2021 Professional Development Programs 

Membership in the IH Society will give you access to the three exciting programs below at our lowest rates!

Winter Program: Helping Our Community Be Well 

The Walter D. Miller, LCSW Lecture

I'm So Tired of This Pandemic!:

Therapeutic Interventions to Help Clients Sustain Self-Care for the Long Haul

A Panel Discussion About Therapists’ Experiences in Treating Clients During a Public Health Crisis


Moderator: Carla Beatrici, Psy.D.; Presenters: Ilinka Novakovic, LCSW, Bill Pasola, Psy.D., Felicia Owens, Psy.D., Carol Johnson, LCSW

Live Webinar: Saturday, January 30, 2021, 1:30-4:30 pm
3 CEs for Psychologists, Social Workers, and Professional Counselors

We are currently experiencing one of the worst public health crises, the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, creating unprecedented challenges for clients and therapists. A panel of mental health experts will share clinical examples of teens, adults, minority parents, and seniors, using insights from Inner Humanism psychotherapy to support their clients’ self-caretaking motives to make choices that protect themselves and others, and the compassionate interventions the panelists use to help their clients accept and mourn the significant losses brought on by the pandemic. The discussion also looks at the complexities therapists face in treating clients during a pandemic.  Topics include the importance of therapists striving to regulate their personal feelings and reactions when clients are not in a place to be able to discuss and explore their choices or be open to intervention when they are engaging in risky behaviors, and therapists must constructively mourn these personal losses in the service of maintaining the treatment alliance. 


Spring Program: Working Towards Anti-Racism

Racial Equity and Ethics:
An Interactive Workshop on Racial Equity and Anti-Racism
in Everyday Clinical, Ethical, and Organizational Situations
Brit Holmberg, MSW, LCSW, Marion Malcome, MSW, LCSW

4 CEs for Psychologists, Social Workers, and Professional Counselors (2 Ethics, 2 Cultural Competence)

This unique workshop examines contemporary ethical dilemmas using a racial equity lens.  Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how institutionalized racism impacts both organizational and clinical spaces, and the important role of practitioners in transforming such spaces. Using case studies, facilitators will educate participants on how to center the experiences and needs of Black, Indigenous and other People of Color (BIPOC) using an anti-racist framework. Participants will learn practical interventions and tools to respond effectively to these contexts with integrity, authenticity, and sensitivity while striving for racial equity. This is an interactive workshop that will involve breakout groups and experiential activities to help elucidate the content and practice
the concepts that are introduced, and participants will be required to complete a standard Informed Consent waver prior to attending.
