But individuals with ADHD, Autism, OCD and other conditions have significant EF deficits – failing to thrive at school, work, home and in their most important relationships. Your work with individuals struggling with EF issues is some of your most rewarding – yet it’s often the work that leaves you the most frustrated and exhausted. Forgotten appointments, unfinished homework, distractibility, procrastination and difficulties organizing thoughts present formidable obstacles to making progress in school or therapy. And the strategies that work so well for other conditions seem to fall short when an EF deficit is present. Attend this seminar and get the targeted skills and tools you need to cultivate lasting change and transform the lives of those who struggle with executive deficits – the chronically lost, late and unprepared!

An author, researcher, and clinician with more than 20 years of groundbreaking work with Executive Functions, Dr. McCloskey will teach you how to develop customized interventions that can be used with students or clients across multiple settings from the private practice office to the classroom. Practical and easy to apply, Dr. McCloskey’s strategies will help those you serve develop critical time/task management, personal organization & planning skills, empowering them to elevate their academic and employment performance, relationships, physical & mental health, and more! Objectives: • Analyze a comprehensive neuropsychological model of executive functions. • Communicate how executive function difficulties are manifested in individuals diagnosed with various psychological disorders and/or enrolled in special education programs. • Apply effective assessment techniques based on a multidimensional framework to determine executive function strengths and weaknesses and to target specific intervention needs. • Determine strategies that are appropriate for fostering executive function development and/or for intervening when executive function difficulties are identified. • Implement strategies that bridge the gap between “external control” and “internal self-regulation”. • Summarize how mindfulness, CBT and other evidence-based programs that foster executive function development and/or remediate difficulties.

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment for Healing PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and More (Jan 30, 2020)
Jan 30, 2020 | CME 6.00 | USD $250 | Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment for Healing PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and More is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jan 30, 2020 at Embassy Suites by Hilton Oklahoma City Will Rogers Airport, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Course Description: We all know what it is to feel conflicting emotions, “a part of me wants to … and a part of me does not”. For our clients, this kind of inner emotional conflict can become intense, even debilitating. Why, they wonder, are their relationships unstable? Why are they sometimes enraged and other times too passive? Why do symptoms persist? Can they ever really ‘get over’ traumatic childhood experiences? They may notice a part of them wants to deal with it and another part is hopeless. Internal Family Systems offers unique, clarifying, and empowering methods for addressing these common clinical concerns. Some models of psychotherapy regard having multiple internal “parts” as pathological. NOT in IFS. IFS views the multiplicity of the mind as normal. Every part has a positive intention and every part has value. All clients can heal. IFS aligns the therapist with the innate wisdom of the client. IFS cultivates compassion. IFS is a powerful treatment modality. Once you experience it you will want to incorporate it into your practice. In developing IFS 30 years ago, creator Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., realized that clients were describing experiences with various conflicting roles and extreme behaviors within themselves. He noticed that when parts felt heard and safe and had their concerns addressed, clients became calm and less reactive. They could begin to make different and better decisions. IFS therapy helps clients to find safe ways to connect to early childhood emotions, to transform negative beliefs, to feel grounded in their true self, and to achieve lasting change in their lives. IFS has established a legacy of effectiveness in successfully treating many mental health issues and is being heralded as the treatment that all clinicians should know in order to treat clients more effectively (van der Kolk 2015).
