Jeffrie K. Cape LMSW ACSW CAADC
Jeffrie Cape is a licensed master social worker with
over 25 years of experience. She earned her degree at Case Western Reserve.
Her career path has been varied and along the way she developed assessment
and story telling skills that have translated effectively into diverse
settings. She is a trainer on multiple subjects and has spoken in Michigan
and other states. She has worked in clinical and community settings and
has experience training staff, creating, developing and implementing programs.
Her career began working with children in foster care, where she developed
her first area of expertise, survivors of child sexual assault. She quickly
learned that to help children she had to work with their parents, which
lead her to develop skills in substance abuse assessment, intervention
Leaving the foster care field she became an EAP (employee
assistance professional) with particular expertise in critical incident
stress debriefings and trauma work. Here she refined and expanded her assessment
skills. During that time she was an active member of the education
and training committee for the professional organization, EAPA.
In 1994, returning to clinical practice as a manager at
Family Service Inc, Jeffrie became involved in the domestic violence field
and felt there was a need to have programs for the batterers. Advocating
in her agency and networking in the community she became involved in the
then embryonic BISC-MI (Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan)
and other local task forces. She helped create local standards for batterer
intervention programs eventually becoming a member of the governorís task
force to develop state standards. She was active in the planning and implementation
of the first BISC conference, which lead to the formation of BISC-MI in
1995. She served on the board until April 2011 when she was appointed to
the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board.
After leaving Family service Inc. Jeffrie worked to create
a jail based program for batterers with substance abuse problems and in
the court system doing presentence investigations. Jeffrie joined ADA (Alternative
to Domestic Aggression, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw Count) in
Washtenaw County, part time, in 2001 where she continues to facilitate
groups, train and develop and refine curriculum. She also created programming
for the MDOC and trained their staff on how to implement the program.
In 2003 she became the director of Charron Services and
started HEAL (Helping Explore Accountable Lifestyles) which meets throughout
Oakland County, running many groups in partnership with Community Corrections
Step Forward Program. In 2005 she expanded services to include WEAVE (Women
Exploring Accountably Violent Encounters) a program for women arrested
for violence. In 2006 she moved her private practice to Charron Services
where she works with a varied client population addressing issues of substance
abuse, couples counseling, children, mental health issues, life adjustment,
trauma and violence. She is an active member of NASW-Michigan where she
was the former chair of the education and training committee.

Lorin Burgess MSW, LMSW, Clinical Therapist and RAISE Project Director
(Recovery After Initial Schizophrenia Episode), Catholic Social Services
of Washtenaw County.
Lorin Burgess, LMSW received his Master of Social Work
from the University of Michigan in 1995. In the 15 years since, he has
acquired experience in several sectors of the field. As both an outpatient
and home-based therapist, he has worked with adults and children with anxiety,
depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, trauma issues, panic and other
mood disorders, and also specializes in couples counseling. Lorin also
has several years experience in Washtenaw County treating the unique therapeutic
issues of low-income clients. Using a cognitive behavioral and solution
focused approach, Lorin helps clients gain insight into the contributions
that their thoughts and behaviors make on their own, unique issues, and
how adjusting thoughts and behaviors can help to correct negative patterns.
Lorin is the CSSW project director for the RA1SE (Recovery
After Initial Schizophrenia Episode) program. RA1SE is a study through
the National Institute of Mental Health that studies early intervention
for people with schizophrenia. More information can be found at www.raiseetp.org
Lorin is also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization
and Reprocessing), a comprehensive, integrative psychotherapy approach.
Containing elements of many effective psychotherapies that are designed
to maximize treatment effects, EMDR uses bilateral stimulation (usually
eye movements) to rapidly process information. It attends to the past experiences
that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that
trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive
experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.
