September 14, 15 and 16: Essential Neuroscience for the 21st Century Clinician Series

This conference, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. September 14, 15 and 16, will advance the knowledge base of each attendee concerning some of the most important key scientists and clinicians advancing our understandings in this area of practice.

Learn how to apply their key concepts in an easy to follow, practical way to improve client outcomes. While each day will provide a self-contained cohesive and complete learning experience, knowledge from each day will accumulate to provide a more complete picture of how to approach 21st Century practice more effectively through the use of neuroscience-based knowledge.

To improve application of learning, attendees will examine and discuss numerous clinical scenarios.

September 16: Bullying: Prevention, Intervention, and Postvention Strategies

The impact of bullying behavior on today’s youth can be quite devastating. Anxiety, depression, and even suicidal ideation and behaviors may be a result of such victimization. To complicate this pressing issue even further, young people have become quite adept at using social media to ostracize, shame, and intimidate peers.

In this presentation, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. September 16, participants will explore the topic of bullying systemically (i.e., school climate and culture), as well as clinically (i.e., therapeutic process) and learn more about the dynamics associated with bullying, the value of allies and supports, and prevention, intervention, and postvention strategies associated with bullying.
