Animations, Power Points, and Interactive Strategies for Play-Based telehealth and On-Site Sessions

ID: 1011WEB

The advent of social distancing required clinicians who worked with families and children/young adolescents to quickly improvise when switching to a telehealth setting. Therapists had to either completely re-think or modify what they had been doing and what had been working on-site with little preparation, and few resources to guide them. This workshop will attempt to provide an additional resource for those looking for ideas to strengthen the telehealth process and in doing so find additional strategies they can bring to the office. In this webinar, participants will be able to see, through live demonstration, how sharing short animations, videos, and interactive power points as well as other collaborative activities can facilitate the goals of therapy. These activities work well in a telehealth setting but can also be brought on site. Examples of goals will come from the presenter’s own experience and will include emotional regulation, feelings expression, managing anxiety, improving self-esteem, and developing social skills. The types of interventions presented are designed for the less talkative, often distracted child, with low motivation for therapy. The ideas presented will often require the therapist to be able to share their computer screen and limited technical tips will be provided. It is hoped participants can use this workshop as a “jumping off point” to inspire them to create their own interventions. Online resources will be provided for further study.

Assessing and Identifying Eating Disorders: What you Need to Know

ID: 5216WEB

Eating disorders are one of the most complex and difficult problems to treat. While relatively common, they in fact have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric illness. Most clinicians miss opportunities to be a resource and advocate for change for this very vulnerable population. Worse, a high percentage of eating disorders are not properly identified or treated because well-intentioned helpers have their own bias and stigma about weight and health. This webinar is designed for the professional with little to no experience in eating disorders. Through the material presented, and then a clinical vignette, participants have an opportunity to learn and apply the basic clinical foundations in the assessment and identification of eating disorders as well as begin to expand their knowledge base about eating disorders.

Once thought to be a rare psychiatric illness, obsessive-compulsive disorder is now recognized to be quite common as 2-3 million Americans are believed to have it.

Binge Eating Disorder: Assessment and Disorder

ID: 5295WEB

Of all the eating disorders, binge eating disorder (BED) is one of the most common. Unfortunately, many people that present with this disorder are misdiagnosed and often don't receive appropriate treatment. This is due in part to misconceptions about the disorder itself, and also the attitude of some well-intentioned professionals in helping spaces. This webinar provides basic tools to assess binge eating, explores how binge eating differs from "food addiction", and outlines common treatment modalities. Other topics that will be touched upon include the roles of dieting, neuropsychology, and stress reactivity. Resources will be provided so that helpers can leave feeling more confident in helping those with BED. This is a survey level introductory workshop, although all are welcome to attend.

Eating Disorders and Childhood Abuse: Connecting the Dots!

ID: 5207

Remarkable research findings reveal that a majority of adult women with serious eating problems (EP) have a history of childhood abuse. Perhaps more surprising is that the abuse is primarily emotional, rather than sexual or physical (i.e. behavioral). Despite childhood emotional abuse (CEA) being most clearly associated with eating pathology later in life, professional attention tends to focus mainly on behavioral abuse. This workshop shifts the focus to highlight CEA and its role, along with psychological factors, in the development and maintenance of EP in adulthood. Participants will be able to connect the dots between various forms of childhood abuse and current eating problems. There also is an opportunity to examine innovative approaches for addressing the CEA-EP relationship, including the often neglected role of self-criticism and unresolved anger.

Eating Disorders and Recovery: Highlighting Spiritual Practices

ID: 5233

Women with disordered eating behaviors (DEB) often describe their (mis)use of food as a way of providing comfort, filling a void or a healing “hole in the soul”. Emerging treatment strategies are focusing on spiritual growth. What do we mean by spiritual growth, why is it essential to recovery, and how can we help our clients grow spiritually? This workshop introduces a “healing circle”, a safe and nurturing environment in which we examine (a) the meanings of recovery and (b) the role of spiritual practices�"often neglected, but potentially powerful treatment resources. Sustainable recovery depends on spiritual practices which contribute to healing the “hole in the soul”. Ample opportunity is provided for participants to learn about and experience emerging spiritual practices while deepening an appreciation for how these practices nurture and contribute to on-going recovery.

Eating Disorders: Highlights and Relevant Clinical Issues

ID: 5206

In contrast to traditional treatment that views eating disorders as the problem, an atypical approach is taken in this workshop. Specifically, eating disorder (ED) and disordered eating behaviors (DEB) often begin as (misguided) attempts to handle or in some cases survive overwhelming emotional situations, including childhood abuse and trauma. As you might suspect, this perspective requires not only a shift in understanding, but also innovative and more relevant treatment strategies. Emerging research is presented together with recent findings about the significant roles of self-criticism and unresolved anger. Assessment tools are provided along with untraditional treatment strategies that clinicians may find especially relevant for adult female clients.

Positive Psychology for Clinical Practice

ID: 5085

This workshop will explore the rapidly growing and exciting field of Positive Psychology. In the past we have focused on what is wrong and not working in our lives. Positive Psychology is the scientific study of well-being and optimal functioning. It is a strengths-based approach to mental health which uses coaching as a process. This practical science can be applied to help people increase their well-being, build resiliency, learn their strengths and enhance their overall life satisfaction. Positive Psychology interventions can help clients alleviate and prevent mild to moderate depression and help people bounce back from adversity and feel happier. Teaching happiness skills to clients will improve their physical and emotional health. Our own personal happiness is a vital key to how effective we are as clinicians and health care practitioners. We know that happiness is also one of the most effective health interventions.

This workshop provides an introduction to an integrated, evidence-based model of treating and managing suicidal risk in adult clients. Recent changes in suicide rates and demographics, as well as significantly limited hospital stays have led to the need for more clinicians to develop the necessary competencies to effectively treat and manage suicidal risk on an outpatient basis. This workshop will be divided into three primary sections: 1) competent assessment of suicidal risk based on current research and conceptualizations; 2) examination and application of an integrated model of intervention, based upon three evidence-based models; and 3) management of acute suicide risk as well as chronic suicidality, including clinician self-awareness and wellness.
