Description

Following acts of mass violence clinicians are often left feeling powerless, anxious and looking for answers.

Why does this happen? Can I identify the warning signs and Intervene with those at-risk of committing violent acts? What can I do to help survivors facing the devastating scars of trauma, anxiety, panic depression and grief left behind by unspeakable violence?

A must-attend for mental health professionals working in an era of pervasive violence, this critical one-day seminar will explore the connection between mental health issues and violence, analyze research and research limitations surrounding its study, and contemplate the role of clinicians in both the prevention and aftermath of mass violence.

Better still, this seminar will go beyond the research and give you detailed clinical guidance on working with a variety of populations and ages, including children, adolescents, parents and community members who may walk into your office as a person at-risk of committing a violent act or as a survivor of one.

YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO BE UNPREPARED

Sign up today and leave feeling ready and able to identify the risk factors, effectively intervene with clients at-risk of performing violent acts, and provide hope and healing to those whose lives have been engulfed by mass violence.

"The presenter, Dr. Kathy Seifert, was incredibly knowledgeable but also presented difficult material in an understandable way. She was easy to listen to and her approach was so comforting. I learned so much from her and appreciate her work and her sharing her research and experiences. She also made me want to learn more about treatment and good assessments for risk factors and probabilities. "
