disorders and addictions, participants will learn a holistic treatment approach with practical applications relevant to this population. #231 Palliati e Care and Terminal Pain Anthony, Dekker, DO Supported by the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine Level of Instruction: Intermediate/Advanced This program will review the process of patient assessment for terminal and palliative care. The goal to diminish suffering and maintain function is a critical balance in palliative care. The program will distinguish the treatment of terminally ill vs. the care of chronic pain patients. #232 Reco ery Coaching: A New Tool to Ssupport your Client s Reco ery Linda Landon, ACC Supported by Linda Landon & Associates Recovery Coaching is emerging as viable support for clients in addiction recovery transitioning back to normal life. In this workshop participants will be introduced to Recovery Coaching and how it can complement the continuum of care. We will review the history of coaching, how Recovery Coaching evolved, and what kind of training is required. We will also examine the differences between coaching, therapy, and sponsorship as well as clarify what distinguishes Recovery Coaching from sober coaching and sober companions. Participants will learn how to determine client readiness for coaching, and have a personal experience of coaching in action. Linda Landon, ACC, is an ICF credentialed Business Coach, trained Recovery Coach, Certified Speaking Circles facilitator, Four Agreements master trainer, Vistage executive trainer, professional speaker, and author. She is president of Linda Landon & Associates, an international coaching and training company, and author of The Power of Pause: simple meditations for complicated lives. Her passion is supporting business professionals in recovery to create a fulfilling and joyful sober life. 12:15 PM 1:45 PM Roundtable Luncheon Plenary (Cost $15) 11

13 #250 Mentoring Luncheon Hosted in part by C4 Recovery Solutions C4 Recovery Solutions has been concerned by the ever growing age gap in the treatment field, as fewer young people have been entering the addiction field. Sometime in the not too distant future, the field will face a very real crisis with a critical shortage in the number of practitioners available to treat the sick and suffering. In addition, many amongst the few young clinicians and administrators in the field have communicated to C4 a strong need for mentoring relationships in the areas of policy, research, and clinical training. There is a very real sense that there is no viable knowledge transfer process between the current and emerging generations of treatment professionals. C4 is excited to announce that we will be convening our first Mentoring Luncheon. The lunch is the first in a series of C4 sponsored events that will give young addiction professionals the opportunity to interact in a small intimate setting with proven leaders in the field. There will be 10 tables of 11 which will each have a subject expert in areas as diverse as policy to women s treatment to client satisfaction, to cutting edge research. Topics and presenters are listed below for each table and on a first come first serve basis. C4 is underwriting most of the cost for the event, but there will be a $15 cost for the lunch. It is suggested that only those 35 or under or with 10 years or less in the field register, as well as those who are currently mentoring professionals and practitioners under 35 who wish to expand their mentoring networks. Potential participants who do not meet the age criteria but wish to attend may select waiting list to be notified of availability.

15 #252 Separating the Men rom the Boys: Real Treatment or Real Men Dan Griffin, MA & Rick Dauer, LADC Supported by Griffin Recovery Enterprises This presentation focuses on a new and innovative treatment program, Helping Men Recover: A Program for Treating Addiction. The presenters have developed, with Dr. Stephanie Covington, the first genderresponsive and trauma-informed treatment curriculum for men. This curriculum addresses what is often missing in prevailing treatment models for men: a clear understanding of the impact of male socialization on the recovery process, a consideration of the relational needs of men, and a focus on the issues of abuse and trauma. Existing models often provide little direction in helping men to establish a healthy sense of self outside of stereotypical masculine scripts. In contrast, this is one of the primary goals of Helping Men Recover. This new framework for men s treatment integrates a theory of addiction, a theory of trauma, and a theory of male psychosocial development. The presentation incorporates the latest research on trauma-informed practices as well as relational cultural theory to help attendees understand the theoretical framework for this unique treatment approach. The presentation highlights some of the strengths and deficits of current treatment modalities and identifies core issue to pay attention to when working with men. Attendees will go through some of the exercises from the forthcoming curriculum, in order to experience, for themselves, this unique approach to treatment specifically for men. Preliminary outcome data from the pilot groups that have been running since September 2009 is also discussed. #253 Pain and Addiction Stephen A. Wyatt, DO Supported by the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine Level of Instruction: Intermediate/Advanced The identification and treatment of pain has been an important aspect of medical care for centuries. The identification of unnecessary suffering and medical complications secondary to untreated pain have placed an even greater focus on it in recent years. Unfortunately with the advent of more frequently prescribed, novel, high potency opioids there has been a profound increase in access of these medication. This has resulted in more abuse and dependence along with an increase in associated morbidity and mortality. A description of patient centered pain management will be presented identifying how this concept will help to treat the patient not just the pain. This talk will describe some of the pathophysiology of pain and how some alternative pain medications work. There will be a review of the hallmarks for identifying and monitoring the patient at risk of opioid abuse/dependence. Lastly exit strategies available to help these patients once the problem has been identified will be described. 14

