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

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.

 

Cost: $105 – Want to attend this course and any future event or course from our CE library for FREE and unlimited for the cost of $34.99/month for 12 months??!! Check out our Everything Plan here.

Objectives:

This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:

a). Learn and understand how to use mindfulness in creative ways that break through resistance and maximize engagement both in and out of the clinical hour.

b). Explore and practice specific strategies to tailor self-regulation to a diagnosis and development.

c). Learn and explore dozens of proven practices that help children with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other common presenting concerns.

d). Understand and explore the exciting neuroscience behind mindfulness and productive and helpful ways to share that information with kids and families.

Live – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Level 2 Training (Dec 2024)

Live – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Level 2 Training (Dec 2024)

**This is a special two-day, 15-CE live webinar event**

 

IMPORTANT: We suggest you complete NDIT Level 1 Training (either live or now available as home study), before completing this NDIT Level 2 Training**

 

Learn advanced NDIT concepts, including a deep, didactic exploration of how to use NDIT to treat more complicated developmental trauma. Dr. Sweeton will build on the foundational concepts of each module taught in NDIT Level 1 training, and work participants toward a more thorough understanding of Module 5, Trauma Processing, neural integration, and resource creation.

 

NOTE: This is advanced NDIT Level 2 training, which will qualify attendees for credit toward overall NDIT Certification (anticipated to be available beginning 2025).

Several evidence-informed approaches to trauma can be immensely helpful to clients. However, many of these therapies are either rigid and overly prescriptive, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or vague, mainly rooted in theory.

Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a module-based, exposure, trauma-focused approach to therapy for PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and somatic therapies. The main goal of NDIT is to help clients titrate into processing traumatic material, so that flooding and retraumatization are minimized. NDIT is also evidence-informed and flexible, which encourages clinicians to create individualized, client-focused trauma treatment plans that can be easily integrated with other therapies.

Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients do outside of session, and ways to facilitate progress though homework exercises. This one-day training will introduce you to basic trauma processing skills of NDIT, that you can begin incorporating into your practice right away.

This NDIT Level II training builds on the basic skills taught in the NDIT Level I training, and presents clinicians with more advanced skills, including ways to use NDIT when working with complex trauma. A substantial part of NDIT Level II training focuses on Module 5, Trauma Processing, and the complexity of doing this work with clients. In addition, NDIT Level II training introduces clinicians to neural integration, and the identification and creation of resources.

Evidence-informed therapies for PTSD can be either rigid and prescriptive, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or largely theoretical, sometimes lacking in practical application. Developed by a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist, Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a flexible, module-based, trauma-focused approach to PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and cognitive behavioral therapies. NDIT helps clients recover from post-trauma symptoms by specifically targeting and restoring the healthy functioning of these five key brain regions impacted by trauma:

  1. Amygdala,
  2. Hippocampus,
  3. Insula,
  4. Cingulate cortex, and
  5. Prefrontal cortex.

Grounded in decades of both brain science and empirical clinical research, NDIT is the first approach of its kind to bridge the gap between neuroscience and clinical practice.

NDIT consists of five distinct modules, each of which focuses on key skills associated with healthy brain change in specific brain regions. NDIT facilitates therapeutic brain change by teaching clients how to……

  • enhance attunement and connection with others (using techniques targeting multiple brain regions),
  • safely reconnect with their bodies (using insula-targeted techniques),
  • regulate their nervous system (using amygdala-targeted techniques),
  • strengthen their cognitive abilities (using cingulate and prefrontal cortex-targeted techniques), and
  • gently process trauma in a titrated manner, minimizing retraumatization (using hippocampus and prefrontal cortex-targeted techniques).

Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients can do outside of therapy sessions to facilitate faster progress in therapy. NDIT modules are strategically sequenced to accelerate neuroplasticity, helping clients move with natural brain change, not against it.

This comprehensive, Level I NDIT course teaches clinicians basic NDIT skills from start to finish, equipping them to immediately begin using NDIT skills in their own practice. Registration includes detailed NDIT slides, handouts, worksheets, and scripts.
