An Affair to Remember: CE Workshop


Oct 6 – Nov 3: Understanding Life Backward but Living It Forward: Analyzing to Understand but Envisioning Possibilities to Incentivize Action 2023. Online. $525, 18 CEs. Martha Stark, MD, will present an action-based, solution-focused, future-oriented psychodynamic model that conceives of the mind as holding infinite potential and of memory as dynamic and continuously updating itself on the basis of new experience (whether real or simply envisioned). A constructivist perspective at heart, her freshly minted Model 5 is an innovative and exciting approach to healing that is informed by the groundbreaking neuroscientific discovery that when traumatic memories are reactivated in an embodied fashion, the network of synapses encoding those memories will become deconsolidated for a time-limited period.

Oct 20: Misery or Mastery: Documenting Medical Necessity for Psychotherapists. Zoom & In-person, Waltham, MA. $145, 6 CEs (additional charge: $20). Good documentation helps organize clinical thinking. Progress notes, treatment plans, case and collateral contact notes, discharge and diagnostic summaries can be done quickly and efficiently and provide a vehicle for formulating and reflecting on high quality clinical work rather than being a detour or afterthought. Good documentation supports good clinical practice, facilitates getting authorizations, and helps mental health professionals and clinics pass insurance audits. When practitioners are skilled at documenting their work there is a reduction in work related anxiety, increased productivity, and increased job satisfaction. Beth Rontal, LICSW will simplify clinical documentation by teaching her effective, efficient, and distinct procedure, which result in medical records that are clear, compliant, and clinically useful.
