About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved In-Person Workshop/Webinar (4-CEUs)
NYSED Social Work Board Approved Certificate will be awarded upon completing both sessions. This workshop provides a framework for understanding the contributions of brain development to human behavior (i.e. cognitive, emotional development, reasoning). Emphasis is placed on neuroplasticity, early vulnerabilities in child brain development, executive functioning, memory recall, interpersonal relationships, and impact of trauma across the life course. Practitioners will be able to consider and appreciate how experiences shape gene expression. Specific emphasis will be placed on how traumatic life events (i.e. abuse, exposure to violence, complicated grief/loss) can be a risk-factor for developing symptoms of psychopathology (anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse). Practitioners will be able to identify methods for ameliorating the long-term effects of trauma.
