APS District Wide Counselor Training
January 2, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Dr. Craig Pierce, LMFT, LPCC & Courtney Custer, LMHC will be providing a training from 1:00pm-3:00pm to all APS counselors on Interpersonal Neurobiology, Trauma, Abuse & Neglect. The training will take place at the APS (6400 Uptown Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110).
Interpersonal Neurobiology, Trauma, Abuse and Neglect: Implications for Educators: Attendees of this course will gain insight and understanding of what it means to be trauma and developmentally informed in the educational setting. Participants will learn principles of neuroscience and brain development as it relates to the effects trauma, abuse, and neglect have on students. Attendees will also learn the importance of early childhood development and attachment in relation to sequential neuro-development. Additional information will be provided on the relationship between the arousal continuum and the capacity for self-regulation. Ideas for creating a trauma informed school will be central to this session. As such, participants will be trained on the functions of behavior, as well as the concept of internal working models which helps to guide school staff in determining appropriate interventions. Additionally, we will explore the escalation curve and help school staff identify proactive steps to disrupt escalating behavior.
