Evidence-Based Treatment for Panic Disorder with Dr. Elizabeth Turk-Karan - Recorded October 8, 2021 - 5 hours

Cognitive-Behavior Therapy has been empirically shown to be the recommended therapy for Panic Disorder.  Meta-analyses have found very large effect sizes with 50-70% of clients within normative functioning and 70-80% panic-free. Yet few clients receive this robust treatment. This workshop will focus on the practical application of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Panic Disorder. In this webinar, attendees will learn to diagnose and assess panic disorder as well as the techniques that are effective in reducing (and even eliminating) the symptoms.

Habit Reversal Training for Trichotillomania and Excoriation Disorders Workshop with Dr. Jessica Bodie - Recorded August 6, 2021 - 6.5 hours

Habit Reversal Training (HRT) is the leading empirically supported treatment to address the body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs) found in excoriation disorder (skin picking) and trichotillomania (hair pulling). HRT recognizes the rewarding and appetitive nature of these behaviors and utilizes a practical and personalized approach to reducing symptom interference. In this webinar, attendees will learn to assess BFRBs and related disorders using gold standard measures and become educated in current treatment research. Other topics include: Completing a functional analysis to examine the behavioral antecedents (e.g., premonitory urges) and consequences of picking and pulling behaviors, Awareness training, Stimulus control strategies, Competing responses, Motivating patients through lapses, Collaboration with medical providers (e.g., dermatologists), and Addressing comorbidities (e.g., anxiety, depression) related to BFRBs.

Introduction to Anxiety Disorders with Dr. Sandy Capaldi — Recorded July 28, 2021 — 3 hours — FREE!

Free 3 hour presentation for the Community Behavioral Health network in Philadelphia, where Dr. Sandy Capaldi introduces participants to anxiety disorders. Dr. Capaldi discusses terminology related to anxiety and points out the differences between anxiety and anxiety disorders. Prevalence, comorbidity, and components of anxiety are presented. The cycle of anxiety is introduced and specific anxiety and related disorders are reviewed. Finally, several case studies are presented and participants are asked to provide a most likely diagnosis.


Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID): An Introduction to An Exposure-Based Treatment for Picky Eating with Dr. Jessica Bodie - Recorded July 16, 2021 - 6.5 hours

Picky eating is prevalent among children and adolescents and elicits considerable concern and distress from caregivers. When picky eating manifests in a persistent failure to meet appropriate nutritional, energy, and/or growth targets, necessitates supplementation, or interferes with psychosocial functioning (e.g., family strain, difficulty eating outside the home), a diagnosis of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) can be made. Though food-related anxiety and avoidance responds well to exposure therapy (Dahlsgaard & Bodie, 2019), very few practitioners in the anxiety or eating disorder fields are trained to treat ARFID. Dr. Jessica Bodie, director of child services at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety, will lead this webinar and provide an introduction to ARFID and an exposure-based parent intervention shown to reduce picky eating. Dr. Bodie is a former co-leader of the Picky Eaters Clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and has published research in this topic. Attendees will learn components of parent management training to coach parents to act as behavioral interventionists and lead children in daily food exposures. This method has been shown to effectively promote and generalize long-term improvements in food acceptance and positive mealtime behaviors in the home and other social settings.

Inhibitory Learning in Exposure Therapy for Anxiety-Related Disorders with Dr. Lily Brown - Recorded July 15, 2021 - 3 hours

Inhibitory learning offers an alternative approach for understanding the process of recovery from anxiety-related disorders. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of critical points about inhibitory learning theory as it relates to the practice of exposure therapy for anxiety-related disorders. We will present strategies for conducting exposure therapy in a manner that is guided by principals of inhibitory learning. Using case examples from a variety of anxiety-related disorders, we will offer suggestions to enhance patients’ ability to learn about safety versus threat in real-world clinical practice. We will demonstrate how return of fear is a common obstacle to the long-term success of exposure therapy and discuss evidence-based strategies to mitigate return of fear. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear about the latest research on this topic area, and how that research can be optimally translated into clinical practice.

Evidence-Based Assessment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder with Dr. Sandy Capaldi - Recorded July 12, 2021 - 3.75 hours

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder involving development of disturbing and distressing symptoms after exposure to a traumatic event and is associated with considerable functional impairment and comorbidity. Early detection of PTSD constitutes the first crucial step in addressing and ameliorating the increased risks associated with development of PTSD, requiring adequate screening and diagnostic tools for PTSD. Given high rates of trauma exposure worldwide, psychometrically sound assessment of PTSD diagnosis and symptom severity using current conceptualizations of the disorder is vital.

This workshop will introduce participants to the DSM-5 definition of a traumatic event, review the diagnostic criteria for PTSD, and discuss differential diagnosis as well as prevalence, comorbidity, and risk factor data. Participants will also be introduced to the Posttraumatic Stress Scale for DSM-5 (Interview version –PSSI-5) as well as the PTSD Diagnostic Scale for DSM-5 (PDS-5), a self-report measure of PTSD symptoms. Administration of the PSSI-5 and PDS-5 will be covered in detail.

Interoceptive Exposures for Anxiety-Related Disorders with Dr. Lily Brown - Recorded May 21, 2021 - 3 hours

Many patients with anxiety disorders struggle with fears of bodily sensations. While this fear is most obvious in the context of panic disorder, patients with social anxiety, PTSD, and OCD often report elevated concerns about physiological manifestations of anxiety. For instance, it is common for patients to worry about sweating, breathing, choking, or their heart rate. In this webinar, Dr. Lily Brown will discuss the importance of interoceptive exposures for patients with fears of bodily sensations. We will introduce strategies to standardize the practice of interoceptive exposures for patients with anxiety. In addition, we will discuss strategies for using cognitive restructuring and acceptance to optimize the impact of interoceptive exposures. Attendees will leave this webinar with tips and tricks to ease the implementation of interoceptive exposures in their clinical practice.

Therefore, this workshop will focus in particular on the theory, research, and application of video feedback components in the treatment of SAD. This 3 hour workshop is designed to review prominent evidence-based behavioral interventions for delivering video-feedback exposures among individuals with SAD, including video-feedback exposures conducted with telehealth.
