Complex Trauma in Children-WEB

ID: 5661WEB

This is a 2 day webinar. Each day is 3 hours for a total of 6 CE hours. Attendees must attend both days to receive a certificate. 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.

Let's Talk about Opposition in Adolescence-WEB

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. [Elective for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Certificate]

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

ID: 5650WEB

Where does normality end and pathology begin? This question is especially pertinent for clinicians working with children whose developmental stage has a tremendous impact on their current level of functioning. This webinar will explore the interrelationship between children's developmental stages and interpersonal functioning with peers and within family relationships. Participants will move along developmental lines, from separation anxiety to separation and individuation, and explore what separates "normal" child developmental struggles from extremes in behavior indicative of a range of mental health issues. Participants will also explore age-appropriate treatment approaches. [Requirement for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Certificate]
