Anxiety interventions: Assertiveness training, relaxation skills training and exposure therapy (Mar 12 - 14, 2020)
Mar 12 - 14, 2020 | USD $1068.5 | Calgary, Alberta
Anxiety interventions: Assertiveness training, relaxation skills training and exposure therapy is organized by Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) / Association canadienne des ergotherapeutes (ACE) and will be held from Mar 12 - 14, 2020 at Royal Hotel Calgary, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Target audience: This workshop is intended for occupational therapist clinicians who wish to increase their confidence and competence in using effective exposure-based techniques and relaxation skills with clients with anxiety (including specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, panic disorder and agoraphobia) and in training these clients to improve their assertive communication. Participants are expected to have a foundation on different types of anxiety disorders. Description: This three-day interactive workshop equips occupational therapists with the fundaments to increase their competence and confidence in using three evidence-informed interventions for clients with anxiety: assertiveness training, relaxation skills training and exposure therapy. The three components are designed to be independent so that participants can attend one, two, or all three elements, as they wish. Day 1 of this three-day workshop focuses on the skills and knowledge involved in conducting assertiveness training with clients – particularly those who find themselves behaving in an overly passive manner in their interactions with others. The four basic communication styles (passive, aggressive, passive-aggressive, and assertive) are reviewed, as well as the internal and interpersonal barriers to being more assertive. In a series of presentation segments interspersed with interactive exercises, participants will learn the basics of nonverbal assertive posture, offering opinions, giving and receiving positive and corrective feedback, making requests, and saying ‘no.’ Tips are provided for practicing these skills with clients and planning their application in diverse settings and situations. Day 2 of this three-day workshop focuses on the nature of stress and anxiety, the point at which anxiety becomes an anxiety disorder, and training in a set of relaxation therapy skills to assist clients in managing their own stress response. The emphasis is on diaphragmatic breathing training, progressive muscle relaxation (PMR), and passive relaxation. Participants will experience each of the techniques themselves and engage in practice simulation in dyads and receive feedback and recommendations on technique. Day 3 focuses on the use of exposure therapy, the foundation of evidence-based intervention for each of the anxiety disorders. Although seemingly straightforward, the effectiveness of exposure therapy decreases dramatically when several basic tenets are not followed. This workshop provides guidelines for effective exposure therapy and provides participants with practice in hierarchy development. The concepts covered in the workshop are adapted to exposure with specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, panic disorder, and agoraphobia. Participants learn the strategies, then conduct several simulations in triads to develop treatment plans for several presenting problems. Participants receive a package of resource materials including presentation notes, over 30 pages of handouts for clients, a set of five relaxation training scripts, a guide to running a 6-session relaxation skills group if desired, and an audio CD that can be reproduced for clients for home practice. Learning objectives: By the end of this workshop, you will be able to: • Identify the core principles of assertive communication. • Work with clients to identify, set, and defend personal boundaries. • Devise and rehearse interaction plans with clients. • Utilize three relaxation training techniques with clients. • Explain the clinical reasoning for selecting a relaxation training technique with a given client. • Explain the tenets of effective exposure therapy. • Develop exposure hierarchies for a variety of clients with anxiety. • Compare imaginal and in vivo exposure exercises. • Integrate relaxation strategies with exposure therapy. Areas of practice: • Mental health Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Hoarding: Assessment and intervention for occupational therapists is organized by Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) / Association canadienne des ergotherapeutes (ACE) and will be held on May 30, 2020 at Royal Hotel Calgary, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Target Audience: Occupational therapists, occupational therapist assistants (OTAs), students in occupational therapy and OTA/PTA programs, who wish to improve their understanding of when and how to address hoarding behaviours that contribute to occupational performance issues. Social workers, psychologists and other frontline workers in housing, mental health, justice and social services are also welcome to attend. Description: Hoarding behaviours can cause distress, impairment of function and serious adverse outcomes such as unsafe living conditions and homelessness. This one-day workshop is designed to equip occupational therapists with the understanding of when and how to address hoarding behaviours that contribute to occupational performance issues. You will be provided with a workbook that summarizes learnings and includes assessment tools. The first part of the workshop will focus on reviewing evidence-based information on hoarding, including: • an introduction to hoarding disorder, hoarding behaviours and neglect; • a review of theoretical models used to understand hoarding; and • the accepted approach for assessment and intervention of hoarding disorder. Group discussion regarding the application of an occupational lens to augment the understanding, assessment and intervention process will follow. In the second half of the workshop, you will rotate through three small group activities to practice: • identifying an appropriate plan for occupational therapy involvement using case examples to address hoarding behaviour and related occupational performance issues; • conducting assessment related to hoarding behaviour; and • delivering intervention to address hoarding behaviour. The workshop will conclude by identifying practical considerations, opportunities and challenges related to real-world application of workshop material to your occupational therapy practice. Areas of practice: Mental health, General physical health, Health promotion and wellness Learning objectives: By the end of this workshop, you will: • Understand hoarding and recognize hoarding behaviours (vs. neglect, collecting). • Be able to use assessment tools to measure hoarding, appreciate contributing factors to the behaviour, and monitor impact on function, safety and tenancy. • Be able to explain standard practice for intervention to address hoarding behaviours and how to minimize or avoid causing harm. • Be able to augment this standard practice using occupational lens. • Be able to take the next steps in addressing hoarding behaviours with direct intervention and consultation with others (professionals, landlords, family) in your occupational therapy practice.
