Dr. Samuel Knapp presents- Strategies to Encourage Fuller Disclosure Among Patients with Suicidal Thoughts

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and the most frequent crisis encountered by psychologists. Non-disclosure of suicidal thoughts is very common, and Blanchard and Farber (2020) estimated that 21% of patients with suicidal thoughts deny having them when asked by their psychotherapists. This webinar identifies steps that psychologists can take to better identify patients who have suicidal thoughts or plans but who deny or minimize them.

Dr. Christine Love Sterk presents- Growing your own: Developing mental health training programs to address local service needs

The demand for mental health professionals continues to increase across the United States, particularly since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. On a macro level, agencies can contribute to growth of the field by training graduate students to be highly-qualified clinicians equipped to assist those in need. In the short term, agencies can benefit from acting as a training site through use of trainees to help meet service demands. This training will teach professionals what they need to know to develop a training site for psychology, counseling, social work, and marriage and family therapy trainees, including the use of the Integrative Developmental Model (Stoltenberg et al., 2014) in considering what trainees are best suited for your site. An introduction to Competency-Based Supervision (Falender & Shafranske, 2007) will help supervisors prepare for appropriately evaluating trainees’ skills and progress, and logistical components of developing a training program will be discussed.

Dr. Samuel Knapp presents- Ethically Based Risk Management Strategies

The most effective risk management strategy is to deliver and document good clinical services. Any purported risk management strategy that fails to promote patient well-being or fails to adhere to an overarching ethical principle is a false risk management strategy that must be questioned. This workshop reviews the basics of professional liability, ethically based risk management strategies (expanding one’s resources, empowering patients, documentation, and enhanced monitoring of one’s work), and ways that psychologists can improve the quality of their services through self-reflection, self-care, and deliberate practice. The workshop gives participants the opportunity for self-reflection.

Dr. Carol Falendar presents- Multicultural Competency-based Clinical Supervision

This training describes essential components of clinical supervision as defined by multiple mental health disciplines, the subsequent research on clinical supervision. Participants will learn the complexity of the multiple components of supervisor multicultural competence and cultural humility considering health equity. There will be an emphasis on multicultural identities and worldviews of all participants in the context of establishing the supervisory relationship, translation to the supervision contract, goal setting and anchored feedback. Impact of COVID-19, telesupervision, and emerging data on supervisee, supervisor, and client effective strategies will be discussed. Prevention of frequent supervisor errors and inadequate or even harmful supervision will be outlined. Discussion will focus on enhancing supervisor competence and managing countertransference and emotional reactivity. Focus will be on addressing and preventing vicarious traumatization, enhancing supervisor competence in self-awareness, self-care, and support at the individual, group, and setting levels.