16 schedule of events 1:45 PM 3:15 PM Early Afternoon Workshops #260 Timing is E erything: Stages o Change and Action Methods Jean M. Campbell, LCSW, CET III, TEP Supported by the Visions Adolescent Treatment According to Prochaska, Norcross and DiClemente s 6-stage model of change, when we follow the timing of our clients and offer stage-sensitive interventions, we maximize their ability to move along the change continuum towards recovery. In this didactic and experiential workshop, we will explore how action methods can complement this change model. #261 Weight Loss Surgery: From O esity to Alcoholism? Thomas J. Brady, MD, MBA & Asa J. DeMatteo, PhD Obesity rates in the country are growing. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, of the approximately 224,000,000 people age 20 and over in the United States: 34.4% are overweight (Body Mass Index [BMI] 25 to 29.9), 19.6% are obese but not usually candidates for weight loss surgery [WLS] (BMI 30 to 34.9), 8.6% are obese and possible candidates for [WLS] (BMI 35 to 39.9), 5.7% are morbidly obese (BMI 40 or greater) and candidates for WLS. That means that 68.3% (152,992,000) are either overweight or obese, and 32,000,000 are potential WLS candidates. That s an epidemic. Beginning around 1999, anecdotal reports of an increase in alcohol abuse among post-operative WLS patients began to appear, culminating in a 2006 program on the Oprah show Suddenly Skinny, where several WLS patients revealed their new addictions. Starting with the position that WLS candidates are food addicts, experts explained the sudden appearance of new addictions as substitutes for the former addiction to overeating. In the years following, however, actual data have appeared indicating that alcohol absorption and metabolism and effects are substantially affected by weight loss surgery. Specifically, for post-surgical patients, alcohol is absorbed more quickly, blood alcohol levels increase more rapidly and with less alcohol intake, and levels take longer to decrease when compared to non-surgical controls. These findings suggest that post-surgical alcohol addiction is not a simple substitute addiction, but a novel, iatrogenic disorder. #262 Shamanic Healing: A Non Traditional Path o Healing - NO PSYCH CREDIT Jeanie Griffin, Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master, LPC, MFT, LCDC Supported by Origins Recovery Centers Those with addictive disease are on a spiritual journey. They simply have gone to the wrong address. At one time the 12 steps was a non-traditional spiritual solution to addictive illness but today referring clients to AA has become standard. As consciousness expands, more non traditional forms of spiritual healing are being sought and are proving useful to a client s well being. Shamanic healing, a once ancient form of healing, has re-emerged with practical application for today s world. From a shamanic point of view, all healing has a spiritual dimension. Illness from a shamanic view is classified as 4 spiritual problems: 1) power loss, 2) soul loss, 3) misplaced energies or spiritual intrusions and/ or 4) a possessing spirit. In this workshop, the 4 forms of shamanic illness will be described, the shamanic healing for each of the 4 will be explained and examples of case studies being reviewed. Demonstrations may be conducted if time permits and resources will be identified. *This workshop is not intended to train attendees to be shamanic practitioners. Rather it is expose attendees to shamanic healing as a possible resource for client care and where to find shamanic practitioners. #263 EEG Bio eed ack and the Treatment o High Risk, Relapse Vulnera le Addicted Clients Shari Stillman-Corbitt, PsyD Supported by Promises Treatment Centers Level of Instruction: Basic This workshop will look at the ways in which EEG Biofeedback (neurofeedback) support a greater degree of engagement in residential treatment for individuals with substance use disorders and comorbid affective disorders. The basics of applied neurofeedback are described in a manner that is understandable and applicable for the clinician not generally involved in neuroscience. Relevancy of these modalities to 12 step recovery is prominent in this discussion. Specific emphasis will be placed on high risk patients vulnerable to discharging from treatment prematurely (ATA) and the way in which EEG Biofeedback intervenes in that process. 15

