Each part consists of 6 hours of online course materials. Registration for individual sessions is available. However, as course material will build on previous content we advise participants take both parts to enhance the overall learning experience.
Treating Trauma: Achieve Better Counselling Outcomes & Lasting Changes:
This is an in-depth advanced 6 hour course that examines the incidence and impact of victimizing and traumatic events across the life-span. Dr. Meichenbaum will explain the qualities of those who have resilience to trauma and how therapists can help those who struggle with their traumas.
He will use a Case Conceptualization Model that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making and a Constructive Narrative “strengths-based” intervention approach to address the range of challenging emotional client reactions such as Prolonged and Complicated Grief, Guilt, Shame, Anger and Moral Injuries.
Most important, Dr. Meichenbaum will explain how to implement the Core Tasks of Psychotherapy that contribute to lasting behavioural changes. Attendees will receive a comprehensive TO DO CHECKLIST that will enable them to immediately implement interventions presented. He will use video cases throughout the program.
Treating Traumatized & “High Risk” Children and Adolescents:
Begins with an examination of how to bolster resilience in “high-risk” children and their families. The neurobiological and psycho-social impact of experiencing multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE study) will be explored. How psychotherapists can use trauma-focused interventions and how educators can meet the needs of “high risk” students will be presented. How family members can handle the increased parenting stress that occurs due to stay-in-place demands will be presented. The characteristics of “resilient” children guides the variety of proposed interventions.
Adolescence is a particularly vulnerable age, and three specific populations will be addressed, namely, depressed and suicidal youth, LGBTQ youth, and victims of Human Trafficking.
Finally, how to bolster resilience in will be presented. A particular focus will be on how Mental Health professionals and Educators can cope with the suicide and coronavirus death of their patients.
