  • Developmental Conceptualization of Symptoms and Diagnoses of Children and Youth ()

    Wed, Jan 22, 2020 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PSThea
    Webinar

    Parents, teachers, and social care, health, and other professionals often have little appreciation for the normative developmental needs of children and young people, and how these conflict with social expectations and demands. Reviewing the bio-psycho-social preoccupations and challenges commonly associated with specific age ranges and juxtaposing these with the ages at which behavioral and emotional symptoms and diagnoses first or commonly are noted can sharpen and shift perspectives and approaches. A developmental model and alternative case conceptualizations of diagnoses of children and youth will be presented by Dr. Karen John, psychologist, is an independent researcher, training consultant, Adlerian psychotherapist, and a clinical and leadership supervisor and mentor.

    • The brain science around what trauma, toxic stress and insecure attachment do to growing brains.

 

    • How to lead a classroom to benefit all students – including those exposed to trauma.

 

    • How to teach youth why their brain sometimes “won’t cooperate” and how they can learn to self-regulate.

 

    • How to use strengths-based plans to foster learning for all youth exposed to trauma.

 

    • How all of us can be a buffer against toxic stress for the youth in our communities.
