Discover effective CBT tools to connect with traumatized adolescents
Empower adolescents to adopt effective coping skills
Hitting a sibling, yelling at parents, acting out in class, tuning-out, shouting, shoving, rebelling… all behaviors in a traumatized child or youth that can mask as ADHD, ODD or other clinical issues.
Recognizing and correctly assessing a traumatized child is the first step. In this seminar, you’ll learn:
What assessment tools are available
How to best use them
When you are required (by law) to report the case, and the loss of trust with the child
From that foundation, learn trauma-informed CBT techniques that give children and adolescents tools to:
Regulate their behavior
Moderate the anxiety
Develop coping skills
Rebuild relationships so that they can feel safe and secure
