Special Topics in PE: Using PE Among Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence with Dr. Lily Brown and Lauren Lia - Recorded June 3, 2022 - 3.5 hours

Rates of intimate partner violence spiked by as much as 30 - 60% during the early stages of the COVID-19 lockdown orders. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in new challenges for survivors of intimate partner violence as their options for leaving the home may be more limited compared to pre-pandemic resources. The increased reports of domestic violence coupled with increased rates of mental health diagnoses, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), necessitate consideration of strategies to optimize therapy for survivors of domestic violence who meet criteria for PTSD.

In this workshop, Dr. Lily Brown and Lauren Lia discuss barriers to care among survivors of intimate partner violence, reviewing guidelines for determining appropriateness for care for survivors of domestic violence, presenting core trauma-related cognitions that are often disrupted among survivors of domestic violence, and discussing strategies to attempt to elicit such cognitions in processing to reduce PTSD symptoms. Special considerations around in vivo exposure practice will be discussed in detail, especially in relation to contact with the perpetrator of violence and common points of intersection with the legal system when conducting psychotherapy with a survivor of intimate partner violence.

Specific Phobias in Adults, Adolescents, and Children: How to Develop a Detailed Exposure Plan for Any Fear with Dr. Jessica Bodie - Recorded January 28, 2022 - 3.5 hours

Specific phobias are one of the most common anxiety disorders, affecting approximately 9% of the adult U.S. population and 5-15% of children and adolescents. Many clinicians understand the basic model of exposure therapy for specific phobias, but when cases arise, often have questions such as: How many exposures does the patient need to do? Where do I start?; What are common ways to get daily practice with rare phobic encounters (e.g., spiders, planes, vomiting)?; How far do I have patients take each exposure? How do I know if I’ve activated the fear at the right level?; How do I motivate patients to approach avoided and feared stimuli?; How do I navigate treatment of fears that have some element of objective danger (e.g., fear of snakes, fear of choking)? This webinar will address these questions and present case examples across all five specific phobia types.

Treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Behavioral Approaches with Dr. Keith Bredemeier - Recorded January 14, 2022 - 3.5 hours

Amongst anxiety-related disorders, many clinicians find generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) to be particularly difficult to treat effectively, perhaps due to the pervasive avoidant coping tendencies of these clients and the varying focus of their worries.  Importantly, worry can be conceptualized as a cognitive form of avoidance, and this formulation has important clinical implications.  Interestingly, the cognitive nature of this condition can lead therapists to presume that cognitive techniques are most suitable for these clients – however, several behavioral techniques have strong empirical support (as components of CBT for GAD protocols, or as standalone interventions).  This workshop will focus on prominent evidence-based behavioral interventions for GAD – specifically, attendees will learn and practice implementing stimulus control strategies, applied relaxation skills, problem-solving tools, and exposure therapy techniques.

Treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Cognitive Approaches with Dr. Keith Bredemeier - Recorded May 7, 2021 - 3.5 hours

Amongst anxiety-related disorders, many clinicians find generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) to be particularly difficult to treat effectively, perhaps due to the pervasive avoidant coping tendencies of these clients and the varying focus of their worries.  Importantly, worry can be conceptualized as a cognitive form of avoidance, and this formulation has important clinical implications.  Several cognitive therapy techniques have strong empirical support (as components of CBT for GAD protocols, or standalone interventions) – these techniques involve engaging in reflective processing and/or behavioral experimentation on the content of worries (e.g., the likelihood that specific feared outcomes will occur) or aspects of meta-cognition (i.e., “thinking about thinking”; e.g., views about the utility of worrying).  This workshop will focus on prominent evidence-based cognitive interventions for GAD – in particular, attendees will learn and practice implementing traditional cognitive therapy techniques, tailored cognitive therapy techniques targeting worry thoughts, strategies for evaluating beliefs about worry, and strategies for evaluating personal performance standards.

Suicide Risk Assessment in Patients with Anxiety-Related Disorders with Dr. Lily Brown - Recorded October 29, 2021 - 3 hours

Anxiety disorders are associated with increased risk for suicidal ideation and suicidal behavior. Proper assessment of suicide risk is required to effectively manage risk in therapy. This webinar will review evidence-based assessment of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. We will discuss strategies to optimize risk assessment while promoting rapport and increasing the likelihood of disclosure.  Special attention will be paid to working with patients with an anxiety disorder who are at risk for suicide. We will dedicate some time to conducting suicide risk assessments in telehealth interactions. Finally, we will review strategies to promote lethal means restriction while reducing anxiety for the therapist and the patient.

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.

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Social Anxiety Disorder with Dr. Lily Brown - Recorded April 30, 2021 - 3 hours

This workshop will review cognitive behavior therapy for SAD, including adapting interventions to telehealth and with adherence to current social distancing guidelines. Moreover, evidence suggests individuals with SAD often misperceive and underestimate their own social performance, as well as rely on maladaptive safety behaviors in social situations. 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.
