Creating Responsive Classrooms! A webinar for helping kids at school.

January 11, 2019

Ah yes, schools.  I once heard them described as “the final frontier” when it comes to shifting to a trauma & regulation based model of supporting kids- especially those with a history of complex trauma and toxic stress.  And that makes perfect sense!  Overworked, underfunded, undertrained in trauma and the REAL origins of behaviors.  Lots of kids, not a lot of adults, not a lot of options.

Lisa Allen is an in-the-trenches educator with over 30 years of experience and she has agreed to join me for my next guest webinar.  Lisa has supported her school district in the suburbs of Chicago in shifting to a trauma-informed lens and helped to create Responsive Learning Environments.  Where kids can actually LEARN!!!

“Creating Responsive Learning Environment at School & Home” will air Wednesday the 16th at 1pm eastern, 12pm central, 11am mountain, 10am pacific.  This might be a great time for you- you’re at work, or the kids are at school…but I know this also might be a TERRIBLE time for you!  That’s why all my webinars are ALWAYS offered live and by recording.  For $14, you can attend live- or NOT- and receive lifetime and unlimited access to the recording.

If you work with kids in a setting where they are expected to learn anything- or you are looking for tools to SUPPORT or ADVOCATE for your kid in their school/learning environment, this is for you!

Y’all are going to LOVE Lisa.  We hit it off immediately when she contacted me last year about bringing trauma-informed training to her entire district.  Lisa was able to take my non-educator information about trauma, the brain, and behaviors, and support her district in figuring out what to DO with that information.  It was such a joy to work with her district- and with Lisa.

See you soon!!

Come train with me!! 2019 opportunities!

December 19, 2018

hello 2019

After closing down a year of teaching and traveling, I’m looking forward to all the excitement that 2019 will be bringing.  With my new TSA Pre-Check in hand, I’ll continue teaching therapists, parents, and adoption professionals throughout the country (and right here in ATX).

When I was in Portland last week, I received this email from some kind soul in the audience:

I appreciated your passion and your presentation.  You have a great talent in speaking.  I learned a great deal from you in addition to what you presented regarding being a therapist by watching your demeanor and seeing your interactions.  

Oh friends.  I’m finally doing it!!!  I’m finally conveying what I want to convey.  Not just content and facts- I can spew facts all day long.  But presence.  A way of being.  Cultivating the space of connection for an audience, impacting hundreds…and then they impact…and they impact…and they impact….

I hope we connect in 2019- there will be a lot of opportunities!!!

Marti will be my next guest presenter on my webinar series, presenting “Choosing Therapeutic Activity  Based on Neuro-Sensory Assessment.”  That’s a mouthful but really she’ll be helping us be more thoughtful about which sensory intervention/support best suites our child based on their behaviors and needs.

I’ve so grateful Marti accepted my invitation!!!  (Pssst…we are also both appearing at a conference in San Antonio in January…click HERE to check that out!!!)

Being Dynamically Awake…

November 19, 2018

About two months ago, I messaged my friend and colleague Marshall Lyles and said “Let’s do a webinar series about the kind of presence in the therapy room that we are always talking about.”

So we did 🙂

After much brainstorming, we landed on the title “Cultivating Resonance: Embracing the WE in Play Therapy.”

The webinar series started last week, and part 2 airs tonight at 7pm.  Even though we’ve already begun, you can still register and receive access to ALL the recordings! (And CEs!! ***depending on your state and license…see my website for details***)

Here’s a just a little portion from last week!

You can head over to my website to read all the details and to register!!

FASD & Other Drugs Effects {Webinar}

October 17, 2018

I had such an awesome time hosting my first guest webinar last month with Melanie Chung-Sherman, LCSW on race and development that I knew I needed to partner up more often.  Be on the look-out for more and more guest webinars.  I can bring you topics that lie outside my area of expertise, develop and nurture new (& old) relationships, and have a lot of fun.  There is clearly no reason NOT to host guest webinars!  It’s win-win-win for all of us!

This month I’m teaming up with a new professional acquaintance, Eileen Devine, LCSW of www.FASDNorthwest.com.  I met Eileen this past April when I was presenting in Oregon for the Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center and we hit it off immediately!  Since then, we’ve stayed in touch via phone and email and I knew she would be an awesome guest talking about a verrrrry important topic!  FASD & Other Drug Effects: Understanding and Applying a Brain Based Approach to Parenting.

Eileen brings us both her personal and professional expertise.  She has a clinical practice as an FASD consultant AND is parenting a child impacted by FAS.  Eileen has trained with Diane Malbin and is a certified facilitator with FASCETS.  She is also an instructor with Post-Master’s Certificate in Adoption and Foster Therapy (I’m a graduate of that program!!!) through Portland State University’s Child Welfare Partnership, training other therapist on the neurobehavioral model.

This will obviously a rich and informative webinar!!  The webinar airs Wednesday October 24th, but as always, you do NOT have to attend live.  Everyone who registers (only $14!!!) receives lifetime and unlimited access to the audio and video recordings.

Cultivating Resonance- Online training for Child/Adolescent & Play Therapists

October 15, 2018

“Marshall- let’s do an online event where we talk about something that’s hard to talk about…you know, that energetic WE space that exists BETWEEN two people.  And how cultivating that space is where the magic of therapy really happens….not with toys, art supplies, or fancy techniques…”

And so it began. 

11

Cultivating Resonance is a pretty hard thing to tackle in an ONLINE experience.  Without question, it’s pretty challenging to experience the quality of resonance without actually BEING with someone.  But hey, Marshall and I like a challenge!

Mostly we love the fact that the internet lets us reach lots and lots and LOTS of people.  And we feel pretty darn passionate about helping therapists come back to the foundation of their work- RESONANCE.  The WE space.  Bringing your entire self into the therapy room so the resonance circuits in the brain can come alive and create the change we are hoping for with our clients.

So we are going to dive into six hours of conversation about:

  • Cultivating Resonance (what does that even mean?!?! and how do we know it’s important?)
  • Bringing your whole self as a therapist into the therapy room (resonance depends on this)
  • Harnessing the power of rupture and repair as opportunities for healing and integration, not mess-ups that trigger the therapist’s shame
  • Helping parents develop resonance with their child

You can attend this four-part webinar series LIVE or register to receive the recordings.  You’ll get 6 CEs (both APT** and state licensing CEs).

Building Trust (by addressing the hard stuff): Race & Development WEBINAR

September 5, 2018

My first webinar guest presenter!!! September 12, 2018 ~ 7pm central time

EventBriteHeader

Have you ever heard Melanie speak?  She is truly remarkable.  We met years and years ago at an Adoption Knowledge Affiliates conference (where we are both regular presenters) and instantly formed a close professional relationship.  I’ve been lucky that our relationship has blossomed into a friendship!

Melanie has the unique ability to bring together expertise in attachment, trauma, adoption, and race.   She was my obvious first choice when I decided I wanted to expand my webinars into having guest presenters!!

This one-hour webinar is for you if:

  • You are parenting a child of color

  • You work with children of color (teacher, social worker, case worker, CASA, therapist, Sunday School Teacher, etc.)

  • You feel uncertain or uncomfortable about how to address the impact of race and racial awareness

Together, we will:

  • Define racism, discrimination, and oppression

  • Gain rudimentary knowledge of racial identity development

  • Take a closer look at trust-based connection and race

  • Learn basic skills to address race

For only $14, everyone who registers will receive lifetime and unlimited access to the recordings (so, you don’t have to attend live- although that’s always fun!!!).

For all the details and registration information, CLICK HERE.
