    Presented by Robin Timme, Psy.D., ABPP

    Workshop Overview:

    In many jurisdictions across the country, the demand for forensic evaluations outpace the supply of qualified evaluators. This workshop provides a basic overview of forensic evaluation methodology, such that practicing psychologists and other clinicians are introduced to assessment of competency to stand trial in a criminal proceeding along with related processes for court-involved evaluations. Participants will leave with basic knowledge of psycho-legal principles for each type of evaluation, along with resources and recommendations for further study.

    Objectives:

    1.    Articulate the basic methodology used in general forensic evaluation.

    2.    Describe the psycho-legal questions to be addressed in matters of competency to stand trial and related court-involved matters;

    3.    List resources for further study of forensic evaluation methodology and application in practice.

      Clinician’s Guide to Psychological Treatments for Chronic Pain in Kids, Teens, and Young Adults: A Skills Based Workshop

      Friday, May 14th, 2021, 9AM-12:15PM (one 15 minute break)

      Three (3) Continuing Education Credits

      Presented by Katherine Salamon, Ph.D., & Aimee Hildenbrand, Ph.D.

      See the Program Brochure for more details.

      Program Description

      About 1 in 5 youth develop persistent pain during childhood and benefit from biopsychosocial pain management approaches. However, access to skilled mental health clinicians in the community who are comfortable providing psychological treatments for chronic pain is limited, leading to disparities in treatment access. To address this need, this workshop will provide the groundwork to apply psychological approaches for pain management when working with children, teens, and young adults. Issues related to disparities in pain management for underserved populations will also be discussed.


      Workshop Objectives

      1. Discuss evidence supporting the use of psychological approaches for the treatment of pediatric chronic pain.
      2. Identify at least 3 core components of cognitive-behavioral or acceptance-based psychological treatment for youth presenting with persistent pain.
      3. Discuss common myths and biases related to pain in underserved populations and how these relate to poorer pain management outcomes in these groups
