Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists • Chaplains/Clergy • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: Debilitating and complex, shame is among the most destructive of human emotions. Depression, violence, anxiety – it emerges in a variety of ways that are profoundly damaging to your clients’ lives and the lives of those around them. Working with clients experiencing unhealthy shame presents you with a formidable therapeutic challenge. How do you effectively manage something that hides in the shadows … that by its very nature is so excruciating that it pushes people toward avoidance? How do you heal something that lurks behind masks of anger and defensiveness? How do you break through to suffering individuals who’ve spent a lifetime viewing themselves as wrong, unlovable, and unworthy of getting better? Stop letting shame derail the therapeutic process and transform how you work with shame-driven clients. Attend this seminar and help your clients end avoidance, face their shame, and rewrite their story of dysfunctional self-worth and condemnation into one of compassionate acceptance. Key Benefits of attending: • Teach clients to manage shame without resorting to destructive measures. • Reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity with mindfulness. • Cultivate secure self-attachment with somatic approaches. • Discover how shame complicates trauma treatment and how addressing shame can help you expedite recovery. • Build resiliency to shame with interventions based on empathy, forgiveness and compassion. Course Objectives: • Enhance client attunement with clinical strategies that replicate conditions for healthy attachment. • Characterize how shame complicates the treatment of trauma and specify how shame can be worked with in traumatized clients. • Evaluate how shame can be addressed in your treatment plans with self-forgiveness interventions that can help facilitate recovery. • Communicate how anxiety generated by feelings of shame can be managed with breathing techniques that can be taught in-session. • Establish how depressed clients can manage shame generated negative emotions with imagery-based compassion exercises. • Analyze how mindfulness can be incorporated into therapy with shame-prone clients to reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity.

2-Day Managing Patient Emergencies: Critical Care Skills Every Nurse Must Know is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held from May 20 - 21, 2019 at Hilton Boston/Dedham, Dedham, Massachusetts, United States of America. Target Audience: • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists Conference Description: Mrs. Kelp is admitted with pneumonia and right-sided heart failure. Twenty minutes after admission, she develops worsening dyspnea and hypotension. • Are you prepared to manage her unstable condition? • Do you know what respiratory measures are necessary? • Do you know the best way to manage her hypotension? The patients in our hospitals are sicker than ever before. It is not uncommon to find patients on regular medical floors with central lines, chest tubes, pacemakers and AICDs. Some nursing homes are accepting patients on ventilators, and patients are now being sent home on vasoactive drips such as dobutamine. Even though acuity levels are higher, you are still caring for many patients and don't have the luxury of frequent, comprehensive assessments. Therefore, it is important to be able to rapidly assess and implement appropriate interventions. Attend this seminar to sharpen your skills and leave prepared to identify and manage your next patient emergency! Conference Objectives: • Describe two types of rapid assessment techniques and how to employ them for the best results during a patient emergency. • Evaluate techniques for getting critical information during a rapid patient assessment. • Investigate EARLY assessment findings in clinical syndromes that may progress rapidly and cause life-threatening conditions. • Prioritize nursing actions for specific neurological, cardiac, respiratory and endocrine emergencies. • Review care of the diabetic patient in diabetic ketoacidosis versus HHNK/HHS. • Define heart failure with regards to left- and right-sided failure. • Identify patient populations who are at high-risk for bedside emergencies. • Discuss how to integrate assessment data and critical lab findings into the plan of care for a patient experiencing a life-threatening emergency. • Explain a strategic approach in evaluating abdominal pain for the most accurate assessment. • Contrast the difference between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke in both symptoms and treatment priorities. • Recognize the most common causes of arterial blood gas abnormalities. • Analyze pain management and sedation options for the patient experiencing an acute illness.

Adverse Experiences: A Structured Approach for More Effective Assessment, Treatment Planning and Interventions for Trauma Based on the ACEs Study - Dedham
Jun 25, 2019 | USD $229.99 | Dedham, Massachusetts
Adverse Experiences: A Structured Approach for More Effective Assessment, Treatment Planning and Interventions for Trauma Based on the ACEs Study is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jun 25, 2019 at Hilton Boston/Dedham, Dedham, Massachusetts, United States of America. Target Audience: • Counselors • Psychotherapists • Psychologists • Social Workers • Addiction Counselors • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Mental Health Professionals Course Description: I once worked with a client who was diagnosed with panic disorder after experiencing a horrific car accident. Utilizing traditional talk therapy over the course of nine months, it became clear that her symptoms were not improving; in fact, they were getting worse. She was no longer working, avoided driving or riding in cars, had gained weight, developed chronic pain and suffered from insomnia – all while in treatment where she was supposed to be getting better! I was at a loss as to where to go with therapy. Then (at last!) there was a breakthrough! It didn’t happen by accident – I had discovered a new approach for assessment based on the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study and implemented it with this client. Together we uncovered a long history of traumatic experiences that were the foundation of her symptoms – not only the car accident. Based on this, we charted a very specific course of treatment and, within just 8 sessions, her symptoms had dramatically improved. She was back to work, driving with minimal distress, was panic-free, sleeping adequately and had begun exercising! Success! Attend this highly experiential training to learn this strengths-based approach that is grounded in multiple empirically-based disciplines, including EMDR, CBT, MBSR and positive psychology. Integrate this approach to more effectively treat: • PTSD • Depression • Anxiety • Phobias • Substance abuse • Eating disorders • Somatization disorders • Chronic pain • General illness • many other clinical issues Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
