Managing the Restorative/Periodontal Interface Course is organized by Kois Center, LLC and will be held from Jan 23 - 25, 2020 at Kois Center LLC, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. This CE Conference has been approved for a maximum of 27.5 Credits. Course Description : The Predictable management of soft and hard tissues is a critical component of successful restorative dentistry.

He provides scientifically based clinical guidelines which allow you to readily predict and manipulate the gingival margin position. Implementing the principles in this course will greatly enhance your efficiency and accuracy when faced with important tissue management challenges. You will gain confidence in both cosmetic and restorative outcomes. Acclaimed Clinical Instructor, Dr. Betsy Bakeman, will present a hands-on surgical instrumentation segment during this course.

The Basics of Sacroiliac Mobilization is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Jan 25 - 26, 2020 at Highline Physical Therapy, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. Course Description: The greatest strength of this class is its ability to simplify a seemingly complex region of the body and give the clinician a set of tools to use with confidence on Monday morning. This class is evidence based and demonstrates both theoretically and with specific case examples how the pelvis contributes to low back pain in patients. A unique aspect of this course is how it clarifies often ambiguous treatments with the pelvis; giving both new and seasoned clinicians a more comprehensive way of treating the pelvis. As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Independently discuss rationale for sacroiliac mobilization. • Independently and correctly perform a sacroiliac evaluation to determine dysfunction. • Correctly perform multiple movement dysfunction tests to ascertain the side of dysfunction • Correctly palpate the landmarks of the pelvis to ascertain the type of dysfunction present in the pelvic girdle • Demonstrate the ability to follow the correct order of treatment in the pelvis to best correct dysfunction • Demonstrate correct application of specific mobilizations Topics Covered: • Review of pertinent anatomy • Introduction and review of biomechanics of the sacroiliac joint and how it will be assessed • Palpation of bony structures—this will be reviewed throughout the course • Diagnostic testing—static and motion assessment • Treatment of pubic dysfunction • Treatment of iliosacral dysfunction—flares, rotations & slips • Treatment of sacroilial dysfunction—sacrum • Review of each assessment and treatment technique • Application to specific clinical situations
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment for Healing PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and More (Jan 28, 2020)
Jan 28, 2020 | CME 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Seattle, Washington
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 28, 2020 at Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Tacoma International Airport, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • 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 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). Join Jory Agate, LMHC, MDiv, MA, Certified IFS Therapist, for this transformational training day. Learn all that IFS therapy can do for you and your clients. Objectives: • Investigate Internal Family Systems (IFS) concepts, steps and techniques to broaden treatment intervention options. • Appraise how IFS brings a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders by translating common comorbidities into parts language. • Analyze the IFS view that client's symptoms and psychopathology are attempts to solve an emotional problem. • Inspect a clinical session to deepen one’s understanding of IFS treatment strategies. • Practice clinical interventions to enhance effectiveness in sessions. • Appraise the benefits of applying IFS to one’s current clinical practice.

Advanced Functional Occlusion: Complex Restorative Management Course is organized by Kois Center, LLC and will be held from Feb 06 - 08, 2020 at Kois Center LLC, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 27.50 CE Credits. Course Description : Understanding the biologic principles involved in developing a functional occlusion is vital to achieving predictable long-term restorative success. Traditionally, occlusion courses have centered on condylar position, muscle tension and gnathologic concepts such as canine guidance and mutual protection. The interpretations of these different schools of occlusion can be challenging to navigate. Dr. Kois brings clarity to the similarities and the differences between the various occlusal philosophies while expanding on the concepts introduced in 153 Functional Occlusion, including TMJ disorders and their management. He presents evidenced-based studies which redefine the options available for occlusal treatment. The new paradigms presented in 303 Advanced Functional Occlusion will empower you to treat your patient’s restorative needs predictably and successfully and enable you to assess TMJ health and know the boundaries of your treatment options. Course Objectives : • Obtain a greater understanding of when tooth position vs. muscle position vs. condylar position should be used to establish the occlusal starting point for a restorative case. • Learn how the horizontal and vertical components of occlusion can be combined with dentofacial parameters to optimize function and esthetics. • Learn multiple techniques to obtain centric relation as a restorative reference position. • Identify and categorize TMJ disorders into diagnostic subgroups and implement a treatment plan appropriate to the severity of the clinical findings. • Understand the importance of joint stability and the sequencing of occlusal therapy for patients with TMD. • Learn which lab records are required for cross mounting casts for complex cases and full-mouth rehabilitation. • Learn new techniques, technologies, and materials to stage and segment complex cases. • Learn the objectives of equilibration, and practice them through hands-on learning. Prerequisites : Required: 103 and 153 or 165 Exception: For those specialists who are eligible to become a Kois Recognized Specialist, course prerequisites are modified to require completion of only Course II prior to attendance. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
