Ten Best Anxiety Management Techniques


DATE(S):
July 16, 2021
TIME:
9:00 AM to 12:00PM
LOCATION:
LIVE Webinar


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
 This live webinar draws on the latest research for the neurobiological basis of anxiety to explain why psychotherapy is so effective. Techniques that are useful in all age groups to stop rumination, eliminate panic and prepare people to participate in social environments without distress are demonstrated. Among the 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques are methods that manage the physiological aspects of anxiety: stress, the dread and agitation of generalized anxiety, panic attacks, nervous system-based blushing, sweating and shaking. Apply tools such as “Contain Your Worry” and “Erase the Trace” (of rumination) to eliminate the distressing cognitive features of anxiety, such as rumination, catastrophic thinking, and cognitive errors. Learn to identify and correct for the typical issues of procrastination and perfectionism when caused by generalized anxiety disorder. Apply the neuroscience of memory reconsolidation as it affects and directs both desensitizing panic cues and the creation of effective social anxiety exposures

The Ethics of Cultural Competence: Who am I and Who are You?


DATE(S):
August 4, 2021
TIME:
9:00AM. to 12:00PM.
LOCATION:
LIVE Webinar


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
The issue of competency arises most keenly when practitioners are confronted with ethical dilemmas, which challenge us to prioritize values, aspects of the code of ethics and applicable regulations. How do we allocate limited resources? What do we do when the client’s religious beliefs prevent them from giving medical care to their child or result in discriminatory behavior? How do we respond when confronted with a client’s values, beliefs and decisions that are different from our own? How aware are we of what will help clients from diverse groups feel safe, welcome and respected? How do we deal with issues of language translation? How do we manage scarce resources and pressure to behave in ways we believe are out of integrity? How do we balance conflicting expectations from students, their families and the school system? Cultural competency is an ongoing learning process. Learn to effectively identify culturally related dilemmas and apply an accepted set of decision-making steps for successful resolution. This webinar can be applied toward the IDFPR ethics and cultural competency requirement for social workers and psychologists