17 #264 Is Food an Addiction? Cindy Elms, RD A session of The Rosewood Institute Supported by Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders When food is both the medicine and the fix, how can recovery happen? Interrupting eating disorder behaviors while also integrating weight restoration, meal planning and resolution of problem eating patterns is a life saving challenge. Many people with eating disorders attempt to control these issues on their own before they seek professional help. By the time they get to a dietician, a person s meal plan is limited in food choices and their mind is rigid with rules. Empathic curiosity and attunement to the client s readiness for change; an eating disorder dietician explores erroneous food beliefs as a means of unraveling the connection between food and addiction. The dietician using this approach will present methods for the client with an eating disorder to meet their nutritional needs in a manner they can tolerate long enough to prove effectiveness and safety. Because there is no right way, and each client s recovery is unique, an individualized nutrition approach normalizes a meal plan with a wide variety of food choices. Case presentations will illustrate many nutritional aspects of eating disorder treatment including the use of food challenges to magnify eating disorder rituals, client progress based on nutrition restoration, solutions to problem eating patterns, and situations where the client may require a feeding tube. Beginning to advanced practitioners will learn skills and tools to integrate into any therapeutic setting. 3:15 4:00 PM Afternoon Break in the Exhibit Hall Hosted by Willingway Hospital 4:00 PM 5:30 PM Late Afternoon Workshops #270 E periential Doors to the many layers o Trauma Mary Bellofatto, MA, LMHC, CEDS NCC, TEP Supported in part by Mary Bellofatto Consulting Clinicians are being challenged as we work with clients in dealing with their layers of trauma. The pressure of doing more with less often forces one to get creative in dealing with the many layers of trauma. The initial trauma, the history, the warm up, and the journey of healing that evolves over the issues of grief, loss, abandonment, and resolution. Where does one begin? That journey I believe begins and ends with the body in action experiencing the journey of healing, through warm-up, sociometry, connection, art, and movement. Psychodrama in action. #271 Compulsi e The t Spending: The Growing Epidemics Terrence Daryl Shulman, JD, LMSW, ACSW, CAAC, CPC Supported in part by The Shulman Center for Compulsive Theft & Spending This workshop will focus on either of both of two growing phenomena: compulsive stealing (more than rare kleptomania, we will focus on addictive shoplifting and employee theft) and compulsive shopping and spending. Shoplifting and compulsive shopping affect approximately 10% of our population. These are growing problems, especially in relation to our downward economy. Many mental health professionals--not to mention, the public at large--are uninformed about these problems and how to assess and treat people. Resources are scare but are growing. Now is the time to learn about these topics. #272 The Power o Paws in Treatment Theresa Anne Slayton-Koger, LCSW, LMHC, LCAC Level of Instruction: Basic/Intermediate Animal Assisted Therapy is becoming more popular and effective in a myriad of settings from mental health clinics, hospitals, schools, prisons, residential programs and private settings. This presentation will focus on and demonstrate how utilizing animal assisted therapy with a certified animal in various settings with all ages will quickly build a therapeutic alliance and furnish opportunities to open up communication between the client and the therapist. For those raised with addiction or are addicted, animal assisted therapy is a powerful tool that creates a safe environment for recovery issues to be addressed. An animal can provide a non-threatening relationship and can easily establish trust, especially to those who have learned to not trust, talk or feel. The magic of the human-animal bond fosters getting to the recovery issues, identifying triggers and prevention planning quicker in a time sensitive world professionals are forced to operate in. Case examples and a group or individual therapy session will be demonstrated, along with a question and answer period. 16

18 schedule of events #273 Twel e Steps To Spiritual Awakening Herbert Kaighan, BA Supported by the Thelma McMillen Center Scott Peck speculates that The Twelve Steps may be the most important spiritual development of the 20th century. It provides an antidote to all addictions and personal brokenness by leading people to an effective relationship with Spirit/Power. The workshop will discuss how to obtain a personal relationship with IT through the Twelve Step process. The presentation will include a review of the origins of the Twelve Steps and a description of the precise process of transformation. Attendees will learn about the 12-Step tools, how their clients can apply them practically to their recovery and how their use will enhance their own professional ministry. More importantly, attendees will be provided an opportunity to actually experience the Twelve Step process and realize their application to their own personal emotional and spiritual life. #274 When Words Aren t Enough: Art and Music Therapy or the Heart o the Pro lem Libby Neal, MA, LPC & Jessica Hyde-Christensen, MM, MT, MA A session of The Rosewood Institute Supported by Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders Have you ever wondered why your patient who has an eating disorder is not making progress? Are the two of you speaking different languages? Known as alexithymia, the inability to name feelings is a common brain development for someone with an eating disorder. As such, a person with an eating disorder may feel ashamed when unable to simply answer the question, how are you feeling today? Non verbal therapies go beneath intellectual defenses to connect with a person s deeper knowing of emotional intelligence. The therapeutic use of art media and musical methodologies offers a kinesthetic, self directed language of symbols, sounds and somatic associations that becomes part of a recovery based vocabulary. These new descriptors hold emotional underpinnings of eating disorders related to trauma memories, body image, shame, and road blocks to recovery. Through hands on experiential and case examples, beginning to advanced practitioners will learn tools and skills for non verbal interventions that can be added to traditional therapies. 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Friday Evening Plenary #299 Hot Topics in Addiction, Treatment, and Reco ery Andrea G. Barthwell, MD, Moderator Panelists: Lou Cox, PhD, Velvet Mangan, CADC1, David Mee-Lee, MD, Jerry Moe, MA, Recovery Representative, David Rosenbloom, PhD, & Rob Waggener Supported by: Two Dreams Outer Banks, C4 Recovery Solutions, The Change Companies, Foundations Recovery Network, Safe Harbor, EgoMechanics.com Imagine a casual setting and a facilitated conversation with the field s leaders and future leaders on the hottest topics facing us today.

