Anxiety: Understanding Polyvagal Theory -Dr Natalie Solomon

Earn 3 HPCSA points by viewing this fascinating talk online: www.bellavistashareonline.org.za

The Polyvagal Theory is the product of decades of research by Stephen Porges. Through this lens we see the role of the autonomic nervous system as it shapes experiences of safety and affects our ability for connection. It provides a neurobiological framework for understanding the connection between the mind, body, and emotions. Polyvagal Theory provides a neurophysiological framework to consider the reasons why people act in the ways they do.

S.H.A.R.E. Online seeks to extend the work of Bellavista S.H.A.R.E. by making continuous professional development opportunities available to practitioners working throughout Southern Africa.

With the launch of our online training website, we are delighted to bring our content directly to your staffroom, office or living room, without the loss of valuable teaching or therapy contact time.

Expert mentors will guide and support your learning as you navigate our longer courses, while a quick quiz at the end of a short talk will check your understanding and enable you to earn HPCSA or SACE CPD points with ease.

We look forward to welcoming you online soon!

SAMLA Training Programme for 2019 – 2020

Are you (or would you like to be) a Medico-Legal Practitioner?

SAMLA Training Programme for 2019 – 2020. Information about the eagerly awaited second and third sections of the SAMLA training in Medico-legal Practice – The Practical Workshops.

The 10 practical workshops follow on the theoretical underpinning in the Foundations Course in Medico-Legal Practice and Ethics presented during 2018.

The new training format: In order for SAMLA to present its training to our members all over the country and to get maximum CPD points, the next two levels of training will be presented as a series of workshops rather than year-long courses – 5 workshops in 2019 and 5 in 2020. Each year will build on the skills and experience developed during the previous year.

There will be live presentations in 5 venues (instructions and discussion) as well as practical work to be done in syndicates.

Syndicates will be licensed so that participants can communicate online with each other to work on their assignments.

Who is eligible?

  • The 2019 training is open to all interested persons, whether-or-not you did the 2018 training.
  • To qualify for the 2020 workshops, you will have had to complete both the 2018 and 2019 courses satisfactorily.  But, here’s the good news – The 2018 Foundations Course will soon be available as an e-course, so for those who missed the boat the first time, all’s not lost.

Benefits of this format:

  • Opportunity to catch up – those who want to do the 2020 training (but missed the 2018 Foundations Course), will have the opportunity to catch up by completing the Foundations Course during 2019 as an online course
  • Maximum CPD points – the total number of points for the workshops done separately will be considerably more than if the training is presented as a single course.
  • You can obtain a certificate of completion for the whole course by completing all the workshops in each of the following two years.
  • Persons interested in specific workshops only, may do so in 2019. They will receive CPD points and a certificate of attendance per workshop.
  • More payment options (and perhaps kinder on the budget). You can pay per workshop and do not have to find the full course fee upfront.

Provisional Costs:  26 January R2 500 (incl Vat)
2-day workshops R5 250 (incl Vat)
3-day workshops R7 850 (incl Vat)

Discounts will apply to SAMLA members and for those who pay for all 6 of the 2019 events upfront.

At present the costs are provisional, the current estimate is based on a minimum registration of 220 participants.

So, we need your help please:

  1. As you may appreciate, the organisation with many “moving parts” is quite a challenge. In order to secure venues and technicians; to complete the arrangements timeously and to be able to present the training at competitive rates, we need confirmed interest from at least 220 participants for the full year or 2019 Workshops.
  2. Save the dates.

WAIS-IV(SA) Scoring and case studies

Organised by JvR Academy

The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales has undergone various adaptations over the years. The latest version, the WAIS-IV has recently been standardised for the South African population. The purpose of this one-day workshop is to discuss the structure of the assessment and the research that was done to create South African norms. Basic principles in the administration and scoring of the instrument will be discussed and practiced. Workshop participants will gain further insight into what the test measures, and how to interpret the scores by means of in-depth case study discussions. Although participants will have the opportunity to apply their own knowledge and skills when interpreting the profiles of these cases, interpretation guidelines will be provided and handouts will help to facilitate the process.

At the end of this workshop, delegates will be able to:
  1. Briefly discuss the history of the WAIS instrument and its structure
  2. Refer to the standardisation process in South Africa
  3. Cite South African research
  4. Have an understanding of how to administer the WAIS-IV SA
  5. Have an understanding of how to score the WAIS-IV SA
  6. Interpret the test results by using two case studies.
