Lifespan Integration Update Courses on Zoom
The two online courses described below include updates to LI theory and assessment, the recent changes to LI Baseline Protocol, and introduce the new category of LI protocols called “Baseline Pluses”. Qualified therapists can enroll in either course separately, or can enroll in both. Each course offers 5.5 clock hours through NBCC and involves a combination of teaching, live demonstrations of LI protocols, and practicing LI treatment planning using the new LI Assessment Map. A brief description of each course follows.
1. LI Theory and Practice Update
This course will briefly touch on the concepts of complex systems and parallel distributive processing, and will demonstrate how the dynamics of complex systems underlie the mechanism of Lifespan Integration. Participants will learn how to identify 3 types of clients, and the 3 stages of LI therapy. This course introduces how to use the new LI Assessment map to initially assess clients based on the Window of Tolerance and Polyvagal theory. Participants will learn how to use bouncing memory cues and 4-limb activation to subcortically regulate clients during repetitions of Baseline Protocol. A live demonstration of LI Baseline Protocol will be offered.
2. LI Baseline Plus Update
In this course, participants will learn about a new category of protocols called “Baseline Pluses”, and how to safely begin using these “Pluses” in combination with the LI Baseline protocol early in LI treatment and treatment planning. Participants will learn how to choose effective “Pluses” for clients throughout the stages of LI therapy, and will learn the importance of the Baseline Plus “Agreeable/Disagreeable” variation. Participants will have the opportunity to practice choosing “Pluses” for actual cases using the LI Assessment Map. A live demonstration of LI Baseline Plus will be offered.