MI is an evidence-based practice consistent with the recovery model and strengths based practice perspective. This Motivational Interviewing course will provide participants with insight into people¹s intrinsic motivation to accept & maintain recovery. MI is a person-centered, directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring & resolving ambivalence while not increasing resistance to change.

Dr. Berger will teach you how to anchor the counseling session in the here and how. This historical approach to counseling uses observations of the client s behavior and of the counselor-client relationship to promote awareness. He will help you increase your ability to communicate your observations about the client simply, cogently, and precisely. He will also help you coordinate your curiosity to help the client feel enough personal and therapeutic support to tolerate their exploration of personal issues. The goal of this approach to counseling is to help your client find the words that most accurately express themselves in the moment. Dr. Berger will also teach you how to use the Recovery Self - Addicted Self Model that he developed to promote a client s awareness about the status of their recovery. This powerful training experience will use observations of master therapists, clinical demonstrations and experiential exercises to facilitate learning. 18

20 schedule of events 8:30 AM 12:15 PM AM Half Day Workshop #304 Domestic Violence Patrick DeChello, PhD, LCSW, MSW, RPh Today clinicians are confronted with many clients who face issues of domestic violence on a daily basis. Fact is, every 18 seconds someone in the United States is the victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence affects everyone regardless of race, color, creed, gender or sexual orientation. This is not a phenomenon only limited to women, heterosexuals, the poor, the uneducated or the non-professional. Domestic violence is common against men by women, same gender partners, in the well to do and the highly educated. Many victims are silent about their plight because of embarrassment or fear of retaliation. This workshop will review the following topics : who the victims are; who the perpetrators are; identify signs and symptoms of domestic violence; identify the traits of the victims & perpetrators; understand the cycle of violence and its application; learn to help clients develop Personal Protection Plans ; how to offer help that feels like help; learn types of resources are there to help; how & When to use the police & courts; understand the role of culture, race, religion and sexual orientation in domestic violence; Identify and understand treatment applications that work; and review the legal aspects of domestic violence. #305 Redisco ering Alcoholism, Addiction and Dependence Ray Daugherty Supported by the Prevention Research Institute Ray Daugherty will provide opening keynotes to interactively explore DSM-IV, alcoholism subtypes, paradigm shifts, client engagement and involvement, and how professional staff can offer two treatment paths with entirely different goals: Discovery and Recovery. 8:30 10:00 AM Morning Workshops #315 Resilience in adolescents and young adults: trends which increase suscepti ility to addiction and impact relapse pre ention. Ben Harris, LSAC, Jack Kline, MS, LPC, LCAS, CCS, NCC, ICAADC & Rick Meeves, PhD, LMFT, Supported by Outback Therapeutic Expeditions, Four Circles & SunHawk Adolescent Recovery Center -members of CRC Health Group This panel of treatment experts will address resilience in teens and young adults. They will also address how certain trends in society are not only increasing susceptibility to addiction, but also draw attention to these same trends as increasing susceptibility to relapse. Time will be spent both on adolescents and young adults. There will also be time for question and answer as part of the panel discussion. #316 An Addict s Li e: One Nurse s Journey Joani N. Gammill, RN, BR 1, CNDAI, CNDCS Supported by Caron Treatment Centers This workshop provides a retrospective portrait of my family s history of alcoholism and addiction. Having lost both of my parents to the disease, and nearly succumbing to it myself, we will discuss how genetics plays a strong role in the disease of addiction and how recovery is possible and may even happen in very unexpected ways. By mapping out my life, I show how the three components of addiction; biology, psychology, and sociology play equally important parts in creating an atmosphere where genetic addiction flourishes. I take the audience through a journey with my parents, my friends, my kids, my struggle with chronic pain from a back injury, and finally how a daytime TV show changed my life. I very openly and candidly talk about my struggles with depression and the role that has played; I discuss multiple trips to treatment and the relapses that followed; and I share how a very special producer for the Dr. Phil Show, who lost her own mother to drugs, became instrumental in saving my life. As an active addict for more than 34 years, I spent the last 2 and half years working for an inpatient alcohol and drug rehab center as an RN, raising two young children while injecting opiates into my own arm. 19
