Trauma & Sexual Compulsivity/ Attachment Across Addiction (830am–12pm) robert weiss, Ph.D., lcsw the Lifespan eboni webb, Psy.D., hsp

Darryl S. Inaba, PharmD. Brain imaging and other more recent research tools continue to discover variances in neuro-cellular, neuro-chemical, and neuro-functioning that underlie a vulnerability to develop substance-related and other addictive disorders. The brain anomalies associated with addictive disorders provide an understanding of the differences between the wide variety of drugs and behavioural compulsions. They also help to explain why some are more likely than others to relapse after treatment for their compulsive drug use or behaviours. The rapidly expanding field of Addiction Medicine provides new insights on preventing, assessing and treatment of addictions and related disorders. It is also providing more evidenced-based resources to better manage those struggling with these major mental health disorders. This presentation will explore the evolving science of Addiction and Recovery.

Robert Weiss ph . d., lcsw

Many of the clients that we serve have such complex problems due to extensive trauma and attachment disturbances. These early wounds have informed their adult presentations resulting in mental illness and personality disorders. The poet William Wordsworth wrote in his poem, My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold (1802), “..the Child is father of the Man.” Future pioneering psychologists would be inspired by this passage as they came to understand that both function and dysfunction are born in childhood and guide us in our adult lives. In this course you will come to understand the impact of trauma on the developing mind and how attachment is formed or lost through traumatic events. You will learn how the brain is organized through healthy attachment and the critical elements of healthy attachment. We will examine the current neuroscience behind both trauma and attachment and the top evidence-based strategies to address key DSM-V disorder through the lens of trauma.

Author/Educator/Sexologist Rob Weiss Phd., LCSW will open this discussion with the recent World Health Organization (ICD-11) diagnosis of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (CSBD) and its relationship to what we have typically called sex and/or porn addiction. The various myths surrounding sexual compulsivity/ addiction (what it is and what it isn’t) will be clarified, as he reviews typical types of sexual acting-out behaviors and the related consequences that are most indicative of sexual compulsivity/addiction.

Prodependence

(1pm–4pm)

robert weiss, Ph.D., lcsw Prodependence is the first attachmentbased model for the treatment of addict’s partners and loved ones. The model moves beyond the trauma and deficit-based theories of codependency and co-addiction, allowing us to view this population with strength-based eyes and fresh ideas.

COUNSELLING FOCUSED CONFERENCE Day 2 Workshop #6

Childhood Trauma, Addiction & PTSD:

Professionals Need to Know

Treatment Strategies & Interventions

jennifer sweeton, Psy.D. Harm Reduction — which recognizes and builds on the fluidity of humans and their ability to change — is the opposite of the disease theory. And while significant cracks have begun to appear in the disease theory’s dominance in North America, remarkably, harm reduction thinking often accepts fundamental disease theory conceptions — primarily that addiction occurs simply as a result of exposure to opioids, is NOT impacted by social setting, and is irreversible. Dr. Peele deploys data, common sense, and the audience’s personal experience to show how wrong-headed — and dangerous — this disease theory residue is, while he presents an alternative way of thinking and treatment. Trauma theory is discussed in this regard. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: • To become aware of how the basic disease theory of addiction — exposure = addiction — is imbedded in cultural thinking. • To understand how this thinking underlies our modern addiction and drug death epidemic.

Day 3 Workshop #7

Risky Business:

Working with Compulsive and Self-Endangering Behaviours in Trauma Survivors

Sativa? Indica? The many combinations? What’s recreational? What’s medical? Methods of delivery? When is it a problem? What’s for sale at the dispensary, the clinic or on the street? What are the questions to ask clients? What are the risks and benefits for anxiety, depression, trauma & psychosis?… and a lot more. Understanding the new cannabis landscape will help you to successfully engage with clients; to know how to question and explore cannabis use. This workshop will help you into leading edge research and lots of information you never learned in school. Zach Walsh is a Canadian psychologist and a leader in the field of cannabis and mental health. Drawing from his own research, clinical experience and the latest empirical literature, he will discuss all you need to know about cannabis.

