Working Smarter, Not Harder: Evidence Based Assessment in Clinical Practice

Presenter: Eric Youngstrom, PhD

EricYoungstromOverview. This webinar will be conducted as something of a detective story. As clinicians we are often presented with clients who may come across at different moments as depressed, hopeful, anxious, giddy, shut-down, fearful, flat, or agitated. How we assess our clients guides our treatment plan. Working effectively with PTSD, for example, would differ from our approach to treating an individual with social anxiety or depression. Yet even experienced clinicians do not always see eye-to-eye on diagnosis. In this webinar, Eric Youngstrom illustrates the process of differential diagnosis by inviting us to engage in his gradually unfolding and transparent assessment of a particularly challenging case study. Objectives. Participants will gain skills in differentiating between different types of mood disorders, why this matters, as well as gaining in familiarity with relevant evidence based assessment tools and methods.

Using Behavioral Activation Treatment to Treat Perinatal Mood Disorders

JackieGollanPresenter: Jacqueline Gollan, PhD (more detail to come)

Overview. The biopsychosocial changes evident during pregnancy and postpartum are associated with an increased risk for depression and treatment requires effective, gender-sensitive psychotherapy practices. Behavioral Activation (BA) treatment has shown to be an effective treatment for perinatal depression. The BA model proposes that depression is generated and maintained via exposure to aversive situations, lost or disrupted routines, and decreased access to positive activities and thus the aims of treatment are to increase access to potential sources of positive reinforcement, recognize routine disruptions and avoidance patterns, and modify skill deficits. Objectives. (1) Describe the BA model of illness and treatment; (2) Summarize common clinical challenges in perinatal depression; (3) Describe specific treatment techniques; (4) Outline how to measure mechanisms of productive therapeutic change, and (5) Guide you on next steps towards achieving competency and adherence in BA.

Geriatric Primary Care: Psychologists’ Roles on the Interprofessional Team

Official 8x10 300 dpiPresenter: Antonette Zeiss, PhD

Overview. This webinar will provide an overview of the interprofessional model of care and its application in geriatric primary care. We will review an IOM report on the inadequate number of mental health professionals trained to provide evidence based care to older adults (reference #4, IOM 2012), and then emphasize the opportunity for psychology in integrated care settings. We will cover core competencies for work with older adults in these settings.  Finally, depression will be used as an example of interprofessional team work in geriatric primary care, with a special focus on behavioral activation strategies and how they can fit into the entire team’s work. Objectives. Participants will be able to: (1) Define the delivery of geriatric primary care using the interprofessional team approach; (2) Explain the insufficient availability of geriatric mental health workers, including psychologists, as defined by IOM and to identify potential approaches for increasing appropriately trained providers; (3) Describe ways in which depression in older adults can be addressed by a team working in a coordinated approach, with particular emphasis on behavioral activation strategies.

Uncovering clinical principles and techniques to address minority stress, mental health, and related health risks among gay and bisexual men.

pachankis-face-1Presenter: John Pachankis, PhD – Dr. Pachankis is an Associate Professor of Chronic Disease Epidemiology (Social and Behavioral Sciences division) at the Yale School of Public Health. Overview. Clear and consistent evidence suggests that gay and bisexual men are significantly more likely to experience depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders compared to heterosexual men and that these sexual orientation mental health disparities are explained by the disproportionate stigma-related stress experienced by gay and bisexual men. 21 expert mental health providers and 20 gay and bisexual men with depression and anxiety provided input into the translation of these above findings into the first evidence-based treatment package to reduce depression, anxiety, and related health conditions by reducing the processes through which minority stress impairs the mental and physical health of this population. Objectives. Participants will be able to (1) utilize therapeutic principles and techniques to adapt standard cognitive-behavioral approaches to specifically address the stigma-related stress faced by gay and bisexual men across development and (2) conceptualize clinical cases involving gay and bisexual men with attention to the psychosocial mechanisms through which minority stress adversely affects mental health.

Promoting Psychological Health after Cancer Treatment

Presenter: Jennifer Moye, PhD

Moye head shotOverview. This webinar reflects the growing field of cancer survivorship clinical practice and research, and emerging policy standards. It is estimated there are 14 million cancer survivors in the United States. Cancer survivors are susceptible to a plethora of complications associated with cancer and its treatment including cancer-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and fears of recurrence.   Long term psychological effects have been variably attributed to social isolation during treatment and closeness to death; these may be exacerbated by pre-existing PTSD, medications (e.g., steroids) and radiation therapy, especially if targeted to the central nervous system. Objectives. Participants will be able to (1) list the prevalence of cancer related PTSD, cancer related worry, and major depressive disorder in cancer survivors, (2) describe the relationship between age and psychosocial distress after cancer treatment, and (3) name two domains in which cancer survivors may describe stress related growth.

Evaluation of Emotion, Personality, and Internal Models of External Reality: Implications for psychological Intervention

ALLANHARKNESSl_2015Presenter: Allan Harkness, PhD – Dr. Harkness received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota (Clinical Psychology) in 1989. He is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Institute for Biochemical and Psychological Study of Individual Differences at the University of Tulsa, in Tulsa, OK. Overview. Adaptive function has provided a key to understanding cognitive and emotional psychological capacities, from the time that functionalism was a major school of psychology. Throughout the history of research psychology, a series of problems and issues have continually resurfaced, relating to five major functions in adapting to the external environment (Harkness, Reynolds, & Lilienfeld, 2014). This Webinar will link these functions to major themes in personality and psychopathology. Recognizing the adaptive functions behind cognition, emotional, and personality brings functionalism to psychopathology, allowing a critical change in perspective that can inform treatment planning. Objectives. Participants will (1) learn to identify five major functions of adapting to external reality that have been major topics in psychological research throughout the history of the field and (2) be able to identify the connections between the major adaptive functions and various forms of psychopathology for case conceptualization.
