The New Social Anxiety:  New Perspectives and Treatment of Social Anxiety in the IGeneration and Beyond


DATE(S):
November 5, 2019
TIME:
8:30AM to 4:15 pm
LOCATION:
Oakton Community College
1600 E Golf Road
DesPlaines IL

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Therapists have to deal with a changing world of causes and symptoms of social anxiety. In 2008  the Internet was placed into our hands on phones for 24/7 electronic connection and the iGen became the first generation to grow up with the impact of social media profoundly affecting social learning. This seminar will take a look at the new social anxiety - from anxiety over ‘adulting’ due to lack of competence (genuine deficits of skills) to lack of confidence from lack of life experience. Constant exposure to negative self-comparison over social media also spurs anxiety that has interesting new names like FOMO (fear of missing out) that may or may not be grounded in reality. Other age groups experience this impact as well. Millenials, Gen X, parents, and the aging population are distinctly affected by the changes in social structure brought about by electronic connection. This practical and skills-based seminar will take a look at the changing landscape of causes for social anxiety and the impact on treatment.

Suicide            : Warning Signs, Treatment and Aftermath

TIME:
1:00PM to 4:00 pm
LOCATION:
Bridges to a New Day, nfp

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Suicide can be prevented and treated. It remains the leading cause of death in the U.S. The 2019 Illinois Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan calls for instituting: best practices, evidence-based practices and evidence inform practice. The presenter will discuss some of these practices as well as intervention that she had developed and used. The presentation will start with educating the attendees on the warning signs of suicide and how family members can miss these signs. Then the presentation will move to the treatment stage where we will discuss effective interventions that can be used to prevent suicide and which of those to use when working with an individual who has attempted to harm themselves. The remaining section will explore the aftermath of suicide. The presenter will provide information on how a person can be affected by another person's suicide even if they area just in their circle of acquaintance. While it is important for a suicidal person to have a strong support system, the presenter will point out why it is important for the support system to have people that they can turn to for help going through the process. However, many people spend their energy on helping others and little on how the suicide affected them. This presentation will be a combination of research in the area, best practice and the work of an experienced counselor.
