Sensory & Somatic Interventions for Regulation
Could Sensory Integration issues explain some of your child’s dysregulated behaviors? Learn about the body’s sensory system, roots of sensory dysfunction and how your child’s daily life may be impacted by SI issues.
How to Talk to Your Child About Suicide
Talking about suicide is hard, and it’s even harder to think about having to do this with your own child. A therapist and a parent will discuss why some children may be more at risk to attempt suicide than others, practical tips for how to plan your conversation, and how to build in supports for your child.
Interventions Beyond the Office
Have you ever attended a training or read a book about trauma and thought, “all that information is great, but now what?! What am I supposed to DO?” That’s what this workshop is all about!
Join Allison Cooke Douglas in a discussion of why old standbys like timeout, spanking and lectures don't work and aren’t appropriate for our children, and explore how parents can shift to mindful, connected discipline techniques for tough behaviors.
De-escalation Tools & Techniques
After understanding how the brain functions during a crisis, we will learn a variety of support techniques along with strategies and phrases to reduce power struggles. You will learn to “say this….not that” to let children know you are an ally and not another obstacle in an already challenging situation.
