      LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Care: Now More Than Ever

      Thomas Mondragon, M.A., LMFT

      While much progress has been gained for LGBTQIA+ people, today we face an alarming increase in anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation and hate crimes across the country. The recent onslaught of anti-LGBTQIA+ violence tells us any advancement is being notably threatened, creating understandable anxiety and concern for many of our LGBTQIA+ clients. The impact of such socio-political violence towards LGBTQIA+ clients will be examined in conjunction with possible complex trauma rooted in heterosexism, cissexism and intersectional oppression. Taking an affirmative therapeutic stance to directly address such traumas led by your empathic presence, theoretical knowledge and your role as LGBTQIA+ activist will also be addressed. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

      1. Identify the impact of current socio-political legislation and hate crimes as an assault to the LGBTQIA+ sense of self, self-identity and self-expression.
      2. Understand the harmful and traumatic effects of growing up in a heterosexist and cissexist setting on the psychological, social and emotional development of LGBTQIA+ individuals.
      3. Provide examples of what an LGBTQIA+ affirmative counseling environment entails and why this is crucial for effective treatment.

        Thomas Mondragon, M.A., LMFT is an associate faculty member and founding instructor in both the LGBT Specialization and the Spiritual and Depth Psychology Specialization at Antioch University Los Angeles. He enjoys teaching classes in both specializations and in the general Master’s program that recognize the importance of diversity consciousness on the cultural, interpersonal, and intrapersonal levels. In addition, Thomas has a private practice in West Hollywood with a strong focus on gay-centered psychotherapy. He has presented at the national level with the National Conference of Race and Ethnicity, the Expanding the Circle Conference: Creating an Inclusive Environment in Higher Education for LGBTQ Students and Studies, and in the yearly conference of the Los Angeles Lesbian and Gay Psychotherapy Association.

        Self-Compassionate Networking Workshop

        Anna Chen, AMFT, APCC 

        We all know networking is important, and important things are the easiest to procrastinate on. In this one-hour presentation we will lay out actionable steps to get you connected with others and moving towards your networking goals. For best results, consider attending on a computer, plan to practice your willingness to be uncomfortable, and bring a healthy dose of self-compassion.

        Anna Chen is an associate therapist currently specializing in OCD and Anxiety disorders as well as working with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. She is passionate about self-compassion, authenticity, and living by one's values. As an introvert and recovering perfectionist, she knows the fear and discomfort that seem inexorably tied to networking, and has discovered the joys and opportunities behind being scared and doing it anyways. Anna graduated with an MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and currently works at the California OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center

        For more information, contact Carissa Lataillade, AMFT, APCC or Tyana Tavakol.

        Best Practices for Multicultural Supervision

        Dr. Theo Burnes, Ph.D., LPCC

        This interactive six-hour training provides background knowledge and context for clinical supervision and showcases a diversity of evidence-based approaches to conduct multiculturally competent supervision. Beginning with a review of current literature in clinical supervision, this workshop aims to provide the information necessary in assisting the supervisor to both support their trainees’ development and to maintain ethical client care. Specifically, this training addresses supervisory interventions from a multicultural framework in clinical supervision to create lasting meaning and impact across the professional lifespan of the mental health trainee and beyond. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to: 
        1. Identify two concrete ways to conceptualize a trainee's knowledge, attitudes, and skills using a culture-centered framework.
        2. Compare and contrast six different models of culture-centered supervision.
        3. Identify and define at least two evidence-based interventions in multicultural supervision.
        4. Apply at least one culture-centered model of clinical supervision in their continuing development as clinical supervisors of mental health trainees.
        5. Identify two concrete strategies for using the Competency Benchmarks in clinical supervision.