Day 3 Workshop #9

Trauma & the Struggle to Open Up:

Relational Strategies to Treat Challenging Trauma Clients

Understanding & Addressing Vicarious Traumatization

robert t. muller, Ph.D.

mary jo harwood, msw, lsw

This practical workshop, led by Dr. Robert T. Muller, a leading expert on trauma therapy and globally-acclaimed author of the psychotherapy bestseller: Trauma & the Avoidant Client–is aimed at building your understanding of the psychotherapeutic relationship with challenging clients, particularly trauma clients. All clients present with some degree of traumatic affect, making this workshop suitable for all practitioners. While many of us try to maintain a good therapeutic relationship, this can be difficult. Trauma clients struggle to trust the therapist; many minimize their own traumatic experiences, or become help-rejecting. Others rush into the work, seeking a “quick fix,” despite a long history of interpersonal trauma. Through the lens of attachment theory, using a relational, integrative approach, Dr. Muller follows the ups and downs of the therapy relationship with trauma survivors.

The work of Mental Health Professionals and Therapists, can often make the world look and feel different. It is not uncommon that the pain witnessed becomes internalized and alters one’s own psychological and physical wellbeing. It is not uncommon that intense and powerful images, sounds, smells and tactile experiences become intrusive in everyday life. The impact on individuals as well as organizations can be barriers for successful delivery of services. Recognizing this and being good stewards of one’s trauma exposure response, as well as mitigating the collective impact on organizations, provides opportunities for enhanced services and sustainable staffing. Vicarious trauma awareness opens doors to resilience. Vicarious trauma awareness provides another tool to assist and heal those we attempt to support and serve.

john briere, Ph.D. Survivors of trauma and early attachment disturbance are at elevated risk of a variety compulsive and self-endangering behaviours, ranging from suicidality and self-injury to substance abuse, indiscriminate sexual activities, and binge eating. Many of these difficulties are seen as symptoms of a personality disorder, behavioural addiction, or impulse control disorder. However, emerging research indicates that they are more accurately understood as coping/homeostatic responses to triggered childhood memories and inadequate emotional regulation capacities. Calling on his upcoming book Triggered: An Integrated Approach to Trauma, Attachment Disturbance, and Risky Behaviour (Guilford), John Briere presents an innovative, integrated approach to selfendangering behaviour, the compensatory avoidance model.

Over the past couple of decades there has been an exciting merging of psychotherapy and neuroscience research that is revolutionizing clinical practice. Cognitive, affective, and social neuroscience research provides profound insight into the brain changes humans are capable of producing, as well as how childhood trauma (such as ACEs), and trauma more broadly, may negatively impact the brain. We are beginning to learn, through neuroscience research, how the brain can change with the practice of psychotherapeutic techniques that target and improve the functioning of specific brain structures. This seminar, led by clinical expert Dr. Jennifer Sweeton, shares the most up-to-date research discoveries on the neuroscience of childhood trauma, addiction, and PTSD, and teaches highly effective psychotherapy techniques clinicians can begin using tomorrow to help clients recover.

Raising Resilient Children & Teens in a Stress-Filled World

The Tenacious Mindset: Understanding & Enhancing Resiliency in Fragile Learners

robert brooks, Ph.D.

sam goldstein, ph.d.

The level of stress among children and teens seems to be constantly increasing. The presence of social media has intensified problems related to one’s sense of popularity and acceptance by peers. Youngsters at an earlier age are worried about their futures. Reports indicate that today’s teens are less able to deal with setbacks and obstacles.

Children come into this world with instinctual optimism and intrinsic motivation. In order to master years of developmental and educational milestones, they must believe that if they begin a task or undertake a challenge, they can succeed and that success is the best reinforcement for continued effort. Dr. Goldstein will provide an overview of the tenacious mindset.

Proven Strategies for Teaching Social & Emotional Learning Skills rebecca moyes, m.ed.

