Resilience Warriors: Self-Care to Rebuild After the Storm Webinar  
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 1:00 PM ET (ET) - 2:00 PM ET (ET)

Dealing with change is the foundation of many helping professions. 2020 has brought a plethora of challenges and as front-line healthcare workers, we have experienced, heard, and been exposed not only to our own stress and change, but the distress our clients bring to our work. It's helpful to understand the behaviors that contribute to burnout and to identify things we can do to care for ourselves. This webinar will explore what we've learned from research about the ways we can identify risk factors for burnout, ways to increase self-care, and attendees will learn culturally informed information about Hozho.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Learn the poor self-care deadly dozen.
  2. Review the benefits of self-care in your daily personal and professional life.
  3. Learn about the Navajo wellness philosophy Hozho and how you might bring some of it into your self-care regime.

Preventing Divorce Wars and Protecting Children Webinar  
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 1:00 PM ET (ET) - 2:00 PM ET (ET)
Virtual

Divorce wars damage families and can cause serious harm to children. Decades after Wallerstein and Kelly’s (1980) original research demonstrated the extent to which conflict during divorce can cause damage to children, custody battles, and divorce wars rage on in the court system. Many people remain unaware that there are healthier ways to accomplish family reorganization, which can help stabilize family dynamics and preserve relationships. In divorce mediation, a neutral mediator helps spouses respectfully reach mutual agreements on all divorce issues – dividing assets and debts, spousal support, and all parenting issues -- without ever going to court. Resolving divorce and child custody issues in mediation reduces conflict to the great benefit of children. By lowering conflict, spouses significantly reduce the time and cost of their divorce process and reduce emotional stress for everyone involved. Mediation lays a foundation for healthy co-parenting after divorce. 

Preventing Divorce Wars and Protecting Children is an energetic, highly interactive program that encourages maximum audience participation. We will explain the divorce mediation process – from beginning to end – and discuss the many ways in which mediation supports a healthy family system evolution during and after divorce. Participants will develop an understanding of how mediation compares to litigation in court. Arizona divorce and child joint legal decision-making law (formerly referred to as ‘child custody’) essentials will be covered so that Counselors have a clear understanding of the law. Participants will understand the “client-centered” mediation process, including mediation research, mediation neutrality, confidentiality, ethics, and the concept of interest-based negotiation. Participants will learn about the parallel between therapeutic and dispute resolution interventions (normalizing, reflective listening, reframing, face-saving, etc.) and gain additional conflict management skills. Participants will learn about child coping behaviors during separation and divorce and how to therapeutically diffuse child custody battles when working with parents.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how mediation supports healthy family systems evolution.
  2. Understand the divorce mediation process and how it compares to litigating a divorce in court. 
  3. Understand Arizona divorce and child joint legal decision-making laws.
  4. Understand client-centered mediation.
  5. Understand how to apply conflict resolution skills to manage disputes. 
  6. Normalize common child coping behaviors to diffuse conflict that commonly results in child custody battles.
