Complex Trauma in Children

ID: 5661WEB

Exposure to multiple traumatic events early in life within the context of the caregiving system can have profound and long-lasting impacts. These experiences affect how people experience others and react to events, and often lead to dysfunction in a variety of ways: problems in establishing stable relationships; problems managing emotions; problems controlling behavior; and problems in planning and following through on plans. The difficulties typically go beyond the basic criteria for PTSD. Often, these children do not have narrative memories for the events that occurred. If the problems they present are not understand as reactions to complex trauma, the interventions chosen to address them are not helpful and the children often fail in the many systems they enter. This workshop will provide an overview of what constitutes complex trauma, the ways in which individuals with these histories are impacted, as well as a discussion of how understanding these issues can make our interventions more successful. This is a two-day webinar. Each day is 3 hours for a total of 6 CE hours.

Dealing with Angry Students and Tantrums Effectively

ID: 5061WEB

It seems each year we are faced with more and more students who are getting angrier and angrier. Why are our students angry? How do we deal with students when they are annoyed, frustrated or otherwise irritated? What works and what does not? In this informative workshop, we will attempt to briefly look at the context that seems to foster these reactions in students. Then, and most importantly, we will look at practical and simple tools that can be used immediately to decrease the incidents of tantrums and angry behaviors within school, mental health, and home settings. The goal of this webinar will be to supplement your existing skills with new tools you can quickly implement when working with these students during their most challenging states

Let's Talk about Opposition in Adolescence

ID: 5663WEB

Opposition in adolescence has become synonymous with oppositional defiant disorder. This view of opposition as a disorder is limiting and puts adults in conflict with youth. This webinar will focus on discussing the need to see opposition on a continuum. Participants will identify and discuss their personal constructs about oppositionality in adolescence. They will explore my construct of opposition as advocacy and power expression in adolescence which facilitates the youth's development of a healthy sense of self and purpose that will equip them to transition into a healthy, productive, and satisfying adulthood. Participants will discuss the importance of focusing on the caregiver-adolescent relationship and using relational interventions.
