    Addressing Anxiety: A Narrative Therapy Perspective

    David Marsten, LCSW

    Our presenter, David Marsten, will provide a framework for seeing anxiety, and other problems, as separate from the person, in alignment with the well-known narrative therapy saying “the person is not the problem. The problem is the problem.” This presentation will help clinicians understand how to treat a client’s anxiety from a relational perspective, explore and expose its motives and, having helped the client create some distance from it, to reassert themselves and reclaim the direction of their lives. 

    At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify methods to externalize and personify anxiety 
    2. Discern how anxiety is fueled, in part, by cultural discourses 
    3. Contextualize and deconstruct anxiety

    David Marsten, LCSW, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and director of Miracle Mile Community Practice. He is on the faculty of
    the Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy and teaches internationally for Dulwich Centre. He has coauthored several articles and the book, Narrative Therapy in Wonderland. For more information, visit www.mmcpla.org.

    "What Are You?”:
    Considerations for Therapy with Mixed-Race Clients

    Leanne Nettles, LMFT

    In 2020, the population of mixed-race individuals in the US is higher than ever before, and exponentially growing. In this population, there are unique challenges when integrating one’s personal and social identity. This workshop will introduce you to history and themes of mixed-race identity development to consider when assessing and treating clients with a mixed-racial background.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. To learn the difference between race, ethnicity, culture, and nationality when exploring mixed-race identity.
    2. To understand basic history, laws, and social factors which have influenced mixed-race identity development in the US.
    3. To understand common themes in assessing and treating clients who identify as mixed-race.

      Presenter:

      Leanne Nettles, LMFT, is passionate toward working with disenfranchised populations, and currently works as a Clinical Supervisor at D’Veal Family and Youth Services. Growing up mixed-race, Leanne has also experienced many facets of multi-racial identity development. Leanne hopes to improve understanding and culturally-competent therapeutic practice with mixed-race individuals and families.