Continuation of morning keynote george mccloskey, Ph.D.

steven T. olivas, Ph.D., hsp

In today’s schools, many educators recognize that students struggle with both social skills deficits and self-regulation skills. Many learners also exhibit mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and various behavioural disorders. Due to the emphasis on rigor in academic instruction, little, if any time, is currently devoted to teaching social/emotional replacement skills in school settings.

Ways to discuss executive functions with children, parents and other school staff will be offered as well as ways to help motivate children and adolescents to ensure their full participation in efforts to help them. Special emphasis will be placed on how to orient students to intervention efforts and help them move from being externally controlled to internally self-regulated.

This workshop will guide you through focused, clear and proven approaches to working with children and youth. Every professional who seeks to fill their toolbox with tested methods will leave this seminar with a wealth of fresh ideas and rejuvenated spirits.

How to Treat Depression A CBT-Based Perspective

2 Day Intensive: DBT Skills Training

randy paterson, Ph.D., r.psych.

sheri van dijk, msw, rsw

Major Depression. It’s one of the most difficult challenges a person can confront – and one of the most common presentations in clinical settings. It has multiple risk factors, diverse presentations, and varying levels of severity. No two clients are the same. The evidence based treatment literature is a jungle of findings, recommendations, and protocols. Faced with a new client, do you struggle through a one-size-fits-none protocol, or do you abandon the research base and strike out on your own? Perhaps the best answer is “neither.” Instead, you could view treatment as a set of evidence-based components selected based on the particulars of your client’s situation. Doing so, you can stay true to the need for research support for your treatment while truly building “a new therapy for every client.” This workshop will show you how. Along the way you’ll receive over 40 pdf forms, tools, and information sheets to use with your clients.

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a treatment originally designed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD). In recent years it has been increasingly used to treat many other disorders because of its usefulness in treating clients unable to manage emotions.

We’ll look at the assessment process and see how assessment and diagnosis can be construed as opposites rather than synonyms. We’ll review risk factors – and how to improve the efficiency of your assessment using the Depression Map Questionnaire, which helps to identify areas for further inquiry. We’ll consider how to get the client on board with treatment, despite the discouragement and lack of motivation such clients generally exhibit. And we’ll examine two models of depression you can use to help your client understand both the problem and the treatment.

Agenda • Risk factors for depression and their link to treatment components • Normalizing rather than pathologizing as an assessment strategy • Use of the Depression Map Questionnaire as an aid to assessment • The floating diamond and depression map models of depression • Getting the client on board with life change

Learning Objectives • Be able to present two related models for depression symptoms, causes, and treatment. • Be able to structure behavioural activation for maximum effect. • Be able to identify lifestyle factors for targeted treatment focus. Randy Paterson, Ph.D., R.Psych., is a psychologist and the founding director of Changeways Clinic, a private psychotherapy service in Vancouver, BC. He is the author of How to be Miserable: 40 Strategies You Already Use, The Assertiveness Workbook, Your Depression Map, and Private Practice Made Simple.

In addition, Sheri will introduce DBT strategies to help foster the therapeutic relationship, maximize therapeutic gains, and reduce the likelihood of therapist burnout.

Agenda • The DBT Model, Research, Adapting DBT, DBT for Other Diagnoses Biosocial Theory of BPD • Dialectics, Validation & Other Dialectical Strategies • Behavior Theory & Contingency Management • Core Mindfulness Skills • Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills

Learning Objectives • How to teach your clients the four sets of DBT skills to help them get through crisis situations without making the situation worse; to manage their emotions more effectively; and to develop and maintain healthier relationships • How to apply DBT skills to a range of psychiatric illnesses and other problems of daily living

• Have an organizing principle for your assessment.

12 CEUS

Through lecture and experiential exercises, you will explore the four modules of DBT skills (Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness) and learn how to teach these skills to your clients. You will learn how to format DBT sessions to provide the structure your dysregulated clients need.

