The Big Green Dinosaur Theory! Understanding and Explaining Trauma



The Big Green Dinosaur Theory is a memorable, story-based explanation that has been very successful in helping clients, especially children, understand the effects of trauma. This continuing education workshop seeks to highlight the neurobiology behind trauma, and subsequent PTSD and ASD symptoms. Participants will benefit from an overview of the stress response system, both from a biological perspective as well as a subjective experiential perspective.

Through the easy to follow Big Green Dinosaur theory, attendees will be presented with a clinical discussion of anxiety symptoms versus formalized trauma. Participants will examine the differential diagnosis of specific trauma disorders including Acute Stress Disorder, PTSD and other anxiety diagnosis such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This class will also include a discussion of newer neurobiology measurement methods, such as SPECT and fMRI scans of pre and post treatment for PTSD using treatment methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. (Trainer Justin Griepentrog, LGSW, Director Compassionate Grace Counseling Center )


1:45- 4:45 Class 2 – Friends, Pokes, and Tweets: Ethical Considerations Online and in Person.

“Do you have children?”, “Are you married?”, “Will you be my friend on Facebook?”  Boundary issues with clients and ethical considerations have only become more complicated in recent years.  With the extent of personal information that is available on the internet, clinicians need to be cautious about what information is available to their clients.

Participants will evaluate appropriate uses of self disclosure by viewing examples of therapy sessions from popular movies and television.  Participants will become knowledgeable of the 10 things clinicians need to know about privacy on the internet and how to protect themselves.  This information will assist clinicians in making ethical decisions related to self disclosure. (Trainer,  Annie Sutton, LCSW-C)
