Course Descriptions:

Children of Trauma

Wednesday, Nov. 12, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Presenter: William Steele

This online course is a recorded live presentation that “sets the foundation” for the use of the intervention strategies participants will practice in San Antonio. Learn how to become a “witness” to how grieving or traumatized children now experience life and how they now see themselves, others and the world around them as a result of all they have been exposed to. This helps us, as practitioners, appreciate the intensity of their experiences, their neurological impairment and their intervention needs in school, at home or in clinical settings. Segments demonstrating the intervention process will prepare participants for the Structured Sensory Interventions full-day of practice. Even if you are not applying for certification the evidence-based strategies practiced will make more sense and the experience more valuable within the context of the foundation presented in the Children of Trauma online course.

Structured Sensory Interventions

Thursday, Nov. 13, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Presenter: William Steele

We highly recommend that you take the Children of Trauma course before attending this course.This is a practice day that builds on the Children of Trauma course. Participants will be engaged in the evidence-based, grief and trauma psycho-educational intervention processes used in schools and community settings across the country. Cases - including the mother of a 7-year-old who died of cancer at home; a 12-year-old exposed to repeated domestic violence; a 15-year-old, raped multiple times at a drug house; and a spouse whose husband was tortured and killed - will be presented along with the remarkable evidence-based reduction of their PTSD and other mental health and cognitive-related reactions. Participants in schools or agency settings will feel comfortable using any of TLC’s structured manualized psycho-educational trauma intervention programs and tools at the end of this practice-directed training.

Advanced Structured Sensory Interventions

Friday, Nov. 14, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Presenter: Caelan Kuban

This training will show participants how to implement TLC’s "SITCAP-Art,"
"I Feel Better Now!," and "Trauma Intervention Program" into practice. Case examples
will take participants through an entire program, session by session, with
examples on how to facilitate each activity including other supplemental activities.
Other topics that will be discussed include facilitating a sense of safety,
diminishing the terror that exposed individuals experience, where to begin
when there have been multiple traumas, parent components and cognitive reframing.
Participants will also engage in several structured sensory activities specific
to themes that address trauma. Activities explored are designed for early childhood,
school-aged and adolescent-aged youth.
