Confabulation: A Review for Mental Health Professionals

Confabulation is a problematic memory phenomenon impacting some individuals involved in the mental health system. This phenomenon occurs when an individual creates or backfills a gap in their memory with a fictitious or imagined memory that may be partially based on real events, but taken out of chronological context (e.g., believing the memory occurred yesterday when in reality the memory took place many years prior). Confabulation is done without intent or motivation to deceive or lie. This can range from a slight distortion of an actual event to the nuanced generation of an intricate event. The causal origins of confabulation are unclear, but the combination of cognitive impairments of several disorders (e.g., fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, schizophrenia, traumatic-brain injury, and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome) and a predisposition to suggestion could be integral in eliciting this phenomenon. Confabulation can also occur among individuals with no known history of neurocognitive impairment, resulting from being asked direct or leading questions during a diagnostic assessment or therapy session. In some instances, confabulated statements can lead to misdiagnosis and the creation of an ineffective treatment plan. As such, training and education related to the impact of confabulation on mental health populations is a priority. This webinar will clearly distinguish confabulation from other potentially related constructs (e.g., suggestibility, delusions, and malingering), review important background information and warning signs for confabulation, and identify strategies and techniques to decrease the likelihood of confabulation during various stages of the mental health system (e.g., intake, screening, assessment, and treatment planning).

Helping MFTs Understand and Treat Chronic Pain

Millions of adults suffer from daily chronic pain. This impacts not only the person with pain, but the entire family system. There is a very strong bi-directional relationship between chronic pain and mental health. The bio-psycho-social model of chronic pain makes it clear that the most effective pain treatment uses a behavioral approach. Family systems approaches can improve quality of life for all involved. This webinar will examine the current model of chronic pain and explain why opioids commonly makes pain worse and why behavioral therapy is the evidence-based treatment of choice. This will be followed by a summary of the behavioral therapy techniques that will reduce pain and improve quality of life in those who hurt.
