Jan 20, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249.99 | Charlotte, North Carolina
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 Jan 20, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Charlotte/Ayrsley, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.25 hours of continuing education credit. 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 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: Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to: • 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.

Many patients have difficulty describing upper extremity symptoms, so localizing the problem can be a challenge. Scar tissue and edema often limit tissue gliding so much that it interferes with exercises and functional tasks. And when standard treatment protocols fall short of expectations, this can leave your patients frustrated, pained by activities that give them purpose, and resigned to surgical options. But with the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation, helping your patients achieve their functional goals is easier than ever. Sign up now for this hands-on training, and learn how to get to the root cause of impairment faster with a comprehensive assessment that combines the best evaluations currently available. Revolutionize your therapy toolbox with innovative interventions you can use immediately to accelerate progress. And design advanced plans of care for a variety of common upper extremity diagnoses, fluently combining techniques for optimal outcomes. Join the former president of the American Society of Hand Therapists, Kristin Valdes, as she guides you through a proven framework for upper extremity rehabilitation that has helped countless patients regain lost function and rediscover life without the pain. Objectives: • Evaluate the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation and their implications for your patients. • Demonstrate a comprehensive assessment, identifying and differentiating root causes of pain and impairment. • Integrate the most effective interventions for restoring function and improving ROM, strength, dexterity, mobility, stability, proprioception and sensation. • Combine multiple approaches for better outcomes, including provocative testing, neuromuscular reeducation, elastic taping, graded motor imagery, mirror therapy, eccentric exercises and more. • Design effective, innovative plans of care for a wide range of upper extremity diagnoses. • Apply the assessments and interventions discussed in this seminar to a series of interactive case scenarios.

The increasing rate of stress and trauma to children, which includes divorce, family breakdown, violence in society, the media, and a failing school system, has produced a “shell shocked” generation suffering from anxiety in many cases. The challenge for clinicians is to recognize anxiety in children and help them cope. Dr. Paul Foxman will present a template for how and why anxiety develops in children and adolescents. He will present practical treatment strategies that can be applied immediately. The seven key anxiety disorders along with case examples to be addressed include: • Separation anxiety disorder • Panic disorder • Overanxious disorder • Obsessive-compulsive disorder • Social anxiety disorder • Phobias • Post-traumatic stress disorder Other co-occurring disorders (e.g. behavior problems, medical conditions, depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, selective mutism) will also be discussed. Emphasis will be on creative interventions involving insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, biological, mindfulness, expressive arts and family systems approaches. Objectives: • Apply the “Three Ingredients” framework for understanding how, why and when anxiety occurs in children. • Draw from 10 specific stress-management strategies to target the "when" factor in child and adolescent anxiety. • Recommend 8 steps teachers can take to reduce anxiety in the classroom for more focused attention. • Implement at least one effective treatment strategy for each of the 7 key anxiety disorders to modify sources of stress. • Designate 3 steps that schools can take to create a safe, calm environment for meeting the needs of anxious students. • Create a therapeutic alliance with parents to improve the effectiveness of clinical treatment with anxious kids.
