Treating Trauma and PTSD in Older Adults: Uncovering and Healing a Lifetime of Experiences

Wednesday, June 16, 2021
12:00 – 1:00 PM

Older adults, generally defined as those over 65 years of age, carry with them a lifetime of experiences from achieving personal milestones to memorable family occasions to significant events in history. While many can look back and reflect on how these moments shaped their character into who they are today, some of the more adverse experiences can be categorized as trauma, the likes of which have been the root of behavioral concerns and negative patterns. Although approximately 90% of older adults have experienced some form of trauma in their lives, many will not work through their experiences, especially if they minimize it or if it happened a long time ago. This webinar will define how trauma and PTSD presents in an older adult, including symptomatic indicators and common co-occurring conditions. We will provide effective screening tools to uncover trauma/PTSD and share treatment modalities that have proven to be successful with this population.

Family Business Dynamics: The Intersection of Psychology and Strategy

Thursday, August 5, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
1 CE credit available

Multigenerational family businesses are often deemed as being reliable and trustworthy with consumers. At the foundation of these businesses are family systems with their own complexities, whose decisions and actions not only impact one another, but can impede on the business as well. When such family systems are dealing with substance use disorder or other mental health concerns, the construct of the family system can be tested, and the sustainability of the family business may lay in the balance. This webinar will explore the psychology of the family unit and how their dynamics can roll over into their family business. We will provide practical solutions and best practices that families can utilize and integrate for success in healing themselves, ultimately allowing them to take on the challenges that come with operating a family business.

Collaborative Care and Community Partnerships in Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Settings

Wednesday, June 30, 2021
12:00 – 1:00 PM EST

1 CE credit available

Research shows that patient outcomes for chronic diseases, mental health disorders, PTSD/trauma, and substance use disorder can all be improved when collaborative, interprofessional models of care are utilized (Henderson, et al., 2017; Kilbourne, et al., 2019; Wolk, et al., 2021). Using a community partnership, or integrated care model also increases access to care (Henderson, 2017). Code of Ethics standards across health professions and organizations also advise that high quality collaboration be engaged in to promote ethical care of patients in instances when multiple providers are working with a patient simultaneously or when a patient transfers care from one provider to another. However, many providers lack awareness of how they are situated in a collaborative service model, or may lack skills, training or resources to support the successful implementation of high-quality integrated care.
