Dec 05, 2019 | Contact Hours 6.30 | Cromwell, Connecticut
Complex Feeding & Swallowing Problems in Children: Discover the Underlying Causes of Food Refusal for a More Targeted Treatment Plan is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 05, 2019 at Courtyard by Marriott Hartford Cromwell, Cromwell, Connecticut, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 contact hours or .6 CEUs. Target Audience: • Speech-Language Pathologists • Speech-Language Pathology Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Dieticians • Dietary managers • Physical Therapists • Nurses • Early Childhood Special Education Staff • Other Helping Professionals who Work with Children Conference Description: The causes of feeding and swallowing difficulties in children are always multifaceted, sometimes misdiagnosed, and often difficult to assess and treat appropriately. Respiratory difficulties, gastrointestinal function, oral-motor skills, and behavioral issues are just a few of the elements that can influence feeding and swallowing, limit response to treatment, and result in significant health issues. To maximize effectiveness, we as clinicians, must resist the temptation to assess and treat feeding and swallowing disorders in isolation; instead, they must develop management plans that take into account interactions between and among oral-motor, gastrointestinal, and respiratory systems. This essential course shows complex feeding and swallowing disorders as they manifest themselves in children who have a variety of diagnoses. You will gain successful strategies for identification of the underlying etiology of the dysphagia. The evidence base for specific therapies, including oral-motor techniques, behavioral interventions, nutritional interventions, and strategies for respiratory control, are evaluated. You’ll leave this course armed with practical techniques and tactics for improving function in these challenging children, as well as strong evidence to support those strategies. Conference Objectives are: • Examine the interplay between oral-motor, gastrointestinal, and respiratory systems and their impact on food refusal in children in order to expand volume and variety of intake. • Identify the signs and symptoms of pharyngeal dysphagia in children to prevent aspiration associated illnesses. • Pinpoint advantages and challenges associated with dietary modifications and use of thickened liquids with a goal of increasing safe oral intake. • Discuss the rationale for various dietary recommendations currently being implemented with children in order to separate fact from fiction about special diets. • Determine the pros and cons of various oral-motor & sensory treatment approaches to maximize safe, pleasurable eating and drinking in children. • Develop a behavioral treatment plan to address problem feeding behaviors including food refusal, limited food repertoire, low volume of intake, and rigidity around foods and utensils. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Sensory Integration: Assessing and Treating Kids When Formal Testing Isn't Possible is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 12, 2019 at Red Lion Hotel Cromwell, Cromwell, Connecticut, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours / 6.25 clock hours of continuing education instruction / 6.25 hours of continuing education credit. Target Audience: • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Educators • Speech-Language Pathologists • Counselors • Psychologists • Social Workers • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants Description: Many of the children we work with are unable to take tests which require a good attention span and the ability to follow directions. These children may have ADD, ADHD or ASD. However, we need to be able to identify those deficits which are interfering with their ability to learn at school, participate in family activities and promote friendships. Today you will expand your knowledge of sensory processing activities, and enhance your effectiveness to work with these children! You will learn to identify which deficits have a sensory integration foundation, and thus be able to use treatment techniques to improve the quality of life for the kids you work with every day! In this workshop, I will teach you: how to identify behaviors which are sensory, determine underlying sensory systems which may be contributing to these behaviors, plan treatment strategies to help them more fully participate in school, community and home activities, and practice documenting your services. Objectives: • Chart the characteristics of sensory modulation, sensory-based motor and sensory discrimination disorders. • Choose questions for parent interviews which will help you distinguish the presence and type of sensory processing disorder. • Discriminate between the 3 major sensory systems in order to apply the appropriate sensory experience for the children. • Assess the primary characteristics of Ayres SI and contrast those with other sensory-based interventions. • Propose appropriate treatment goals based on analysis of deficits. • Produce appropriate treatment activities and equipment which will improve sensory processing. • Plan sensory-based intervention strategies for parents and teachers. • Measure progress to justify third party reimbursement.

Ten Best-Ever Anxiety Treatment Techniques is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 23, 2020 at Courtyard by Marriott Hartford Cromwell, Cromwell, Connecticut, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. 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: Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg will assist you in shaping the 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Techniques to your needs and will discuss: • How to apply the techniques in difficult cases • How these techniques apply to different age groups • How these techniques can help with clients who have co-morbid diagnoses • How to use these techniques with groups or individuals and in different types of psychological services: private practice, hospital units, classrooms, nursing facilities, etc. This fresh approach will give you a complete set of tools to work with anxiety symptoms. Cutting-edge research tells clinicians not only what is new, but also tells us why what we have done best over the years works to help clients achieve positive results in therapy. In this seminar, you will learn, practice and be ready to apply 10 techniques that really work to stop symptoms of panic, worry and social anxiety. These 10 proven methods can control most symptoms of panic, generalized anxiety and social anxiety. Through in-seminar practice and discussion case vignettes to illustrate their applications – you can make them strong, effective and lasting interventions. Methods that control physiology: diaphragmatic breathing, reducing tension, mindful awareness to offset panic or acute anxiety can be easy to learn but not simple to apply. We will discuss how to make them effective with different age groups and difficult clients if you want to obtain the best results for calming panic and dread. Likewise, controlling the cognitive problems of anxiety, such as catastrophizing or ruminatively worrying, challenge most with anxiety. Learn powerful techniques that cool off worry (“Worry well and only once!” “Knowing, Not Showing Anger”), and challenge faulty cognitions, the obstacles to improving panic and social anxiety (“Counter Cognitions”, etc.). You can help your clients identify and change the ways they avoid their social anxiety. Case examples will clarify planned re-entry to triggering situations, handling the stress of preparation and conducting in vivo exposure. Objectives: • Articulate the neurobiological causes of panic, generalized anxiety, and social anxiety and ascertain how this information impacts treatment decisions. • Implement strategies for stress management to reduce symptoms of anxiety in clients, including lifestyle changes, cognitive interventions and time management tools. • Model effective use of diaphragmatic breathing techniques for physiological modulation in the treatment of anxiety. • Communicate how memory reconsolidation assists clients in identifying their anxiety triggers and interrupt the common cognitions that often lead to panic attacks. • Integrate specific clinical techniques to address persistent worry and understand how this changes the neurobiology of ruminative thought patterns in clients. • Utilize cognitive therapy interventions with clients to manage perfectionism, procrastination and rigid approaches to problems.
