Eating Disorders: Exploring Evidence Supported Treatments

ID: 5296

The eating disorder treatment landscape … has changed dramatically over the past 20 years” (Attia et al., 2017). Indeed, evidence supported treatments (ESTs) reveal promising results for clients with disordered eating behaviors (DEB) and related mental health problems. Yet, despite the development and availability of treatments relevant to eating disorders a critical gap exists between these treatments and their integration into clinical practice. To address this gap, this course will inform clinicians about recent developments concerning what works and for whom. A broad range of treatment interventions " their plusses and minuses" will be examined. These include CBT modified specifically for ED clients (CBT-ED), treatments that increase self-compassion, reduce body image shame, guided self-help approaches (e.g. CBT-gsh), plus other evidence supported strategies (e.g. pendulation, somatic experiencing and EFT).

Ethics and Risk Management for Online and Distance Social Work: Best Practices

ID: 1002WEB

Online and distance social work has quickly come of age. It is important to adopt best practices to work online in an ethical and effect way. For some social workers, remote delivery of services reaches clients who live long distances from their office or who’s special needs limit their ability to travel. For other social workers, online and distance social work has become a sudden necessity because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is essential for social workers to keep pace with rapidly evolving ethical and legal standards governing online and distance practice. This webinar will provide an up-to-the-minute overview of prevailing standards in social work. Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss recent technology-related updates to the NASW Code of Ethics; new technology standards adopted jointly by the NASW, ASWB, CSWE, and Clinical Social Work Association; and relevant laws.

Principles of Differential Diagnoses in Adolescents

ID: 5651WEB

Diagnosing mental disorders in adolescents can pose special difficulties. The clinical presentations of certain important disorders can differ from what is typical in adulthood and be harder to differentiate from normative development. At the same time, factors that complicate diagnosing adults--for example, the effects of medical problems or substance abuse-also complicate diagnosing adolescents. Further, particular medical and psychological interventions impact adolescents differently than adults. This comprehensive two-day workshop will review current knowledge about how selected mental disorders (mood disorders, disruptive behavior disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, early onset schizophrenia, and others) should be diagnosed in adolescence. The webinar focuses on diagnosis, not treatment techniques; research on the efficacy of current treatments for adolescents will be reviewed when relevant.

The Therapeutic Dance: Keeping One Eye on the Client and One Eye on Ourselves

ID: 1015WEB

As the pandemic continues and helping professionals experience their own trauma and the cumulative trauma of the clients they serve, it is more important than ever to become aware of how our own experiences and traumas affect our relationships with clients. This webinar will provide a review of attachment theory and the prevalence of traumatic transference when working with trauma survivors. Participants will have the opportunity to examine how their own attachment style affects their approach with clients. The concepts of empathic disequilibrium, empathic withdrawal, empathic enmeshment and empathic repression will be reviewed and discussed. Strategies for promoting self-awareness and self-care will be presented. When we do not care for ourselves or keep an eye on the therapeutic dance with clients, the likelihood of burnout, vicarious traumatization and empathic strain are real dangers for the health and well -being of the helper and the therapeutic relationship.

Working with Substance Abuse Risk Factors and Male Survivor of Sexual Violence

ID: 4208WEB

Sexual violence is a serious problem that affects millions of people every year. Sexual violence is any sexual act that is forced against someone’s will and covers a broad range including and not limited to harassment, cyberspace/internet abuse, stalking, interpersonal violence, molestation, incest, rape and murder. This workshop will address how incidents of male sexual assault continue to be under reported and the after effects of abuse minimized and or not disclosed in the histories of male clients. Additionally the trauma of sexual assault may more than double the risk of substance abuse for survivors. Individuals with a history of sexual trauma need to receive treatment in a safe and supportive environment that is trauma sensitive. Through lecture, case study and group discussion participants will gain a better understanding on how to create a safe environment for men with a history of trauma, identify treatment issues specific to male clients, learn how to assist clients in early recovery, and when to make appropriate referrals.
