This presentation proposes the need and approaches of performing an in-depth Trauma Informed-School Neuropsychological Assessment (TI-SNP) to address the degree of issues globally surrounding adolescent Substance Use Disorder (SUD). We will explore the (TI-SNP) Assessment Model by reviewing several definitions on Trauma and PTSD. We will explore the impact of Trauma on brain involving the function of stress related changes that can impact adequate limbic system and neurotransmitter functioning.
We will discuss the neurodevelopmental consequences and school neuropsychological implications of Trauma and Traumatic Stress, with an overview of how Trauma impacts memory and learning along with social-emotional adjustment. Overall, the (TI-SNP) assessment findings will help conceptualize accommodations and/or modification plans within a home, school, and clinical setting, all working in cohort as the stakeholders of quality care.
As an outgrowth of the Trauma Informed-School Neuropsychological Assessment (TI-SNP) data, we will explore websites and resources that may provide helpful interventions globally leading to promoting health and wellness with adolescent coping with an on-going recovery process involving Substance Use Disorder (SUD). The outgrowth of the (TI-SNP) assessment is to foster a solid partnership between the stake-holders treating adolescents needs resulting in a healthy paramount of care.
After completing the presentation, professionals will be able to:
• Review a Trauma Informed-School Neuropsychological Assessment Model (TI-SNP) to guide more effective assessment and treatment interventions.
• How to conduct a (TI-SNP) Assessment and what areas of brain & behavior needs to be to assessed for adequate care.
• Explain the assessment information to assist families, as well as mental health and medical professionals, to understanding SUD adolescent level of care with effective Trauma accommodations and modifications for ongoing treatment.
Audience Take Away:
• The audience will learn about a Trauma Informed-School Neuropsychological Assessment Model (TI-SNP) to assess the brainbehavioral impact involving adolescent Substance Use Disorder (SUD)
• The information learned will assist the professional to have a neurobehavioral approach to suggest interventions for compliance of care between the SUD adolescent and other stakeholders
• The Trauma Informed-School Neuropsychological Assessment Model (TI-SNP) approach will provide practical accommodations and/or modifications to assist the SUD adolescent and all involved with establishing a realistic picture of educational and psycho-social care
