About this Event

Presenter :

Raymond Chip Tafrate, Ph.D., Professor and Clinical Psychologist

Overview:

Practitioners across numerous settings will encounter adolescents and adults whose antisocial thinking puts them at risk for significant loss because of reckless decision-making, destructive behaviors, and deeper involvement in the criminal justice system. In this workshop, step-by-step guidelines will be provided for identifying and restructuring a unique constellation of thinking patterns that drive antisocial and criminal conduct. This workshop is highly interactive, incorporating structured learning activities that include audio-recorded work samples, small group exercises, and “real”-plays.

Learning Objectives:

1) Recognize key distinctions between traditional mental health treatment and effective interventions for antisocial and criminal behavior

2) Understand why an exclusive focus on mental health symptoms is ill-advised when working with antisocial and forensic clients

3) Appreciate that even in clients who present with both mental health problems and antisociality, the cognitions that amplify dysphoric symptoms will be different from those that facilitate criminal decisions

4) Become proficient in spotting criminogenic thoughts and thinking patterns that drive specific incidents of harmful behavior

5) Practice forensic CBT sequences and conversations designed to elicit criminogenic thinking

6) Apply models of criminogenic thinking to current and former clients

7) Learn several strategies for monitoring the impact of criminogenic thinking in clients’ day-to-day lives

8) Become skilled at techniques for restructuring criminogenic thoughts and thinking patterns to improve client decision-making

9) Acquire knowledge of additional resources to promote practitioner skill development for working with antisocial and forensic clientele
