The purpose of this workshop is to review what we know about anger and propose a model to understand anger as a clinical problem that can guide research, assessment, diagnosis, and treatments. Existing measures of anger and aggression in youth will be examined. A new assessment instrument, the Anger Regulation and Expression Scale (ARES) used to assess anger in children and adolescents will be introduced. Empirically based treatments and new treatments for anger will be examined.
Increasing motivation to change is a key skill all therapists must practice in their offices on a daily basis. Many clients are only half motivated to change. They want to change but they also want to go on doing what they are doing, for example, engaging in addictive behaviors, depressing themselves, and procrastinating. This workshop will provide practitioners with an opportunity to practice a variety of MI techniques designed to motivate clients to make important changes in their lives.
Changes made to the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria will be presented and discussed in this workshop. This workshop will also provide a description of changes pertaining to the chapter organization in DSM-5, the multiaxial system, the introduction of dimensional assessments, controversies and challenges, and likely future directions. The purpose of this workshop is to provide the mental health professional with a working knowledge and understanding of the new diagnostic system, including changes from DSM-IV to DSM-V, and will provide a useful guide to the ways in which these changes require an adaptation of day-to-day clinical practice.
