The Upward Spiral: Evidence-Based Neuroscience Techniques for Rewiring the Pathways of Anxiety, Depression and Related Disorders - San Jose
Dec 13, 2019 | CE Hours 6.25 | USD $249.99 | San Jose, California
The Upward Spiral: Evidence-Based Neuroscience Techniques for Rewiring the Pathways of Anxiety, Depression and Related Disorders is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 13, 2019 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose, San Jose, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 clock hours of continuing education/ 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Target Audience: • Psychologists • Social Workers • Licensed Counselors • Marriage and Family Therapists • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Psychotherapists • Addiction Counselors • Occupational Therapists Course Description: Early in my career, I recognized a disconnect between neuroscience research and popular treatment strategies. While depression and anxiety are clearly rooted in altered brain function, most clinicians were not taught about specific neural circuits and neurotransmitters that contribute to these disorders. As a result, treatment plans for mood and anxiety disorders were often incomplete – many solutions uncovered by research were overlooked and strategies relied heavily on medication without any changes in a client’s action, activity and environment. There had to be a better way to treat these clients and improve outcomes! Today, I know that using proven cognitive-behavioral interventions like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Behavioral Activation Therapy (BAT) in conjunction with exercise, social support and positive habits yields powerful therapeutic effects. Expanding your understanding of the connection between biology and mental health provides you with a pragmatic and holistic lens through which you can view your clients and accommodate their different challenges. And, when your clients understand that what feels “wrong” is actually the activity and chemistry of particular brain circuits, it improves treatment buy-in and compliance. Join me for this must attend conference and I will show you how: • The biology of stress, anxiety and depression informs cognitive therapies like ACT, MBCT, and BAT • Information provided by neuroscientific research can improve treatment outcomes • Simple interventions modulate the activity and chemistry of key brain regions • You can effectively teach clients about complicated brain structures and functions Objectives: • Analyze findings from neuroscientific research exploring the connection between key brain regions, neurotransmitters, and mental health. • Communicate how understanding neurobiological processes can help clinicians establish realistic goals with clients and engage them in therapy. • Explore the role of the amygdala in stress and anxiety and communicate how labeling feelings and mindful awareness of emotions can be used to manage symptoms. • Characterize how habits relate to stress and connect this information to cognitive behavioral approaches that intervene in habit loops and reduce stress related symptoms. • Establish how neuroscience informed explanations of mental health disorders can bring objectivity into your discussions with clients and shift the way they feel about their pathology. • Assess the latest scientific research on gratitude and characterize the potential benefits and research limitations found in these studies.

Jan 21, 2020 | CEH 6.00 | San Jose, California
Exploring And Explaining The Workplace Violence And Burnout Epidemics is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Jan 21, 2020 at San Jose Marriott, San Jose, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of CE credit (6 CEHs). Description: Workplace violence is a growing epidemic in hospitals and other health care settings. Nurses and other health care workers encounter 5 to 12 times more workplace violence than workers overall in the United States. Simultaneously, nurses report extremely high rates of stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and burnout. Research has shown that as many as 86 percent of nurses report burnout syndrome and 22 percent of nurses have symptoms of PTSD. This class will investigate the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout and what they mean for nurses today. Using national and state-level data and peer-reviewed literature, we will examine the relationship between the structure and management of the health care industry and risk factors for workplace violence and nurse burnout. Understanding this relationship reveals powerful structural solutions to workplace violence, stress, and burnout for nurses. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Describe the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout among nurses. • Explain the impact of workplace violence and nurse burnout on patient care. • Discuss how direct care nurses can take steps to end the workplace violence and burnout epidemics. Note: CE courses are free to California Nurses Association and National Nurses United members and student nurses. For direct-care and staff RNs. Participants will be notified by U.S. mail and by email if a course is cancelled. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
