If you work with children & adolescents, this course is for you!
In this comprehensive course, you'll learn from one of the pioneers in the field of neurobiology about the developing mind of children. Join Dr. Siegel as he explores how to understand children and adolescents, respond more effectively to difficult situations, and build a foundation for social, emotional and mental health.
Here's everything that's included in this innovative and powerful course:
Explore the changing child brain and learn creative strategies to treat anxiety, affective disorders, disruptive behavior disorder and executive functioning.
- Hear the latest scientific research, with a special emphasis on neuroplasticity and the changing brain
- Learn practical treatment strategies through case example demonstrations
- Master the 12 Whole-Brain strategies to help kids move from reactivity to resilience
Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. Explore how brain development affects teenage behavior and relationships.
- Discover the essence of the adolescent brain and how science dispels popular myths
- Understand the clinical implications of the four pillars of adolescence and how these pillars are essential characteristics for both the individual development and for the health of our species
- Learn how to work with adolescents as individuals, as well as adolescence as an age group, for more effective treatment results
Learn how you can use play for the clinical evaluation of a child or adolescent, because how a person plays reveals ways in which mental well-being may be present or impaired.
- Understand the role of play in the development of mental well-being
- View a demonstration of using play activities for successful treatment of PTSD, OCD, anxiety disorders and depression
- Discover how easy it is to incorporate play techniques and other creative approaches such as rhythmic movement, non-verbal alignment, improvisation and musical vocalizations into your practice
In this presentation, Dr. Siegel will offer insights into hyper-rational thinking, impulsivity, changes in the dopamine drive for reward, and increases in the emotional reactivity of the brain to illuminate many of the potential risk factors during these transformative years of life. Rather than seeing adolescence as a period of immaturity or dysfunction, this view suggests that the essence of adolescence — the emotional spark, social engagement, novelty-seeking, and creative explorations — can best be harnessed by supporting these important aspects of our human development.
