Category: CE Events: Families

Since many forms of adult psychopathology begin in childhood and adolescence, Dr. Meichenbaum will provide a discussion of ways to intervene across the life-span. The workshop will consider the unique neuro-biological and psycho-social challenges for "high-risk" clients, including children, adolescents and their families, adults with co-occurring disorders, and the elderly. Particular emphasis will be placed on the demonstration of evidenced-based cognitive-behavioral treatment and resilience-engendering preventative approaches. How therapists who work in a variety of settings, including individual practices, community clinics, schools, and Residential Treatment Centers, can alter the developmental trajectories and achieve lasting changes in "high -risk" clients will be considered. Dr. Meichenbaum will highlight ways to tailor interventions in both a developmentally and culturally sensitive manner. Finally, he will discuss ways to bolster resilience in psychotherapists.
