KennyPresenters: Kenneth J. Sher, PhD, is a Curators’ Distinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He has published extensively on the etiology and course of substance use disorders (particularly alcohol use disorders) in later adolescence and young adulthood, and is the principal investigator on two large longitudinal studies following student drinkers during their college years and beyond. His research is funded by the National Institude of Health, and he has received over 20 awards for his teaching, mentorship, and research activities, including the Research Society on Alcoholism’s Young Investigator Award, Distinguished Researcher Award, and G. Alan Marlatt Mentoring Award, as well as the American Psychological Association’s Division on Addiction’s Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award.

Winograd_photoRachel P. Winograd is a graduate student in clinical psychology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where she studies the acute effects of alcohol intoxication on behavior and emotion and helped establish an evidence-based intervention for heavy drinking college students. She received a National Research Service Award from the National Institute of Health to conduct her dissertation work investigating “drunk personality” and geospatial characteristics of college students’ recent drinking episodes. She is currently completing her predoctoral clinical internship with the VA St Louis Health Care System, where she works with Veterans with health and substance use concerns. Overview: This webinar is exclusively based on the content presented in the book Binge Drinking and Alcohol Misuse Among College Students and Young Adults, written by Rachel Winograd and Kenneth Sher. This book was published by Hogrefe Publishing and is part of an acclaimed series on evidence-based practice in psychotherapy. Hogrefe has published at least 36 volumes in this series, and each is reviewed scrupulously by multiple editors attending to scientific content, usefulness of material, and general structure and format. All the material included in this book is based on published peer-reviewed manuscripts and books on or relating to the topic of alcohol misuse and the treatment of addiction. Objectives: (1) Discuss the epidemiology and course of young adult alcohol misuse in general terms, with particular attention to alcohol misuse on college campuses; (2) Describe the utility of three types of alcohol-related assessment measures: screening tools, consumption measures, and consequence measures and their role in treatment for young adult alcohol misuse; (3) List at least four (of eight) important components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for alcohol misuse. CE Credits Available: 1

Privacy in the Digital Age: Implications for Clinical Practice

ADrummond4Presenter: Dr. Aaron Drummond is a cognitive psychologist with a particular interest in the way that humans and computers interact.  Dr. Drummond’s specific research interests include the psychological effects of digital media use, privacy in the digital age, and the use of technology to aid low intensity CBT interventions for mild to moderate anxiety and depression. Overview: In 2012, privacy breaches exposed the confidential health data of 22.5 million U.S. citizens.  Ensuing the privacy of clients is essential in clinical psychology, and a task that has become increasingly complex as technology has evolved.  Many current professional guidelines for clinical practice do not consider issues pertaining to potential privacy breaches from sources such as human error, malicious acts, metadata, and surveillance (e.g. APA, 2007, APS, 2013, BPS 2011).  By reviewing potential sources of privacy breaches arising from electronic storage and communications use, key areas that might result in privacy breaches are identified – e.g. human error, malicious acts.  We conclude with best practice recommendations regarding electronic storage and communication, software choices, and spyware removal designed to minimize privacy risk in mental health care.  These recommendations need to be regularly reviewed to continue to minimize the risk of privacy-related breaches in the context of ongoing technological development. Objectives: (1) Describe the major sources of electronic privacy breaches (2) Select appropriate electronic communication tools to minimize the risk of electronic privacy breaches; (3) Prepare an action plan to minimize the risk of electronic privacy breaches in clinical practice.
