    Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples... 

    November 6-9, 2017 in Columbus!  

    Info at http://ohpsych.org/?page=EFTExternship2017

    The registration deadline is October 5.  Four day course provided by the Ohio Psychological Association

    I took part in this four-day externship in February 2015 and it revolutionized the way that I approach couples therapy!  I had been frustrated over the lack of understanding that was occurring between partners within therapy and realized that I needed to learn ways to help them speak constructively on a more emotional level rather than a logical/intellectual level.  This approach helped me to bring emotions into therapy in a constructive way and create understanding between partners.

    I HIGHLY recommend you make the time for this training...  It WILL definitely be worthwhile!

    CEU’s—Counselors and Social Workers (provider #040502) $60.00

    Relationship with food issues arise with most of the clients that mental health therapists see, whether these issues are a symptom of and/or occur in conjunction with other disorders such as depression and anxiety. As therapists seeking to work effectively with patients with such issues it is important to be able to assess and determine the severity of the relationship with food issues for each individual and to make appropriate referrals in cases where the severity of the disorder exceeds our level of experience and competence, or requires a higher level of care than we are able to provide in outpatient treatment. In situations where outpatient treatment is appropriate, therapists may utilize skills with which most are already familiar such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address these issues. In such cases a patient’s relationship with food issues can become a window into better understanding our clients and assisting with challenging their more expansive thinking errors that impact their lives beyond their food/feelings experiences. This session will focus on learning to appropriately diagnoses and refer patients in the more severe cases while refreshing the CBT skill set for use with those with mildly to moderately impaired relationships with food.

    Objectives: Participants will be able to:

     Learn how to assess and differentiate Eating Disorders vs. relationship with food issues with patients

     Be able to determine when a patient requires a referral to a higher level of care vs. when outpatient treatment is appropriate

     Learn interventions used with patients with relationship with food issues in an outpatient treatment setting

     Refresh their Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skills and understand how CBT concepts can be applied to patients with relationship with food issues

    Presented by: Christine Saladin, PCC-S

    Christine ("Chris") Saladin, PCC-S has been working as a mental health therapist working in Huron and Lorain Counties over the past 25 years. She is currently an associate in private practice at Psych and Psych Services in Elyria, Ohio , conducting therapy with pre-teens and adolescents and their families, individual adults, and couples. While working at Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services of Huron County in the past, Ms. Saladin received specialized training in Eating Disorder Assessment and treatment and she has continued to work with non-acute patients with eating disorders in outpatient treatment while working at Psych and Psych. More commonly Ms. Saladin has worked with patients with alternative primary diagnoses (such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma histories, and/or adjustment issues) who present with symptoms of distorted or dysfunctional relationships with food that impact their lives and their functioning. With a background in Marital and Family Therapy, Ms. Saladin seeks to address relationship with food issues within the context of relationship dynamics as well as an individual's overall mental health.

    A patient’s unique family and social relationship dynamics can have a major impact on their lives and their overall mental and emotional health. Early experiences with food and eating and ongoing experiences with food into adulthood within our social environment can mirror many of the emotional and relational conflicts that we experience from childhood into adulthood. In this session we will explore how a patient’s family and social environment and experiences may affect their sense of self and their ability to form healthy relationship bonds with regards to their eating and socialization. We will also learn and practice drawing out a patient’s individualized feelings and needs using the food/feelings journal intervention. Further, we will discuss how the use of modern technology and social media affect a client’s self-esteem and relationship with food. And finally, we will delve into our own relationship with food issues as therapists, recognizing that the more that we are able to address our own issues the more effective and therapeutic we will be able to be with our clients.

    Objectives: Participants will be able to:

     Identify family dynamics and social environment as they factor into a patient’s relationship with food issues

     Learn and practice the use of a food/feelings journal as an intervention tool for patients

     Identify co-occurring mental health symptoms and/or disorders that surface for patients with relationship with food issues

     Explore and gain insight into their own relationship with food issues and how they may be impacted by patients as treating professionals

     Recognize how the use of modern technology and social media affect self-esteem and relationship with food issues