• Emotion Regulation Skills

• The nature and epidemiology of depression: A brief review

DATE & LOCATION

Following an introduction to DBT theory and how this treatment differs from traditional cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Sheri Van Dijk will discuss how DBT can be applied to working with clients facing a broad range of conditions such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, in which emotion dysregulation plays a key role.

Understanding & Addressing Vicarious Traumatization

Practical Strategies to Help Clients with Panic, Generalized Anxiety, Phobias & OCD

mary jo harwood, msw, lsw, dnccm The work of Mental Health Professionals and Therapists, can often make the world look and feel different. It is not uncommon that the pain witnessed becomes internalized and alters one’s own psychological and physical wellbeing. It is not uncommon that intense and powerful images, sounds, smells and tactile experiences become intrusive in everyday life. The impact on individuals as well as organizations can be barriers for successful delivery of services. Recognizing this and being good stewards of one’s trauma exposure response, as well as mitigating the collective impact on organizations, provides opportunities for enhanced services and sustainable staffing. Vicarious trauma awareness opens doors to resilience. Vicarious trauma awareness provides another tool to assist and heal those we attempt to support and serve.

Trauma & Attachment Across the Lifespan Tools & Strategies to Address Complex Clients EBONI WEBB, psy.d., hsp Many of the clients that we serve have such complex problems due to extensive trauma and attachment disturbances. These early wounds have informed their adult presentations resulting in mental illness and personality disorders. The poet William Wordsworth wrote in his poem, My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold (1802), “..the Child is father of the Man.” Future pioneering psychologists would be inspired by this passage as they came to understand that both function and dysfunction are born in childhood and guide us in our adult lives. In this course you will come to understand the impact of trauma on the developing mind and how attachment is formed or lost through traumatic events. You will learn how the brain is organized through healthy attachment and the critical elements of healthy attachment. We will examine the current neuroscience behind both trauma and attachment and the top evidence-based strategies to address key DSM-V disorder through the lens of trauma.

Agenda

Learning Objectives

• Neurobiological Building Blocks

• Learn the impact of trauma on the developing mind.

• Neurotransmitters of connection • Defining trauma and attachment

• Identify the key features of healthy attachment and its impact neurologically.

• Developmental vs. attachment trauma

• Identify the key defensive survival strategies in trauma.

• Trauma and Brain Development

• Learn how relational character strategies are formed that can be effective adaptations to relationship disturbances.

• Biopsychosocial model & Biphasic arousal model • Common survival resources • Relational Character Strategies and the DSM-V • Critical Interventions • Proximity maintenance: Restructuring boundaries

• Develop strategies to address key disorders across the lifespan that are influenced by trauma and attachment disturbances (ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, etc.)

EBONI WEBB, psy.d., hsp Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a highly effective form of treatment for clients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). However, many of these individuals have rarely developed life skills to build a proactive and responsive life versus a defensive and reactive one. Dr. Eboni Webb will introduce a holistic approach to treatment and will expand on key concepts including skills acquisition, daily practice, and generalization. These skills are critical for our clients to develop an effective interdependent adult life. Dr. Webb will provide a brief discussion of DBT and its relationship to the Biosocial model, the neurological impact of trauma on the developing brain and how to address specific diagnoses via the skills. She will discuss the importance of integrating DBT skills at the earliest point of treatment and utilizing skills as a foundation for life.

4 Day Intensive: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & TEAM Techniques

3 Day Intensive Training in EMDR Assessing, Resourcing & Treatment Techniques for Trauma & Anxiety

david burns, m.D.

Jennifer sweeton, Psy.D., m.s., m.a.

Join Dr. David Burns this summer in Edmonton, AB, for his fabulous four-day intensive on the treatment of depression and all of the anxiety disorders with advanced CBT and TEAM Therapy techniques. This intensive training offers unique and exciting learning opportunities.

EMDR is a evidence-based intervention that has gained popularity over the past couple of decades, so much so that some clients specifically request it! Part of EMDR’s allure is that research has shown it to quickly and consistently help clients recover from trauma and anxiety. However, mastering EMDR can be daunting, and there is often confusion about how to integrate EMDR, and other memory reconsolidation tools, into therapy work with clients.

