Mental Health Training and Presentations
Laura offers a range of presentations and training for therapy organizations and other caregiving related teams or community organizations.
Using DBT for the Treatment of Substance Use
This training highlights how to apply substance use adaptations within the DBT treatment modality.

This presentation is can be tailored for audiences with a range of previous experiences with DBT.

Vulnerability and Validation Workshop
Caregivers of any kind can learn how to respond to others’ emotions. In this training, we highlight how caregivers can lean into their vulnerability to provide better emotional support to the children they nurture. We discuss the reasons why this is so important, the three most common thinking traps adults fall into, and how-to strategies to help your kids’ emotions. This presentation is perfect for therapists, parents and grandparents, teachers and educators, school administrators, babysitters, mentors, and more. Depending on the ages you care for, we can tailor our discussion to meet the needs of school-age children, teens, and young adults.
Length: 1-3 hours depending on your needs
Mindfulness Practice For Kids
Maybe, you’ve heard about the latest mental health and self-care trend: mindfulness. And, you want to know more about what it is and why everyone is practicing it. In this training, we will define mindfulness and why people of all ages are using it. Then, we’ll learn how to apply mindfulness strategies to any child in order to help them reduce stress and anxiety and increase joy. Specifically, we’ll talk about how it can help those who struggle with emotional and/or behavioral vulnerabilities.
Length: 1 hour
Behavior Modification For Kids
Creating age-appropriate boundaries and limits can be one of the most difficult challenges of parenting. Finding the balance between “too loose” and “too strict” is tricky. So, in this conversation, we will discuss these challenges and learn about ways to improve these skills in order to promote healthy development.
Length: 1-2 hours depending on your needs
