All Kinds of News for November 07, 2018
Greg Burnham, MS, LMFT, Clinical Director, will be co-facilitating a presentation during the upcoming Fall IECA (Independent Educational Consultant Association) Conference scheduled in Los Angeles, California. He, alongside, Karen Mabie, EdS, are set to present on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm. Their presentation, titled “How We Create Narcissists and More: How the Work We Do Has Direct Negative Consequences,” will invite and encourage an honest and open discussion on unintended effects of treatment within the field of private pay behavioral healthcare.
In addition, attendees can expect to explore and address transport trauma, narcissism, treatment bubbles, family disconnect, increased resistance, compliance, treatment language and more. Discussions will include how to mitigate the unconscious negatives and strategies for steering away from the ones that can be avoided. Throughout this presentation, Greg and Karen will ask questions that are commonly circumvented for a variety of reasons. The hope here is to create a dialogue that people can take back to their programs to help everyone continue to grow as an industry.
