Jun 20, 2019 | USD $229.99 | Oakland, California
Self-Regulation Interventions for Children & Adolescents: Reduce Frustration, Emotional Outbursts & Oppositional Behaviors is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jun 20, 2019 at Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Oakland - Airport, Oakland, California, United States of America. Target Audience • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Psychotherapists • Therapists • Marriage and Family Therapists • Speech-Language Pathologists • Teachers • School Guidance Counselors • Case Managers • Nurses • School Administrators • Educational Paraprofessionals • Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants • Other Helping Professionals who Work with Children Course Description: This seminar will help you to better intervene with the challenging child – the one who won’t sit still; doesn’t follow directions; often throws tantrums; or has difficulty waiting for their turn. They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are dysregulated and unable to succeed socially and academically. Join clinical psychologist Dr. Ehlert and learn how to effectively intervene with emotional and behavioral dysregulation using techniques that address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them. Through discussion and hands-on activities, you will learn how to create appropriate behavioral expectations and environments that will help children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders. Intervene with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to succeed at home, school and with peers! • Recognize the signs of underlying processing deficits that lead to dysregulation • Strategies to improve self-control, social success, emotional regulation and task completion • Strategies to reduce frequency and duration of behavioral and emotional outbursts • Problem-solving strategies to create positive structure and expectations, positive coping and self-regulation • Brain training exercises that will increase self-regulation Objectives: • Communicate how sensory, language, and executive skills impairments create fight/flight/freeze and defensive responses that lead to dysregulation and related behavioral issues in children. • Select the appropriate intervention strategies to improve student skills including self-control, social success, emotional regulation and task completion. • Employ behavior modification techniques and problem-solving strategies to diffuse students' escalated and oppositional behavior. • Implement environmental strategies to accommodate children’s processing deficits and emotional regulation needs. • Utilize problem-solving strategies to develop appropriate behavioral expectations and coping mechanisms for improved self-regulation skills in students. • Apply cognitive restructuring strategies to reduce frequency, severity and duration of children’s behavioral and emotional outbursts.

AFTA 41st Annual Meeting & 8th Open Conference: Rupture and Repair: Remaking Relationships in Families and Communities is organized by American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA) and will be held from Jun 20 - 22, 2019 at Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, California, United States of America. This year’s conference builds on last year’s foundation for hope and action. From relational activism-as a way to find spaces where we can learn more about how to show up for one another in relational ways that offer support and solidarity to examining rupture and repair in relationship-to continue standing with and being led by the desire to make room for connection and doing what’s right by one another. This year we will focus on “Rupture and repair: Remaking relationships in families and communities,” to examine how we use our knowledge to address ruptures and repair-in couples, families, communities and in our relationship with the environment and non-human beings, and to devise strategies for creating sustainable change and repair. The recent past in this country has brought tremendous ruptures in relationships at micro and macro levels. As systems thinkers, we have important contributions to make relative to the many possibilities to address ruptures and repair-in training, consultation and research settings, as well as in organizations both here and abroad. We must prepare to continue addressing the impact of these ruptures while acknowledging that in the end repair is critical. Ruptures can be opportunities to reconsider our views and behavior and to strengthen relationships. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The Global Nurses: Caring For The Global Community is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Jul 26, 2019 at California Nurses Association Headquarters, Oakland, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEHs. Course Description: As a nurse, maybe you work in the same community in which you were born and raised. Or, maybe you’ve traveled to your current facility from another neighborhood, another state, or another region of the world. In all these cases, nurses reflect the communities they care for. As patient populations become increasingly diverse, nurses combine on-the-ground community knowledge with the global perspective that’s needed to care for their patients. This course will examine the role of RNs as global citizens. We will investigate how the nursing profession responds to an international “crisis of care” by pitting the values advocacy and compassion against the exploitative systems their patients face every day. From a historical standpoint, we will explore the ethical challenges and solutions that nurses have faced since the inception of the profession. We will also draw more modern comparisons between RNs and other global caring professions in order to understand how nurses are part of a broader struggle for care, health equity, and justice. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Identify how global migration patterns shape patient and caregiver communities. • Explain how the nursing profession responds to the needs of a global crisis in care. • Enumerate the social and economic conditions faced by over 19 million nurses across the globe. • Articulate why the public holds trust and faith in nurses and how nurse ethics can continue to foster confidence in the profession. • Describe the connections between RNs and other care professionals who form a global movement for care justice.

Treatment approaches can often be confusing due to dogmatic classification systems, which can be overly complicated and difficult to apply in a clinically meaningful way. However, patients with regional disorders often present with similar clinical presentations. These clinical presentations can often guide clinicians towards the best treatment options. This course is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs the busy clinician. Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report low back pain are likely to present. Patients presenting with chronic low back pain, referred leg pain, SI dysfunction or even stenosis will often respond to similar treatment approaches. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations. Finally, treatment approaches are organized in a logical way providing examples of how the treatments could be integrated. Objectives: • Identify the most common clinical presentations associated with the lumbo pelvic complex. • Identify examination findings associated with the most common clinical presentations in patients with lumbosacral pain. • Identify treatment progressions based on clinical presentation and how to progress/regress treatment. • Demonstrate treatment procedures for a given clinical presentation. • Identify how treatment pathways may be altered for unique clinical situations in those with lumbosacral pain.

Course Purpose: This course is a lab intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system of management for the knee. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of anatomical and biomechanical presentation of efficient knee function, and the interdependence between knee function and healthy motions of the foot/ankle and the hip. With the recognition that the knee is greatly influenced by the motions of the entire lower extremity, the participants will be guided through functional evaluations and assessments to identify key dysfunctions of the lower extremity to better guide interventions aimed at enhancing knee function. The participants will first be guided through select interventions for the foot and ankle and the hip prior to systematically working through an extensive series of direct treatments to the knee and surrounding structures, all with a focus on restoring a more optimal state of function to the lower extremity. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function and motor control impairments of the knee. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will implement an appropriate plan of care, and utilize Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. This course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention.
