Additionally, in partnership with the Utah Department of Health, Generations 2017 will present DEMENTIA DIALOGUES – an interactive educational program designed for individuals, groups and organizations that interact and/or care, personally or professionally, for people diagnosed with dementia. The program’s manager, MACIE P. SMITH will be joining us from South Carolina to provide unbelievable and riveting insights into this world along with an inspiring closing keynote address for all attendees. You can choose to attend the full program or just pop into specific parts which interest you the most. In addition to Ms. Smith, you will have the rare opportunity to hear from other top nationally and locally recognized figures in the behavioral health and addiction spheres. More specifically, offering keynotes and other topic branches will be:


Dr. Hayes is well known for an analysis of human language and cognition (Relational Frame Theory), and its application to various psychological difficulties (his work on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)). He is a widely-respected scientist and author / co-author of 300+ articles and 27 books including Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life which rose to #20 on Amazon’s 2006 list and became the #1 self-help book in the US for a time outselling “Harry Potter”! What seems to be most controversial about Dr. Hayes, at least in the popular media, is his claim that some level of pain or discomfort is ubiquitous and dominantly linked to normal language processes rather than an abnormality. This has placed ACT somewhat at odds with mainstream CBT and empirical clinical psychology, despite the fact that ACT is a form of behavioral and cognitive therapy. All this and more accounts for Time columnist, John Cloud’s claim that “Steven Hayes is at the top of his field.” Generations is honored to welcome Dr. Hayes who will present, not only a touching keynote address but also a track on ACT – a real bonus for attendees.


Board certified in Psychiatry, Addiction Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, Dr. Sack currently serves as CMO of Elements Behavioral Health, a network of addiction treatment centers that include Promises, The Ranch, and The Recovery Place. He previously served as a senior clinical scientist at the National Institute of Mental Health where his research interests included affective disorders, seasonal and circadian rhythms, and neuroendocrinology. Dr. Sack is often quoted by the press. “The Doctors” TV show recently turned to him for expert comment on dabbing, a highly dangerous way of ingesting marijuana that is growing in popularity. Dabs, also known as butane hash oil (BHO), honey oil, budder, shatter, crumble and wax, are made by extracting THC, the primary psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. “In the old days, marijuana had a concentration of about 5% and now when you’re looking at hash oil, you’re talking about a concentration of 80%,”. Combining knowledge such as this, additional research and findings from his own practice, Dr. Sack will present a captivating keynote on the Science of Spirituality – New Paths to Restoring the Brain. This will provide you with a different twist on this popular subject and a follow-up session on preventing overdose deaths will arm you with some of the latest data surely impacting your practice. (Supported by Elements in partnership with Journey Healing Centers.)


Jean was Director of Operations for a multi-million dollar advertising and marketing firm in New York when, because of her own personal recovery journey, she realized that her work was feeding her 401K, but not her soul. So, she earned her MSW and went on to focus her clinical work in the areas of substance abuse, mental health, trauma resolution and somatic psychotherapy. Over the last 21 years, Jean has worked in a variety of clinical settings. Jean carries many credentials in the areas of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy, as well as psychodramatic bodywork®, experiential therapy, EMDR and Reiki. Additionally, she has extensive teaching experience and is a sought-after trainer who constantly pulls stunning reviews from audiences of all types. Jean is committed to using action to effect change on a body, mind and spiritual level. Now, you will have the prospect at Generations to connect with this dynamic and popular professional, to learn about these emergingly popular areas, and to open your own mind and practice in more creative and interactive ways.

Kick back an extra 30 or 60 minutes and enjoy these special features and arrive home at the same time as others who get stuck in traffic!


On December 10th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from the US government. He had spent over a decade rescuing children from sex tourism domestically and overseas. Though his job was difficult, he was proud that his country was one of very few in the world doing anything about this problem. However, mired in red tape, Tim left to begin saving children he saw falling out of the purview of the US government. These children constitute over 90% of the children lost to child sex slavery and he could do nothing to help them while in the employment of the US government. You’ve heard of Operation Underground Railroad, now you can see them in action through this 2016 documentary film by Darrin Fletcher and Chet Thomas about a sting mission orchestrated in Colombia by their independent jump team, led by former U.S. Homeland Security Special Agent Ballard, countering child sex trafficking.


One in five Americans suffer from a mental disorder. This special movie feature is one family’s story – After a Missouri high school loses three students to suicide, Mark Norwine (a mental health advocate) embarks on a 200-mile walk across the state, seeking to educate students and better understand the epidemic for himself. Mark is joined by his son, Eric, but when the road proves difficult, father and son must confront their own mental health struggles, which they’ve kept secret for so long. Endorsed by universities and mental health organizations across the U.S., Walking Man is an honest look at one Family’s journey with mental illness.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT, is a repeatedly and popularly requested treatment modality at Generations. Now, you have a chance to delve into the application of DBT skills that you can incorporate into your own practice, when indicated, for improved outcomes. If you’re familiar with the basic concepts and philosophies behind DBT, a cognitive behavioral treatment originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder and now proven effective for a wider range of disorders such as substance dependence, depression, PTSD and eating disorders, this workshop is for you. If you have been unsure of your skills but would like to use this modality more, this workshop is what you need. If you are using DBT and want to fine tune or improve your effectiveness, this is the workshop for you. Delve into the four key components – skills training groups, individual treatment, DBT phone coaching and consultation teams. See the behavioral skill sets in action and practice them yourself. Increasing evidence supports DBT skills training as a promising intervention for a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical populations. Incorporate DBT into your practice for life-threatening, therapy-interfering and/or quality of life behaviors and skills acquisition. DBT can be effective in reducing self-injury, suicidal behavior, psychiatric hospitalization, treatment dropout, substance use, anger, and depression and improving social and global functioning. Take advantage of this special opportunity to increase your DBT skills and patient outcomes in this comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable environment. Why spend hundreds of dollars or travel when you can attain a more personal, compact, and focused training close to home? Create a difference in your professional life and in the lives of your clients. (Program confirmed as of print date. Minor changes may occur.)
