Letter from the Board

March 1, 2017

Hello {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name}
We are excited and honored to, again, receive recognition at the
CAMFT Chapter Leadership Conference this year.  However, this year, we were the first to be presented the top award for both categories.  Our Past President, Patricia Saint James, won "Outstanding Chapter Leader Award" for her tireless dedication and performance.  On behalf of SVC, thank you, Patricia.

As a result of Patricia's leadership and our Board taking bold cost-saving and streamlining measures, our chapter earned the "Chapter Excellence Award" in the category of "Chapter Management" at the conference.  The award added $250 to our reserves.  What an amazing team!  In the spirit of competition, they set the bar for us this year that we aim to surpass.

You may read the statements submitted for the CAMFT awards here http://svccamft.org/Chapter-Excellence-Awards.

This month we continue with our goal to create a strategic plan to expand offerings and to continue to build value for our membership.  As part of our tradition, we continue with our monthly workshops and meetings for our members. Friday the 3000 Club will be hosting a one hour presentation by Kim Johnson, LCSW on EMDR Basics.  Afterward, our monthly workshop will host Lisa Larson, LMFT, who will present on Brainspotting which will include a live demonstration of how Brainspotting works.  We look forward to seeing you there.

  February Presentation Summary

Addiction: The Layers and Complexities of Treatment (6 CEs)

Presenter: Jon Daily, LCSW, CADC II


Jon Daily is a celeb.  He’s the Founder and Clinical Director for Recovery Happens Counseling Services, which has four locations between Walnut Creek and Roseville.  He’s had a storied career as an author, lecturer, and instructor, specializing in various aspects of addiction.  He’s been interviewed on TV & radio innumerable times, published articles, and has traveled all over to give trainings and lectures.  He’s also an addict.  His addiction story began at age 12 – he was in the 6th grade when his “world became centered around substances.”  He struggled for years in a cycle of delinquency – he was a juvenile runaway, spent time at a Boy’s Ranch, was homeless, was arrested … he was an odds-on favorite to end up where numerous family members and friends of his had ended up: dead from overdose, addiction, or suicide.  Fortunately, he met a therapist who provided an environment of healing, became clean and sober, and then feverishly schooled himself in all aspects of substance use/abuse so that he could assist others in avoiding addiction and death.  Jon subscribes to the notion that the roots of behavioral health and substance abuse are one and the same, manifested as Affect Dysregulation Disorder [ADD].  Jon explained that Affect Regulation depends on a complementary intersection of one’s chemistry, psychology, neurophysiology, and relationships.  ADD, on the other hand, evolves from multigenerational patterns of insecure attachment, which get passed on from father to son [a la “Cat’s in the Cradle”].  When dysregulation is present, a cycle of “Misattunement” takes place and presents as a familial lack of communication, wherein the child doesn’t feel nurtured or seen or heard or felt by his/her caregiver.   Without a secure attachment from his caregiver ( see Bowlby), ‘Little Tommy’ responds “positively to an Other who DOES respond to his physical/emotional needs, such as a biker, drug dealer, pimp, gang member, or older teen.”  Such individuals inhabit Tommy’s life, become his family, and bad things follow.  Couple this environmental experience with Tommy’s neurological predisposition for addiction per generations of substance use and misattuned caregiver behaviors, and you get the etiology of Affect Dysregulation Disorder. 

But not to despair: Jon also provided therapeutic interventions that involved “decreasing denial and increasing motivation” toward severing “the pathological relationship to intoxication, so as to start the work to develop [Tommy’s] capacity for attachment and regulation.”

Jon also provided alarming statistics about the increased potency and popularity of marijuana. Did you know that a teen is now “more likely to use marijuana for the first time over alcohol or nicotine”?  Seven percent of seniors smoke daily, despite the risk it poses to their still-underdeveloped prefrontal cortexes.  Additionally, cannabis edibles are sold to look like sweets and cookies [“Want some candy, little girl?”], they metabolize differently than inhaled THC, create a more intense high, are inconsistently dosed, and are often over-used.  Jon avoided launching into an extended debate on Prop 64, but stated the following: “You can’t be pro Prop 64 and pro Mental Health” – until age 25, chemical alterations prompt a user to be more susceptible to depression and impulsivity, among other things.

Other memorable tidbits:

  • ·      “If we expect clients to move forward on their journeys, we are obligated as clinicians to do our own work, as well.”
  • ·      “As a clinician, be okay with slowing down; then slow down a little bit more.”
  • ·      “Addicts don’t hit bottom until the system around them does.”
  • ·      “Addiction is a consequence of, and solution for, failed relationships.”
  • ·      “At what age should we start talking about drugs? How about three.”
  • ·      “Adolescent behaviors aren’t a result of family dynamics; they are a result of 100 years of generational patterns.”

