Therapists’ Professional Growth and Development
NaMetris Blount, PhD, LPC, NCC, DCC ConnectedPRO, LLC, Pineville, NC
Successful professionals don’t just wait for things to happen for them. They plan it, seek out the opportunities, and actively invest in personal and professional growth. It is common to start your career on one path and later notice that you desire more. It is also common that you find yourself working diligently and the profession around you evolves and you remain the same. So, ask yourself: Twenty years from today, looking back to this moment, what would you like to say about your professional growth and development?.

De-escalate Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime: Unplug the Power Struggle with Principle-Based De-escalation
Steven Seiller, BS, ARM, Service Alternatives Training Institute, Inc., Woodinville, WA
Imagine dealing with any situation. In this introduction to Principle-Based De-escalation, learn 5 surprises and 3 guiding principles that will allow you to remain in control at all times, support anyone, anywhere, with any issue, and avoid the wrong response which can make the situation worse.
Is it really possible to de-escalate anyone, anywhere, anytime? Yes! Imagine yourself dealing with any scenario with anyone, anywhere, with confidence and long-term foresight. This is possible with a principle-based approach to de-escalation.
While no single technique will work on every person, there is a small set of principles that do apply to everyone. These principles are universal so they apply to any age person, any level of ability or disability, and any setting.
If you are new to de-escalation, this overview will introduce the guiding principles that form the basis for today’s professional behavioral interventions and emergency response protocols. If you are experienced, this presentation will serve as a valuable affirmation or even help you fuse together varied, previous trainings into a consistent and potent practice. Attendees will be asked to consider past or future scenarios they encounter in order to apply the learned process and identify needed skills.

“The NADD competency-based clinical certification has provided me with an avenue to verify a dual diagnosis specialty. My ability to provide clinical supports to individuals supported both by medical assistance and private insurances has been expanded by allowing me to gain access to closed insurance networks. These networks had been closed to me prior to receiving this certification, allowing this population to remain largely unserved outside of community mental health centers.”
