Jan 27, 2020 | CME 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Anchorage, Alaska
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment for Healing PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and More is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 27, 2020 at Hilton Anchorage, Anchorage, Alaska, United States of America.This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Marriage and Family Therapists • Therapists Other Professionals Who Work within the Mental Health Fields Course Description: We all know what it is to feel conflicting emotions, “a part of me wants to … and a part of me does not”. For our clients, this kind of inner emotional conflict can become intense, even debilitating. Why, they wonder, are their relationships unstable? Why are they sometimes enraged and other times too passive? Why do symptoms persist? Can they ever really ‘get over’ traumatic childhood experiences? They may notice a part of them wants to deal with it and another part is hopeless. Internal Family Systems offers unique, clarifying, and empowering methods for addressing these common clinical concerns. Some models of psychotherapy regard having multiple internal “parts” as pathological. NOT in IFS. IFS views the multiplicity of the mind as normal. Every part has a positive intention and every part has value. All clients can heal. IFS aligns the therapist with the innate wisdom of the client. IFS cultivates compassion. IFS is a powerful treatment modality. Once you experience it you will want to incorporate it into your practice. In developing IFS 30 years ago, creator Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., realized that clients were describing experiences with various conflicting roles and extreme behaviors within themselves. He noticed that when parts felt heard and safe and had their concerns addressed, clients became calm and less reactive. They could begin to make different and better decisions. IFS therapy helps clients to find safe ways to connect to early childhood emotions, to transform negative beliefs, to feel grounded in their true self, and to achieve lasting change in their lives. IFS has established a legacy of effectiveness in successfully treating many mental health issues and is being heralded as the treatment that all clinicians should know in order to treat clients more effectively (van der Kolk 2015). Join Jory Agate, LMHC, MDiv, MA, Certified IFS Therapist, for this transformational training day. Learn all that IFS therapy can do for you and your clients. Objectives: • Investigate Internal Family Systems (IFS) concepts, steps and techniques to broaden treatment intervention options. • Appraise how IFS brings a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders by translating common comorbidities into parts language. • Analyze the IFS view that client's symptoms and psychopathology are attempts to solve an emotional problem. • Inspect a clinical session to deepen one’s understanding of IFS treatment strategies. • Practice clinical interventions to enhance effectiveness in sessions. • Appraise the benefits of applying IFS to one’s current clinical practice.

An Introduction to Vestibular Rehabilitation is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from May 16 - 17, 2020 at Anchorage, Alaska, United States of America. Course Description: This class focuses on providing an excellent framework for the clinician to effectively treat vestibular disorders. Like all of our courses, this vestibular physical therapy continuing education course focuses on teaching clinicians to actually treat disorders in this rapidly expanding area. One of the strengths of this course is that it applies to clinicians without any vestibular experience, providing ample tools to treat vestibular disorders, while still maintaining the interest and expanding the capabilities of clinicians more experienced in the field of Vestibular Rehabilitation. BPPV is covered at great length in this course. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Describe six key components of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system. • Discriminate between ten common pathophysiologic conditions of the vestibular system. • Complete a thorough interview of a patient and hypothesize three potential diagnoses using five key questions outlined in the manual. • Hypothesize the differential diagnosis of a mock patient who presents with vertigo versus dizziness. • Complete a thorough examination of a patient, and compare three subjective complaints to the objective findings. • Identify eight standardized assessment tools for use with patients with a vestibular disorder. • Perform three specific tests of vestibular function (VNG, Rotary Chair, and Sensory Organization Testing). • Correctly demonstrate the bedside oculomotor exam and interpret the results. • Distinguish between canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis and accurately locate the involved canal. • Justify the use of a specific treatment theory (habituation, adaptation, and/or substitution), and design a treatment plan specific to that patient, given a patient's diagnosis and findings through an objective exam. • Describe two potential psychological manifestations that may occur with prolonged episodes of dizziness.
