The Tulane School of Social Work is proud to present a special workshop with trauma experts Mark Russell and Charles Figley entitled "Treating Traumatic Stress Injuries: An Overview" on Friday, April 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Tulane School of Social Work in Room 103. A total of six CEUs will be offered. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the workshop starting at 9 a.m.
Building on more than 25 years as a Navy clinical psychologist Mark Russell and Director of the Antioch and trauma pioneer Charles Figley share their insights on human responses to trauma and how sometimes a survivor needs time to mobilize their resilience resources. They will discuss with those attending how best to understand post-traumatic reactions and especially the spectrum of causes and consequences beyond being diagnosed with a mental illness. Their thesis, among others, is that social work, clinical psychology, psychiatry, mental health counseling, psychiatric nursing, and substance abuse counselors should attend to the INJURY and less to the disorder. Participants will be invited to share their stories as survivors or of treating survivors.
The afternoon will be devoted to providing an introduction to EMDR treatment planning for the spectrum of war trauma injuries to include treating acute stress disorder and chronic combat-PTSD, traumatic grief, depression and suicide, substance use disorder, co-morbid mild traumatic brain injury, medically unexplained physical symptoms, phantom limb pain from traumatic amputation, and any condition that could be improved by suddenly and significantly lowering subjective sensations of stress.
The workshop objectives include:
