Addressing Childhood Traumatic Stress in Schools

ID: 1048WEB

Childhood trauma is a common occurrence in our society that can have a lasting impact on the psychological wellbeing of children. Our schools particularly in urban settings are tasked with instructing our students in the core subjects while providing a safe and effective environment in which students can achieve their fullest potential. As educators, mental health professionals and administrators we are often left with an arduous task of instructing children who do not come to school equipped and ready to learn. Too often we blame the parents for our students’ difficulties and failures, but we fail to recognize the role that trauma plays on our students and often the parents’ lives, which deeply affects school preparedness. Understanding how complex trauma manifests itself in the classroom and using a preventive approach rather than reactive can help these students heal and begin to achieve their potential.

Daniel Siegel, MD: Interpersonal Neurobiology: The Social Brain and the Embodied Relational Mind

ID: 70805WEB

Dr. Daniel Siegel is a renown psychiatry professor and best-selling author who is known for his unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting and accessible He takes neurobiology and translates it into clear and useful concepts for mental health professionals. Attendees leave a presentation given by Dr. Siegel feeling enlightened and energized.

Interpersonal Neurobiology: The Social Brain and the Embodied Relational Mind
This presentation will provide an overview of the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology and its view of the mind as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information. This perspective of a mind, broader than the brain and bigger than the body, will be contrasted to studies of neuroscience, and in particular to views of the social brain. Is mind simply an “output of brain firing” as is so often stated? Or is the mind and its several facets of subjective experience, consciousness, and information processing actually part of a system that includes the brain in the head, but extends far beyond that skull-encased organ of the body?

This webinar is also APA Approved for Psychology CE Hours.

Mini Certificate in Complex Trauma Webinar

ID: 1043WEB

Each session is three hours in length, with breaks and small group exercise/discussion sessions built into the webinars. The workshop is designed for clinicians who may be new to working with complex trauma-spectrum problems, as well as for more experienced clinicians in various clinical settings. Drawing upon the most current conceptualizations of complex trauma, clinicians will learn the essential principles of a phase-oriented, relational approach. Utilizing a resilience based, attachment-focused framework, clinicians will learn and explore strategies for establishing safety and stability; processing traumatic memories while simultaneously safely exploring traumatic experiences; and mourning the losses of childhood while building a life of choice and agency in adulthood. In order to foster the kind of depth-oriented learning required to address the topic, the workshop is designed as a “closed cohort model”, i.e., the same group of participants will be enrolled for the multi-part online learning sequence, which will include working in small groups to promote experiential learning.

Parents as Healers: Recovering from the Trauma of Domestic Violence

ID: 1029WEB

This webinar will introduce an overall approach, Parents as Healers, which among other things gives the caregiver the knowledge and encouragement they need to be a dynamic partner with the therapist in the healing of their child’s trauma. Participants will learn how to create opportunities for parents and children to process traumatic experiences together using a variety of techniques including directive play therapy, verbal expression, creative arts, and more. Through experiential processing parents become more sensitized and responsive to their child. Participants will also be introduced to the importance of parent empowerment through effective discipline. Often after domestic violence, children can be irritable and oppositional. Some “step into” the role of the absent abuser and other times, the caregiver who had been victimized may not have developed the assertiveness skills needed to effectively manage his/her children. Guidelines for providing effective parent training for domestic violence survivors will be provided.

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

ID: 5421WEB

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD) occur in 1 in 5 pregnant mothers, and 1 in 7 new mothers.

In this webinar, clinicians will gain an understanding of the range of PMAD diagnosis, risk factors for developing a PMAD, and the treatment available to new mothers. PMAD survivors will share their stories of recovery, and participants will apply treatment techniques in small groups. Attendees will leave with education and tools to support mothers’ mental health during the perinatal and postpartum period.
