Based on the (included) book: Greenwald, R. (2009). Treating Problem Behaviors: A Trauma-Informed Approach. New York: Routledge.

Description: Treating Problem Behaviors teaches a clear rationale and a systematic approach to trauma-informed treatment for teens (and others) with problem behaviors - including anger, aggression, crime, school/work failure, domestic violence, child abuse, and substance abuse. The content and methods are research-supported and proven effective. The book takes the reader step by step through the treatment process, using scripted exercises to teach hands-on skills. An entire course of treatment is transcribed verbatim to illustrate the treatment approach.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to:

  • Explain how past trauma or loss can lead to ongoing problem behaviors.
  • Engage resistant clients in treatment.
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive trauma-informed treatment plan.
  • Guide clients to become more stable and secure.
  • Teach clients how to control their anger, impulsive/acting-out behavior, and other problem behavior symptoms.
  • Help clients with low affect tolerance to work through their trauma/loss memories.
  • Help clients to anticipate and prepare for future challenges.
