Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Counselors • Marriage and Family Therapists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Other Mental Health Professionals Conference Description: Transform your practice with this intensive 2-day Anxiety Treatment Certification training and get the skills, proven strategies, and interventions you need to take your treatment of anxiety to the next level! You’ll learn how to more skillfully assess clients, differentiate between various anxiety presentations, fully engage clients in treatment, and effectively use tools from CBT, mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and contemplative practices to enhance clinical outcomes. And expert guidance on combining brain-based principles, body-oriented techniques and traditional psychotherapeutic approaches will change the way you work with challenging clients whose anxiety is exacerbated by shame, self-judgement, and attachment issues. Plus, completion of this two-day training meets the educational requirements should you choose to apply to become a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) (visit the Institute of Certified Anxiety Treatment Professionals at (www.icatp.com) for full details and certification requirements). Conference Objectives are: • Establish how stories and metaphors can be used as psychoeducational tools to explain the physiology of anxiety, and how contemplative approaches impact the anxious brain and body. • Articulate distinctions in differentiating among anxiety disorders and assessing physical symptomatology. • Provide an explanation of how medication impacts neuroplasticity and determine when medication serves to enhance or derail anxiety treatment. • Specify how individualized, awareness-based interventions can be used by clinicians to enhance client efforts towards change and reduce avoidance. • Communicate how evidence-based contemplative approaches can address self-judgment, worry, and negative thinking that can exacerbate anxiety symptoms. • Characterize how visual meditations can increase clients’ ability to focus attention and reduce rumination. • Analyze the research on the impacts of meditative movement on anxiety symptomology. • Establish how breathing practices can interrupt obsessive thinking, ritualized behaviors, and reassurance seeking. • Specify how treatment plans that employ reframing techniques can interrupt anxiety-producing thoughts. • Assess whether attachment style impacts treatment outcomes amongst clients undergoing treatment for social anxiety disorder. • Communicate how script-based, brief deep relaxation exercises can be implemented to increase feelings of safety and enhance emotional regulation. • Explore how journaling can be used as a clinical tool to shift clients away from anxious thoughts and toward action-oriented change. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

FM LQ: Functional Mobilization Lower Quadrant is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Nov 21 - 24, 2019 at Inova Physical Therapy Center, Fairfax, Virginia, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This approach developed and taught by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, presents the dynamic principles and procedures of Functional MobilizationTM as an evaluation and treatment component of the Functional Manual Therapy® treatment model. Functional MobilizationTM couples active and resisted movement (PNF) with soft tissue and joint mobilization to facilitate normalization of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions. The participant is trained to evaluate each movement segment through the use of PNF patterns and to combine the selective pattern into the full trunk and extremity patterns. Instruction will emphasize the treatment of both hypomobile structures and the stabilization of hypermobile segments with prolonged holds to promote activation of the core muscle’s contraction. Functional MobilizationTM dynamically integrates the principles and procedures of PNF with soft tissue and joint mobilization for each technique. Instruction will emphasize mobile and hypermobile structures, stabilize hypermobile articulations and reeducation of the motor system. Course Objectives: • Develop specific Functional Mobilization™ progression strategies to enhance functional capacity of the lower quadrant. • Develop competence in the assessment and treatment of focus areas: lumbar spine, sacrum, innominate, coccyx, hip, knee and lower limb neurovascular treatment. • Develop home exercises to augment the treatment program. • Discuss the evidence for the FMLQ material. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
