Trauma-Informed Care for Diverse Populations: CAC / LAC Class
Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute – Trauma-Informed Care for Diverse Populations: Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program "Specializing in OBH Pathway 2 Addiction Counselor Classes for Mental Health Professionals Working on or with a Clinical Master's or Doctoral Degree" Training Description: Trauma-informed counseling practice fundamentally shifts the focus of clinical care from a pathological framework set on finding out what is wrong with clients to that of understanding what happened to them to make certain symptom sets adaptive. This class introduces addiction counselors and other mental health professionals to the concept of trauma-informed care, an approach that is being adopted more frequently within the human services fields based upon an increased awareness of the ways in which trauma impacts functioning. It also describes and defines what trauma-informed care is and illuminates ways in which a traditional treatment setting can be modified to increase the sense of safety experienced by clients in treatment along the continuum of care. Additionally, class participants learn how to incorporate trauma-informed practices into treatment with diverse populations, such as military veterans, women, people with co-occurring disorders, and other groups. Although trauma treatment approaches are considered and various community resources presented, this class is not designed to teach how to do trauma specific treatment. Training Objectives: Participants in this Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) Approved training learn: 1) important terms and concepts related to trauma-informed care; 2) the connection between addictive behaviors, victimization/violence, and trauma; 3) principles and philosophy of trauma-informed care; 4) strategies that support creating a "safe-enough" clinical environment; 5) the differences between trauma-informed, trauma-sensitive, and trauma-specific approaches; 6) the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria of PTSD and how that relates to non-DSM conceptualizations such as complex trauma and developmental trauma disorder; 7) how a trauma-informed approach can be applied to various treatment settings using the SAMHSA guidelines; and 8) ways to intgrate a trauma-informed approach into the collaborative care team. NOTE: This training is approved by the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) for CAC/LAC credentialing with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Training Instructor: Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN, CACIII, MAC, ACS, is the Training Director for the Center for Professional Development at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute and is an approved Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) Addiction Counselor Trainer as well as a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Nurse (RN), Certified Addiction Counselor, Level III (CACIII), Master Addiction Counselor (MAC), Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP), and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS).

The Wailin' Jennys - Second Show Added at Boulder Theater
Boulder Theater – SECOND SHOW ADDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND! THE WAILIN’ JENNYS BOULDER THEATER Monday, November 20, 2017 Doors: 7:00 pm | Show: 8:00 pm Tickets on sale NOW at www.bouldertheater.com $35.00-$40.00 Reserved Seats plus applicable service charges Z2 Entertainment is thrilled to announce a second performance for The Wailin’ Jennys on Monday, November 20th at the Boulder Theater. Tickets are on sale now! The November 19th performance is sold out! The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound. Starting as a happy accident of solo singer/songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today’s most beloved international folk acts. Founding members Moody and Mehta along with New York-based Masse continue to create some of the most exciting music on the folk-roots scene, stepping up their musical game with each critically lauded recording and thrilling audiences with their renowned live performances. In 2004, The Wailin’ Jennys released their first full-length album 40 Days to great critical acclaim, netting a 2005 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. Bolstered by their frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor’s public radio show A Prairie Home Companion, The Jennys exploded onto the roots music scene, performing at packed venues across the Canada, the U.S. and throughout the world. The Jennys’ sophomore album, 2006’s Firecracker, served as a powerful follow-up to their career-making debut. Artistically, the record found The Jennys stepping out of the folk realm and into the world of alt-country, pop and rock. Garnering much attention, it was nominated for a Juno Award and won a 2007 Folk Alliance Award for Contemporary Release of the Year. Firecracker had legs, spending over 56 weeks on the Billboard charts. The trio’s 2009 release, Live at Mauch Chunk Opera House, also spent over a year on the Billboard bluegrass charts. That landmark live album bottled the lightning of The Jennys’ live performances with show-stopping harmonies, impressive instrumental prowess, breathtaking songs and, of course, witty stage banter. For their latest album, 2011’s Juno-winning Bright Morning Stars, The Wailin’ Jennys joined the ranks of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris and recorded with award-winning producer Mark Howard. Co-produced by frequent Jennys collaborator and Juno Award-nominated David Travers-Smith, the album combines fresh and innovative sounds with the band’s signature harmonies — a perfect mix of Americana, pop and traditional folk that is destined to be a modern classic. Although known primarily as an acoustic outfit, The Wailin’ Jennys have a diverse musical background that has shaped their musical sensibilities. Soprano Ruth Moody (vocals, guitar, accordion, banjo, bodhrán) is a classically trained vocalist and pianist with a burgeoning solo career. She made a splash in 2010 with the Juno-nominated The Garden which was followed up with 2013’s gorgeous These Wilder Things. She’s an accomplished, versatile singer of traditional and Celtic music and as the former lead singer of Juno-nominated roots band Scruj MacDuhk. Mezzo Nicky Mehta (vocals, guitar, harmonica, drums, ukulele), a classically trained dancer raised on ’70s a.m. radio and heavily influenced by alternative pop, was nominated for a Canadian Indie Music Award for her striking debut solo album, 2002’s Weather Vane. In July 2009 she became the proud mother to twin boys, Beck and Finn. Alto Heather Masse (vocals, upright bass) is a Jazz Voice graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, who has performed in Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing, Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings and is a regular guest on A Prairie Home Companion. She has also toured with her own band, supporting her 2009 Red House release Bird Song. Her latest, 2013’s Lock My Heart, is is an inspired album of jazz standards and originals with legendary pianist Dick Hyman. With their varying backgrounds, each of the Jennys is unique in their individual expression. Together they forge a unified folk-pop sound — all delivered with the irresistible vocal power of three. How to Get Tickets Tickets available at Boulder Theater Box Office, by phone at (303)-786-7030 or online at http://www.bouldertheater.com. The Lounge at the Boulder Theater is now open Tuesday – Saturday and on event nights from 5:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. The Lounge at the Boulder Theater specializes in locally sourced small plates, fine wines, craft cocktails and microbrews.
