Clinical & Theological Reflection Case Consultation Group
There are 2-3 spots available for this ongoing case consultation group for licensed (or temporary licensed) therapists of all types. The Group is intended to provide peer consultation as well as an ecumenical case consultation for depth, meaning, assessment & utilization of spiritual resources. We will deal with issues of diagnosis and treatment planning but will go beyond this to look at the deeper meanings, existential and spiritual themes as well as spiritual resources.
When:  2:00 – 3:30 pm
Where:  The Counseling Center at Belle Meade UMC, 121 Davidson Road, Nashville, TN 37205
Cost:  N/A
In addition to providing peer support, reflection and consultation on differential diagnoses, difficult cases, and treatment planning, this group should help with:
1. A broadening of appreciation for diverse points of view by reviewing a variety of cases with a diverse group of participants and engaging in dialogue and reflection with a range of ethnic, socio-economic, and religious perspectives.
2. Gaining an awareness of how to listen for the spiritual story of their clients and learn how to integrate that story with other aspects of therapy.
3. growth in an understanding of the therapist’s own spiritual and religious traditions and learn when and how to appropriately draw on these for the benefit of their clients.

While there is no cost to participate in the group and there are no minimum sessions to attend, the goal of the group is to create supportive environment for peer learning and growth. Regular participation will help facilitate this. After the initial group is set, new group members may be added periodically.
Meetings will primarily involve sharing of case material by group members. Participants will be encouraged to reflect and share personally on their own traditions, learning, and challenges. Due to the nature of case material shared and personal sharing, participants must be able to be respectful of other group members and case material.
Confidentiality of case material presented, and personal sharing of group members is of utmost importance. Group members will be given a general format for preparing case material presented to the group. In all case presentations, Participants should seek to protect potentially identifying information. In the rare case that a client being presented is recognized by another participant, that participant may be excused from the conversation.

HSP (Highly Sensitive Persons) Group
A combination of psychoeducation, support group, and interpersonal process, the HSP Group is designed to benefit both therapists and non-therapists who identify as having Highly Sensitive Personality. Each session I give a brief didactic piece about HSP and then we open the group to sharing and interpersonal process.  Because this is a small group (5-6), participants must commit to attending all four sessions.

When: Sunday afternoons from 2:00-3:30pm
Where:  Laura Kreiselmaier’s Office Group Room
Cost:  $60/group = $240 total (Registration due Dec. 23)

Unraveling the “Survival Knot.”
Earn 21 CEUs at a three-day highly experiential Clinical Training, which will take place on January 10-12, 2020, in Durham, North Carolina.

The “Survival Knot” is the most treacherous territory of a couple’s relationship. It is the unconscious, and yet essential agenda, embedded in the “problem” with which they appear in the office of the therapist. Witness my step-by-step, systematic roadmap to “unravel” the relational impasse, where one person’s anguished desperation meets the other person’s dogged resistance, and vice versa. Learn how Encounter-centered Couples Therapy liberates the growth potential of the relationship.

My work today is the crystallization of 40 years of work as a psychotherapist, as well as the integration of everything that I have learned in my “clinical couples lab” established 25 years ago, and in my own “private living lab” with my husband Yumi, established 53 years ago.

April 10, 11 and 12, 2020

When trauma is experienced it affects emotional, mental and physical health and increases the likelihood of chronic pain, anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship difficulties.  Experiential therapies (psychodrama, art, movement and other somatic work, meditation, music, etc) assist in the healing of trauma and loss and take the work beyond the thinking brain to the body and the mind where we were injured.
