Text Messaging: Guidelines for Behavioral Health Providers @ Webinar
Sep 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The rapid expansion of mobile technology infrastructure presents an opportunity to improve health and health care through text messaging. Text messaging can be a safe, clinically promising, and feasible tool to augment care for individuals with mental health concerns.

Recognizing the potential of text messaging to improve health and health care, this 2-part webinar series will review the technical and administrative requirements for the ethical and HIPAA compliant use of text messaging.

About the Presenter:

Roy Huggins was an independent web developer for many years before making the transition to a therapy private practice. He quickly found that the mental health profession needed expert guidance on technology topics. Since 2010, Roy has continuously worked to expand his understanding of his colleagues’ needs and stay up-to-date with the ever-evolving digital world, teach ethics at Portland State University and consult on issues relating to technology in therapy practice.

Befriending Stress: A Neurological Perspective @ Webinar
Oct 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Knowing and understanding the autonomic nervous system can help us identify the process of stress in our bodies and can help us to help young people with self regulation and even healing from trauma.

Stress affects all of us, especially now more than ever. It can be helpful to have a deeper understanding of the neurobiology of stress and our nervous system. Knowing and understanding the autonomic nervous system can help us identify the process of stress in our bodies and can help us to help young people with self regulation and even healing from trauma.

The mind/body connection is deeper and more important to attend to in our work, especially when young people may not have the language to articulate their feelings and experiences.

The goals for this webinar are to:

  • Provide an evolutionary and developmental perspective of the neurophysiology of stress in the body
  • Shift the focus from “you” to us”
  • Understand the role of primary caregiver training in addressing self regulation in youth in our care.
