Developmental Considerations in Therapy

Winter 23-24 dates TBD

Development occurs throughout childhood and adolescence across Intellectual, Physical, Emotional, Psychological and Social-Relational Domains.  Familiarity with typical development across domains is important to understanding the impact of life events and traumatic experiences.  

 

This training will present information  about critical periods in development from a neurological, integrative framework. the impact of significant events, traumatic instances and emotional neglect will also be presented. 

 

Information and experiential exercises will be included to increase your understanding of developmental stages, vulnerabilities and resilience which can enhance your regular practice with clients who are physically out of childhood.

Learning Objectives

1. Understand realms of typical development and the complex interplay between them throughout development

 

2. Gain Familiarity with the characteristics of the three broad developmental periods and their sub-phases: Childhood, Adolescence, Emerging Adulthood

 

3. Identify specific developmental tasks for each phase of development and the unique risks and vulnerabilities inherent therein

 

4. Understand how developmental risk and protective factors from each phase impact vulnerability and resilience which informs how adults show up in life and therapy

 

5. Integrate developmental information in case conceptualization and treatment planning

Continuing Education:

14 hours of Continuing Education approved by:

  • Minnesota Board of Psychology  - LP

  • Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health Therapists 

    • LPC, LPCC, LADC

 

14 hours of Continuing Education approved by

  • Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy

 

MN Board of Social Work: Multiple LICSWs have taken this training over the last few years and have successfully submitted these hours to the board for their continuing education requirements.  (This board does not provide continuing education credits to individual trainings only organizations that do multiple trainings per year.)

The onsite training will be at The Justin Center on 694 and LongLake Road for up to 50 participants. There is ample room  for small groups of 3-4 to practice the skills that we will be teaching and one of us will facilitate the small groups there while the others will facilitate the small groups via zoom. There are large screen TVs to watch the Powerpoints and connect to the Zoom participants throughout the training.

 

A second option is to register with 3-5 colleagues and meet together at a place of your arranging. It works best if you can cast Zoom to a TV to watch the presenters. You will then be able to practice in person with the group you are meeting with and will be assigned to one "breakout room" so that one of the trainers can check in on your group during the practice times. We can assist with getting connected if needed.

 

The third option is to watch the training via Zoom on your own and then participate in practice sessions via "breakout rooms" with other participants who are attending individually and remotely. Our experience training over Zoom suggests that it is to your advantage to meet in a small group rather than indidvually however we know that this is not possible for some individuals.