Jon also addressed trauma, wax dabs/budders, family boundaries, and the locus coeruleus.  He imparted a tremendous amount of knowledge and wisdom, only fully appreciated if one had attended the whole day. He also displayed tremendous courage in disclosing his personal struggles with a recurring illness that hasn’t yet fully resolved, and I know that all seventy of us in the room said a little prayer or meditation of hope toward his recovery so that he might continue his crusade to save the lives of others.

Workshop Information:

"Brainspotting" is a powerful, brain-based trauma therapy that bridges the gap between the mind and the body. Brainspotting accesses the deepest regions of the brain where traumatized clients store their traumas and survival terror. Brainspotting opens up a neurophysiological healing vortex that transforms the traumatized in a miraculous way. It works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trauma, dissociation, anxiety, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma, which include chronic anxiety, insomnia, and numbing are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy. This is because the brain becomes overwhelmed and is unable to process verbal information about the traumatic events. "Brainspotting" was voted the most effective trauma treatment by the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre after a five year study comparing over 25 therapeutic modalities. The parents rated it first in it's effectiveness in treating the loss of their young children. 

This presentation teaches participants to metrically measure the efficacy of each session with their clients every session so it is very clear if the client is benefiting or not. It also will help the attendees stay abreast of the most recent brain-based breakthroughs in treating clients with PTSD. This presentation underscores principles of complete non-judgment and compassion for each and every client.

Learning Objectives:

2.  Understand the Basic Principles of Brainspotting

3.  Integrate these principles into your treatment plans for your traumatized clients

Presenter Bio:
Lisa Larson has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the past nineteen years. After seven years in private practice doing Solution Focused therapy or "talk therapy", Lisa experienced a traumatic event that transformed the course of her life as well as her therapeutic orientation. Within one three week period, both Lisa and her teenage son flat lined (clinically died) both from anaphylactic shock from two different allergic reactions. (Both have recovered). Lisa was acutely traumatized and found that no amount of talk therapy brought relief. It was only after two sessions of EMDR that she was back to being herself.

Inspired, Lisa began to train in the most powerful trauma modalities available. After being trained by the founder of EMDR she met and trained with one of the top EMDR trainers and her colleague, Dr. David Grand. Dr Grand founded “Brainspotting” after finding that fixed eye positions in his EMDR work dramatically increased the effectiveness of his trauma therapy. Lisa immediately recognized the powerful neurophysiological healing vortex Brainspotting taps into as she saw her severely traumatized clients heal quickly and permanently. She learned that her years as a talk therapist were missing the most crucial piece required to heal those with unresolved trauma, the body. Those with complex trauma and PTSD are enslaved by their own neurophysiology. True healing requires releasing the individual from the trapped body memories that trigger chronic fight/ flight or numb/ freeze responses. If left unresolved, the ensuing negative behavioral and thought patterns can cripple the traumatized for the rest of their lives.

A dream was born in Lisa. She was determined to do something about the unnecessary suffering of the traumatized. She opened Pacific Counseling and Trauma Center in 2012 and Pacific Trauma Specialists, a non-profit dedicated to offering cutting edge trauma therapy regardless of ability to pay. Lisa became a Brainspotting Trainer to teach other therapists how to bring lasting relief to their traumatized clients. She is passionate about teaching Brainspotting and letting the world know that trauma and PTSD are not something you have to live with. Brainspotting makes freedom, peace and joy possible for even the most severely traumatized.

Special Feature

It was never about bathrooms

By Heather Blessing, LMFT 

About 50 years ago there were separate bathrooms for whites and "coloreds" (and water fountains, dining areas, waiting rooms, hotel entries, etc.)  Now there is a new bathroom argument going on.  We see it in the news and most people have some opinion.  My mother just watched "Hidden Figures" (about black female engineers working for NASA).  She told me that at one point one of the engineers explained that the bathroom she had to use was all the way in the other building.  This is how it is now with many kids that are transgender in schools.  Most K-12 schools have the office at the front of the school with the nurse's offices.  Many of these kids have to go from classrooms that are far from the office to the office to use the restroom and get to class far from the office in the 4-5 minute passing period. 

Most high schools no longer have breaks except for a short lunch period (my son's school had 4 minute passing periods between each of the 7 periods except for lunch which was 26 minutes long.  His campus had 7 buildings with 2 of them 2 stories and 2 of them 3 stories and near the office was the theater, library, computer center and then the quad.  All classrooms were at the back of the school.  I state this because it is similar to many high schools and many people really don't understand the logistics of being told that you must only use the nurse's office bathroom and you are not allowed to be tardy to class.

