Peter Levine PhD on Trauma: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness

Today’s new release is a 3 DVD set from one of our most popular authors – Dr. Peter Levine and is about one of the most relevant and growing topics of today – Trauma.

PETER LEVINE PHD ON TRAUMA: HOW THE BODY RELEASES TRAUMA AND RESTORES GOODNESS – 3 DVDS / 6 CPD HOURS
http://www.psychotherapydvds.com/Peter-Levine-PhD-on-Trauma-How-the-Body-Releases-Trauma-and-Restores-Goodness

Join international trauma expert and author, Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. to learn how sensation-based (as opposed to emotional or rational), treatment is the key inroad into the trauma, and how to slowly uncouple fear from the natural immobility state. He also discusses his nine principles in successful trauma healing, all told through his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event.

Representing the full scope of his life’s work and discovery, Dr. Levine talks about the evolutionary underpinnings of trauma. It also includes an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, the importance of the so-called "primitive" Vagus system, and how its connections through the viscera and body are a key ally in trauma therapy.

Assessment of ADHD in Children and Teens with Russell Barkley, Ph.D. - NEW

This week’s new release focuses on ADHD in Children and Teens and comes from Dr. Russell Barkley, arguably the world’s leading expert on ADHD, having published 21 books, rating scales, and clinical manuals, and over 250 scientific articles and book chapters related to the nature, assessment, and treatment of ADHD. It is perfect for educational psychologists, or those who encounter young people with ADHD in their practice.

In this seminar recording, Dr. Russell Barkley presents his view on the best means for clinically evaluating ADHD in children and adolescents. The goals of the evaluation are initially discussed followed by information to be obtained before the day of the evaluation as well as topics to be covered in the initial interview with parents and children/teens. The issues to be addressed by the evaluation and the best methods for doing so are then presented. The types of rating scales and psychological tests that are useful in the evaluation of ADHD will also be reviewed. Special attention is given to the problems with using neuropsychological testing to make a diagnosis of ADHD. The presentation concludes with the topics essential to cover in the feedback conference with the parents on the results of the evaluation.
