Course Description: The increasing rate of stress and trauma to children, which includes divorce, global terrorism and violence, extensive technology use, media overload, bullying and diversity issues, has produced a “shell shocked” generation of students struggling to manage their anxiety. The challenge for those working in schools is to recognize the increasing anxiety level in students and help them cope. Janine E. Oliver, LCSW, MSW, CH will teach you how, why and when anxiety develops in young people. The various manifestations for anxiety will be described, so that anxious students can be recognized and supported. Janine will help you distinguish between normal anxiety and anxiety disorders, and give you a principle for making this distinction in school settings. Most importantly, you will learn practical strategies that can be applied immediately in the classroom setting and schools to reduce anxiety, enhance teaching effectiveness, and promote maximum learning. Objectives: • Design effective strategies to decrease the stress response in kids with learning disabilities to improve information processing, listening skills, and comprehension. • Summarize the different ways anxiety manifests in the classroom (worry, social isolation, attention deficits, etc.) and determine the appropriate strategy for reducing symptoms. • Implement a three-step skill building model for stress management among young clients. • Utilize classroom friendly calming and relaxation activities to keep students engaged. • Determine the signs of normal anxiety vs anxiety disorders to enhance teaching effectiveness. • Evaluate the impact deep breathing exercises have on anxiety to enable task completion in the classroom.

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 Feb 28, 2020 at Hilton Brentwood/Nashville Suites, Brentwood, Tennessee, United States of America. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Addiction Counselors • Marriage and Family Therapists • Therapists • Other Professionals Who Work within the Mental Health Fields Course Description: We all know what it is to feel conflicting emotions – “a part of me wants to .. and then there’s a part of me that does not “. For our clients, this kind of inner emotional conflict can become intense, even debilitating. Why, they wonder, are their relationships so unstable? Why are they sometimes enraged and other times too passive? Why do symptoms persist? Can they ever really ‘get over’ their traumatic childhood experiences? They may notice a part of them wants to deal with it and another part is hopeless. Internal Family Systems (IFS) offers unique, clarifying and empowering methods for addressing these common clinical issues. 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 behavior 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 effective (van der Kolk 2015). Join Fran Booth, LICSW, IFS Trainer and colleague of Dr. Richard Schwartz, for this transformational training day. Learn all that IFS therapy can do for you and your clients. Clients will leave your office with increased calm and clarity and will notice more successful interactions in their everyday lives. You will renew your hope in the possibility of change for yourself and others. This training is rich with teachings, videos, experiential exercises, and mini-demos. It will offer you proven techniques to immediately apply in your clinical practice! Objectives: • Investigate Internal Family Systems (IFS) concepts, steps and techniques to broaden treatment intervention options. • Discover how IFS brings a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders by translating common comorbidities into parts language. • Examine the IFS view that client symptoms and psychopathology are attempts to solve an emotional problem. • View a clinical session to deepen one’s understanding of IFS treatment strategies. • Practice clinical interventions to enhance effectiveness in sessions. • Consider the benefits of applying IFS to one’s current clinical practice.
