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.

Principles of Differential Diagnoses in Adolescents-WEB

ID: 5651WEB

This is a 2 day webinar. Diagnosing mental disorders in adolescents can pose special difficulties. The clinical presentations of certain important disorders can differ from what is typical in adulthood and be harder to differentiate from normative development. At the same time, factors that complicate diagnosing adults--for example, the effects of medical problems or substance abuse-also complicate diagnosing adolescents. Further, particular medical and psychological interventions impact adolescents differently than adults. This comprehensive two-day workshop will review current knowledge about how selected mental disorders (mood disorders, disruptive behavior disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, early onset schizophrenia, and others) should be diagnosed in adolescence. The webinar focuses on diagnosis, not treatment techniques; research on the efficacy of current treatments for adolescents will be reviewed when relevant.
