Simplifying Complex PTSD: Definition, Measurement and Clinical Utility

Presenter: Dr. Marylene Cloitre is the Associate Director of Research of the National Center for PTSD Dissemination and Training Division at the Palo Alto VA Health Care Services and Clinical Professor (affiliate) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. Her research and clinical work for the past 20 years has focused on the long-term effects of chronic trauma on social and emotional functioning. She is past-president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) and was a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) ICD-11 working group on trauma-spectrum disorders. Overview: The credibility of the Complex PTSD diagnoses as recently proposed for the ICD-11 is supported by a growing empirical literature that includes the presence of distinct populations in adults, adolescents, and children that manifest Complex PTSD as compared to PTSD symptom profiles. Complex PTSD populations are now known to be distinct from Borderline Personality Disorder populations with contrasting clinical features. The development of valid and reliable measurement of Complex PTSD is advancing. Objectives: (1) Describe the differences between the ICD-11 definition of PTSD versus Complex PTSD. (2) Describe the types of trauma that create risk for Complex PTSD as compared to PTSD. (3) Recognize differences between Complex PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder presentations. 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
