Animations, Power Points, and Interactive Strategies for Play-Based Telehealth and On-Site Sessions-WEB

ID: 1011WEB

The advent of social distancing required clinicians who worked with families and children/young adolescents to quickly improvise when switching to a telehealth setting. Therapists had to either completely re-think or modify what they had been doing and what had been working on-site with little preparation, and few resources to guide them. This workshop will attempt to provide an additional resource for those looking for ideas to strengthen the telehealth process and in doing so find additional strategies they can bring to the office. In this webinar, participants will be able to see, through live demonstration, how sharing short animations, videos, and interactive power points as well as other collaborative activities can facilitate the goals of therapy. These activities work well in a telehealth setting but can also be brought on site. Examples of goals will come from the presenter’s own experience and will include emotional regulation, feelings expression, managing anxiety, improving self-esteem, and developing social skills. The types of interventions presented are designed for the less talkative, often distracted child, with low motivation for therapy. The ideas presented will often require the therapist to be able to share their computer screen and limited technical tips will be provided. It is hoped participants can use this workshop as a “jumping off point” to inspire them to create their own interventions. Online resources will be provided for further study.

Parents as Healers: Recovering from the Trauma of Domestic Violence-WEB

Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders: Diagnosis, Current Research, and Providing Effective Treatment-WEB

PMAD survivors will share their stories of recovery, and participants will apply treatment techniques in small groups.

Personalizing Psychotherapy: Evidence-Based Responsiveness and Patient Preferences

ID: 5567WEB

Psychotherapy will maximize its effectiveness by targeting the most powerful sources of change: the therapeutic relationship and the patient him/herself. This webinar begins by overviewing effective (and integrative) methods for personalizing or tailoring treatment to the individual client and their singular context. Discover how practice and research converge in relational responsiveness that fits both clients and clinicians by matching patient transdiagnostic features: stage of change, reactance level, cultural identities, religion/spirituality, and coping style. We then drill down into assessing and accommodating patient preferences, including the use of the Cooper-Norcross Inventory of Preferences (C-NIP). We review several methods to rapidly and reliably assess strong likes and dislikes, present ways to incorporate such preferences into psychological treatment, and discuss the potential contraindications of doing so.

Drawing from his groundbreaking work The Body Keeps the Score, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk will explore the clinical implications of these discoveries and a range of new approaches based on the research.

We will cover the profound effects of trauma on cognition, affect regulation, and on the development of “self” and interactions with others. You will learn how trauma and disruptions in attachment bonds affect the development of identity, and how this is expressed socially as difficulties in affect modulation, destructive behaviour against self and others and in negotiating intimacy. We will cover how childhood trauma affects the development of self-esteem, the capacity to identify and negotiate personal needs, and the ability to relate effectively with others. The webinar will explore interventions aimed at restoring active mastery and the capacity to attend to the here-and-now.

The Neurobiology of Trauma/PTSD-WEB

ID: 5235WEB

The overall goal of this webinar is for practitioners to understand that the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not merely a psychosocial phenomenon and to be better able to provide treatment interventions based on changes in the nervous system. PTSD has been found to be prevalent, but it is important to study PTSD to understand why some individuals develop the disorder and others, also exposed to specific traumatic events, do not. Studying the symptomology of PTSD, as it relates to possible neural mechanisms, may provide some insight toward answering these questions. By the end of this webinar, you will be able to: list the three general categories of symptoms exhibited by individuals with PTSD; describe the role of the limbic system in the production of memory dysfunction in traumatized individuals; understand how the hypothalamus and pituitary gland are involved in the fight or flight response; and the benefits and side-effects of the most common pharmacological agents used to treat PTSD/Trauma.

The Therapeutic Dance: Keeping One Eye on the Client and One Eye on Ourselves-WEB

ID: 1015WEB

As the pandemic continues and helping professionals experience their own trauma and the cumulative trauma of the clients they serve, it is more important than ever to become aware of how our own experiences and traumas affect our relationships with clients. This webinar will provide a review of attachment theory and the prevalence of traumatic transference when working with trauma survivors. Participants will have the opportunity to examine how their own attachment style affects their approach with clients. The concepts of empathic disequilibrium, empathic withdrawal, empathic enmeshment and empathic repression will be reviewed and discussed. Strategies for promoting self-awareness and self-care will be presented. When we do not care for ourselves or keep an eye on the therapeutic dance with clients, the likelihood of burnout, vicarious traumatization and empathic strain are real dangers for the health and well -being of the helper and the therapeutic relationship.
