Workshop I: September 12, 2020

Topic: Creating Healthy Intimacy & Cross Addiction

Presented by Oren Matteson, LCPC, CSAT
Oren is the Vice President & Clinical Director of Millennium Counseling Center. He has been a CSAT since 2009. Prior to Millennium, Oren worked for nine years in residential and out-patient psychiatric facilities for adolescents. Oren’s professional passions include helping individuals navigate an emotionally healthy life by developing a loving relationship with self and learning the value of vulnerability.
Oren’s work concentrates on healing traumatic wounds and embracing empathy and compassion through the recovery process. Oren’s work has helped many individuals discover what healthy intimacy is and has given them the ability to live honest and authentic lives. Oren believes that a connection to one’s feelings is the cornerstone for healthy living.
Learning Objectives:
To better understand process addictions for clients who also identify with substance use disorder; explore support options; learn how to conduct process addiction assessments; learn typical resistance and possible solutions; expand the scope of “what is addiction” and how to bring that into a therapeutic environment.

Workshop II: September 26, 2020

Topic: Limbic Revision: Trauma Intensive Course

Presented by Lisa Lackey, LCPC, CSAT, CMAT, EMDR II
Lisa has worked in the field of addiction and trauma since 1994. Lisa and her husband co-founded Insideout Living, Inc. in 1999. Lisa and her spouse envisioned a clinical practice that would help people make sense of parts of their lives that were confusing, overwhelming and painful. Lisa believes that trauma healing comes from finally completing an emotional experience that may have only been completed as a physical experience long ago. Through compassion, cutting edge treatment modalities and a great team, Lisa believes that life can change. She helps people understand their own history and how it currently informs the present. She understands individuals inadvertently “trap” parts of their life experience and helps clients understand why these patterns were formed. Lisa supports clients to begin to form new patterns and believes they can begin to make small shifts that will lead to bigger changes. This process gives access to pain and trauma that are “stuck”, where the feelings can be released. “Limbic re-visioning” is about rewiring the neural structure of a person who has suffered trauma or emotional neglect.
Lisa is driven by the passion to support individuals as they journey toward resolution from the inside out. Her clinical expertise is in the treatment of trauma and substance use disorders.
Lisa has two master’s degrees, one in education from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary at Northwestern University and the other in counseling from National-Louis University. Lisa has worked as a pastor; acts as a leadership development consultant; and a public speaker in a variety of venues. She loves learning and teaching. Lisa is also a Certified Multiple Addictions Therapist (CMAT). She has had training in Somatic Transformation, and she is a Level II EMDR therapist. Lisa’s passion for the work she does makes her a dynamic and compassionate therapist, as well as an engaging speaker who connects easily with individuals and large audiences.
Learning Objectives:
Recognize the traumatic impact of multiple addictions; identify unique trauma responses that individuals undergo; list ways for clients to identify, create and maintain boundaries for personal healing.

Workshop V: November 7, 2020

Topic: Intimate Partner Violence

Presented by Beth Klieger, LCSW
Presented by Beth Klieger, LCSW Beth Klieger is the Outreach Services Coordinator at Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC), the first Domestic Violence (DV) Agency to open a shelter in the city of Chicago. Beth graduated with her bachelor’s in social work (BSW) from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2014. She completed her master’s degree in social work (MSW) at University of Illinois in 2015 and obtained her clinical social work license (LCSW) in October of 2017.
Over the past six years, Beth has an extensive history working with both children and adults who have experienced trauma and abuse. Beth has experience providing direct clinical services to individuals & families. She conducts clinical consultations on trauma informed practice and facilitates trainings on ways to prevent/intervene safely with Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). She is an advocate for system level change.
In Beth’s current position, she supervises CAWC’s outreach programs. These include the Hospital Crisis Intervention Project (HCIP), which houses counselors on-site at Cook County Health’s Stroger Hospital and Northwestern’s Prentice Hospitals where counselors provide crisis support to survivors of IPV when they are receiving medical care. She also provides services for Haymarket Center and CAWC’s legal advocacy program (LAP). Beth facilities trainings with a variety of disciplines in effort to create awareness of statistics of IPV, dynamics of IPV, and how, in their role, they can help prevent and intervene. In Beth’s previous role she worked at a private child welfare agency in Chicago. She piloted a clinical program to meet the needs of youth in care who were discharged from psychiatric inpatient settings. Beth’s role was to support the caregiving team through psychoeducation on trauma and therapeutic parenting. In November of 2019, Illinois DCFS create funding to design the program and enhance clinical community support, based on the data collected.
Intimate Partner Violence affects millions of women and men in the USA every day. According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 10 men in the U.S.A. experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime; and reported some form of IPV-related impact. In effort to lower the statistics, Beth provides education regarding the dynamics and interventions used to safely support survivors. CAWC’s mission is to end domestic violence. Part of accomplishing this mission is education and training for a variety of disciplines. The goal for clinicians who attend this workshop is to learn valuable information and leave with tangible tools/skills to meet the needs of their clients who are survivors of IPV.
Learning Objectives:
The beginning of this workshop is designed to teach the prevalence of IPV and the dynamics of IPV; clinicians will be learning about the severity of this issue and how to recognize some of the symptoms they may see in their practice/setting; clinicians will learn about the intersection between IPV and substance use disorder.
The second half of the workshop, clinicians will learn ways to address, prevent, and intervene to help increase the safety of their clients who are experiencing IPV and how to incorporate this. knowledge into their practice setting; clinicians will also learn about resources in the City of Chicago and Cook County to gain knowledge of referral for resources clinicians can use for a client who is a survivor of IPV.
