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.

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.
