What Every Clinician Needs To Know About Violence Risk Assessment (3 CEs)
Presenter: David L. Shapiro, Ph.D.
$59.00
11/15/2019 1:00 PM - 4:15 PM EST

The ability to predict  future violent behavior has long been an issue for mental health professionals.  Initially it was merely assumed that we could make such predictions accurately based on our clinical skills alone.  Many decisions in the judicial system hinge on an accurate assessment of violence, such as  bond, probation, and parole decisions, committment to and release from psychiatric facilities, and even whether or not a defendant should be sentenced to death.

Recent research has demonstrated however that such predictions are not as accurate as once assumed and that the methodology used was sadly lacking in  validity.   A tremendous amount of research has gone into risk assessment for future  violence ; still,,  the accuracy remains in question even to this day; nevertheless, judicial decisions are continually made which ignore our limited ability to assess violent behavior.

This webinar will explore  the factors necessary to do competent work in this area and demonstrate the ways that risk assessment can become more precise.

Bullying in School: Definition, Prevalence, Effects, Prevention, and Intervention (3 CEs)
Presenter: Kathleen Allen, Ph.D.
$59.00
11/25/2019 10:00 AM - 1:15 PM EST

“Very helpful and incredibly insightful. Brought ideas and suggestions to the topic I had not thought about.” -Gina F., Social Worker, New York

Bullying has become a high priority problem for many schools. Across the country, most states have passed laws that prohibit bullying and harassment because of the hostile and discriminatory environment that they create. Students who are targeted by bullying suffer educational discrimination as well as a host of internalizing and externalizing problems. Likewise, the effects on bullies and bystanders are not to be dismissed. This webinar will take participants through basic and mid-level information on bullying that will provoke critical thinking about how we have traditionally sought to prevent and respond to this problem. It will consider how context shapes behaviors and how we as adults in the school environment can influence context. Finally, this webinar will look at ways to respond to bullying that avoid the traditional “investigate, interrogate, blame, and punish” approach to solving the problem of bullying.

Assessment and Treatment of Nonsuicidal Self-injury (3 CEs)
Presenter: Kelly Wester, Ph.D.
$59.00
12/9/2019 10:00 AM - 1:15 PM EST
Nonsuicidal self-injury is more common than we think. Almost every mental health clinician has come across some form of nonsuicidal self-injury in their careers, and the behavior is on the rise among adolescents and young adults. Yet, rarely do education programs cover anything about nonsuicidal self-injury within their programs, even though it is important for mental health clinicians to be aware of what this behavior is, how to assess it, how it is related yet different from suicidal behavior, and how to intervene and work with clients who engage in nonsuicidal self-injury. This seminar will help you understand what nonsuicidal self-injury is, factors to consider when assessing and working with clients, ethical considerations in treatment and breaching confidentiality, and methods of treatment that have been shown to be effective.
