    Approved by NASW, NH Chapter, for 5.5 Cat. 1 CE Credits, Auth. #2740 An emergent body of research shows that coaching is more powerful in addressing symptoms of ADHD than other forms of support such as psychotherapy. Coaches are specifically trained to help children with ADHD learn to manage time, break down daunting tasks into manageable steps, keep themselves organized, think proactively, use mindfulness techniques, and learn to check their thinking/acting at intervals. This workshop will define the difference and delineate the effective techniques unique to coaching children and teens with ADHD. The content of the coaching plan is contrasted and merged with the process of coaching throughout the workshop. This is an experiential workshop where you will work with one another to learn and practice ADHD coaching strategies. (This is part of the Coaching Children and Teens with ADHD Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)

    Approved by NASW, NH Chapter, for 5.5 Cat. 1 CE Credits, Auth. # 2656 As much as those in the helping profession would prefer otherwise, individuals tend to ask for help with their problems only when they have reached crisis proportions. Learn the theories and skills needed to manage a crisis to a successful conclusion, taking advantage of the opportunities for change and growth that also occur. You will review specific types of emergencies and their unique characteristics including: lethality, PTSD, sexual assault, personal loss, domestic violence and vicarious traumatization. Information and techniques will be introduced through PowerPoint, discussion, and role-plays. New as well as experienced professionals will benefit.

    New Workshop! Submitted to NASW, NH Chapter, for CE Credits Human beings are born with biological and psychological systems that can lead to drug and alcohol problems. Drug and alcohol problems do not happen right away: addiction is a process. Teens use drugs in a non-problem way BEFORE they have substance abuse problems. The individualized cycle develops for each person according to their family, social and school environments. As well, each person goes through a different cycle for each substance he/she experiments with: each person has a unique relationship with each drug. This seminar will elaborate and emphasize the role of coaching children and teens with alcohol and drug problems. Theories of addiction will be described and critiqued, including the Gateway model, the Disease model and the Biopsychosocial model. Brain change due to alcohol and drug problems will also be reviewed. You will also discuss classes of drugs likely to be abused including: depressants, hallucinogens, stimulants and opiates. Medicine currently used to treat alcohol and drug addiction will be explained. There are numerous treatment programs to help prevent alcohol and drug abuse in children and teens and many methods of treatment once the teen has moved down the road toward addiction. These will also be discussed.

    This program will teach basic concepts of Trauma-Informed Care- an increasingly important evidenced-based practice for service providers and their organizations.  The workshop will offer clear definitions of types of trauma and stress with a specific focus on the impact of toxic stress on a developing brain.  Understanding the mechanism by which adversity in childhood impacts the adoption of high-risk behaviors and subsequent health outcomes can give us important insight into some of the major public health crises of our time, including obesity and addiction.  Trauma-Informed Care offers a framework from which to understand challenging behaviors and resistance to treatment at both an organizational and face-to-face level.  In addition, using a Trauma-Informed framework can guide specific day to day interactions with clients to become more collaborative, responsive, and ultimately effective.
