    Considering the Role of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Mental Health by Dr. Christine Berger, PhD, LPC  August 12, 7-8pm EST via Zoom *Please Note NEW event date* 

    This webinar will empower counselors and students with information about integrating complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) with mental health counseling. CAM is a term that refers to multiple modalities such as meditation, mindfulness, yoga, acupuncture, Ayurveda, Reiki, EFT tapping, nutrition, along with many other mind-body-spirit approaches. While these health approaches have been used often in other countries and cultures for millennia, their use within health in the United States is still fairly new. This interactive webinar will explain the breadth of CAM, describe the current state of the CAM research with evidence for mental health treatment, and discuss ethical and legal challenges when engaging this emerging area.

    Participants will learn 1) how CAM is defined, including the NCCIH formal definition 2) to be able to describe the current state of CAM research and practice with special attention to trauma and 3) to explain the key ethical and legal considerations that arise when engaging CAM in counseling.

                Christine Berger is an Assistant Professor of Counselor Education at Old Dominion University. She received her PhD in Counselor Education from Loyola University Maryland in 2009. In her current position and in her past work at the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine she has conducted research in complementary and integrative modalities and their impact on mental health. Previous studies included the effect of meditation on anxiety disorders, EFT for general mental health, and Healing Touch for grief counseling. She has published several research articles and book chapters and has presented at numerous conferences on these topics in the US and internationally. She has also created and successfully run an online CAM continuing education program for licensed professional counselors through her Institute for Integrative Therapies.

    Facilitating Therapeutic Care for Clients Experiencing Traumatic Grief and Loss, by Glenda Laurent Dickonson, Ph.D., LCPC, NCC, August 14th, 10am-12noon, via Zoom.

    The last few months have served up a toxic blend of negative events that have resulted in pain, grief, loss, and trauma to many members of our communities.  The emergence of COVID-19 as a pandemic has significantly adjusted our worldview and caused an unprecedented requirement for social distancing and isolation resulting in the exacerbation of symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress.  Many have experienced and grieved both real and imagined fear of loss of safety and lives, and a significant number of citizens have also suffered a loss of livelihood.  The rash of police violence saturating cities across the United States has heightened the need to examine society and culture through the lens of critical race theory.  It has also triggered an overdue recognition of the presence of racial trauma among black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), and the ripple effect of violence and death, which have resulted in traumatic grief.  This workshop will address how mental health professionals can provide care and counsel to clients affected by the above-mentioned events, who are experiencing traumatic grief, and are at risk of sustaining permanent emotional scarring with far reaching negative effects on their wellbeing. This presentation further aims to empower mental health practitioners with the requisite tools to facilitate their clients’ needs, to address their experience of traumatic grief, and to achieve appropriate healthy coping skills with the possibility of attaining posttraumatic growth.  

    Attendees will learn 1) strategies and techniques to address the effects of traumatic grief from systemic racial trauma; 2) how to address the negative impact of COVID-19 on clients with pre-existing conditions with trauma-informed interventions; and 3) use of posttraumatic growth to improve client outcomes. 

    Glenda Laurent Dickonson, Ph.D., LCPC, NCC is a licensed clinical professional counselor with a passion for helping her clients on their journey to wellness.  She embraces positive psychology and a growth-oriented, eclectic approach to treatment.  Dr. Dickonson earned both her Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision and her MS in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University Maryland.  She also earned an M.S.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling from Hunter College, City University of New York. 

    Dr. Dickonson works in private practice and as a contract therapist at an OMHC.  She is experienced in diagnosing and treating a range of mental health and behavioral issues and offers individual, couples, and group counseling, currently via a telehealth portal.  Her practice includes, but is not limited to treating mood disorders, trauma, bereavement, traumatic grief, anger, relationship, and self-esteem issues. Dr. Dickonson’s research focuses on the cultural and spiritual intersections of parental grieving and posttraumatic growth among parents of homicide victims.  Her study has contributed to the development of a trauma grief growth model which she uses as a framework for understanding and treating traumatic grief.

    Exploring the Relationship of Christianity/Spirituality/Religiosity with Success in Alcoholics Anonymous by Mala Hosmane, PhD, LCPC, ACS, LCADC, Board Approved Alcohol and Drug Counselor Supervisor,  7pm September 10, 2020 Via Zoom

    Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is known as a successful recovery program with a primary focus on spirituality. This spiritual focus is traditionally from a Christian point of view and there is an ongoing debate of whether people of differing spiritual and religious backgrounds have an equal chance of success in recovery through AA. This seminar aims to improve how clinicians may make more informed referrals for Christian and non-religious/spiritual clients to AA.  This session will review the most recent and relevant research, including how the basic tenets of Christianity mirror the foundations of AA and how persons of the Christian faith may be a better fit for AA.  Discussion will include pastoral themes including God Image, Forgiveness, Afterlife and Accountability that influence successful recovery. In addition, challenges to the customary theory that spirituality or religiosity persons attending AA have an increased success outcome than non-spiritual/religious persons and future implications for research are presented.

    Attendees will learn: 1) How to make appropriate client referrals to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) by matching their religious/spiritual background 2) How to provide alternatives for those clients who are hesitant to engage in the spiritual nature of AA 3) How the spiritual background of AA correlates to increased success among Christian clients. 

    Mala Hosmane, PhD, LCPC, ACS, LCADC is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor and Approved Clinical Supervisor in Maryland with over 15 years of experience in the mental health and substance abuse field.  She has worked in a variety of settings including residential programs, mental health and drug and alcohol clinics, community based and private practice. Her experience includes drug and alcohol and clinical mental health counseling as well as case management.   Her clientele populations are of diverse backgrounds, including the formerly incarcerated, chronically mentally ill and homeless women.  She holds two certificates in Pastoral Counseling, from both Loyola University of Maryland and Liberty University. Her dissertation and publication interests include spirituality, perceived social support and drug and alcohol addiction.

    This is a NEW free ongoing Bi-Weekly Spirituality Peer Supervision & Support Group sponsored by the Maryland Counseling Association (MCA) and Maryland's Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling (MASERVIC).

    These open group meetings are being held via Zoom every other week on Tuesdays, from 12:00 pm until 1:30 pm. We look forward to these consultation groups to offer ongoing support for all mental health professionals during these uncertain times and beyond. Students, pre-licensed and licensed clinicians are welcome. Please try to come to these meetings on time so that you dont miss the introductions and beginning conversation. Please KINDLY let us know at least 24 hours prior to the beginning if you cannot make it.

    We have been discussing our views on how to enhance holistic integrative and spiritual self-care for us clinicians, as well as, what the future may hold for the mental health field. The focus of these meetings will be on the mind/body and spiritual connection to healing with ways to bring this into our therapeutic sessions.  Also, we have been including time for case consultations and sharing ideas.  

    The Zoom link will be sent out by 11:59 pm, the day before each meeting.

    Together we can thrive, collaborate with hope, and learn to accept uncertainty!
