Trauma Informed Compassionate Classrooms: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behavior, Improve Learning Outcomes and Increase Student Engagement 2019 - Albuequerque
Dec 10, 2019 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249.99 | Albuquerque, New Mexico
Trauma Informed Compassionate Classrooms: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behavior, Improve Learning Outcomes and Increase Student Engagement is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 10, 2019 at Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.25 clock hours of continuing education. Target Audience: • General Educators • Special Educators • School Administrators • School Psychologists • Social Workers • Guidance Counselors • School Nurses • Directors of Special Education • Speech-Language Pathologists • Occupational Therapists • Paraprofessionals Course Description: As an educator, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of all your students. This can be challenging enough with typical learners but it is even more difficult with those who have experienced trauma or have mental health challenges. Students who have experienced trauma often present as difficult to engage and display problematic behavior such as a low frustration tolerance, angry outbursts or difficult social relationships. These behaviors all get in the way of teaching and learning. When a student has experienced trauma, he/she often spends much of the day in fight/flight/freeze mode which limits their capacity to learn. Their outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviors also disrupt the flow in the classroom, requiring your time and attention. Despite the amount of time you invest in behavior charts or incentives for good behavior, traditional behavioral approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective. Join Dr. Reese and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behavior, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this seminar with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviors and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion. While this positive approach is absolutely essential for students with trauma, it will also greatly benefit each and every student in your classroom. Return to your school with: • Research-based practices to establish a trauma-informed classroom • A plan to develop positive relationships and build trust with your hard-to-reach students • Prove techniques for communicating more effectively and collaboratively with challenging students • Cognitive skill-building strategies which incorporate the science of neuroplasticity and the strengths-based perspective of neurodiversity Objectives: • Analyze the ways in which poverty and mental health contribute to trauma responses thus informing your approach to working with all students. • Determine how trauma impacts a child’s development and develop strategies for meeting his or her needs. • Explore how exposure to adverse childhood experiences determines the likelihood of developmental trauma and its impact on level of functioning across the lifespan. • Establish a collaborative approach to discipline and demonstrate how this fosters intrinsic motivation for behavior change in the child. • Practice techniques to establish positive relationships and build trust with hard-to-reach students thus increasing their social and academic success. • Explore mindfulness activities that foster student self-awareness, self-regulation and the ability to focus as it relates to impulsive behavior and attention.

Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits (Dec 13, 2019)
Dec 13, 2019 | Contact Hours 6.00 | USD $229.99 | Albuquerque, New Mexico
Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 13, 2019 at Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Speech-Language Pathologists • Certified Brain Injury Specialists • Recreational Therapists Course Description: Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion. In this one-day seminar, participants will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the course are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Course content will also include patient-focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to utilize by treating practitioners. Objectives: • Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to behavioral control. • Characterize the neurophysiology of memory and effect of fear/anger upon new learning and memory. • Analyze the effect of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries upon cognitive centers. • Connect neurotransmitters with the communication system within the brain. • Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement and accuracy in therapy. • Recommend simple neuroanatomy-based techniques to rapidly de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers. • Assess neuro-behavioral barriers that impact new learning.
