Mary NurrieStearns, LCSW, RYT

Summary:

Teach your clients how to lower intense emotions and cultivate emotional resiliency with EFT. An evidenced based intervention, EFT is easy to learn and to utilize clinically to help clients generally reduce emotional intensity and experience emotions within the window of tolerance. It is a protocol for clients to:
1) express emotions and/or physical sensations
2) while tapping on acupressure points that reduce cortisol
3) while expressing some agreed upon statement of self – acceptance

EFT is effective for teaching emotional resilience skills, lowering anxiety and PTSD, managing cravings and cultivating self-acceptance. It is an exposure therapy combined with somatic and cognitive components. It is effective in individual and group therapy settings.

Learning objectives:
Learn what EFT is, including the set up statement and tapping protocol.
Learn how to use in clinical settings for emotional regulation
Review the evidence based science behind EFT
Deepen your understanding of EFT with clinical examples of utilizing EFT
Practice EFT on yourself to learn it

Understanding Suicide to Prevent Suicide

E. David Klonsky, Ph.D.

REGISTRATION OPEN NOW

Summary:

Suicide, suicide attempts, and suicidal ideation are difficult to predict and prevent. A practical, evidence-based explanation for suicide would not only empower us to understand and reduce our clients’ suicide risk, but help our clients build lives worth living. In this presentation and workshop, I will: a) describe a framework to help psychologists distinguish causes of suicide ideation from causes of suicide attempts, b) present an evidence-based, actionable explanation for suicide that is positioned within this framework, and c) utilize case examples and audience interaction/discussion to illustrate the utility of these perspectives for treating suicide risk in clinical practice. Specific questions to be addressed include what motivates suicide, why some (but not most) people with suicide ideation make suicide attempts, and how psychologists can use this knowledge to understand and reduce clients’ risk for suicide.

Learning objectives:

      • Identify the most common motivations for suicide
      • Utilize current suicide theory to better understand and treat their clients’ suicide risk
      • Identify factors that facilitate progression from suicide ideation to suicide attempts

Case Conceptualization and Treatment Planning from Historical Trauma and Intergenerational Trauma Perspectives

Lisa Cromer, Ph.D.

Summary:

While historical and intergenerational trauma often intersect, the two constructs are theoretically distinct. Historical trauma is mass trauma perpetrated against a group of people because of some aspect of their identity; historical trauma is collective and can impact our concepts of self, whether or not specific aspects of trauma are re-experienced over time and across generations. Intergenerational trauma on the other hand, is about how trauma is passed down within the family such that the child experiences their own trauma. In this workshop, we disentangle the mechanisms of trauma transmission, and identify multiple pathways to healing. A theoretical model that examines unique contributions of historical context versus family systems, can give the clinician insight into mechanisms of change and impact that inform treatment best practices and promote the healing process. This workshop will differentiate and identify unique predisposing, precipitating, perpetuating, and protective factors for case conceptualization. An individual case will be presented to facilitate the translation of case conceptualization to treatment planning, incorporating both historical and intergenerational trauma perspectives.

Learning objectives:
1. Differentiate and discuss the theoretical models of historical and intergenerational transmission of trauma.
2. Identify unique predisposing, precipitating, perpetuating, and protective factors that maintain and explain historical and intergenerational trauma.
3. Understand how to incorporate aspects of historical and intergenerational transmission of trauma into treatment planning.

COVID -19 updates: Parkside’s Response and Recent Changes to Patient Visitation

COVID -19 – Parkside’s response, patient visitation, etc.

If you have questions about COVID-19, or questions about testing, the Oklahoma State Department of Health has a COVID-19 hotline. Call 877-215-8336

If you are showing any sign of possible COVID-19 symptoms, please do not come into Parkside and do not go to an emergency room. Please contact your primary health care provider first. Your provider or a nurse will direct you. If you meet testing criteria, you will be directed to a local testing site.

Parkside is following the evolving COVID-19 situation closely and is prepared for any needed response. Parkside always maintains a robust infection control program and is prepared for emergencies.

Here are some of the steps Parkside is taking to manage the COVID-19:

Monitoring patients: Parkside is actively monitoring patients, staff and visitors to quickly identify those with travel-related risk factors or potential contact with infected people. We are disallowing visitors who are sick from visiting the hospital, as is always our practice during flu season.

Coordinating with public health officials: We are working closely with public health officials at the local, state and national levels to monitor the spread of the virus. Public health officials are providing guidance and Parkside is responding to protect the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff.

Supplies and facilities: Parkside is monitoring supplies like masks, hand sanitizer and other personal protective equipment and is proactively placing orders for additional supplies. Parkside’s Environmental Services Department is responding with additional cleaning and sanitation measures.

