This 8 hour course will provide a brief overview of current resources in Trauma-Informed Care and the effects of early trauma while offering many new proven methods to help you with your treatment.
Explore new views for many "old" behaviors, new tools for your behavior management toolbox, self-calming techniques, and reasons for meltdowns and ways to decrease them. You'll understand the role fear responses play and how to "see" the neurochemistry at work. Afterwards, you'll have the ability to prevent many meltdowns and truly support the families you serve.
Learn how to use the "Ideal Method" from TBRI, "Flip your lid" from Dr. Siegel, "Playful Interaction" and Holistic behavior logs. Also, using a new lens to look for "problem" behaviors like; "automatic no", eye contact avoidance, "shutdown", learn new strategies for helping children to rise above them.
Apply highly successful tenets of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and the importance of attachment, neurochemical/neurobiological view at behavior, and practical tools to use with children and teens who are struggling behaviorally. Also, look at the range of deficits that are typically present in "kids from hard places" and how to help them therapeutically.
