The Body Keeps the Score

June 24, 2015
12:30-1:30pm EST
1 CE: $29 members; $49 nonmembers

If you are looking for proven alternatives to traditional treatments—and new ways for survivors of trauma to reclaim their lives—this webinar is for you.  Join Dr. Bessel van der Kolk for a lively discussion of his 2014 book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma. Does traumatic stress rearrange the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust? Dr. Bessel van der Kolk believes it does. He also believes these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, and yoga. 

Bessel A. van der Kolk,  M.D. is an internationally recognized leader in the field of psychological trauma. He has been active as a clinician, researcher, and teacher in the area of posttraumatic stress and related phenomena since the 1970s. Dr. van der Kolk is past President of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School, and Medical Director of the Trauma Center at JRI in Brookline, Massachusetts. He has taught at universities and hospitals across the United States and around the world, including Europe, Africa, Russia, Australia, Israel, and China. His work integrates developmental, biological, psychodynamic, and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics replaces the 2005 edition.  The new edition is the first code that speaks to the ethics of using social media with clients.  It also presents new or expanded guidelines for preventing the imposition of counselor personal values, distance counseling, confidentiality, dual relationships, multiculturalism and diversity, the use of technology, recordkeeping, diagnosis, end-of life care and the selection of interventions.

The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics is posted on the ethics section of the ACA website atwww.counseling.org/ethics

Conference attendees can be the first to hear about the new code by attending the six-hour Learning Institute, “Hot Off the Press – The New 2014 ACA Code of Ethics: An In-Depth Review of Critical Changes.” on Thursday or the 90 minute education session, “A Town Hall Meeting on the New 2014 Code of Ethics: What You Need to Know” scheduled for Saturday from 10:00am-11:30am.

A podcast speaking to updates in the 2014 ethics code with Perry Francis, Chair of the Ethics Revision Task Force, is available at www.counseling.org/knowledge-center/podcasts.

Additional resources focusing on the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics coming online include a six-part webinar series, a ten-part interview series with the Ethics Revision Task Force, updated ACA books such as the bestselling ethics casebook, and branch presentations.
