Multidisciplinary School Teams and Complex Student Needs

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Kathleen C. Laundy, PsyD Schools are where children spend the bulk of their time outside of their homes, and for many students it is where they receive health care services. The second session will focus on the multidisciplinary matrix of school health team members and how they collaborate to clinically support student achievement and health. This webinar will integrate school categories of disability with the APA DSM-5 system of diagnosis, and will use complex case examples containing medical, psychological and learning elements to illustrate the value of multidisciplinary assessment and treatment in schools. Assessment tools and the specific roles and responsibilities of team members will also be addressed in this session.

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS): An Advanced Overview

Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) occurs in babies that experience prenatal exposure to opioids. The baby is simply exposed to opioids in the womb during the course of pregnancy. As a result, the infant is born already addicted to whatever substances that the mother consumed during her pregnancy. These substances could be prescription (e.g., methadone and oxycodone) or illegal (e.g., heroin) in nature. When the baby no longer receives the drug after birth, withdrawal symptoms such as vomiting, seizures, sensory sensitivity, and loss of weight become apparent. This syndrome can have both short- and long-term developmental consequences. Concerns of NAS have increased with the opioid addiction crisis in the United States. In fact, research suggests somewhere between 25% and 30% of American pregnant women are prescribed opioids like OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin. This does not even account for instances where illegal drugs are consumed by pregnant women. Fueled by the consumption of these drugs, NAS has become one of the largest public health problems in the United States. For example, cases of NAS skyrocketed by approximately 400% from 2000 to 2012 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). This leaves 3.9 out of every 1000 delivery admissions in the United States with NAS. This training is designed to increase awareness of NAS and prepare attendees to address this public health crisis in the field. Specifically, the training will define NAS, explore the developmental and behavioral health consequences of NAS, discuss screening and assessment options, and identify evidence-based treatments and interventions (including systemic family therapy) for the baby and mother. Medical, mental health, child welfare, legal, and criminal justice professionals will benefit from this training.

Online Therapy: Taking a Not Knowing Position

Speaker: Richard P. Long, PhD, LMFT
CE Credits: 1.5

This course is provided by the Telehealth and Technology Network; find out more and how to join at www.aamft.org/tin.

“Nothing is permanent but change,” said the Greek philosopher Heraclitus fifty-eight hundred years ago. If that is true, then we as therapists have a responsibility to consider what it means to provide clients an alternative to in-person therapy—delivery via technology-assisted services, telehealth, telemental health, or online therapy. With the publication of 2017 Report of the Online Therapy Workgroup, MFT’s can no longer take a not knowing’ position when it comes to delivering therapy online. This presentation will provide participants with an overview of ethical and regulatory issues, training programs, clinical issues and selected best practice guidelines for the delivery of therapy using telehealth.

Play Time’s Over: Diagnosing Video Game Addiction

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Sarah Hays, Justine Mastin, and Larisa Garski In this presentation, we aim to help clinicians gain competence in the context of gaming and geek content - particularly video games. We will take a philosophical look at the theories behind video game play and gameplay generally (ludology), the theory of virtually being (ontology), what video game play really is as a behavior, and the relationships gained both parasocially and intrasocially through play. In parallel, we will discuss the semantic and contextual considerations surrounding addiction. This will lead to a thoughtful conversation addressing the diagnosis of behaviors, symptoms, and accuracy of diagnoses specifically surrounding disordered and healthy video game play. We will discuss potential pitfalls involved in this process including client honesty, comprehensive scope of symptom consideration, billing pressure, and client-family report. Clinicians who attend this workshop will have insight to the culture of video games and how to more accurately address the concept of addiction in context of an evolving digital and technological world.

Providing Quality Care to LGBT Patients

CE credit: 2 Speaker: Alex Karydi

In this two hour webinar, participants will learn ways to provide affirming and inclusive health care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, patients. LGBTQ populations must navigate the typical challenges of life while also managing the social stigma associated with their emerging sexual and gender minority identities. As a result, many LGBT individuals are at higher risk for certain behavioral and emotional issues, homelessness, victimization, and suicide. This module discusses the unique health and developmental challenges of LGBT populations, and describes ways to address these issues in the clinical setting. Through sensitive, confidential communication, clinicians can become a vital source of support for this vulnerable population

Raising Vibrant Children: Research Reveals the Critical Role

CE Credits: 1.50 Speaker(s): Martha E. Wadsworth Converging evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and biology shows that a well-developed psychobiological stress response system that supports healthy coping and self-regulation is critical to the development of vibrant children—children who thrive even when faced with difficult life circumstances. Dr. Wadsworth will synthesize current evidence demonstrating the critical roles of stress reactivity and regulation in fostering resilience, present exciting new research showing the biological underpinnings of healthy self-regulation, and introduce new findings from her own research showing the dynamic interplay between the physiologic stress responses systems (e.g., hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis) and children’s cognitive and behavioral coping and self-regulation responses to stress.
