    The Transtheoretical Model of Change - CEU-eligible


       


    Karissa Doree and Brittany Entrekin

    Life Skills Advocate, LLC


    The Transtheoretical Model of Change is an effective tool in evaluating a client's readiness to see and address areas in which they may need growth. In relation to executive functioning, this resource helps clients, coaches, and other support providers assess which part of the client's goals and needs can be reasonably approached, and what kind of timeline is feasible to assign to the goals.

    This presentation will:

    Teach attendees to assess a client's readiness to change and its impact on client goal-setting.

    Help attendees help their clients discover their clients' values and goals in regards to the Model of Change.

    Demonstrate SMART goals and the Eisenhower Decision-Making Grid and how those connect to the Model of Change.


    Karissa Doree has lived in the Seattle area for eight years, working as a supervisor for a a healthcare information management company. In December of 2021, her close friend and co-coach Katie encouraged her to apply to Life Skills Advocate. Despite being unfamiliar with the coaching profession, Karissa immediately felt a close-to-home relationship and calling to the mission statement put forward by Life Skills Advocate. She has been coaching and taking on additional tasks and duties since the beginning of 2022, and enjoys furthering her knowledge and skills working with the neurodivergent community.


    As someone diagnosed with ADHD and OCD, Brittany Entrekin believes wholeheartedly in the benefits of executive functioning support and guidance. As a coach, Brittrany focuses on shame-free mindsets and goal-oriented strategies to help clients navigate growth. She has a background in both academics and social work; that experience has been integral in shaping her passion and approach with coaching.


    Chris Hanson founded Life Skills Advocate when he noticed a lack of neurodivergent-friendly support in the school system. Both his own ADHD and his experience in the school system have helped inform the structure of Life Skills Advocate. Clients' individualized needs are evaluated and prioritized at Life Skills Advocate. Life Skills Advocate utilizes a client-centric model of coaching so that the client can collaborate with the coach on their goals and strategies.

    Do I Need This?

         


    Kate Schermerhorn, Kate Schermerhorn.com


    Tuesday, November 1, 2022

    6:15PM - 8:30PM (Pacific Time)

    Do I Need This? is a documentary about our complicated relationship with the stuff in our lives, the stuff from which happiness is truly made, and legacy.

    This quirky, relatable, and profound award-winning film delicately interweaves the filmmaker's complicated relationship to her family possessions during the late stages of her parents' lives, together with a journey into the homes and minds of her fellow Americans - from a Buddhist monk to a woman who hoards, and a colorful cast of characters in between.  The film explores late-in-life decisions related to the stuff we accumulate over a lifetime, and how it impacts our loved ones once we are gone.

    Do I Need This? will be broadcast on PBS stations nationally in mid-2023. The film features Dr. Randy Frost, co-author of Buried in Treasures and Bea Johnson, author of Zero Waste Home.

    Please enjoy the trailer!

    Kate Schermerhorn, an Emmy-winning filmmaker and photographer, has directed 100s of videos, three feature-length documentaries, won one Emmy, been nominated for one more, won two Tellies, lived in four countries, jumped out a plane 27 times and is the mother of two. She compares her work to a person dressed as a polyester Statue of Liberty, holding a sign spinner which is strategically pointed to say, 'LOOK HERE!'. Of her work, The New Yorker says, "nothing seems wasted, nothing's excessive"  and the Evening Standard says "there's a mesmerizing quality to (Kate's) work".
