Event description

Description

Selective Mutism is a childhood anxiety disorder characterized by an ‘inability’ to speak in various social settings. These children are able to speak at home and in settings where they are comfortable. However, this anxiety significantly impacts the ability of the child to participate in both social and academic activities in the school environment.

Early identification and intervention is key in the treatment of Selective Mutism. This workshop is based on scientifically-supported techniques of behavior intervention led by Dr. Aimee Kotrba, Licensed Psychologist and expert in the field of Selective Mutism.

Participants Will:

- Identify and evaluate for Selective Mutism in the clinic and school

- Learn what schools/parents can do to help

- Leave with a specific, evidence-based intervention plan!

- List actions for day-to-day management of anxiety

- Learn practical techniques for reducing anxiety

- Develop special education plans for children with Selective Mutism

- Identify appropriate social and academic expectations

Workshop cost = $169 (reduced price of $50 for graduate students); includes informational packet, coffee, and snacks for live workshop attendees.

6.0 CE credits are available for Psychologists, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Counselors for both attendees and live webinar (intermediate level).

Register online or call (810) 225-3417. Hurry, space is very limited! Registration ends on Oct. 23 or when seating fills.

Dr. Aimee Kotrba is the owner of Thriving Minds, a psychology clinic with locations in Brighton and Chelsea Michigan. She is a nationally-known expert and speaker on the identification and treatment of Selective Mutism, a childhood anxiety disorder. Dr. Kotrba has authored Selective Mutism: An Assessment and Intervention Guide for Therapists, Educators, and Parents and Overcoming Selective Mutism: A Field Guide for Parents.
