Attachment Based Parenting Approaches in Adoption

Attachment Theory: A Helpful Framework for Understanding and Intervening with At-Risk Children and Their Families

Cutting, Self-Mutilation, and Suicide

ID: 5002WEB

Despite the seemingly growing rate of self-injurious behavior across all cultures, particularly among adolescent and college populations, therapists and other helping professionals often fail to ask direct questions to their young clients about the origin of unusual injuries. Others are often left feeling frustrated by those who repeatedly injure themselves and resort to responses such as "they're just doing it for attention" or misinterpret the behavior to mean that the individual is suicidal. It is not enough to focus on symptom reduction such as putting ice cubes on arms instead of cutting. As professionals we must focus on deeper, more long lasting change. This webinar explains the underlying dynamics such as affect regulation, control/punishment, alexithymia, and self-capacities/invalidation. Participants will learn what each of these are and be able to explain them. Participants will also participate in learning concrete relaxation and breathing skills that can be utilized for their own affect regulation when dealing with such emotionally charged issues.

ID: 5732WEB

Common issues for grieving children will be explored, including factors affecting grief and the grief response, tasks of mourning, stages of grief, how grief is expressed and understood at various ages and stages of development, needs of grieving children, and how the grief experience can vary across different religious and cultural backgrounds. A variety of creative & expressive art techniques will be presented for social workers to utilize throughout the stages of bereavement, including anticipatory grief, recent loss, grief over time, and grief in the current climate of COVID-19.

Let's Talk about Opposition in Adolescence

ID: 5663WEB

Normality or Pathology: An Exploration of Child Development and Mental Health

ID: 5650WEB

Where does normality end and pathology begin?

Supporting Adults, Teens, and Children Coping with Loss

ID: 5294WEB

Adults, teens and children experience many different types of loss: death, divorce, abandonment, foster care, illness, incarceration and deportation leaving them at higher risk for mental and physical illness, substance abuse and aggressive behavior. Learning how to support people after a loss enables them to live emotionally healthy, meaningful and productive lives. This workshop provides an understanding of the impact of loss on children and youth and adults. Attendees will learn the definitions and interrelatedness of loss, grief, mourning and resilience. The dominant culture encourages winning and success, but doesn’t focus on learning how to lose. This essential life skill can be learned as social workers and other professionals provide support to those who are grieving. This webinar will explore the connection between grief and shame as well as differing cultural "grief beliefs" after a loss. While this webinar will focus primarily on how to help people cope with a loss due to death, these concepts are transferable to all types of loss.
