"Turning Intentions into Actions": CBT for Adult ADHD (3 CEs)
Presenter: J. Russell Ramsay, Ph.D.
$69.00
6/1/2022 12:00 PM - 3:15 PM EST

“This was an excellent presentation. The instructor was casual, engaging, presented in an efficient and concise way. I would take another class again from this instructor and from this program in general.”-Paula R., Psychologist, California


Although medications are considered a first-line treatment for adult ADHD, most individuals will require additional psychosocial treatment in order to improve their functioning in various life roles. In fact, most adults with ADHD who are seeking treatment will say, “I know what I need to do, but I just don’t do it.” Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has emerged as the second evidence-supported treatment for adult ADHD. This presentation reviews a CBT model for understanding and treating adult ADHD. In particular, it focuses on how CBT has been adapted to address the problems faced by ADHD adults with a particular emphasis on promoting the implementation of effective coping strategies for a clinical population whose main difficulties are with poor follow through on intentions. In particular, the intervention domains of cognitive modification, behavior modification, acceptance/mindfulness, and implementation strategies will be reviewed. Dealing with procrastination is the clinical example used to illustrate these intervention domains for adult ADHD. Some of the most common coping strategies for managing adult ADHD also will be presented, along with specific tactics to promote engagement and follow through. Issues related to managing co-existing clinical issues will also be discussed. Case examples will be presented and participant questions answered throughout the webinar.

Calming The Emotional Storm: DBT Core Mindfulness Skills (1.5 CEs)
Presenter: Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RSW
$49.00
6/3/2022 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EST

“Sheri did a great job of keeping my attention. Time flew all the while I felt I was learning something of use.  I've been teaching clients mindfulness for years but there are those clients that are still difficult and haven't been responsive. This seminar gave me brand new tools/approaches and hope for helping some of my existing clients.”-Laura D., Social Worker, Arkansas

Over 75% of mental illnesses described in the DSM are related to emotion dysregulation – the inability to manage emotions effectively. Given that Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was initially created to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), of which emotion dysregulation is a primary problem, it only makes sense that DBT would be effective in treating other disorders, and research in recent years is supporting this.

This seminar will provide an overview of the DBT Core Mindfulness skills. Participants will learn about these skills, including an introduction to mindfulness, the States of Mind, and the “What” and “How” skills. Discussion will be around how to use these skills ourselves in both professional and personal lives, and how to teach these skills to clients struggling with mental illness.

Incorporating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy into your treatment approach will have a significant impact on your clinical effectiveness and the well-being of your clients.  ACT is a rich, integrative approach, and has been shown to be effective for many clinically-relevant concerns. Because ACT takes a different perspective on psychotherapy, some clinicians wonder how to blend the applications into their own therapy approach. Other clinicians who have embraced the ACT concepts still have questions about certain aspects of the therapy. This webinar will explain ACT in a very clear, concise, user-friendly manner.

8/5/2022 10:00 AM - 1:15 PM EST

Explained each component clearly and was great at putting it all together especially tying in the theories with clinical implications. This webinar inspired me to learn more about DBT, and use it with my clients.”-Liat Z., Professional Counselor, New York

Over 75% of mental illnesses described in the DSM are related to emotion dysregulation – the inability to manage emotions effectively. Given that Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was initially created to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), of which emotion dysregulation is a primary problem, it only makes sense that DBT would be effective in treating other disorders, and research in recent years is supporting this.

This seminar will provide an introduction to DBT, including the origins of the therapy, and the Biosocial Theory of how emotion dysregulation develops. You will learn about some of the research demonstrating that DBT is effective in treating disorders other than BPD.

Helping Clients Heal from Self-Harm: A DBT Approach for Teens (6 CEs)
Presenter: Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RSW
$99.00
8/8/2022 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM EST

Self-harm, or non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is most common among adolescents and young adults. Although NSSI typically decreases in late adolescence, this behavior is one of the strongest antecedents of suicide in youth; and those who engage in repetitive NSSI seem to be at high risk for continuing to use dysfunctional emotion regulation strategies, even after discontinuing NSSI. People engage in NSSI for a wide array of reasons (including a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD), but usually this involves an inability to manage emotions in some way, making Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) an ideal treatment for this population.

While most mental health clinicians will encounter NSSI at some point, there is still a paucity of research about this behaviour and why it happens; and education programs rarely teach about this behaviour and how to work with clients who are engaging in it. This workshop will help you understand NSSI, factors to consider when assessing and working with clients, and will take a DBT approach to helping clients eliminate this behaviour.
