Anxiety in the Classroom is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 22, 2020 at Billings Hotel and Convention Center, Billings, Montana, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.25 clock hours of continuing education instruction. Target Audience: • Teachers • Social Workers • Psychologists • Counselors • School Administrators • Occupational Therapists • Principals • Assistant Principals • Speech-Language Pathologists • Marriage and Family Therapists • Other Helping Professionals who Work with Children Course Description: The increasing rate of stress and trauma to children, which includes divorce, global terrorism and violence, extensive technology use, media overload, bullying and diversity issues, has produced a “shell shocked” generation of students struggling to manage their anxiety. The challenge for those working in schools is to recognize the increasing anxiety level in students and help them cope. Janine E. Oliver, LCSW, MSW, CH will teach you how, why and when anxiety develops in young people. The various manifestations for anxiety will be described, so that anxious students can be recognized and supported. Janine will help you distinguish between normal anxiety and anxiety disorders, and give you a principle for making this distinction in school settings. Most importantly, you will learn practical strategies that can be applied immediately in the classroom setting and schools to reduce anxiety, enhance teaching effectiveness, and promote maximum learning. Objectives: • Design effective strategies to decrease the stress response in kids with learning disabilities to improve information processing, listening skills, and comprehension. • Summarize the different ways anxiety manifests in the classroom (worry, social isolation, attention deficits, etc.) and determine the appropriate strategy for reducing symptoms. • Implement a three-step skill building model for stress management among young clients. • Utilize classroom friendly calming and relaxation activities to keep students engaged. • Determine the signs of normal anxiety vs anxiety disorders to enhance teaching effectiveness. • Evaluate the impact deep breathing exercises have on anxiety to enable task completion in the classroom.

Dr. van Ingen will give you proven tools and techniques to: • Identify and treat the roots of anxiety in both the amygdala and the cortex • Explain “the language of the amygdala” in an accessible, straight forward way • Identify how the cortex contributes to anxiety, and empower clients with strategies to resist anxiety-igniting cognitions.

Objectives: • Ascertain the underlying neurological processes that impact anxious symptoms for clients. • Develop client engagement in treatment using personalized goals and attending to the therapeutic relationship. • Evaluate the differences between amygdala-based and cortex-based anxiety symptoms and identify how these symptoms inform treatment interventions. • Communicate strategies for calming and training the amygdala in order to alleviate symptoms of anxiety. • Implement methods for teaching clients to retrain the cortex so that anxiety is resisted rather than exacerbated. • Analyze how psychotropic medication impacts neuroplasticity in the brain; identify related treatment implications.

An Introduction to Vestibular Rehabilitation is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Mar 21 - 22, 2020 at Mary Alice Fortin Health Conference Center, Billings, Montana, United States of America. Course Description: This class focuses on providing an excellent framework for the clinician to effectively treat vestibular disorders. Like all of our courses, this vestibular physical therapy continuing education course focuses on teaching clinicians to actually treat disorders in this rapidly expanding area. One of the strengths of this course is that it applies to clinicians without any vestibular experience, providing ample tools to treat vestibular disorders, while still maintaining the interest and expanding the capabilities of clinicians more experienced in the field of Vestibular Rehabilitation. BPPV is covered at great length in this course. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Describe six key components of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system. • Discriminate between ten common pathophysiologic conditions of the vestibular system. • Complete a thorough interview of a patient and hypothesize three potential diagnoses using five key questions outlined in the manual. • Hypothesize the differential diagnosis of a mock patient who presents with vertigo versus dizziness. • Complete a thorough examination of a patient, and compare three subjective complaints to the objective findings. • Identify eight standardized assessment tools for use with patients with a vestibular disorder. • Perform three specific tests of vestibular function (VNG, Rotary Chair, and Sensory Organization Testing). • Correctly demonstrate the bedside oculomotor exam and interpret the results. • Distinguish between canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis and accurately locate the involved canal. • Justify the use of a specific treatment theory (habituation, adaptation, and/or substitution), and design a treatment plan specific to that patient, given a patient's diagnosis and findings through an objective exam. • Describe two potential psychological manifestations that may occur with prolonged episodes of dizziness. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
