For centuries philosophers, sociologists and psychologists have argued about the nature of the mind. While many definitions exist, most agree that the mind is that which enables one to engage with subjective awareness, intentionality, agency and some level of consciousness. This conference hopes to grow our awareness, insight and in turn attunement to specific qualities of mind. Once we identify the strengths and challenges of unique minds, we can cultivate skills in addressing the weaknesses and strengthening the strengths and in so doing secure hope for the future.

Statistics indicate that 3% of adults in any population have antisocial personality disorder. As a result, the probability of encountering this diagnosis in one’s practice as a healthcare worker or educator is small but significant in that if misdiagnosed can have important consequences for any interventions attempted with such individuals. Female individuals with antisocial personality disorder may also present in ways that appear atypical with regards to common perceptions of the disorder and need special focus and attention. In addition, children and teenagers may exhibit key indicators of vulnerability to such a diagnosis which, if unaddressed, may pose challenges prognostically with regards to future functioning.

Although frontal lobe dysfunction has always been thought to be the epicentre of ADHD behaviour, it is quite clear that there are many other pathways that are affected in this diagnosis.  Some may even change the diagnostic criteria in the future.  In this talk we will look at the pathophysiological changes in frontal lobe dysfunction as well as deficits in other parts of the brain, that defines a great deal of ADHD and its relevant behaviours and co-morbidities. So in short we will how explore how the brain works (or does not work) in children and adults with ADHD.

At least one-third of the world are introverts. Introverts tend to prefer listening to speaking. Popular culture however tends to dramatically undervalue introverts and focus on the extrovert ideal. Research notes that introversion and extroversion are preferences for different levels of stimulation. Introversion requires a change of stance from schools, parents, and the world of work as we recognise that many of the world’s most creative individuals and distinguished leaders are introverts. It is useful to understand and appreciate the qualities of introverts often functioning in an extrovert-dominated culture.

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a lifelong neuro-developmental condition that affects how a person communicates with, relates to other people and engages with the world around them. People with ASD may at times find neurotypical behaviour confusing and baffling.  People with ASD may present with a ‘signature’ language profile.  They may experience deficits in nonverbal communicative behaviours used for social interaction and can present with deficits in developing, maintaining, and understanding relationships. While there are many struggles, there are some gifts. ASD presents the individual with a specific way of being in the world. It is essential for all to gain insight into this pattern of thinking and in turn deepen our understanding and level of meaningful engagement.

Mental health is an essential component of overall wellbeing. Child and adolescent mental health problems are common and associated with a wide range of functional impairment. Psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents affect at least one in ten 5 to17-year olds, with strong persistence and recurrence of these conditions into adulthood.Childhood depression can impose a significant economic burden on children, family and society. Having untreated depression is an independent predictor of poor compliance and clinical outcomes. Therefore, it is essential to increase the awareness of the importance of effective management of both physical and mental disorders in children. The prevention, early recognition and treatment of depression in children is essential to their overall well-being.

This is the evidence-based model Dr. Ross Greene described his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Using Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints. This webinar will explore an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, its refinements over the past 8-10 years, and practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in these diverse settings.
