Workshop Description In this intensive 3-day workshop, DBT will be de-mystified and you will learn how to use this highly effective therapy to better treat your clients with problems managing emotions. Sheri’s unique workshops emphasize the flexibility of DBT and the benefits of using this therapy to treat disorders other than borderline personality disorder, including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and concurrent substance use; as well as other difficulties clients experience such as problems with self-esteem, anger, and grief. Through lecture, experiential exercises, and case consultation you will explore the four modules of DBT: Core Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Explore tools and strategies to improve the therapeutic relationship and reduce feelings of ineffectiveness and burn-out. Viewing video-tapes of Sheri’s real-life sessions will provide you with a better understanding of the flow of individual sessions as well as how to balance accepting clients where they are with pushing them to make positive changes. Bringing her years of clinical experience in both private practice and as part of a community hospital; and working with both individuals and DBT-informed groups, Sheri’s practical, inspiring, and highly praised workshop will give you evidence-based skills that can be immediately put into practice. Learning Objectives: • Learn more about the origins of DBT in order to more fully understand it, including a brief look at DBT versus CBT; the traditional DBT model; and research showing that adaptations of DBT can be very effective. • Describe the biosocial theory and how this applies to BPD and other disorders of emotion dysregulation. • Discuss behavior theory and the importance of these concepts to building stronger relationships with clients, and to assist clients in making behavioural changes. • Demonstrate a variety of mindfulness techniques to make mindfulness more understandable and acceptable to clients. • Explain the basics of dialectics and some dialectical strategies for the individual session to help get clients unstuck and to build the therapeutic alliance. • Practice the Behavioral Analysis • Reduce therapist burn-out through observing limits and use of skills such as nonjudgmental stance and radical acceptance • Develop a basic understanding of neuroplasticity and how mindfulness relates to this, as well as how you can translate this into skills and use these ideas to help increase client motivation. • Explain skills in the Emotion Regulation module to give clinicians a basic understanding of how to teach these skills to clients to regulate emotions more effectively. • Demonstrate the distress tolerance skills that will help clients survive crisis situations and learn how to not act on urges. • Discuss Interpersonal Effectiveness skills: the importance of increasing and maintaining positive relationships and improving communication. • Discuss how these skills can be helpful in treating a wide array of psychiatric conditions and problems, including major depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and problems with anger and self-esteem.

3 Day Intensive: Working with Oppositional, Defiant and Anger Issues with Children and Adolescents is organized by Jack Hirose & Associates Inc and will be held from Jul 15 - 17, 2019 at Banff Park Lodge Resort Hotel & Conference Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Who Should Attend Education and Clinical Professionals: All education and mental health or healthcare professionals who work with children or youth including, but not limited to K–12 Classroom Teachers, School Counsellors, Learning Assistance/Resource Teachers, School Administrators, School Paraprofessionals including Special Education Assistants, Classroom Assistants and Childcare Workers, All other professionals who support behavioural challenges and complex learning needs including but not limited to: Nurses, Social Workers, Psychologists, Clinical Counsellors, Family Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Addiction Counsellors, Youth Workers, Mental Health Workers, Probation Officers and Community Police Officers. Workshop Description Children diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) can present a monumental challenge to therapists, teachers, parents and siblings. ODD and other conduct problems are the single greatest reasons for referrals to outpatient and inpatient mental health settings for children, accounting for at least half of all referrals. Complicating the success of therapeutic interventions is the high rate of comorbidity with anxiety and depressive disorders or ADHD. Current research also correlates a variety of cognitive skill deficits including executive function, emotional regulation, language processing, and social processing. These complicating comorbidities and correlations mean that ODD often requires multidisciplinary assessment and components of mental health care, case management, and educational intervention for students and clients to improve. This dynamic workshop will address a full range of behavioural disturbances, from mild to severe, in order to identify the therapeutic techniques that have proven effective. Participants will review and discuss strategies which can be immediately applied across a variety of settings including home, community, social groups, classrooms, or therapeutic. Participants will examine the intersection of ODD with a variety of issues such as trauma, ADD, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, and depression and discuss how these affect and alter treatment decisions. Participants will leave this workshop with a much improved diagnostic and treatment approach to ODD and other behavioural disorders. Benefits to Attending • Beyond behaviour charts – Truly intervene with difficult behaviours • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder & important DSM-5 updates • The #1 reason families inadvertently fuel defiant behaviours • How educators and clinicians may be fuelling exactly what they are trying to stop • Why child/adolescent “terrorist behaviours” work • Technology and behaviours… video games, electronic bullying, learning styles • Case studies & experience
