Having supervised graduate students, post-doctoral clinicians and psychiatric residents, he strives to make theory and research accessible to the everyday practice of clinical supervision. Overview: This webinar presents competency-based clinical supervision as integral to the training and implementation of evidence-based practice.  The approach is consistent with the foundational principles of competency-based education and training in which competencies are articulated and systematically assessed (rather than presumed).  As evidence based practices have been adopted a first step has been taken to ensure that the models have been implemented as they were designed, intended, and supported by evidence— with fidelity.  Supervision has been included as one of the components of implementation and as a mechanism to ensure fidelity; however, full consideration of the component parts of supervision have been largely omitted from discussion and as a result have not been part of the adoption roll-out of evidence-based practices.  Increasingly researchers have become aware of this omission and are discussing next steps to ensure the supervision process is integral to the treatment and is in keeping with the parameters of the model.  Discussion will also focus on movement from strictly fidelity-based supervision to competency-based supervision, advancing competence through deliberate practice, and specific examples in which researchers have identified costs associated with less systematic supervision practice. Objectives: (1) Describe the role of clinical supervision in the training and implementation of evidence-based treatments; (2) Describe two major features of competency-based clinical supervision; (3) Identify three parts of the learning cycle employed in competency-based clinical supervision CE Credits Available: 1

Teaching Clients with Bipolar Disorder to Self-Monitor for Symptoms and Triggers

Presenter: Sheri L. Johnson, Ph.D., Dr. Johnson is a professor at the University of California Berkeley, where she runs the Cal Mania (CALM) Program.  She has conducted research on bipolar disorder over the past 20 years, with funding from the National Alliance from Schizophrenia and Depression and the National Institute of Mental Health.  She is the current president of the Society for Research in Psychopathology.  She has published over 200 manuscripts, and is a co-author of a leading textbook on abnormal psychology as well as several books on bipolar disorder. Overview: This program will cover basic psychoeducational techniques that are core to many different empirically supported approaches to bipolar disorder.  A growing body of research indicates that psychosocial treatments, including CBT, can reduce the rate of relapse, lower symptoms, decrease hospitalizations, and improve quality of life among those diagnosed with bipolar disorder when offered as an adjunct to medication.  Techniques described here are commonly employed in CBT.  The triggers will be summarized based on a large literature focused on psychosocial predictors of symptom change within bipolar disorder.  Objectives: (1) Learn about different ways to help clients develop their own monitoring systems; (2) Use a variety of computerized or paper approaches to personalized monitoring; (3) Be familiar with the most common triggers of manic and depressive symptoms within bipolar disorder. CE Credits Available: 1
