More and more people are comfortable coming out as bisexual, pansexual, fluid, and non-monosexual (or “bi+”) in recent history, and findings show that more women identify as bi+ than men, but this may mask the complex psychosocial challenges facing bi+ women, such as internalized biphobia, mood, and anxiety disorders, sexual assault, and suicidality. In this workshop, you will learn more about these important mental health and cultural issues and gain tools to become a more LGBT affirming and culturally competent clinician.

Psychological Traumas in Adoption & Facilitating Healthy Adaptation 

 

Presented by:  Tracy L. Carlis, Ph.D. 

  

70% of all inmates have spent time in foster care or have been adopted. While most adoptees manage fairly well despite the attachment disruption following separation from birthmother, there is a subset of adoptees that develop malignant clinical dissociative identity disorders that culminate in adoptee parricide, mass murdering or serial killing.

 


 

Tracy L. Carlis, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice specializing in all areas of adoption with children and adults. In her forensic practice, she is an expert witness in a number of capital murder cases involving adoptee parricides. As member of the adoption constellation herself, she has specialized in adoption for over twenty-five years.

 Treating Chronic Pain in Disability 

 Presented by: Stacy Reger, Ph.D. 

 

The “Treating Chronic Pain in Disability” training is designed to educate clinicians about psychological and behavioral management of chronic pain.  In addition, the training will address work with individuals with disabilities, and ways that traditional psychological chronic pain treatments can be modified to accommodate functional limitations.

 

 

 

Stacy Reger, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Redondo Beach, CA, and at the VA Long Beach Spinal Cord Injury/Disorders unit.  She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and completed predoctoral internship at San Francisco VA Medical Center, where she also completed her postdoctoral fellowship with a specialty emphasis in Geropsychology.  Dr. Reger’s role in SCI/D at VA Long Beach includes inpatient and outpatient therapy with spinal-cord-injured veterans, serving as the psychologist for the SCI/D long-term care residential unit, and supervising the SCI/D Neuropsychology Clinic. In her private practice, Dr. Reger sees adults and older adults for individual and couple therapy, and specializes in issues related to aging, grief, caregiver burden, coping with chronic and life-limiting illness, adjustment to disability, and management of chronic pain.