Here’s why: The group size will be strictly limited, providing you with an intimate and interactive learning environment. After Dr. Burns describes and illustrates a technique, such as the Interpersonal Downward Arrow, Five Secrets of Effective Communication, Paradoxical Agenda Setting, Hidden Emotion, Externalization of Voices, or Acceptance Paradox, you will have the opportunity to break off into dyads and triads to practice the technique with colleagues and receive immediate and helpful feedback on how you did. You will have chances to work on your own personal and professional issues as part of the learning process if you choose to do so. As therapists working in the trenches, most of us feel anxious, frustrated, ashamed, burned out, inadequate or demoralized from time to time. This personal “patient” experience will boost your morale and make these techniques jump to life for you on a much deeper level. You will learn how to transform your own angst into joy, and you will become a more sensitive and effective clinician as well. In the past nine years, over 2000 therapists have attended Dr. Burns’ four-day intensives in Canada. Based on the many phenomenal participant testimonials we’ve received, I think it is safe to say that this promises be one of the most vibrant and inspirational training experiences of your career.

What is TEAM-CBT?

• A = Agenda Setting: Numerous tools to create a collaborative agenda with each patient and address motivation/reduce resistance to change before proceeding to CBT methods • M = Methods: 50+ cognitive and behavioural methods for different types of symptoms

David Burns, M.D., is Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He also has served as Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Medicine School and Acting Chief of Psychiatry at the Presbyterian University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Registration FEES

Additionally, this workshop will help you anticipate and overcome common treatment obstacles, modify EMDR techniques as needed, and understand when and with whom EMDR is likely to be beneficial. For those clients that may resonate with other trauma-relieving strategies, the workshop will also discuss EFT, brainspotting, and neuromodulation as alternative memory reconsolidation approaches.

• EMDR as Applied Neuroplasticity

• T = Testing: Self-report measurement of symptoms and the therapeutic alliance at every session with every patient

DATE & LOCATION

At this 3-Day workshop, you’ll learn and practice the EMDR skills and techniques you need to move clients from surviving to thriving, without retraumatization. After this seminar you’ll feel confident helping clients manage overwhelming emotions, and will be able to guide them as they process and reconsolidate traumatic memories and sensations, conquer their fears, and utilize resources that help them feel more in control of their lives.

Working with Oppositional, Defiant, & Anger Issues with Children & Adolescents

25 Proven & Effective Self-Regulation Strategies & Interventions with Children & Adolescents

JAY BERK, Ph.D.

Kathy Morris, m.ed. Children diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) can present a monumental challenge to therapists, teachers, parents and siblings. ODD and other conduct problems are the single greatest reasons for referrals to outpatient and inpatient mental health settings for children, accounting for at least half of all referrals. Complicating the success of therapeutic interventions is the high rate of comorbidity with anxiety and depressive disorders or ADHD. Current research also correlates a variety of cognitive skill deficits including executive function, emotional regulation, language processing, and social processing. These complicating comorbidities and correlations mean that ODD often requires multidisciplinary assessment and components of mental health care, case management, and educational intervention for students and clients to improve. This dynamic two day workshop will address a full range of behavioural disturbances, from mild to severe, in order to identify the therapeutic techniques that have proven effective. Participants will review and discuss strategies which can be immediately applied across a variety of settings including home, community, social groups, classrooms, or therapeutic. Participants will examine the intersection of ODD with a variety of issues such as trauma, ADD, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, and depression and discuss how these affect and alter treatment decisions. Participants will leave this workshop with a much improved diagnostic and treatment approach to ODD and other behavioural disorders.

Benefits to Attending • Beyond behaviour charts – Truly intervene with difficult behaviours • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder & important DSM-5 updates • The #1 reason families inadvertently fuel defiant behaviours • How educators and clinicians may be fuelling exactly what they are trying to stop • Why child/adolescent “terrorist behaviours” work

Learning Objectives

Children and adolescents who struggle with self-regulation often look like those who just aren’t paying attention, have difficulty with emotional control, blurting out answers, have difficulty making transitions and/or purposely not controlling themselves. They may be unaware of the connections of their behaviour and the consequences of the behaviour. If you don’t have self-regulation, you may act out, get placed in timeout, sent to the principal’s office, then miss important learning time. A downward spiral occurs as the student gets more upset and continues to act out when given punitive consequences. Executive functioning changes radically over the first few years, continues to improve quickly throughout adolescent years and, finally, during early adulthood years, the frontal lobes and prefrontal lobes are activated and connected to other regions of the brain. Executive function skills can be trained. It’s just like going to the gym. The more one practices these strategies for metacognition and selfregulation, the neural connections will be strengthened. The beginnings of executive function and self-regulation skills appear in the neurotypical brain around 4 years of age. However, what happens when the prefrontal lobe and frontal cortex are compromised due to faulty brain wiring and sensory traffic jams, such as seen in autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, anxiety disorders, mood disturbances, behaviour disorders, posttraumatic disorders, poverty, attachment disorders? This two-day seminar will address practical strategies that meet the needs of those children and adolescents who are impacted by these differences in their brain maturation. However, the participant will realize that these strategies apply to ALL students! The purpose is to provide practical tools for those clinicians, educators, therapists or parents who are directly involved in working with children and adolescents. This seminar is designed for those who are “working in the trenches.”

• Identify oppositional behaviour and causes

Agenda

• Implement strategies with the child/adolescent who refuses to talk

The challenge for educators and clinicians is to recognize anxiety in children and help them cope. Dr. Christine Dargon will teach you how and why anxiety develops in children and adolescents. She will present practical treatment strategies that can be applied immediately. The seven key anxiety disorders along with case examples to be addressed include: Separation Anxiety Disorder • Overanxious Disorder • Social Anxiety Disorder • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Panic Disorder • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder • Phobias Other co-occurring disorders (e.g. behaviour problems, medical conditions, depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, selective mutism) will also be discussed. Emphasis will be on creative interventions involving insightoriented, cognitive-behavioural, biological, mindfulness, expressive arts and family systems approaches.

Making Sense of Aggression Gordon Neufeld, ph.d. One of the foremost interpreters of the developmental approach tackles one of the oldest and most perplexing of human problems, exposing its deep developmental roots and revealing why conventional approaches to the problem are so ineffective. There are many indications that this problem is escalating among our children and youth. What tends to grab our attention is the more violating acts of aggression but what is truly alarming is the ground swell of attacking energy within and between our kids that erupts in their interaction, music, language, play, games and fantasies. This attacking energy is also fueling an alarming increase in suicide and suicidal ideation among children. Dr. Neufeld provides a way of understanding that not only explains what is happening around us but also provides insight into the individuals – both children and adults – who present with these problems. His approach is refreshingly sensible, historically accountable, and congruent with today’s science of the brain. His conceptual model has clear implications for practice and treatment and is applicable in any arena: home, school or in treatment.

Agenda

Learning Objectives

• Frustration, Attachment & Aggression --a working definition of aggression --the many faces of aggression, including suicide

• Uncover the psychological roots of the aggression problem

• Tears, Temper and Attack --aggression as problem of adaptation --the displacement effect in aggression

• Provide a working model of aggression for purposes of assessment and intervention

• Handling and Reducing Incidents & Violence --why conventional approaches backfires with aggression • Facilitating Alternate Outcomes to Aggression --how to shift the focus from aggression to frustration

• Recognize aggression in its many forms

• Appreciate the roots of the gender differences in aggression • Learn to `read` aggression effectively • Reveal the role of the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex in aggression

Gordon Neufeld, Ph.D., is a Vancouverbased developmental psychologist with over 45 years of experience with children and youth and those responsible for them. A foremost authority on child development, Dr. Neufeld is an international speaker, a bestselling author (Hold On To Your Kids) and a leading interpreter of the developmental paradigm. Dr. Neufeld has a widespread reputation for making sense of complex problems and for opening doors for change.

