This section has guides about how to participate in the webinar series.
Here are a few directions and a video.
1. Schedule updates due to daylight-savings
2. If you want CE credit, post your name to the live session through the chat window.
3. How to watch the live webinar
4. Participation tips — sharing your cam, staying muted, asking questions, using pseudonyms.
5. How to watch the recordings.
1. Schedule of Live Sessions
If you are participating from Australia, the live webinar will begin at 9 a.m. in your time zone (AEDT). If you are in the Eastern Time Zone in the U.S., the first three sessions begin at 6pm. In November, the U.S. goes into daylight savings, so the time of the webinar will change for us — it will start earlier. But again, the australasian time remains the same.
The Schedule on the trainingtrauma.org website has the correct times. Note that some menu items have drop-downs and are themselves clickable links, too. “Schedule” is one of those; so is “Course.” Try it!
If your time zone is not represented, you can find out what time it will begin where you are by looking at this website (change the date as needed): https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meetingtime.html?iso=20181028&p1=43&p2=152
2. CE Credit
For folks who intend to apply for CE credit, you must show that you are present for each live online session.
Getting CE credit for this course is only possible for those who have been joining us from the first live session. To let us know you are present for each live session, you must post either your legal name or your website username (as it is shown on the https://trainingtrauma.org website) in the gotomeeting console chat window.
If you can’t recall your username, you can find it by logging in to the site. You can use your email address to reset your password if necessary, using the lost password utility. If you have forgotten what email you used, then email me — i can look it up for you. Once logged in, your username is in your account profile. See the video below for how to find it.
If you miss a live session, sorry, but you will not receive any credit for any of them.
Just to make sure it’s clear:
“In order to receive Continuing Education credit, you must sign-in and attend all 8 live sessions – and complete and submit the online Evaluation you will receive following the course.”
3. Watching the Live Webinar Course.
A little beforehand, log into your account on the website trainingtrauma.org. If you have forgotten your login credentials, use the lost password utility. If you can’t remember your username, use the email address you gave when you created an account. If you have forgotten what email you used, then email me — i can look it up for you. The link is available now, if you want to check it out — though there is no meeting happening yet of course. But I gently suggest you make sure this all works for you before the webinar actually begins!
If you haven’t used this “gotomeeting” interface before you will likely need to download and install the program. Follow the directions. If nothing is happening, try minimizing your browser to see if there is a dialog box behind it.
For this first live session, I’ve arranged for Quincy and Sylvia, two of our senior EEGer tech support folks, to be available if there are issues.
If you have difficulty connecting, you have several choices. You can call us 1 (888)-521-9803 — if you get an answering machine it’s because so many calls are coming at once. Please leave your number and we’ll call you back.
Or send us an email to email@example.com. Please include the best phone number to call you.
Remember, the session will be recorded, and the recording will come out in about a week.
4. Participation Tips
Please keep your microphone muted when you join to keep ambient noises down. If you are connecting by phone, press *6 to mute yourself.
At the right, as shown in the video, the camera icon allows you to share your webcam. Sharing your webcam makes for a more personable experience for everyone the live portion. For the recordings, the only webcam that will be shown is Sebern’s. So please join us!
There will be time for some Q&A after some of the sessions. As this is a formal course with a lot of material, and not a mentoring conversation as such, please email me your questions. That way, given our time constraints, Sebern and I can choose the most representative questions.
Finally, a note about confidentiality. We make every effort to ensure that what you share in our webinars remains confidential, password-protected and so on. And yet, we are using electronic technology after all. For the secure confidentiality of your clients, we recommend you refer to them by pseudonyms if you talk about any case histories in the Q & A.
5. Watching the Recordings.
Log into your account. Click the menu item called Course > Video. Videos will remain accessible there for 30 days.
We try to be efficient and speedy getting the recordings posted. With our best effort, it can sometimes take up to a week for the recording to be produced and posted. Please be patient.
