“Fix my kid.” This is the desperate cry of parents and caregivers who walk into your office seeking help.
You start the therapeutic process with your go-to techniques. And your client progresses…for a while. But when they fail to make additional gains, or even regress, your skills as a therapist are put to the test. When all your usual tools have been exhausted, you’re left feeling helpless and wondering how to move forward.
Breathe new life into therapeutic approaches for resistant and avoidant cases with creative, activity-based interventions grounded in the proven success of CBT!
Amanda Crowder, LCSW, delivers an energetic technique-heavy workshop that will give you the tools you need to harness the power of a creative, activity-based CBT approach. Amanda will provide the exercises and interventions she’s found most effective in improving outcomes for children and adolescents with disruptive behavior, trauma, ADHD, defiance, anger, anxiety, depression and family conflict.
Case examples, activities and hands on practice will enable you to easily integrate these essential skills in your practice and allow you to individualize them for a variety of disorders and temperaments. Evidence-based techniques help you to drastically increase children’s engagement in treatment, improve emotional functioning, strengthen relationships, maximize academic engagement, and minimize acting out behaviors. Must have strategies create an affiliation between you, the child, and family members - boosting parent/child satisfaction, motivation and retention in therapy.
Better still, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the application of what you’ve learned under Amanda’s expert supervision allowing its immediate incorporation into your clinical work.
Watch Amanda during this workshop and finish feeling prepared and empowered to improve the lives of your most difficult-to-treat young clients with a creative, activity-based CBT approach!
