Dr. Donarski 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 Register today for this transformational workshop and put the power of neuroplasticity to work for you and your anxious clients! 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.

Using these techniques will enable you to accomplish quickly what can often be missed in months of regular talk therapies, counseling or behavior modification reward systems. You’ll learn how to stop pre-delinquent clients’ manipulations such as victim playing, power struggling, denial, minimizing, defiance, evasive lying, excuse making, blaming, and justifying. You’ll learn key strategies for “reading” misbehavior to uncover its underlying needs and motivations.

Discover powerful techniques to divert and reduce hostility and revenge in oppositional, predatory, violent adolescents and young adults. You’ll be able to introduce presocial adaptive behaviors that develop conscience and satisfy their unmet needs that trigger misbehavior. Objectives: • Use at least 5 clinical interventions to reduce attention-seeking misbehavior in clients. • Demonstrate at least 4 clinical interviewing strategies to address resistance, reduce defensiveness and build trust with clients. • Implement at least 5 intervention methods to reduce power-displaying misbehavior in clients. • Incorporate effective interventions to help clients express anger in a constructive, healthy manner. • Teach caregivers behavioral strategies to increase compliance and cooperation at home and school. • Assess the client’s worldview and interpret the meaning behind maladaptive behavior in order to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Self-Regulation Interventions for Children & Adolescents: Reduce Frustration, Emotional Outbursts & Oppositional Behaviors is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 26, 2020 at Ramada by Wyndham Fargo, Fargo, North Dakota, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

They may “hit first and ask questions later”. They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home. Join Andrea Cennington, MSW, LCSW, CYT, and learn to effectively intervene with the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders. Through hands-on activities and dynamic discussion, you will learn techniques, behavioral strategies, problem-solving strategies and brain training exercises to: • Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them • Increase their self-control, social success, emotional control and task completion • Teach flexibility, tolerance, thinking it through and decision-making • Reduce the frequency and duration of their tantrums and emotional outbursts Walk away with proven emotional, behavioral and processing strategies that lead to social and academic success! Objectives: • Communicate how sensory, language, and executive skills impairments create fight/flight/freeze and defensive responses that lead to children’s dysregulation and related behavioral issues. • Select the appropriate intervention strategies to improve student skills including self-control, social success, emotional regulation and task completion. • Employ behavior modification techniques and problem-solving strategies to diffuse student’s escalated and oppositional behavior. • Implement environmental strategies to accommodate children’s processing deficits and emotional regulation needs. • Utilize problem-solving strategies to develop appropriate behavioral expectations and coping mechanisms for improved self-regulation skills in students. • Apply cognitive restructuring strategies to reduce frequency, severity and duration of children’s behavioral and emotional outbursts.

Functional Strength: An Updated Approach to Exercising our Patients is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Jul 11 - 12, 2020 at Fargo, North Dakota, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 continuing education hours.

Finally, apply concepts learned in class to build a program that is customized to your patient. This course will progress from basic fundamentals to advanced, high-level athletic plyometric training. As with all Great Lakes courses, it will be 75-80% hands-on but attendees aren't required to perform all of the exercises shown in the class. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Given a case study, assess functional weakness in a patient using the four pathological barriers to ideal/optimal movement. • Perform an assessment of a dysfunctional movement pattern and specifically identify 2 primary and 1-2 secondary compensatory movements occurring due to weakness and/or pain. • Accurately justify the use of functional strength testing versus manual muscle testing when assessing a patient. • Properly exhibit and/or correctly perform 4 exercises using a functional approach to muscle activity. • Correctly state the rationale for an in-depth functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk. • Properly execute an in-depth functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk. • Correctly apply force couples, synergies, and muscle slings to the body to address function-specific strength deficits. • Develop and implement a comprehensive functional exercise program, progressing from basic to advanced levels for patients. Topics Covered: • Overview of the principles of functional muscle assessment • Differentiation between muscle action and muscle function • Proper technique for open kinetic chain exercises and closed kinetic chain exercises • Functional Exercises for the upper body • Functional exercises for the lower body • Functional exercise for the trunk/core • Exercises using body weight, therapy ball, resistance bands and foam roller
