Target Audience: • Occupational Therapists • Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Speech-Language Pathologists • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants • Nurses Course Description: Feeling lost in determining a treatment plan with a neurological client? Have you asked yourself: • What is the best evidence-based therapy protocol? • How do you know if you are facing a field loss or a neglect? • How do you determine visual function when your client is confused? • Is this a vision or cognitive impairment? Michelle has been in that fog and come out the other side with wonderful, functional, and cost-conscience options to show and share. She sustains that therapy should be specific to the client’s challenge and that requires an astute awareness of the impairment. This insight comes from clear assessments that are revealed in this course, along with functional treatment interventions to ensure successful therapy sessions. Michelle shares anecdotes and case studies that highlight how the protocols can be put in to practice. These stories assist in enlightening the inexperienced therapist and commiserating with the experienced therapist. The course content is largely interactive and offers numerous lab sessions proving the engaging experience that therapists crave.

For some students, these issues escalate into more severe and complex behaviors that cause harm to both themselves and others. These students often become emotionally withdrawn, exhibit extreme mood swings, become severely depressed and may even resort to self-harm and/or suicide. These issues pose a serious challenge to you and your school. As an educator, you are in the unique position to identify, help and support these struggling students.

Objectives: • Integrate techniques to build students’ social/emotional skills, thus increasing the likelihood to establish positive relationships. • Recommend effective methods to detect the hidden signs of depression, self-harm & suicide and put to practical use in the schools. • Implement techniques that promote resiliency among all students thus improving their social and academic success. • Explore a collaborative approach to integrate SEL into the curriculum. • Ascertain the underlying reasons for self-harm & suicide in order to improve your connection with the student. • Provide guidelines for notifying and engaging parents. • Specify a suicide intervention team and delineate the role of each member. • Establish best practices for postvention plans in the aftermath of a suicide.
