Treating OCD & Other Related Disorders (5 CECs- Clinical Skills)
In this workshop we will review the DSM-5 Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (OCRDs), including obsessive-compulsive disorder, hoarding disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, trichotillomania, and excoriation (skin-picking) disorder. Similarities and differences among these disorders will be discussed. We will review essential cognitive-behavioral treatment strategies to reduce obsessionality and impulsivity among patients with (OCRDs).
Buried in Treasures: The Nature & Treatment of Hoarding Disorders (4.5 Nationally Approved CECs- Clinical Skills)
The aim of this workshop is to familiarize you with hoarding disorder, a common and potentially severe mental health problem characterized by acquisition of, and failure to discard, a large number of possessions to the extent that living spaces become uninhabitable. We will review emerging data investigating the nature of hoarding, associated mental health features, and new research findings regarding brain function in people who hoard.
To date, hoarding disorder has frustrated mental health and social service workers due to its apparently chronic and treatment-resistant nature. Many hoarders are reluctant to seek help, and even those who do seek help frequently resist therapists’ efforts to intervene. Clinical studies, therefore, have consistently shown a poor response to psychological and pharmacologic treatments. Recently, however, a new model of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as emerged based on our increasing understanding of hoarding. In this workshop, you will learn specific skills to increase patients’ motivation and compliance, challenge maladaptive ways of thinking, and learn new behavior patterns. We will also discuss possibilities for further development of the CBT model, including augmentation with cognition-enhancing exercises and medications as well as the collaboration between mental health professional and paraprofessionals.
The Science & Art of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (3 CECs- Clinical Skills)
We will begin by reviewing the central foundations of CBT and providing a general model of psychopathology that can be used for a broad range of psychiatric patients. We will discuss mechanisms of maladaptive cognition, emotion, and behavior, and the interplay among these mechanisms. We will also discuss factors that are associated with the etiology and maintenance of pathological processes.
We will discuss approaches to intervening at various levels of the pathological process. Event-related concerns will be addressed using strategies such as stimulus control. For cognitive-related concerns, we will describe both cognitive restructuring approaches and newer approaches based on mindfulness and acceptance. For emotional concerns, we will also review mindfulness as an intervention, with additional discussion of emotion modulation strategies such as relaxation training.
Finally, we will describe a range of behavioral interventions that can be applied for a range of patients in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Strategies such as operant therapy (e.g., reinforcement strategies), exposure, activity scheduling, and skill building will be reviewed, and we will discuss how these behavioral strategies can be used in conjunction with other interventions.
Face Your Fears: Conducting Good Exposure Therapy Across Diagnoses (5 Nationally Approved CECs- Clinical Skills)
Exposure therapy is an evidence-based treatment for anxiety-related disorders including phobias, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. In this workshop, we will describe the psychological mechanisms of exposure-based therapy, and will address several myths that contributes to the under-utilization of this treatment. Using both didactic presentation and video vignettes, we will discuss and demonstrate the use of in vivo exposure, imaginal exposure, and interoceptive exposure for a range of anxiety-related problems. We will also discuss several efficacy-boosting strategies, such as motivational interviewing, eliminating safety behaviors, and using rational thinking skills.
