Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

12:30pm-4:00pm

Workshop Description:

This intermediate presentation will cover ways in which first responders, medical provides, social service providers, and mental health providers can enhance their delivery of culturally competent trauma- informed care. Participants will be introduced to major theorists and practices related to working with African American families.  Additionally, trauma-informed approaches will be explored. 

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

1)  Identify at least three culturally sensitive practices to integrate into their work with African American youth and their families.

2) Identify specific trauma-informed practices in working with A.A. youth and families exposed to trauma.

3) Define and discuss the implications of exposure to complex trauma.

4) List and identify ways in which protective factors can support (or buffer against) the effects of exposure to trauma.

 

Professional Bio of Nicole A. Tefera, PsyD:

Dr. Nicole A. Tefera is a licensed clinical psychologist who works both in private practice as the owner of Carmichael Consulting and Behavioral Health Services and at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in downtown Chicago.  Dr. Tefera treats a wide variety of problems including abuse and trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, behavioral problems, adjustment to chronic illnesses, medical traumatic stress, stress-related illness, grief and loss, and relationship/work concerns.  Dr. Tefera provides consultation and reflective supervision to care providers and treatment to individuals of any age, and she specializes in the treatment of children (as young as infancy through adolescence) and their families.  Of important note is Dr. Tefera’s proficiency in the implementation of Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an evidenced-based trauma-focused treatment model (developed by Alicia Liebermann and Patricia Van Horn) for young children and their families.  Additionally, Dr. Tefera is an endorsed trainer of the Child-Parent Psychotherapy model.  In her role at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Dr. Tefera serves as the Director of Applied Professional Practice, where she is primarily involved in the administration and development of doctoral students who are training to become psychologists. 

Dr. Tefera earned her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2004.  Her interests include building and sustaining culturally responsible and sensitive service delivery organizations and integrating spirituality and healing practices into therapy. Through this approach to treatment, Dr. Tefera asks her clients to examine their spiritual and/or religious beliefs and practices as means to develop adaptive coping strategies (e.g., prayer, meditation, etc.) to aid in their healing process and to inspire hope.
