TRAUMA RECORDED WEBINARS
Global Crisis and LGBTQ Suicide and Safety
Presented by Jess Homan, LISW-S
1 CE- Meets ethics requirements
Suicide is more pervasive in the LGBTQ community than the general population. This training explores risk and protective factors specific to LGBTQ people, assessment tools, and what safety can mean in the LGBTQ population. Participants will learn to identify ways to assess risk during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as safety planning unique to the LGBTQ community.
Trauma and the Brain
Presented By Alexis Rae Burrow, LPCC-S
This webinar is designed to be an introduction to neurobiology of trauma. It will present specific brain structures and biological responses associated with stress, trauma and anxiety. During this webinar we will discuss what happens to brain chemicals during a traumatic response beyond the terms “fight, flight or freeze.” Participants will have an opportunity to brainstorm and leave with an ability to discuss these biological responses with their clients.
Grief and Bereavement in the Present Moment
Presented By Luca Mendlein, LISW
In this webinar we will explore how grief can present in our communities during the 2020-2021 pandemic. We will discuss current areas of knowledge and suggested coping skills, specifically paying attention to how grief and loss exist in the body and offering methods of working with these responses. We will also explore ways in which grief affects marginalized populations, including members of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities. Discussion regarding current events and how this influences clients’ presentations in session will be discussed within the context of grief and loss.
