    VIRTUAL Colleague Collaboration + Eat your Lunch

    presented by SMHCA


    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!

    You will need the Zoom Meeting ID and Password to join this event.  We invite you to join 5 minutes before the start of the event.

    For No-drama Holidays: Bully Proof Clients with the Neurochemical of Connection, Contemplation and Comedy


    Presented by Kate Cohen-Posey, LMHC, LMFT  

    Associate Clinician of Florida Behavioral Health | Office Address: 930 Alicia Rd. Lakeland, FL

    Friday, November 20th from 1:30 - 4:30 PM

    3.0 General CEUs


    This workshop will show how to give clients empowering tools to manage dominance behaviors from spouses, children, parents, colleagues, and more. The efficacy of these strategies will be explained by comparing the neurochemical effects that drive RAGE and FEAR versus CARING, SEEKING and PLAYFUL emotions. An easy protocol will be demonstrated that employs convenient technology to teach clients these strategies. 


    1.  Distinguish fight-flight (attack-defend-withdraw) reactions from rest-restore (accessible, responsive, engaged) responses so clients can recognize interaction patterns they are currently using or want to employ in their relationships.
    2. Formulate empowering responses that clients can use to Affirm, Ask questions, Actively listen, or embed Hints and Humor (AAAH) to disarm hostile remarks from family or the community at large.
    3. Identify the neurochemicals that drive RAGE, FEAR, and PANIC reactions versus SEEKING, CARING, and PLAYFUL responses in order to explain the effectiveness of empowering responses.
