By law, all professionals are required to report child abuse and abuse of children and adults with disabilities. Keeping an ethical frame with outside/ additional intrusions on client confidentiality is a complex process and causes a great deal of anxiety in the practitioner, particularly in a system that is often very hard to navigate. This course will equip the practitioner with the relevant legislation, protocol for investigation and the various ages of consent that come into play when having to report abuse.

Anxiety is a normal and self-protective emotional response. Unfortunately, we have become over-sensitized to life stressors, and an emotion that was meant to keep us safe has now become one that is detrimental to our well-being.

When a person regularly feels disproportionate levels of anxiety, it becomes a disorder. This workshop aims to unpack what an anxiety disorder is. It will explore its various manifestations, which include both behavioural and physiological symptomatology. The workshop will explore how anxiety can significantly impact all areas of one's life: social functioning, academic performance, and cognitive development. If left untreated, anxiety manifestations can follow into adulthood, leading to other functioning impairments. While anxiety is a combination of genetics, temperament, and environmental experiences, there is additionally a correlation between anxious children and anxious parents. In attempting to gain a greater understanding of a parent's effect on their child's anxiety, it is important to look at the distinct parenting styles that may contribute to the maintenance and exacerbation of anxiety. Anxiety cannot always be avoided, but it can be reduced. We explore therapeutic interventions that place emphasis on emotional acceptance, psychological flexibility, self-regulation and mindfulness. Lastly, the workshop will explore medication as an intervention when necessary.

Both anxiety and working memory difficulties are commonly identified among children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties; and for children who have not received appropriate support, working memory difficulties may be compounded by high levels of anxiety. This short course takes on the format of a presentation and a journal article, and will explore the relationship between working memory and anxiety, how both working memory and anxiety can affect children with reading difficulties, in particular, and then discuss practical ways of supporting working memory and anxiety in children.

The Polyvagal Theory is the product of decades of research by Stephen Porges. Through this lens we see the role of the autonomic nervous system as it shapes experiences of safety and affects our ability for connection. It provides a neurobiological framework for understanding the connection between the mind, body, and emotions. Polyvagal Theory gives therapists, teachers and parents a neurophysiological framework to consider the reasons why people act in the ways they do.

In the 21st century, most of us function in a highly technical environment, with the support of the latest smartphones, tablets and computers. We rely heavily on electronics to keep ourselves scheduled, organized and at the forefront of changing technology. Can this replace the capacity of our working memory or do we still need to enhance our brain’s executive functions, including working memory? With the advancement in knowledge, there will be an overwhelming cognitive burden of storing so much information in our heads. Dr. Moonsamy will explore how we can harness the capacity of our working memory in order to make it an efficient instrument to support learning and everyday functioning.
