Half Day Professional Workshop

Friday – January 20, 2017 1:30pm - 4:30pm | 3 CE Credits





Leader: Michael Hickey, Ph.D., Staff Psychologist & Director, Center for Psychological Evaluation, Albert Ellis Institute

Description

This workshop will first review clinical and diagnostic characteristics of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Participants will be introduced to the rationale and effective implementation of cognitive behavioral strategies based on the most recent research on effective treatment of OCD. Specifically, participants will learn how to conduct a proper functional assessment, collaborate with clients in constructing relevant exposure hierarchies, implement appropriate exposure and response prevention (ERP) interventions, and identify and gradually eliminate safety behaviors. Cognitive strategies based on Rational-Emotive & Cognitive Behavior Therapy (RE&CBT) principles will be integrated throughout the workshop as part of preparing for and maximizing the effectiveness of exposure therapy, as well to address various unhealthy emotions that commonly co-occur with OCD (e.g., anger, depression, shame etc.)

Half Day Professional Workshop

Friday – April 7, 2017 | 1:30pm - 4:30pm | 3 CE Credits





Leader: F. Michler Bishop, Ph.D. Staff Psychologist, Director, Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, Albert Ellis Institute

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 focus on a variety of MI techniques designed to motivate clients to make important changes in their lives.

One Day Professional Workshop

Friday – February 10, 2017 | 1:30pm - 4:30pm



Leader: Ennio Ammendola, M.A., M.H.C. – Certified REBT Supervisor at the Albert Ellis Institute (AEI)

Description

Suicide has been a significant public health crisis for a long time and it is still surrounded by limited public awareness and understanding. Furthermore, existing literature suggests that several factors are involved in understanding a suicide attempt and subsequent treatment. This presentation will explore some of the main suicide factors and how they can be identified along a “wanting to live/wanting to die” continuum instead of using a categorical approach “I want to die” or “I want to live.” This workshop will address high-risk suicidal thinking in terms of subjective versus objective attitude; utilizing a collaborative approach; identifying verbal versus nonverbal communication when assessing clients at high-risk for suicide; the importance instilling hope and addressing ambivalence and understanding hesitation. Other areas of discussion will include the role the environment plays; the delay-discounting process; structured versus unstructured assessment; a one size fits all versus a client-centered assessment approach; assessing acute versus chronic suicide; and treatment strategies. A model of a “Suicide Domino Effect” will be presented to integrate these factors within an RE & CBT perspective. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with clinical cases for role plays and discussions.
