    Live webinar - two 10 minute breaks

    Mental health providers are on the front lines of suicide prevention efforts, and may well encounter changes in youth behaviors, attitudes, academic performance, or social interactions which may signal symptoms of depression, substance misuse, and/or other risk factors which may lead to suicide. The Connect Program is a unique community-based prevention training designed to increase the competence of mental health providers to promote suicide prevention, recognize individuals at risk, and respond to individuals who are thinking about or who have attempted suicide.

  • Moving Toward Retirement (9/25/2020 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM)

    Moving Toward Retirement


    Barbara Meyers, LICSW

    Two (2) Category A Clinical CEUs are pending approval from NASW NH.

    Retirement is a life stage event complete with gains and losses. When a clinician retires, clients are impacted and there are multiple opportunities to explore the gains and losses for them as well. Thus hour and one-half workshop is designed to help private practice clinicians anticipating retirement to explore the impact of retirement both for them selves and their clients. Throughout the emphasis will be on self-care and the ethical dimensions to saying “goodbye.” There will be time for both discussion and didactic information regarding the process.

    Topics will include:

    a. Self-care as one negotiates closing a practice;

    b. Preparation for post-retirement life;

    c. The ethical dimensions of terminating with clients; and

    d. Tools and techniques for good endings in preparation for new beginnings.

    Learning Objectives

    At the close of this workshop, participants will be able to:

    a. List ways for self-care in preparation for the loss of one’s professional life;

    b. Understand the risks to identity post-retirement and further self-care;

    c. State the ethical dimensions of terminating with clients;

    d. List tools and techniques for good endings;

    A live webinar - 2 Clinical Contact Hours - for social workers and allied professionals

    About this Event

    Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice - Part II

    Presenter: Keita Annie Whitten Foster BSW, MSW LCSW, SEP

    Founder: Ready, Set THrive!, The Harriet Tubman Movement Coalition of Maine, and Community Dialogues on Racism as a Public Health Crisis in the Midst of COVID-19

    2 Clinical Contact Hours approved by NASW Maine

    “Understanding racism and white supremacy are endemic to the development of all authentic relations between humans, including humans and nature. My life work has become about cultivating capacity, spirit, compassion, resiliency, grace, perseverance, and healing. Our stories are unique, yet we are not alone. There is no hierarchy of pain or suffering. The challenge is recognizing how these experiences continue to shape our current understandings and relationships about ourselves and each other so we can co-create authentic social engagement for all our relations.

    ~Keita Annie Whitten Foster

    Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice Part II.

    This is not a traditional workshop. This is an experience designed to engage you in a somatic exploration. Part one introduced broad brush strokes introducing concepts like “racialized emotional fragility,”, and how to recognize flight, fright, freeze, and fawn as racialized emotional fragility within your body. In part II, participants will build on concepts briefly explored and practiced in part one in. Part II will hold space for you to learn how to (and practice) develop a somatic understanding (capacity) for navigating the visceral effects of race. This practice is foundational for the ability to help move you through the zones of fear, learning, and growth, which hinder your process in becoming an anti-racist practitioner.
