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.

Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy: CIRTIN

Speakers: Andrew Christensen and Brian D. Doss
CE: 2.5

*Previously recorded from a Couples and Intimate Relationships Topical Interest Network Webinar

Join us for a two-part series on Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT). This series will include both an introduction to IBCT and an application of this model to an online couples relationship program called OurRelationship.com. Part 1: Couples often struggle with navigating partner differences and initiating positive behavioral changes in their relationship. Andrew Christensen, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and distinguished research professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will discuss Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT) and how it works towards the twin goals of acceptance and change through a behavioral treatment framework. Christensen will give an overview of the theoretical background of IBCT as well as the assessment, feedback, and active intervention phases of IBCT.

Part 2: Most couples do not seek couple therapy before divorcing; moreover, those that do are often able to attend a full course of treatment because of logistical or financial barriers. Dr. Brian Doss, professor of psychology at the University of Miami, will present a model for integrating the online OurRelationship program into an abbreviated 8-session course of IBCT. This integration is expected to help overcome significant treatment barriers while maximizing treatment effectiveness.

Integrative Model of Affair Recovery

Credits: 1 Speakers: Tina Timm, PhD and Adrian Blow, PhD

Infidelity is one of the most difficult presenting issues in couple therapy because of the emotional intensity, the complicated systemic issues, and the lack of evidence-based treatments on which to rely. There is evidence that infidelity has a significant attachment basis, and certainly can be conceptualized as an attachment injury in relationships. The presenters will describe a relational approach to treatment based in post-traumatic growth theory and attachment theory, showing how couples can grow stronger after the experience. The emphasis will be upon providing clinicians with key principles that are necessary for working with these couples and will integrate the latest research on mindfulness and self-compassion to help rebuild trust, foster secure attachment, and restore a connecting sexual relationship.

Intersectionality of the Body and Mind: The Endocrine System

CE's: 1.25

Speaker: Linda M. Rio

*Recorded from a previous webinar from Family Therapists in Healthcare Network ** No handouts provided**

The endocrine system affects nearly every area of the human body. Neuroendocrine disorders are often missed or misdiagnosed but have both medical and mental health symptoms and implications on Quality of Life (QoL). An understanding of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) can assist mental health professionals in becoming more aware of the interconnectedness and communication within the human body via the endocrine system and potential effects on human behavior and relationships. Patients often report suffering years to decades after seeing a host of physicians, mental health professionals, and others before proper attaining a proper diagnosis.

Frequently patients report being dismissed by both the medical and mental health as malingering or just being difficult. Mental health symptoms are often precursors to those more discernibly physical. Couples and families are affected by delays in proper treatment often leading to divorce, family disengagement, loss of employment and social connections. Mental health professionals will learn the importance, identification and treatment skills necessary to treat pituitary and neuroendocrine disorders collaboratively with medical specialists.



Learning Objectives:

1.) Participants will learn the physical, psychological, emotional, and relationship symptoms seen commonly in neuroendocrine disorders

2.) Participants will recognize the implications psychological and physical trauma can have on the H-P-A Axis and increased risk for development of neuroendocrine disorders.

3.) Participants will be able to approach the family and the patient's larger system with improved collaboration.

4.) Participants will understand ways to integrate knowledge of neuroendocrine disorders into professional practice, research, or teaching of family therapy.

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.
