Presentation Topics

Acting out behavior, especially among school age children, has been a frustrating and hard to change problem for therapists, teachers and parents. Complicating this issue is that conduct disordered behavior, especially in boys, is often misdiagnosed and instead labeled as ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, major depression, sociopathy or simply a “bad kid." Many of these children are inappropriately prescribed psychotropic medication in a desperate attempt to control their behavior.

During this discussion, Dr. Hill presents a systems-based approach to treatment that minimizes pathology as a cause and emphasize techniques from social learning, family therapy, cognitive therapy, and with a specific focus on attachment disorders within the family system.

Dr. Hill will also teach parents to set limits with their children and to deal with the attachment issues that are at the core of any dysfunctional parent/child interaction.

 

This informative and enlightening workshop covers the following issues:

How to initially intervene and reduce the acting out behavior

 

  • How to help the acting out child develop better coping skills and deal with internal affect leading to low self-esteem and a negative sense of self
  • How to help the family system reorganize so that daily family interactions do not inadvertently maintain the symptoms and lead to further dysfunction
  • A discussion of how attachment theory can help in understanding the genesis of conduct disorder
  • How parents can learn more effective parenting skills such as limit setting and how to initiate a more positive and deeper connection with their children
  • This workshop will be both didactic and interactive and will allow time for questions and answers.

 

 

Can’t Get No Satisfaction: Improving Our Personal Relationships

How to Get Satisfaction with Our Children, Parents and in our Marriages

 

Have you ever felt so crazed and busy that you are not enjoying your relationships with the people you care about?

The workshop will further discuss how to be “in the moment” every day, in order to learn how to enjoy the simple things in life and feel more fulfilled in our personal relationships. Time is allowed for an interactive discussion.

The trauma of the 9/11 attack and how therapists responded to the crisis using mostly critical incident debriefing methods of trauma work is now being challenged as not effective. This controversy has initiated a rethinking of how best to help people recover from traumatic events, including grief and loss reactions to the loss of a significant other.

In this seminar, which is aimed toward therapists and trauma professionals, Dr. Hill discusses the following issues:

 

  • Actual 9/11 trauma work and what worked and what didn’t during the crisis
  • Review of current clinical thinking as to how trauma work should be conducted
  • A review and discussion of the current controversy in the trauma field
  • Discussion and presentation of new techniques and approaches to trauma recovery work
  • Comparing the differences between acute and chronic trauma and PTSD

 

 

Dr. Hill can also tailor workshop topics to target specific client needs.