Gordon Neufeld, ph.d. Once we understand how bullies are made, our attempts to unmake them can be truly effective and longlasting. Most prevailing approaches to this problem assume that bullying is either learned behaviour or the result of failure to acquire social skills. In contrast, Dr. Neufeld dissects the bully syndrome to reveal its deep instinctive roots in the dynamics of attachment and vulnerability. The Bully Enigma: Most attempts to change bullies, or even to teach them a lesson, are not only futile but counterproductive. The reason for this is that most interventions are blind, devoid of an understanding of what makes a bully in the first place. Part of the problem is that the bully is an enigma. There are at least three reasons for this. First of all, very few bullies would identify themselves as such or confess to the act. Secondly, bullies lack self-reflection and so cannot tell us about themselves. Thirdly, the violating nature of the bully’s behaviour distracts from the salient issues and underlying dynamics. The symptoms are social but the dysfunction is psychological. The arena of violation is in children`s relating to each other but the genesis of the problem is in relationship to adults. The demeanor is one of toughness yet the sensitivity to slight is acute. The behaviour is pushy and demanding yet the personality is highly dependent and immature. Unless we can shed some light into the internal workings of the bully, our interventions will inevitably be off base.

2 Day Skills Training Intensive: Strengthening Executive Skills in Children & Adolescents

Over 30 Proven & Effective Brief Interventions for Children & Adolescents with Emotional & Behavioural Problems

Peg Dawson, ed.D. Executive skills are sometimes called “the hidden curriculum.” They are skills such as task initiation, sustained attention, working memory, planning, organization, and goal-directed persistence that are absolutely critical to school success, yet curriculum standards seldom if ever explicitly reference these skills. Neuroscientists now tell us that these skills take a minimum of 25 years to reach full maturation, and the course of that development is influenced by experience and exposure, by modelling, practice, and direct instruction. This workshop will provide participants with a framework for understanding these key skills, how they develop in diverse populations, and how to support executive skills by embedding them into classroom routines and lessons and by tailoring interventions to meet the needs of individual students and classrooms.

Agenda • Overview of Executive Skills

Steven Olivas, Ph.D., hsp Over 30 Proven and Effective Brief Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioural Problems will guide you through focused, clear and proven approaches to working with children and youth. Every professional who seeks to fill their toolbox with tested methods will leave this seminar with a wealth of fresh ideas and rejuvenated spirits. With nearly 30 years of clinical experience and a background in improvisational comedy, Dr. Steve is a strong proponent of “Edu-tainment”. He uses wit and humour to enhance your learning experience, improving the retention and utilization of the skills covered. You will leave this workshop with new strategies for success and techniques to revitalize your interactions with students.

• Executive Skill Development Across the Lifespan

Learning Objectives

• Assessment of Executive Skills

• Utilize effective techniques for the treatment of behaviour disorders in children

• Modifying the Environment to Support Students with Weak Executive Skills • Teaching Executive Skills by Embedding Them in Daily Routines • Embedding Executive Skills into Classroom Content-Area Lessons • Designing Student-Centered Interventions to Address Specific Contexts Impacted by Weak Executive Skills • Using Incentives to Encourage Practice • Classroom or Small Group Curricula for Teaching Executive Skills • Coaching

Learning Objectives • Describe the brain processes involved in executive skill development both in typically developing children and those with executive dysfunction (such as ADHD). • Identify how executive skills impact school performance and daily living.

• Design interventions for improving executive skills in students • Features of a coaching method geared to improving school performance through supporting executive skill development. Peg Dawson, ED.D. In over 40 years of clinical practice, Dr. Peg Dawson has worked with thousands of children who struggle at home and in school. At the center of their struggles are often weak executive skills. Along with her colleague, Dr. Richard Guare, she has written numerous books on this topic.
