  • Behavioral Health Seminars for California Psych Professionals

    Positive Behavior Health Education

    Referring to an individual’s state of being and how those behaviors affect choices of overall health and wellness, behavioral health represents a wide spectrum of the human condition. Often interchanged with mental health, our behavioral health seminars are purpose-produced and created specifically for psychologists, social workers, MFTs (Marriage and Family Therapists), nurses, and counselors. Professional Psych Seminars has online and in-person behavioral health seminars for the continuing education for behavioral psychological professionals. As an umbrella term, behavioral health is seen as changeable, allowing clients’ suffering to be empowered for positive change. This can mean prevention, cure, or decrease in symptoms associated with their specific cases. As simple behavior modifications can greatly improve health benefits, psychological health professionals can take advantage of several webinars and seminars to maintain and supplant their mental health knowledge.

    Assisting Women with Addiction from Trauma

    Common issues in this wide-spread term involve eating disorders, porn or sex addictions, gambling or gaming addictions, internet addictions, shopping addictions, and more. For example one of our courses, Women and Addiction: A Trauma-Informed Approach, investigates a comprehensive treatment model –  involving theories of addiction, women’s psych development, and trauma. Taught by Stephanie S. Covington, Ph.D. –  a clinician, organizational consultant, and lecturer – has spent over 25 years focused on the creation of gender-responsive trauma-informed services. Furthermore, she has served as a consultant to the UNDOC (United Nations on Drugs and Crime) and selected for the federal Advisory Council on Women’s Services. Clearly, with such a background, Dr. Covington has the grasp of women’s addiction based in trauma. Through excellent instruction, Dr. Covington will define trauma and gender responsiveness to it. She will also identify three issues faced when accommodating women through recovery and describe three treatments for women with trauma-based addiction.
