This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 clock hours of continuing education instruction. Course Description: One of the biggest mistakes you as a clinician can make is NOT asking about the client’s sleeping habits. We all know the necessity of sleep – especially for those who are depressed, anxious, obsessively worried, or in chronic pain – yet often we overlook this. And worse, we think there’s nothing we can do to help them. Join me, Meg Danforth Lineberger, and I’ll show you successful, proven techniques I’ve developed over nearly 20 years on how to optimize your clients sleep – without medication! Discover evidence-based strategies to help your clients increase energy during the day, sleep more deeply, and re-initiate sleep after hot flashes, panic attacks or nightmares. The strategies I will show you can be easily integrated into existing treatment for depression, chronic pain, trauma and anxiety. Take the next step and join me today, I will help you learn new assessment tools, step-by-step CBT, and counter-arousal strategies that your client can immediately use. My engaging workshop will include discussion of case vignettes, experiential exercises, examples of sleep logs and other tools to use in your clinical practice. Course Objectives: • Select assessment tools that screen for other sleep disorders and identify insomnia treatment targets as it relates to case conceptualization. • Teach clients about the science of sleep, causes of chronic insomnia, and the impact on overall mental health. • Explore three models of CBT-I delivery and implementation issues for different practice settings. • Specify why CBT-I is effective for clients with co-occurring issues such as pain, depression, anxiety or trauma. • Set-up treatment strategies that clients can easily implement to manage fatigue. • Collaboratively design a sleep schedule with clients using a sleep diary to improve client's sleep efficiency and daytime functioning.

Suicide & Self-Harm: Stopping the Pain is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Sep 26, 2018 at The Grove Hotel - Boise, Boise, Idaho, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 clock hours of continuing education instruction. Course Description: After examining the goals of suicide and the goals that the self-mutilator desires to achieve, you will delve into treatment strategies that will help guide your client to achieve those goals with other, less damaging strategies. You will learn which personality types are most vulnerable to acts of suicide and self-mutilation, as well as the essential link between these behaviors and addiction disorders. Most importantly, your attention will be focused on the treatment relationship and the key to hope for both the suicidal and the self-harm clients. Course Objectives: • Implement a risk assessment strategy that helps clinicians determine which clients present the highest risk for suicide and self-harm. • Analyze the concept of suicide “contracts” and communicate their impacts on clients, clinicians, and clinical vigilance. • Explain how intent differentiates self-mutilation from suicide attempts and accurately identify the one form of self-mutilation that is a warning sign of potential suicide completion. • Implement techniques for effectively intervening in crisis situations and develop a strategy for determining when and how to hospitalize clients. • Articulate the role of addictions in the suicidal and self-mutilating population and employ a multi-faceted therapeutic approach that ensures client safety and addresses the treatment of the addiction. • Determine the purpose of self-injuring behavior and communicate how alternative coping strategies can be introduced in therapy to help clients manage triggering situations without self-harm. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Complex Feeding Issues: Sensory, Motor & Behavior Techniques for Autism, Cerebral Palsy & Other Developmental Delays is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Oct 22, 2018 at The Riverside Hotel, Boise, Idaho, United States of America. Course Description: Do you work with special needs children who cry or scream, throw food, refuse to sit at a table and eat, or refuse to try new foods? Do you know children who eat only a limited number of foods or only eat the same food over and over? Is going to a restaurant out of the question for the families you work with? Attend this seminar to get the strategies you need to make mealtimes more peaceful and positive! You will learn much more than the sensory issues causing these feeding difficulties; we will examine behaviour issues as well as oral motor difficulties. Through the use of video case examples, I will show you treatment strategies, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises to gain the knowledge needed to successfully treat feeding difficulties in children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and more. Walk away with advanced techniques to: • Evaluate the causes of mealtime difficulties: behaviour, sensory, oral motor, or a combination • Increase range of foods, decrease food jags • Blend motor and sensory to address feeding delays in cerebral palsy • Increase jaw strength and decrease ineffective lip closure, or poor tongue lateralization • Use deep breathing and proprioceptive input to address self-regulation at the table • Develop tactile, auditory and smell to increase participation for kids w/decreased vision or cortical impairment • Educate parents and caregivers to promote carryover at home Course Objectives: • Evaluate how sensory processing, behaviour and oral motor skills impact or interfere with each child’s ability to eat. • Role play how to implement sensory techniques during and prior to meal times to address difficulties such as not wanting to touch certain foods or sitting at the table. • Implement oral motor exercises and strategies to promote feeding patterns such as rotary chewing pattern, lip closure and tongue lateralization. • Explore the misconceptions about feeding that impact special needs children. • Evaluate the behaviours that interfere with eating and devise strategies to address the behaviour. • Support and guide the parents, caregivers and other family members through often emotional or stressful meal times.
