spring which was outstanding, and we look forward to having him for a full day.
In October, we will have an LGBTQ panel. I invite you all to
attend . Our program committee has been working very hard putting a panel
together that can share with us on this very important topic.

June Presentation Summary
Psychopharmacology (2 CEUs)
By: John Preston, PsyD., ABPP
John Preston has an amazing way of explaining the complex in a simple to understand way. He holds your attention and makes you want to know more. John Preston reviewed the most recent developments in the field of
psychopharmacology and explained how psychotherapists could enhance
outcomes with their clients taking psychiatric medications. He discussed what many often will not - the
common reasons that medical treatments fail such as unsuspected medical
disorders, non-adherence, side effects, fears and mis-information. He also described
specific interventions that improve outcomes. I appreciated that he talked about how therapists can act as
coaches with clients dealing with medication issues and we can collaborate with
primary care prescribers to help our clients have better outcomes. He touched on controversies,
experimental treatments, new medications and the limitations of
pharmacologic treatments. That was the shortest 2 hours I have had in a long time. I look forward to seeing him in September for an all day training. I just want so much more information and he explains things in a way I can understand them.

Client Centered Cultural
Competency By Tonya Elliott-Walker LMFT University of Phoenix,
Sacramento Valley Campus
The demand for evidenced based practices by third party payers
often leaves clinicians no choice but to lean heavily in the direction of
behaviorally based models of treatment with little regard for the cultural
needs of the client. Agencies often have good intentions with regards to
providing culturally competent services but inevitably they must succumb to
what is reimbursable in order to stay in business. CBT and DBT are both well researched and easily
conceptualized and implemented by both seasoned practitioners and student
interns. However they are not always evidenced based for cultural minorities.
It is often these models that are culturally adapted with the intention to meet
the mental health needs of various marginalized populations. Sometimes this
works and sometimes it does not. What is evident is that there is not enough research
regarding the efficacy of these culturally adapted models. Current research in
the field of counselor education and supervision suggests that an integrative
approach to treatment may be a better way to fulfill the need for culturally
competent mental health practices (Ingram,
Focusing on behavior alone often excludes the other
dimensions of cultural life that may play a much bigger part in the overall
mental health of ethnic minorities; spirituality, mind- body awareness,
community based relational awareness and connection to nature to name just a
few. It is not enough to simply try to change behavior, clinicians need to
learn to conceptualize within multiple theoretical frameworks in order to
capture the worldview of their minority client. Client centered cultural
competency requires that the clinician not only remain open-minded, but that
the clinician can actually immerse themselves in a worldview other than their
own abandoning any personal or professional agenda they may have had and
entering into an authentic organic therapeutic experience of mutual learning
and exploration with their client. In this way the role of the therapist becomes that of a
facilitator of change grounded in his/her authentic self, helping the client’s
authentic self to emerge as well.
Existential theory is one
option for contributing to an integrative framework. It offers a unique
perspective that blends well with multiple cultural paradigms while still
allowing for a focus on behavioral change. With values such as authenticity,
finding meaning in suffering, understanding existential guilt and anxiety, as
well as mastering the concepts of the four worlds, physical, the social,
the psychological, and the spiritual (Corsini, &
Wedding, 2000; Ingram, 2012; Frankyl,
1952), one can easily draw parallels between the
values of an existential world view and that of many ethnic minorities. For
example; the Native American worldview supports the constructs of wholeness
using the medicine wheel and the four directions as a foundation for wellness.
The medicine wheel is interpreted differently within each tribal paradigm but
in essence is very similar to the existential concept of the four worlds (Rybak, & Decker-Fitts, 2009),
incorporating our physical life, our emotional life, our relational life and
our spiritual life into a path of balance, wisdom and
wellbeing. In Buddhist culture the four noble truths provide a foundation for
wellness that incorporates the existential concept of suffering, acknowledging
that it exists, that is has meaning, and that we have the power inside of us to
stop our own suffering and perhaps to help stop the suffering of others. In
addition, the four divine abodes offer teachings regarding loving-kindness
compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity
if, within these cultural constructs there exists already, a framework for
alleviating emotional, mental and physical suffering, why then, are we as
clinicians trying to reinvent the wheel by adapting behavioral models of
interventions that were developed for a westernized society devoid of authentic
culture. Maybe we need to consider that the culture of those we serve may have
built-in infrastructure for healing mental health issues. Perhaps we are conceptualizing the
mental health of our minority clients incorrectly. Perhaps we, as a profession,
are in need of healing of our limiting beliefs about what can be effective for
treating mental illness of marginalized populations. Perhaps these are
considerations that need to be further explored.

Psyched about Books and Movies
Welcome to "Psyched about Books and Movies!" Each month we include a book or movie review by one of our readers. Please see below guidelines on submitting a review. Happy reading!
Title: Inside Out Rated: PG Released: 2015 Reviewer:Heather Blessing, LMFT Review: I am a sucker for kids' movies, but was really surprised at how therapeutic this movie is. It shows how emotions can be felt at the same time. How all of the emotions interact in different events and most importantly that it is ok not to be happy all of the time. It even showed that sadness can actually create happy memories through bonding with the ones you love when they try to help you get through a sad time. I recommend having clients that are struggling to understand their feelings watch this movie. I got plush dolls of the characters in the movie and it has worked better than my feelings charts with children, adolescents and surprisingly adults.

Time Saving Recipe
Dry Rub Chicken Don't blink it will be that easy and quick. Get a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (size depends on how many you are cooking for - it doesn't matter) In the spices isle of the supermarket find the different dry rubs. Get one to three jars of dry rub that sound like something you would like. I suggest 2 that sound like they might go together. At home pour some of each jar of dry rub into a bowl and mix. Now coat your chicken. It can be done just before you cook them for a lighter flavor or sit all day in the refrigerator for a deeper flavor. On a Grill - grill each side for about 10 minutes (total of 20 minutes) check to make sure it is completely cooked and you now have yummy dry rub chicken. Play with the different kind of dry rub to make different flavors.
