BECOMING A BEHAVIOURAL DETECTIVE

January 12, 2020
To Register: http://bit.ly/KimBarthelConference

Course Description
This 1 day workshop will provide an understanding of the integrated neurobiology of sensory processing and emotional/ relational problems that result in “challenging behavior”. Participants will be invited to become behavioral detectives, using clinical reasoning, to look deeper than the surface actions we observe. By seeking to understand why people do the things they do - from a myriad of perspectives, and by allowing compassion into the equation. The sessions will facilitate a mindset of clinical curiosity that will support treatment strategies at home, in school and in all levels of relationships.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify and discern the neurobiology of challenging behavior
  • To differentiate between the sensory, emotional and cognitive components of behavior
  • To understand the integration between visual, vestibular and auditory contributions to learning and engagement
  • To adopt a mindset of curiosity which supports relationships in becoming more healthy, respectful and connected

MedMom is an interdisciplinary center that serves children and youth by addressing their developmental, socio-emotional, behavioral, and learning needs. We provide integrated services covering various professional disciplines including Developmental Pediatrics, Special Education, Speech and Language Pathology, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy.

We are now accepting internship applications for the following tracks:

Psychotherapy- The Psychotherapy Track training provides an opportunity for aspiring clinical practitioners to immerse in various interventions and treatment settings that address mental health issues. It requires at least 16 hours per week of combined direct service, documentation/administrative work, supervision, and training. Counseling or psychotherapy coursework is mandatory. Trainees will be assigned to different programs depending on clinic needs and trainee interest (i.e. Low-Fee Clinic-Based Services, Group Interventions, School-Based Services, PGH Pediatric Oncology Mental Health Program, Executive Functioning Program). Didactic training will cover ethics of clinical practice, risk and crisis management, family systems approach, clinical interventions with young children, clinical interventions with teens, interdisciplinary practice, and termination/continuity of care.

Assessment- This training track is focused on developing knowledge and skills in conducting comprehensive evaluations for children and adolescents to address developmental, learning, and socio-emotional needs. Assessment Track training requires at least 16 hours per week, which includes conducting evaluation process, scoring and analysis, report-writing, feedback and plan development sessions, clinical supervision, and other training activities. Completion of graduate-level coursework in assessment is required (i.e. indivually administered cognitive & academic batteries, projective testing).

Interns need to be willing to complete the training cycle even if the hours are in excess of required school internship hours.
