    Join the Colleague Collaboration for a great VIRTUAL event!

    Many of us, whether in agencies or private practice, can feel like we are sometimes “going it alone” and wish we could receive advice from our colleagues, especially on our most difficult cases. This is your opportunity to bring those tough cases and clients to your peers to seek feedback in a safe and confidential environment where all psychotherapists – clinical mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, and psychologists – can share their struggles and receive advice on their problem cases.  No cases that need assistance?  Bring your experience and expertise to share with your colleagues.  Collaboration is a team effort that enlightens us all!

    Re-storying Lost Identities in Families with Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive Identities Although family members vary in their degree and pace of acceptance of a family member that differs in their sexual, affectional, intersex, and/or gender expansive identity, most struggle adjusting to the change in their identity as a family. When an individual comes out, family members may be affected regardless of their own gender identity or sexual orientation. Reactions may include grief, shame, anger and worries about their family. Counselors can help family members identify and process feelings around ambiguous loss through the use of The Relationship Tree and guide families into reauthoring their family’s transition story. 

    Training Objectives: 

    1. Participants will be able to analyze their own values, beliefs, and behaviors associated with working with LGBTQI+ clients through the use of a self-assessment tool.

    2. Participants will be able to apply an ethical decision-making process for working with LGBTQI+ clients.

    3. Participants will be able to identify and educate families on ambivalent guilt reactions and ambiguous loss as it relates to their Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive expansive loved-one.

    4. Participants will be able to demonstrate the use of The Relationship Tree as an experiential approach to processing grief as it relates to ambivalent feelings and ambiguous loss.

    5. Participants will be able to facilitate the process of identifying perceived losses related to the family member and guide clients to reauthor their family story

      Do you love your practice? Does your practice love you? If you answered “No, “ to either question, this training is designed just for you. If you answered, “Yes,” then you’ll want to attend because YOU know how quickly things change, and we want to help keep you “up to speed.”


      Whether you’re just starting, thinking of starting, or a seasoned practitioner, you’ll want to attend our annual Practice Building Symposium.


      • But we’ll be doing this unlike any other year. Why? Because you’ll help create the presentation. This past year, we’ve all experienced how important it is to plan, adapt and change. We want to hear what your biggest challenges have been so we can provide you with the guidance, resources, and tools to maintain your health and wellbeing while also maintaining a successful, thriving practice.

        That means you’ll be sending us your trickiest questions, most significant challenges, and worst fears, and we’ll respond accordingly during the symposium. By the way, we’ll focus on building your private practice WITHOUT being dependent on insurance or managed care.

        Participants will:

      • Discover the core essentials of building, developing, and growing your own unique Mental Health Professional business through the 50 Ways to Love Your Practice
      •  Understand the differences between “only” having a practice vs. the endless opportunities of running a business
      •  Learn why many practices fail and how you can prevent that from happening to you
      •  Create a basic business plan and marketing plan, plus your mission, vision, and purpose statements, all of which will guide you to maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle while also having a successful and thriving practice
      •  Uncover how to be a successful businessperson without ever having to go to business school

      Ken Donaldson will facilitate this training. He’s been working in the field since 1986 and started his private practice in 1989. He’s been a successful therapist, a life and business coach, a professional speaker and trainer, as well as an author of several books. He’ll be sharing all the “secrets” (they’re not) he’s learned while incorporating all the questions and challenges that you’ll email to Ken previous to the training (and, as always, you can ask questions during the presentation too!!)

      Get ready for a practice-building adventure like you’ve never experienced before!!

      Send your questions, concerns, and challenges directly to Ken at Ken@KenDonaldson.com.
