Raising Vibrant Children: Research Reveals the Critical Role

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Martha E. Wadsworth Converging evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and biology shows that a well-developed psychobiological stress response system that supports healthy coping and self-regulation is critical to the development of vibrant children—children who thrive even when faced with difficult life circumstances. Dr. Wadsworth will synthesize current evidence demonstrating the critical roles of stress reactivity and regulation in fostering resilience, present exciting new research showing the biological underpinnings of healthy self-regulation, and introduce new findings from her own research showing the dynamic interplay between the physiologic stress responses systems (e.g., hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis) and children’s cognitive and behavioral coping and self-regulation responses to stress.

In this webinar Ms Fritchle will look at the newest diagnostic features for low desire and talk about the discrepancies in how to define low desire at all. Ms Fritchle will outline a holistic sexual assessment that takes into account the interrelated physical, social, relational, spiritual, and mental aspects that can impact desire.

Special Education and Student Achievement: A Systemic Lens

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Kathleen C. Laundy, PsyD Participants will be introduced to the value of systemic training as it relates to special education.

A model called the Longitudinal Overview of Growth in Systems (LOGs) will be employed to help guide assessment and understanding of the wide range of services that MFTs can provide to administrators, teachers, students and families in schools.
