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 26, 2019 at Four Points by Sheraton Wakefield Boston Hotel & Conference Center, Wakefield, 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.
