Bringing Advocacy into Everyday Practice: Scalability and Balance in Today's Arizona
Halina Brooke, MS, LAMFT, LAC

The past year has been full of intensity, change, and both new and re-emerging issues that impact the counseling profession and its vital work. This session will begin with an overview of key concerns that impact Arizona counselors and the clients we serve, including legislative issues and the growing traction for the interstate compact here in Arizona. After discussion of what advocacy means within the profession, participants will be guided through an activity to attune with the issues that matter to them and will uncover scalable, everyday ways to infuse advocacy into their practice. Participants will walk away with greater attunement to their own counseling values, practical strategies for connecting with others in community to advance shared goals, and a deeper understanding of how professional advocacy differs from partisan and political endeavors. Objectives: 1. Build awareness of current, local issues related to advocacy for the profession and the clients we serve. 2. Uncover ways to infuse advocacy into clinical practice and related roles. 3. Build insight into how personal counseling values can serve to inform participants' advocacy endeavors. 4. Understand the difference between political/partisan activism and professional advocacy.

Politics? Covid? NAH! Let's Talk About ETHICS Instead!
Keith Cross, PhD

LICENSURE BOARD COMPLAINTS, RECORDS REQUESTS, AND SUBPOENAS! OH MY! How often has the social service agency water cooler drama included salacious topics such as these? By unintentionally spreading many myths and misinformation about counselor ethics, liability and risk management, many counseling professionals create and perpetuate liability anxiety contagion. This session will review the Second Edition Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO) Counselor Liability Claim Report, which details the actual data (collected over the last 15 years) on the most common reasons for malpractice claims against counselors as well as the outcomes of those claims. As a result of this information, we will discuss specific ways to minimize your liability as a counselor so you can practice from a place of confidence rather than fear. This presentation will also include discussion of recent changes to the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners rules and statutes.

Objectives:
• Apply the results of the Second Edition CNA/HPSO Counselor Liability Claim Report: Second Edition to clinical practice.
• Describe two specific behaviors that can lead to board complaints and client malpractice claims.
• Based on the identified malpractice claims and board complaints, identify ten risk management strategies applicable to clinical practice. 
• Learn the most recent rule and statute changes relevant to clinicians in Arizona.

Keith Cross, PhD is a faculty member in the Masters of Science in Counseling program at Prescott College.

In the Best Interests of…Whom? When Confidentiality and Due Process Collide in Court Cases Involving Children

In this intensive, Dr. Ann Ordway will discuss the conflicting concepts of “best interests” of a child and “due process” for adults in family-based court proceedings.

Facilitating Healing, Resiliency, and Hope:   Trauma Responsive Care


Presentation Details

Summary
Trauma is now recognized as a near universal experience of individuals with behavioral health issues often resulting in a complex array of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  Through understanding of the latest trauma research and careful translation into practice, we can help trauma survivors experience healing, resiliency, and hope.  This training coordinates trauma informed care into a framework that can be used by anyone working with victims of trauma.  It includes the three stages of positive trauma resolution (re-experience, release, and re-organize) and the five resilience factors found in people who move beyond their traumatic experiences.  Trauma’s effect on brain chemistry, development, and relationships are explored, and since trauma is processed and stored in nonverbal parts of the brain, expressive, relational, and sensory based will be identified to benefit clients of all ages and ability levels.  Service plan goals and objectives will also be presented to assist in bringing this treatment to your current work. 

Objectives
Participants will be able to identify and address: 

The centrality of relationships in human growth and development, how the quality of relationships affects brain development and the healing power of empathic connection. 
The impact of trauma on brain development, attachment, and developmental milestones. 
Cultural context and its impact physically, psychologically, and behaviorally 
Trauma induced co-occurring disorders 
The three stages of positive trauma resolution and how to address them with survivors. 
The five resilience factors found in people who overcome and do not recreate their traumatic experiences.
