Jessica Shepley, PsyD
Director of Child and Adolescent Inpatient Programming
The kids in our care often share an experience of having intense emotions and use a host of behaviors to manage their feelings to the best of their ability. Kids require an emotionally safe environment in order to learn new ways to navigate their world.  Dr. Shepley will review some core features of a trauma informed approach.   Participants will learn 3 specific positive intervention tools to use in their work with kids and parents toward increased emotion regulation.

At the end of this learning event, participants will be able to:     

1. Name 3 positive interventions that can be used in the care of patients.

2. Restate a direction or behavioral limit using positive language (asking for what they want).

Jessica Shepley, PsyD. is a clinical psychologist who joined the Brattleboro Retreat team in 2006.  During her tenure, she has served in clinical and leadership roles across the child and adolescent continuum of care.   Currently, Dr. Shepley is the Director of Child and Adolescent Inpatient Programming, overseeing the implementation of Dialectical Behavior Therpay as evidence based practice, supporting trauma informed milieu management, and engaging in overall program development.
