This is the live online webinar delivery format of this course. It is also available live in-person. They will be held simultaneously.
This training will focus on providing therapists of all backgrounds and settings with a set of valuable and immediately practical tools/strategies for resourcing in session. Resources taken from working in many settings and across the full age span of mental health clients will be presented. Participants will be given opportunities to witness the use of these tools through video clips, live demonstrations, and through experiential practice. Each tool/strategy presented will be accompanied with material on the science behind its effectiveness, any research done or emerging, and where participants can acquire more information.
An introduction to the importance of emotion regulation and activation state will be given, primarily relying on Polyvagal Theory as a basis for common vocabulary and understanding. This will review concepts such as the Window of Tolerance and Polyvagal Ladder, some of the consequences of hyper and hypo arousal for counseling outcomes, as well as cautions and insights regarding dissociation.
This training provides an opportunity for staff and clinicians working with children, adolescents and young adults to increase their confidence in providing psycho-education to clients about the science of felt safety, a variety of tools and strategies to better meet individual client preferences, learning style and comfort levels for resourcing, and how to effectively adapt these tools/strategies for a variety of settings.
Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, addiction professionals, case managers, and other interested individuals.
