Trauma Informed Treatment: What It Is and How to Do It in your Work Every Day with Patricia Wilcox

E-mail Print

Title: Trauma Informed Treatment: What It Is and How to Do It in your Work Every Day
Presenter: Patricia Wilcox, LICSW
Date: February 5, 2013
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Host: Joan Tabachnick
Technical Advisor: Anna Curtis

Slides Printout (PDF 7MB) | Slides PowerPoint (PPTX 7MB) | Download Webinar (WMV 55MB) | Play Webinar (GoToWebinar.com)

Webinar Description: Many agencies work hard to implement trauma informed care into their operation only to find that this approach is as difficult to sustain as it was to implement. Offering training and agreement among administrators is important, but how do we make sure that the day-to-day interactions in our program utilize the newest brain science to offer effective healing to our clients? During times of stress, employees can revert to a punitive approach which includes blaming, anger and retreat. Vicarious traumatization erodes hope and energy within the workforce. Staff turnover presents another challenge to continuing a trauma informed culture. This webinar will present specific strategies to evaluate current levels of trauma informed care, to improve and sustain treatment, and to maintain an energetic and caring staff. Areas of focus will include: individualized treatment approaches using brain-based competency analysis, changing relationship templates, supervision, increasing a culture of self awareness and mutual support, the role of leadership, and embedding attention to vicarious traumatization.

Title: A Relational Approach to the Treatment of Sexually Abusive Adolescents
Presenter: Phil Rich, Ed.D., MSW, LICSW
Date: January 8, 2013

Webinar Description: Despite anything technical we may teach children and adolescents with sexual behavior problems, such as thinking errors, behavioral cycles, and safe behavior and relapse prevention plans, treatment for sexually abusive or troubled sexual behavior is, perhaps above all, about relationships, social connection, and engagement in a healthy and safe community. In this more holistic model of rehabilitation, not only is treatment significantly about attachment and connection but treatment must itself be delivered in a way that is connective. Workbooks are often used as a central element in treatment with sexually troubled youth. This webinar will address the use of workbooks, not to simply teach ideas about sexually abusive behavior, but instead to increase the ability of troubled youths to think about and understand healthy and connected relationships to others, and thus work on their communication and relationship skills. Of central importance, in teaching skills that expand learning beyond the completion of workbook assignments, it is the role of the clinician to help bring workbook learning to life in each client, bringing these ideas into their awareness and developing skill set.

Webinar Description: During the past decade, mental health has increasingly focused on the brain and specifically the impact of trauma on the brain. The focus has primarily been on psychological trauma, i.e., physical, sexual, and emotional abuse as well as neglect. Over the past two years, however, there has been an increased awareness as to how head injury impacts the brain and brain function. Most notably, has been the focus on sports and head injury. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that 1.7 million people in the U.S. sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) annually and at least 3.17 million children and adults live with a permanent disability as a result of a TBI.
