Here's a peek at what your CYMHS certification training includes:
The challenging behaviors we frequently observe in youth with ODD, trauma, and attachment disorders are the tip of the iceberg. As helping professionals, we must go below the waterline to reveal the most important treatment goal for our clients: the neuroception of safety.

Join Drs. Porges and Delahooke as they teach you how Polyvagal Theory helps us “look inside” the nervous system of individuals and parents who are dysregulated. Through this cutting-edge lens, you’ll learn how to apply the best strategies to shift your client’s physiological and emotional states to calm with feelings of safety—leading the way to improved communication, relational satisfaction, and joy!
When working with kids, Anxiety and OCD will show up — and after the past year, anxious cracks have become chasms for many anxious families.

It’s common for clinicians to get caught up in content (what kids worry about) instead of focusing on the how and why of anxiety — all the more detrimental with a missed OCD issue!

In this presentation, Lynn will show you how (and why!) to sidestep this content trap and move away from all-too-common elimination strategies.
In this session, you’ll learn how to assess for the signs and symptoms of trauma in your school—a critical first step to Reacclimate and Regulate! You’ll then learn evidence-based strategies to meet the physiological, safety, and social needs in order to create safe and supportive pathways for learning.

You’ll learn a step-by-step plan that:
  • Creates a foundation of safety
  • Builds trust, communication, and problem-solving skills
  • Empowers resilience so that students are confident in their decision-making skills

You’ll leave with resources, tools and activities to create an effortless environment of student learning and growth!
This workshop offers an approach that focuses on the physiologic, nonverbal connection between parent and child to improve the relationship. Using two attachment-based modalities—Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Theraplay—learn how to enhance regulation, connection, and joy between parents & children as well as guide parents to do reparative work around family trauma.

Discover how to:
  • Get to the heart of a child’s deeper thoughts, feelings, wishes, and beliefs without relying on the child’s ability to verbalize feelings
  • Facilitate active dialogue between parents and children that’s both safe and gets to their core issues
  • Practice scenarios for optimal arousal, affect regulation, and de-escalating child-parent dysregulation
  • Intervene and redirect a misattuned or critical parent in a gentle way
Many behavioral, somatic and emotional symptoms in children are manifestations of traumatic and adverse experiences that are held in the child’s biology. The eight phases and procedural steps of EMDR therapy provide the structure for you to work with the legacy left by trauma in the embodied mind of the child.

Join Ana Gomez, MC, LPC, world-renowned expert on complex trauma, intergenerational trauma, and dissociation as she shows you how:
  • To organize the structure of EMDR therapy to meet the child’s developmental demands
  • To use EMDR therapy with complex vs single incident trauma in children
  • Individual EMDR treatment with children and their parents heals generational wounds
The latest evidence shows youth’s suicidality has increased due to greater social isolation, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns during COVID-19. As helping clinicians, we must stay abreast of the most effective suicide prevention programs our young clients so desperately need.

Join Dr. Jobes as he guides you through:
  • Integrated and applied explanation of current research on the impact of COVID-19 on youth mental health and suicide risk
  • Evidence-based assessments, interventions, and treatments for managing suicidal risk and helping young clients grow
  • The future of youth suicide prevention and exploration of mental health nuances in a post-pandemic world

This session will leave you feeling confident and capable in your ability to move young clients toward hope and healing!
With the combination of the non-phase treatment approach of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Play Therapy, children will now have the opportunity to learn the various parts that make them who they are, express the feelings and beliefs of their parts, and gain knowledge that others have parts as well - in a creative way.

Carmen will teach you the integration of the therapeutic powers of play and Internal Family Systems to facilitate communication, foster emotional wellness, enhance social relationships and increase personal strengths.
The role of a school-based mental health provider is complex, nuanced, and multi-faceted. And as more schools deliver on the urgent need for mental health services for students, clinicians are finding themselves in a new role where the culture, expectations, and delivery of services is unlike any other setting.

Join Ashley Rose, LCSW, LSSW, for this 3-hour training that highlights everything you need to know to confidently provide quality care and establish your unique role within the school, including how to:
  • Develop positive working relationships with teachers, administration, and support staff
  • Provide evidence-based strategies and interventions for anxiety, depression, ADHD, oppositional behavior, and more
  • Navigate the gray area of protecting confidentiality in such a public setting
  • And more!

If you work with kids or adolescents in a school, community, or in-home setting, you don’t want to miss this compelling training!
Join Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, psychologist, expert in technology overuse, and author of the best-selling book Glow Kids, for this 90-minute recording packed with insight and strategies every clinician and educator should know about the effects of screen time – and what you can do about it.

You’ll learn:
  • How screen culture has infiltrated our children and adolescents’ lives – and what it means for mental health
  • The neurological impact of screen-based learning and education
  • Strategies and interventions to address and moderate excessive screen use

This 90-minute recording unveils the concepts of social and collective trauma and how to help children, adolescents, and their families who are impacted by societal events such as pandemics, war, natural disasters, and violent events.

You’ll learn:
  • Activities and concepts to address the impact of social and collective trauma
  • Unique approaches to maintain routine, sensory-based strategies, respiratory-based techniques, and mindfulness and the connection to trauma care

The recording concludes with discussions about the future and moving beyond the trauma.
This program will explore the deeper source of the well-known phenomenon of burnout —when people engaged in caring for others they experienced a depletion of their energies, a psychic and physical lassitude.

Practices will be taught to prevent what is known as compassion fatigue, and to restore our energies.

Join Dr. Maté’ as he shares:
  • The three major stressors we must know about
  • Why stress remains hidden in our culture
  • How to recognize stress and burnout and prevent it
  • How the understanding of stress can inform and enhance our work
Approximately 60% of children and adolescents in treatment will be prescribed medication for anxiety, so it is essential that clinicians know what anti-anxiety medications are available and the medications’ benefits and side effects.

Join Dr. Stephanie Sarkis as she shares the types of anti-anxiety medications (Black Box warnings on antidepressant suicide risk in young adults), and the importance of clinicians keeping open lines of communication with prescribers — helping the client and his or her parents get the best treatment possible for their child.
As students return to classrooms this fall, teachers and other school-based professionals have an opportunity to empower students to take control of their own learning through a focus on executive skills.

Join Peg Dawson as she teaches you a student-driven approach that engages students in a discussion about their learning, what they learned from remote and hybrid learning, and how to incorporate their input in a curriculum that teaches them how to:
  • Assess their own executive skill strengths and challenges
  • Identify barriers to effective learning and overcome those barriers
  • Troubleshoot when strategies don’t work
  • Set goals that are personal, meaningful, and attainable

Students will be in greater control of their learning and teachers will be satisfied in seeing movement toward self-management and self-determination in the students they work with!
