Live – EMDR Skills for Attachment Wounds & Trauma in Children & Adolescents

Live – EMDR Skills for Attachment Wounds & Trauma in Children & Adolescents

We know from the landmark ACES study that small t and large T trauma especially may increase the prevalence of mental health disorders and overall psychological impairment both during childhood and into adulthood if left untreated. Most experts argue that trauma from attachment rupture and caregiver abuse or neglect can be the most devastating in terms of an overall psychological health prognosis.

The neurobiology of attachment and trauma are closely related and impact child and adolescent brain development. EMDR and Attachment Based Interventions are effective at healing the damage from attachment wounds and traumatic experiences of a child and/or adolescent. Learn specific interventions that will assist you in working with trauma and attachment repair as it applies to children and adolescent populations.

Live – EMDR Skills for Attachment Wounds & Trauma in Children & Adolescents

Self-Regulation Skills for Kids & Teens to Reduce Trauma, Anxiety, & More

 

For those who see kids and teens in therapy, restoring a young person’s ability to self-regulate their emotions can be a challenging, yet extremely important undertaking. While we think of self-regulation as an early skill important for social, emotional, and academic growth, it is also key to a healthy, enjoyable, independent, and interconnected adulthood later in life.

Join us for an informative and interactive workshop discovering play-based mindfulness strategies for resilience and regulation at all ages. Different techniques will engage different kids and teens through arts, sports, games, music, technology and more, for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.

This practical workshop will focus on adapting skills for individuals and groups of all ages and settings. Learning differences, cultural differences, and developmental differences will be explored, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. We will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of presenting issues including depression, anxiety, ADHD, executive function challenges, addiction, impulse control difficulties, trauma, and stress.

Criminal Offenders: Early Childhood Indicators, Screening, and Interventions

Criminal Offenders: Early Childhood Indicators, Screening, and Interventions

What causes a person to engage in criminal activity? Although the answer to this question is complex, research shows neurological, biological, psychological, and social links which form the key to treatment and prevention. Learn crucial empirical insights and interventions that YOU can use as a therapist to recognize these links and provide world-changing and transformational treatment and prevention.

Several prenatal and postnatal neurobiopsychosocial factors can contribute to problematic, challenging, and concerning behaviors across the lifespan. This is especially the case when professionals lack awareness and understanding of these topics and the impacted individual has not received proper support and services. This training will examine several of these factors, including their influence on internalizing symptomology, and externalizing behavioral problems, and criminality. Participants will also learn about screening and intervention options through a neurobiopsychosocial lens.

Other related topics discussed during this training will include adverse childhood experience, attachment disorders, empathy deficits, environmental toxins, executive dysfunction, frontal lobe dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, household dysfunction, amygdala dysfunction, lower socioeconomic status, maternal‐fetal attachment problems, neighborhood and community dysfunction, neurotransmitter dysfunction, poverty, pregnancy and childbirth complications, prenatal drug and alcohol exposure, reduced access to green and blue space, rejection, self‐regulation deficits, sensation seeking, sensory processing issues, structural and functional brain abnormalities, temperament, toxic stress, and traumatic brain injury among others. Empirically based research findings will be highlighted throughout this training.

Many courses teach clinicians how to conduct EMDR with adults. However, very few seminars focus on EMDR modifications for children, leading some clinicians to feel hesitant about using these evidence-based skills with young clients who may greatly benefit from them! This three-hour seminar focuses on practical EMDR skills for the treatment of children, ages 3-15, who have experienced trauma or psychological injury. It assumes that attendees have completed general/basic EMDR training, and is tailored to clinicians who want to broaden and deepen their EMDR skill set in creative and effective ways. After completing this seminar, clinicians will be equipped to help children desensitize to and process distressing memories in a gentle, titrated manner that prioritizes resourcing.
