Complex Trauma in Children

ID: 5661

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.

Cutting, Self Mutilation, and Suicide

ID: 5002

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 workshop explains the underlying dynamics such as affect regulation, control/punishment, alexithymia, and self-capacities/ invalidation. Participants will learn what each of these is 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.

Dealing With Angry Students and Tantrums Effectively

ID: 5061

It seems each year we are faced in dealing 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 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 the school, mental health and home setting. The goal of this workshop will be to supplement your existing tools with others you can quickly implement when working with these students during their most challenging states.

Let's Talk About Opposition in Adolescence

ID: 5663

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 workshop 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.
