    Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) is an initiative in Ohio developed through a collaboration with the Ohio National Guard, Ohio Department of Veterans Services, Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, The Ohio State University, American Red Cross, OhioCares, the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University and the Center for Deployment Psychology.

    The mission of this program is to create an opportunity for licensed Ohio behavioral health providers to receive specific evidence-based training that will help them meet the needs of the state’s service members and their families. Providers receiving the training will then be listed on a comprehensive provider registry that will identify them as having completed this training in military issues. The registry will serve as a valuable resource for service members, families, and referring professionals in and outside the military.

    The training is free to participants, and continuing education units (CEUs) may be earned at no cost. For complete details see the attached brochure and visit http://www.starproviders.org.

    The training is divided into three tiers. Tier Two provides education about specific challenges and difficulties that are often associated with military service. Open to all service providers who have attended Tier One.

    Register today for one of the upcoming Tier Three training opportunities.

    Introduction to Expressive Arts Therapy: Strategies for Trauma-Focused Care

    Presented by Jamie Marich, Ph.D., LPCC-S, LICDC-CS, REAT, RYT-200

    June 5, 2019 (8:30am-4:00pm)

    Expressive arts therapy is an approach to psychotherapy with roots in indigenous cultures and a rich history of evolution within modalities such as Jungian, person-centered, and Gestalt psychotherapies. Defined by its emphasis on the multi-modal process of healing (exploring many combinations for creativity rather than relying on just one art form), the strategies of expressive arts psychotherapy can prove useful to trauma therapists practicing in a variety of modalities. In this workshop, participants are oriented to the fundamentals of expressive arts therapy history and approach. Participants are then instructed in how to facilitate an expressive arts process to teach the clinical concepts of grounding and managing emotional affect through widening the window of distress tolerance. Both grounding and widening the affective window of tolerance are vital practices in trauma-focused care. Participants will leave with an enhanced respect for how to foster client creativity in working with these concepts and their clinical intricacies. The role of creativity and the practice of making art are also discussed as mechanisms of action in processing traumatic experiences and promoting post-traumatic growth. A breakout segment for EMDR therapists allows EMDR therapists in attendance to discuss implementing expressive arts strategies in EMDR therapy Phases 2 and 7 with specific focus on how dual attention stimulus can be used to strengthen connection to expressive/creative resources. The great volume of writing and case material on using creativity to developmentally tailor the standard EMDR protocol for children is also reviewed and referenced in this discussion. Participants will brainstorm how to implement content from the overall workshop to EMDR therapy case conceptualization and treatment planning within the scope of the AIP model.

    My name is Ashley Grinonneau-Denton and I'm a  PCC-S, IMFT-S/AAMFT Approved Supervisor, and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Sex Therapist Supervisor. I am the Co-Director of the Ohio Center for Relationship & Sexual Health in Cleveland, Ohio. 


    I'm reaching out to introduce upcoming AASECT Approved sex therapy workshops and AASECT Sexual Health Certificate Program. I 
    would encourage you to look at https://www.aasect.org/aasect-certified-sex-therapist-0 to learn more about all the requirements for AASECT Sex Therapist/Counselor Certification if you are unfamiliar with them. Our program meets the educational requirements towards the AASECT certification. 


    The course is a 12 months for 150 CE hr. Certificate Program (September - August). The coursework is made up of 3 in-person weekend workshops and online web-based courses and webinars. Our program price includes the SAR (Sexual Attitude Reassessment) which is an AASECT certification requirement as well, which tends to be much more costly if purchased separately (average cost runs $500 or more).

    In a nutshell, to become certified you need to complete the following:

    -SAR (Sexual Attitude Reassessment)--a minimum of 10 hours--ours is 15 and part of our program cost

    -150 hours of core knowledge and sex therapy courses--provided by our program

    -50 hours of supervision (up to half can be group) with any AASECT approved CSTS in the country or world (supervision can be done virtually)--This is not part of the program cost although I do offer discounted packages for those who would like me to be their primary supervisor

    • We are running a promo for our program (includes the SAR and 150 AASECT Approved CEUs) which is $3750 if paid in full before 4/1/19

    Other options include:

    • Pay in full after 4/1/19--10% off program cost (regular price=$5000), with a discount of $500
    • Monthly payment options
    • Trimester payment options
    • Additional discounts for supervision if paid in full (20%)or by trimester (10%)

    As far as the individual courses go, if the certification is not for you, you are welcome to sign up for individual courses on or website or even do a portion of the certification requirements al la carte. Please view all workshops at: https://www.ohiocenterforrelationshipandsexualhealth.com/shop .