Telemedicine:We are expanding plans for telemedicine visits to assist in managing patient care when appropriate. Telemedicine is also available for inpatient assessments when indicated and can help prevent the spread of disease and prevent unnecessary travel.

Visitation and passes: The safety of our patients, their families, and our staff is of utmost importance at Parkside. Due to the increasing numbers of positive COVID-19 cases in Tulsa County, we have adopted increased safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our patient environment.

Parkside has discontinued all on-site visitation effective Monday, July 20. We are offering virtual visitation via Zoom teleconferencing, and will contact familes with details about the days, times, and procedures for these virtual visits. Many families are already using the Zoom app for family therapy participation.

Parkside Response to COVID-19

Parkside Response to COVID-19

With confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on the rise in Oklahoma and throughout the United States, Parkside is taking proactive steps to ensure the continued safety of our patients and staff.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, Parkside has implemented the following safety measures:

Active Monitoring:

  • Parkside is screening all patients, visitors, staff, and vendors who enter our buildings to identify any symptomatic people.

  • Parkside is enforcing a 14-day quarantine for all staff members (and those in their household) who have symptoms or have had illness or exposure to COVID-19.

Social Distancing:

  • Parkside staff practice social distancing by allocating 6 feet of physical separation between patients and other staff. We practice this by limiting group sizes, staggering unit schedules, and even coordinating the placement of furniture.

  • Parkside has asked all food delivery drivers and vendors to leave their deliveries at a specified delivery point away from the front desk.

  • We are building video conferencing on the units in the hopes of moving visitation to virtual visits instead of face to face, further reducing exposure.

Coordinating with Public Health Officials:

  • Parkside works closely with public health officials at the local, state, and national level to monitor the spread of the virus and enact timely preventive measures in response.

  • Parkside attends conference calls with the Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA), Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), Tulsa Health Department, and other teleconferences and webinars daily.

Supplies and Facilities:

  • Parkside is monitoring supplies like masks, hand sanitizer and other personal protective equipment and is proactively placing orders for additional supplies, if needed.

  • Parkside’s Environmental Services Department is responding with additional cleaning and sanitation measures.

Telemedicine:

  • All of our outpatient programs are now available fully online, from assessment to treatment. This will take place through secure video conferencing, allowing you or a loved one to receive needed treatment.

  • Telemedicine is also available for inpatient assessments to help prevent the spread of disease and unnecessary travel.

Visitation and Passes:

  • Parkside has limited the number of visitors to immediate family and one visitor per patient.

  • The Adult Unit is closed to visitation until further notice. Child and Adolescent Unit visitors are limited to immediate guardians only.

  • A visitor must follow prescribed protocol, including a short risk-assessment survey, a scan of the forehead to check temperature for any sign of fever, and use of hand sanitizer before visitation.

  • Visitation rooms are cleaned and sanitized after each use.

  • Child and Adolescent passes off campus have been suspended.

  • Parkside will limit the number of persons who accompany those coming for assessment or admission. Please help by not bringing any extra persons or family members.

Parkside Opens New Facility

Parkside Opens New Psychiatric Hospital and Outpatient Clinic

February 5, 2020 (Tulsa, OK) – Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic opened their new hospital this week that expands access to mental health care in Oklahoma. The new hospital, located at 1239 S. Trenton Ave., features 80 single-occupancy patient rooms for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing acute mental health crises.

“Our vision to expand world-class mental health care has finally come to fruition,” said Debra Jones, CEO of Parkside. “The new hospital now allows Parkside to increase the number of patients we treat each day and effectively remove barriers to treatment.”

Over the past year, Parkside was unable to serve 486 individuals due to unavailable beds because of patient gender.

“The new hospital serves a critical need for Oklahoma and even surrounding states,” said Darren Sanchez, Parkside’s Assessment and Referral Director. “In the past, our available beds for inpatient admissions were in semi-private rooms and not always open to the gender needs of presenting patients at any given time. However, 80 single-occupancy patient rooms in our new hospital now provides greater privacy for our patients while expanding access to care.”

Also, the new 114,500 square-foot hospital offers secure open-air balconies for each inpatient floor and provides enhanced space for groups and recreation. Combined with Parkside’s Adolescent Residential unit, Parkside now has 120 hospital beds operating in two separate buildings on the same campus.

Serving the community since 1959, Parkside’s mission is to provide outstanding mental health and support services. Parkside is a not-for-profit psychiatric hospital and outpatient clinic that has helped those coping with mental health and substance abuse problems since 1959. In 2018, 2,050 patients were admitted, and 1,305 patients received outpatient care.

Parkside’s Assessment and Referral service is now located at 1239 S. Trenton Ave., and can be reached 24 hours a day at (918) 588-8888. For more information about Parkside, visit www.parksideinc.org.
