Building Blocks to Strong Stepfamilies: A presentation for professionals by C.J. Johnson, LCSW, LMHP

 

Friday, June 23
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Region V Systems
1645 N Street

Stepfamily dynamics inadvertently place barriers in promoting strengths within the family system. These barriers, particularly in stepfamilies, require a concerted effort to overcome. When accomplished strengths can be established through a variety of strategies.

 

This workshop will review a variety of strategies that participants can offer to stepfamilies to promote healthy strengths within their family system. Participants will also learn how to assess strengths that are already present and areas that require further growth.   Participants will learn how to work with clients to establish their own “user’s manual” to address needs specific to their family situation and develop a template to promote family strengths.

ADULT Mental Health First Aid


This 8-hour training course is designed to give you key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis.  Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and addictions.

The evidence behind MHFA demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

The mission of QPR is to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.  QPR will train people to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.

Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
