Event description

Description

Mental health and allied professionals are invited to explore therapySPACE, a unique and successful approach for treating children and adolescents affected by early childhood trauma, and for supporting their caregivers. It will examine the nature of trauma and broken attachment, their impact on children and families, and their resolution through a model that combines multiple approaches to treatment.

The seminar will be led by Billy Kaplan, LCSW, a nationally-known, highly-rated speaker and clinician. Billy is President & Clinical Director of House Calls Counseling, Chicagoland’s premier provider of attachment-focused, trauma-informed psychotherapy in the home.

Drawing upon his extensive experience and training, Billy will help seminar participants to understand the impact of trauma on a child’s brain and body, the child’s neurological responses to trauma, and the basic developmental stages that are often missed when trauma is present in early childhood. Billy will focus the seminar series on the diagnosis of attachment-related problems and the fundamental elements of treatment. Video of live sessions will be used.

The seminar series will also offer clinicians approaches to helping the caregivers of trauma- and attachment-disordered children. It will focus on providing them with safe, engaging, non-shaming experiences that will enlist them as therapeutic partners and teach them the basics of “therapeutic parenting,” a way of being with, and healing, their children. It has been said that when treating children, parents are either at least 51% of the solution or 75% of the problem.

  • “Very thoughtful and well-informed presentation”

The seminars start Tuesday, October 3, 2017, and they will be held every other Tuesday morning from 9:30 am to 11:00 am at the House Calls Counseling offices: 3330 Old Glenview Road, Wilmette. This biweekly series of seminars is limited to eight participants. The cost of the seminars is $50 each, and pre-payment of four seminars is required. The seminars will continue throughout 2018 and may be extended to meet the needs of the participants. This event is for Social Workers and Counselors. CEUs will be offered.