This means that many of the kids that are transgender that I see refuse to eat or drink at school so they don't have to use the restroom from about 7am to 3pm.  All of this is under the thought process that people who are transgender might be faking it just to have an excuse to get a peep show.  There is so little logic in this idea.  So let me take a moment to explain why I think this way.

Did you know that transgender people have been around for a long time?  The first "SRS - Sexual Reassignment Surgeries" were done over 60 years ago.  And before that many were around that we did not even know but they dressed and acted like the other gender.  Another misconception is that transgender goes many directions.  The most publicized ones are male to female but there are also female to male and then those who are just something somewhere in between or neither. 

The North Carolina law states that people that are transgender need to use the restroom of the gender designated on their birth certificate.  Note that under this policy this is what legally is supposed to happen.  If the idea is to protect the women using the women's restroom, how do you feel about the transgender man in the women's restroom?

Look at the above picture - and ask yourself if they were using the bathrooms that match their appearance, how would you even know they are transgender?

My husband is transgender and I can tell you, if he walked into a women's restroom, people would complain.

Now on to "but some pervert might pretend to be trans (usually talking about a boy or a man putting on a dress) to have an excuse to have a peep show."  "Being Trans" is not as simple as throwing on a dress.  First there is a diagnosis, then there are steps someone who is transgender take to match their outside appearance with their internal gender.  There may be coming out to those around you, risking losing family, friends and employment.  Also there are law on the books that if ANYONE of ANY GENDER violates you in a bathroom (or other such places) they will be arrested.  This means if I (a woman) go into the women's bathroom and peek under the stall - I can be arrested for it so it really doesn't matter if I were a man wearing a dress and sneaking in or just me getting a peep show - that is illegal in both cases the person can be arrested.

At school it is really even less likely someone would fake it.  To go to the school administration, with a doctor's dx that you are suffering for gender dysphoria, to have your name and your pronouns changed and to face ridicule by your classmates, really doesn't make sense to get a peep show.  A boy does not show up in a dress one day, go into the girl's bathroom and get to claim they are transgender, it is a much longer and emotional process.

So in reality what is the real issue, since really it is not about safety or using the excuse one is trans to peep at other people.  It is that we are uncomfortable about something we don't understand and it is easier to categorize it as other and find a way to make the other seem dangerous to prove our point.

50+ years ago, using the bathroom that a "colored" person used could give you diseases as they were unclean animals.  It was for everyone's safety that they had separate bathrooms.  So now, despite never having any reported issues of transgender people committing crimes in the bathrooms or any perverts trying to get away with things because they claim they are transgender or really the opposite sex in all of history that we have shared the bathrooms with them, we have decided that they are dangerous and we must protect others from them.

Every day we use public restrooms with people who are convicted murderers, pedophiles, robbers, arsonists that have been released.  We don't ask for background checks on them to use the bathroom nor do they have a convicts bathroom.  I mean wouldn't it make more sense to have a separate bathroom for stalkers or sexual predators?  But there is no way to check and in reality there is no way to check to make sure that everyone is in the bathroom of their birth in public restrooms unless the person outs themselves as transgender.

As a woman who has spent 45 years using public restrooms, I can honestly say I have never seen private parts of anyone appropriately using the restroom (now there was that one drunk lady at the bar who was showing us all what her boyfriend was missing as she stripped in the bathroom). 

The reason I decided to write this article is one of the 3rd grade girls in my practice that is transgender, just had the school tell us since we had gotten her the ability to use the girls bathroom under Title IX, that was now no longer valid, and she needs to use the nurse's bathroom.  She had gained several new girlfriends since the beginning of the year and they spend recess doing their hair in the bathroom.  None of the girls knows about her past so now they don't understand why she cannot do hair with them anymore.  It breaks my heart because we had worked so hard for her to feel safe and happy as she was suicidal only 2 years ago. 

I know some of you will not agree with my article, but this is just my personal viewpoint (and does not reflect upon SVC-CAMFT) based on my personal experience and my practice.  I welcome other viewpoints and will gladly print them in the newsletters.

Katie Couric did a good job on this documentary special.  She covered a lot of subject matter and answered common questions and issues well.  She did a great job having explained to her the difference between sexuality and gender.  Many misconceptions were discussed and real people in in different areas of gender were interviewed to allow us to see the world through a different filter.  Even the topic of intersexed was discussed.
