Stress arises when people perceive threats to their well-being or think they cannot manage demands being made on them. Negative outcomes can occur for individuals when their stress levels exceed a manageable amount and they perceive themselves to be in a state of crisis. These crisis situations have the potential to activate physiological, psychological, and behavioral response mechanisms meant to aid in survival, and they require therapeutic interventions to manage or resolve.
In this two-hour continuing education web conference, Dr. Lyz DeBoer will describe how therapists can help clients effectively navigate crisis situations, regain a sense of stability, and cultivate resilience. Dr. DeBoer will describe her use of intentional focus to promote healthy responses to life circumstances and how clinicians can encourage processes of healing and growth that aid in an individual’s ability to develop resilience. Dr. DeBoer will explain how mental health professionals can assess an individual’s needs based on their situational, environmental, and historical factors to determine appropriate and effective interventions.
Dr. DeBoer will outline specific information about optimal treatment interventions to use in therapy during and after periods of acute distress. She will share new strategies that encourage healthier emotional and physiological responses while enhancing recovery as well as strategies to cultivate resilience. She will also review how mental health professionals are responsible for engaging in proactive, self-care behaviors that promote balance, enhance professional competence, and foster resilience in themselves.
