The Power of One

Rhonda Sciortino
One person can change the trajectory of the life of another in a moment.  The power of our influence is often overlooked and underestimated.  Each of us influences people for good or for bad through our attitudes, words, and actions. When we’re mindful of our power, we can use it to plant seeds of goodness in the lives of everyone we meet, and thereby change the world!

Trouble Engaging in CBT?  The Challenge of Working with Limbically Reactive Individuals
Geraldine Crisci, MSW
Evidence-based trauma informed cognitive behavioral interventions have helped numerous children, youths and adults successfully integrate traumatic experience. Barriers to this success have arisen when the traumatized individual involved is stuck in a limbically reactive state. Severe behavioral disturbances resulting from chaotic, violent and disrupted attachment experiences often challenge effective engagement in CBT methods.
In some ways, for these individuals, CBT is the graduate program when the clinical needs are at a primary school level! The clinical match is “off.” These clients many times complete the CBT program, but re-enter the system for similar problematic symptoms and behavior. The method is sound; the therapist is competent; but is the client ready?
This institute will review an approach and methodology that has been successful in preparing children to better engage in traditional CBT intervention. One of the areas examined will be the impact of developmental arrest and its implications for effective trauma treatment. Focus will be on specific “hands-on” interventions for use with children, youth and adults.
The needs of caregivers will be taken in to account when developing appropriate family support and intervention. Included will be biological families, foster families and residential staff.
A protocol for screening and assessing clinical needs will be reviewed. Case examples will be used to illustrate clinical material. The audience is welcome to present particularly challenging case examples for discussion.

Balancing Life While Living For Others
Rhonda Sciortino
Too many good people who do good in our communities suffer from burnout. They are underpaid and often under-supported, and unappreciated. Many struggle with secondary trauma and pay the price in terms of damage to their personal relationships, their health, and their overall quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
In this presentation, Rhonda talks about putting your work into perspective, knowing what’s yours, nurturing what counts, and finding the purpose for which you were created and are fully equipped to fulfill.

CSEC 101:  Commercial and Sexual Exploitation of Children
Ashley Carroll, MSW, and Jana Wiseman
Child sex trafficking is a growing problem throughout our nation. The Portland area has become a known hub -- forcing outlying communities to develop a response to both meet the unique needs of victims and prosecute traffickers. This training is Clackamas County’s educational tool for service providers, law enforcement and community stakeholders covering the underlying social causes of human trafficking, the realities of “the life,” the long-term effects on victims, and how communities can best build their own response.
