The Kempe Center Summer Institute on Child Protection

Date: 
Monday, July 6, 2015 - Friday, July 24, 2015
Time: 
Denver, CO
Sponsoring Agency: 
The Kempe Center
Description: 

In 1993, the U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect declared child abuse and neglect a "national emergency." More than 20 years later, child abuse and neglect continue to be a serious and prevalent public health problem. In the United States alone, 3 million reports of child abuse and neglect involving more than 6 million children are made each year. Many more go unreported. Without appropriate and timely intervention, research suggests that these children may experience long-term health problems.

The Kempe Center is launching a Summer Institute on Child Protection from July 6-24, 2015 in Denver, CO.  The Institute is for individuals interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in research, clinical practice, leadership and policy related to child abuse and neglect and family violence.  The short course, highly interactive format will provide ample opportunity to network with faculty, other participants, and special guests.  Contact us for course descriptions, faculty, tuition and registration procedures at Nyla.Nasser@childrenscolorado.org or go to our website at www.thekempecenter.org.
Don’t delay -- Registration is now open!
 
The Summer Institute is designed to improve knowledge, practice, and policy related to the prevention, identification, and treatment of child abuse and neglect and family violence. Participants will learn the latest approaches in research, clinical services, prevention and administration. Through special events, participants will have an opportunity to network with each other and with faculty.

The Evidence Based Treatment and Dissemination Center (EBTDC) of New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) is excited to announce the continuation of our Focused Clinical Webinars series, which began in April 2015. These 1-2 hour free, monthly training webinars feature an in-depth look at common elements among evidence-based practices. The sessions will explore various clinical principles, strategies, and frameworks that can be easily applied to everyday clinical practice, with a focus toward clinicians leaving with specific skills and practices to apply clinically. While the focus of these webinars is on children’s services, the strategies discussed may have wider applications. Participants will attend online webinars and engage in stimulating discussions led by experienced professionals. These webinars are overseen by licensed clinical psychologist and EBTDC Program Director, Dr. Alissa Gleacher. These clinical webinars are only open to staff at public child-serving agencies/programs in New York State.

This month’s Focused Clinical Webinar will be on Exposure. This webinar will cover the main steps of implementing exposure in therapy and discuss how to approach clients about practicing exposure, how to build a fear hierarchy, and other useful strategies when working with anxious clients.
