  5. DE&I Lunch: The Intersection of Transgender Health and Education for Diversity »

    July 10, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Due to the marginalization of transgender people, having basic health needs met is a barrier for those who identify as trans. Research proves that a major barrier lies within higher education because educators are not discussing trans topics, specifically around hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgeries, as well as ways to communicate with and address trans people. Because overall well-being and physical health needs are not being met, civic health/civic well-being and a trans person’s quality of life are directly connected. This presentation will explore techniques to be more inclusive in and out of the classroom, as well as ways to actively support trans people as they strive to address their basic health care needs.

  10. Current Treatment for Trauma Survivors »

    July 12, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

    The purpose of this mini-course is to gain a holistic understanding of the impact of trauma on functioning across the lifespan, and to acquire basic skills in assessment and treatment of trauma necessary for clinical practice. The effects of trauma and traumatic stress can be profound whether the trauma was a single episode/event, or was experienced over a period of time. Trauma impacts many components of overall development and health including but not limited to in the areas of attachment, cognition, emotion regulation, dissociation, and ability to self-regulate and self-soothe. The first half of the course will focus on both developing a framework for understanding the way that traumatic events shape people over time as well as learning to assess for traumatic stress. We will draw on knowledge from the fields of attachment, neurobiology, and child development as well as data from current studies such as the ACE study. Special attention will be given to the way that discrimination, community, and system-level traumas impact individuals. We will examine the classifications of trauma-related disorders in the DSM-5. The second half of the course will focus on building skills for interventions with clients. Participants can expect to gain knowledge about the evidence base that exists. We will review the existing evidence base for interventions for PTSD as well as traumatic stress more generally. There will be special emphasis given to skills in mindfulness, self-regulation/self-soothing, working with trauma narratives, and the mind-body connections. Each participant in the course can expect to leave with an enhanced ability to engage in trauma-sensitive assessments, to understand the impact of trauma across the lifespan, to implement trauma-informed interventions, and to build resilience for secondary traumatic stress.
