Today's Best Treatments for the Upper Extremity: Rapidly Resolve Hand, Wrist & Elbow Problems with Ease is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 06, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Charlotte/Ayrsley, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours/ 6.0 contact hours or 0.6 CEUs/ 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™/ 6.0 continuing education hours. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Athletic Trainers • Strength and Conditioning Specialists • Exercise Physiologists • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants Course Description: When you’re working with upper extremity patients, sometimes progress can feel like an uphill battle. 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.

Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents: Recognizing & Treating the Emerging Epidemic - Charlotte
Feb 26, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Charlotte, North Carolina
Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents: Recognizing & Treating the Emerging Epidemic is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 26, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Charlotte/Ayrsley, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours or 0.6 CEUs / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Counselors • Teachers • School Administrators • Occupational Therapists • Speech-Language Pathologists • Marriage and Family Therapists • Other Helping Professionals who Work with Children Course Description: Anxiety disorders are now recognized as the most common emotional problem in 10 out of 17 countries surveyed by the World Health Organization, including the United States. 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.

Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits (Mar 18, 2020)
Mar 18, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Charlotte, North Carolina
Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 18, 2020 at Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte Ayrsley, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Speech-Language Pathologists • Certified Brain Injury Specialists • Recreational Therapists • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Social Workers • Physician Assistants 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.
