Rewire the Anxious Brain: Neuroscience-Informed Treatment of Anxiety, Panic and Worry is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jun 11, 2019 at Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Chico, Chico, California, United States of America. Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Counselors • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Nurses • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapist Assistants • Marriage & Family Therapists • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: Join Hannah Smith and learn her keys for successful anxiety treatment. Hannah integrates brain-based strategies for calming the anxious mind with client communication techniques that motivate change in your clients. Her approach promotes adherence to treatment and strengthens the therapeutic alliance – which is essential when working with anxious, worried, traumatized, or obsessive clients. Hannah will give you tools and techniques to: • Identify and treat the roots of anxiety in both the amygdala and the cortex • Explain “the language of the amygdala” in an accessible, straight forward way • Identify how the cortex contributes to anxiety, and empower clients with strategies to resist anxiety-igniting cognitions Objectives: • Ascertain the underlying neurological processes that impact anxious symptoms for clients. • Develop client engagement in treatment using personalized goals and attending to the therapeutic relationship. • Evaluate the differences between amygdala-based and cortex-based anxiety symptoms and identify how these symptoms inform treatment interventions. • Communicate strategies for calming and training the amygdala in order to alleviate symptoms of anxiety. • Implement methods for teaching clients to retrain the cortex so that anxiety is resisted rather than exacerbated. • Analyze how psychotropic medication impacts neuroplasticity in the brain; identify related treatment implications. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

GAIT: Functional Gait: Component Assessment and Treatment is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Jul 26 - 28, 2019 at Enloe Rehabilitation Center, Chico, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 20 Contact Hours. Audience: PT. PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: Many aspects of function are impeded by motor control problems that are reflected in a patient’s gait and rolling patterns. The skill to observe and then affect a positive impact on a patient’s gait dysfunction is a powerful tool in the total rehabilitation of both orthopedic and neurological patients. Building on the foundational skills learned in other IPA courses,Functional Gait emphasizes component assessment and the governing structural and motor control factors which influence each component. Each gait component is self-evaluated,assessed by two partners, and then treated using PNF, CFS®, and FM treatment strategies. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate through small group discussion monitored by the instructor the ability to identify: • The biomechanical principal which govern gait • The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient gait • The functional interrelationship of the body's systems and regions necessary for efficient gait By the end of course, the participant will demonstrate the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately: • Analyze gait dysfunctions in lab partners or on video The participant will develop the manual and observational skills to: • Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified inefficient gait • Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary to perform efficient gait • Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate a more efficient gait pattern By the end of the course, participant will demonstrate, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to perform appropriate manual skills of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control treatment to correct any identified gait dysfunctions in lab partners. By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate, in supervised lab practice sessions the ability to instruct the patient in an appropriate home program. Throughout the course, the participant will participate in guided discussions related to the current evidence for Gait assessment and treatment. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

PNF II: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation II is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Oct 18 - 20, 2019 at Enloe Rehabilitation Center, Chico, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 28 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: PNF II offers a specific review of the principles and techniques taught in PNF I. Course content includes advanced procedures and techniques of PNF and allows the student actual patient contact for immediate clinical application of skills learned. The student will be instructed in extremity patterns and the integration of these patterns of facilitation into mat and gait activities. The course includes five hours of supervised hand-on patient care of the neurologically impaired patient. Course Objectives: • Review and further develop PNF I skills. • Develop the manual skills necessary to appropriately facilitate efficient extremity and trunk patterns. • Utilize PNF strategies and skills to enhance mat, gait, and functional activities for the neurologically impaired patient. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Esthetic Dentistry, Redefining the Cliche is organized by Ultradent Products, Inc. and will be held on Nov 22, 2019 at Chico, California, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dentists and Team Members. This CE Conference has been approved for a maximum of 8 CE Credits. Overview: Patient driven, elective, full-smile makeovers no longer define esthetic dentistry. The evolution of contemporary practice has led to a much more thoughtful and patient centered approach to restoration. Tooth preservation, minimal invasiveness, biology, and function are the goals of modern practice where optimal esthetics occurs as a value-added by-product. Attendees will learn strategies for optimal adhesion to a variety of substrates including enamel, dentin, and a variety of restorative materials. The direct restorative component of the course will expand on composite layering techniques for developing three dimensionally shaded restorations. They will also learn critical aspects of delivery from full proof matrix strategies for optimal contour and contact formation to best strategies for finishing and polishing. In the indirect restorative component of the course, participants will be exposed to the latest in modern ceramics and will learn the where, why, and how of deployment. Objectives: • Adhesive review • Contemporary direct and indirect restorations • Modern approach to post and core • Disease and substrate driven treatment decisions • Critical materials, techniques, technologies and adjunctive armamentarium Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
