Workshop Description: 

Helping Students with Trauma and Emotional Dysregulation 

Counselors work daily with students who are unable to regulate their emotions. Trauma and ACE’s are a large part of this epidemic and based on brain research, this workshop will help counselors learn how to identify triggers, teach effective coping strategies, and help students go from debilitated to empowered.

15-Minute Counseling Techniques that Work: What You Didn’t Learn in Grad School

Feel like you don’t have enough time to do counseling? Participants will learn 15 counseling techniques that can be implemented in less than 15 minutes from when a student walks into your office. The program can be suited to elementary, middle, or high school counselors (or a combination of all) and participants will not only learn the strategies but will be doing them alongside Allison as she teaches how to implement them. Get out your Play-Doh! This hands-on, experiential program will revolutionize your counseling department and help kids leave feeling empowered.
