LISA FERENTZ, LCSW-C DAPA
Lisa is a recognized expert in the strengths-based, depathologized treatment of trauma and has been in private practice for 34 years. She has been an Adjunct Faculty member at University of Maryland School of Social Work, University of Baltimore at Maryland, University of Maryland Department of Family Medicine, and is the founder of The Ferentz Institute.
Lisa will spend the morning with us providing a program on ethics (The Slippery Slope of Clinical Practice: Processing Ethical Scenarios) and in the afternoon working with patients in trauma (Creative Strategies to Enhance Affect Regulation in Traumatized Clients).
Morning Learning Objectives:
- Describe the ethical parameters of the client-therapist relationship and the red flags that represent the blurring of boundaries.
- Describe at least three counter-transferential reactions that put therapists on an ethical “slippery slope.”
- Explain the clinical rationale for ethically using self-disclosure in therapy: when it’s appropriate and when it’s not.
- Identify the ethical grounds for transferal and termination.
All three hours will be devoted to processing case scenarios, exploring the potential ethical dilemmas and conflicts, and then discussing ethical solutions.
Afternoon Learning Objectives:
- Identify and implement at least two treatment strategies designed to teach traumatized clients how to modulate emotional arousal.
- Describe and implement at least two strategies to help clients with containment and the avoidance of flooding.
- Describe and implement at least three examples of somatic resourcing.
- Describe and implement at least two breathing strategies to navigate both hypo-arousal and hyper-arousal.
