Is Cognitive Therapy Enduring or are Antidepressant Medications Iatrogenic?

hollonPresenter: Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at Vanderbilt University.  He received his doctorate from the Florida State University in 1977 with an internship with Aaron Beck at the University of Pennsylvania before joining the faculty at the University of Minnesota.  His research focuses on the nature and treatment of depression.  He has over 250 publications and has placed numerous students in both academic and clinical research positions.  He is past president of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and current president of the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology. He is the recipient of the George A. Miller Award for Outstanding Article from the American Psychology Association (APA), a Distinguished Scientist Award from the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology, and Awards for Distinguished Scientific Contribution and Distinguished Professional Contribution to Clinical Psychology from the Society of Clinical Psychology (Division 12) of the APA. A former director of clinical training, he maintains an active clinical practice in the context of his research program. Overview: Dr. Hollon’s presentation will be based on a series of randomized controlled trials comparing cognitive therapy vs. medications and animal literature examining medication effects. Objectives: (1) Participants will learn that cognitive therapy appears to have an enduring effect that reduces risk for relapse following treatment termination; (2) Participants will learn that combining medication with cognitive therapy may undermine the latter’s enduring effect; (3) Participants will learn that antidepressant medications may inhibit spontaneous remission and leave patients at elevated risk for relapse at any point that they try to discontinue medications. CE Credits Available: 1

Binge Drinking and Alcohol Misuse Among College Students and Young Adults

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.

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
