A Review of Evidence Based Practices and Optimal Treatment Models for Complex Trauma

ID: 5871

This workshop will present an overview of single event and complex trauma, including a discussion of different types of traumatic events. The participants will learn about the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder diagnosis and the limitations of this diagnosis for treatment. The impact of trauma on the brain, attachment, and disrupted attachment appear to give us more information about creative and innovative strategies to treat trauma than diagnosis. A brief review of the meaning of evidence based practice and its use in the behavioral health field will be examined. A more in-depth look into treatment models such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Thought Field Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment Self-Regulation Competency will be discussed.

Differences and Diversity in the Experience, Effects and Treatment of Trauma

ID: 5852

In this workshop we will examine how cultural issues influence the experience, effects and treatment of trauma and discuss culturally specific needs and interventions for trauma survivors. The needs of some special populations will be explored as well.

The Ethics of Trauma and Disaster Response: Doing Right, Doing Good

ID: 5853

This workshop will examine the ethical issues that confront mental health professionals today in the burgeoning and related fields of disaster response, humanitarian relief and trauma interventions. Principles of ethical professional practice will be reviewed in the context of these specialized fields, with a discussion of how these principles can be applied to such interventions, as well as areas in which these principles may conflict with the demands of various field scenarios. Common pitfalls professionals face in these situations will be addressed.

The Link between Trauma and Substance Abuse: Causes, Signs, and Treatment Indications

ID: 5041

This workshop is designed to educate both the substance abuse counselor and mental health professional on the prevalence of substance abuse and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, and importance of cross education for themselves to ensure the best outcomes for their client. The workshop begins with an overview of the long history of specific populations who are most often diagnosed with both disorders and the poor treatment outcomes when the attempt is made to treat each separately and not concurrently. The chemical reactions created by both traumatic stress and substance abuse are discussed and the research linking them. Finally, some successful treatment models are discussed with experiential exercises participants can use in early stages and later treatment with this population.

The Neurobiology of Trauma/PTSD

ID: 5235

The overall goal of this workshop is for practitioners to understand that the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not merely a psychosocial phenomenon and to be better able to provide treatment interventions based on changes in the nervous system. PTSD has been found to be prevalent, but it is important to study PTSD to understand why some individuals develop the disorder and others, also exposed to specific traumatic events, do not. Studying the symptomology of PTSD, as it relates to possible neural mechanisms, may provide some insight toward answering these questions. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to: list the three general categories of symptoms exhibited by individuals with PTSD; describe the role of the limbic system in the production of memory dysfunction in traumatized individuals; understand how the hypothalamus and pituitary gland are involved in the fight or flight response; and the benefits and side-effects of the most common pharmacological agents used to treat PTSD/Trauma.

The Neuroscience of Optimal Well-Being: Reducing Stress, Resolving Trauma, Recovering Resilience

ID: 5859

Breakthroughs in the field of neuroscience are giving us validation that the brain, body, mind and spirit are interconnected. In fact, there is increasing scientific evidence that we can rewire our brains to enhance our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Participants will be introduced to the emerging field of Psychoneuroimmunology which examines the connections between our neurons and internal chemicals (neuropeptides) forming the biological basis of our emotions, beliefs and expectations. Participants will explore how these connections affect our functioning and our health, as well as the latest findings regarding neuroplasticity- the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout our lifetime! This information, provided in an approachable manner, with unforgettable case studies, will be enhanced by experiential learning that will give participants the opportunity to practice empirically validated techniques that activate brain states of calm and relaxation, compassion and gratitude. Learn to resource, rewire and regulate your body-brain (and those of your clients) for reduced stress, greater well-being and improved relationships!

Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Community Violence

ID: 5880

Definitions of trauma refer to circumstances that are outside the realm of normal human experience. Unfortunately, this definition does not always hold true. For some, trauma can occur frequently and become part of the common human experience, especially violence in the community. The impact of trauma and community violence can shape and compound the difficulties of our clients. This workshop provides an overview of trauma and community violence, and explores the impact the two phenomena have on clients. The training will give professionals tools to address the residual effects of trauma and community violence. Additionally, professionals will examine ways they can be exposed to trauma vicariously and the importance of self-care to combat burnout.
