Morning Workshop

The Stressed Years of Their Lives: The Launch to Adulthood
Friday, October 18, 2019
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Workshop Presenter: B. Janet Hibbs. M.F.T., Ph.D.

Location:
Trinity Memorial Church
22nd and Spruce Streets
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Program Description

Much of “readiness” for college admission centers upon academic preparation. Yet, social-emotional readiness and executive functioning are better predictors of college success. With soaring rates of anxiety and depression in today’s students and young adults, lifetime psychiatric disorders often first emerge during this time. In particular, typical college stressors can combust in a diagnosable condition. Many students are too scared to let on that they’re “in trouble” until it's too late to avoid a serious academic setback or emotional crisis. This workshop addresses the challenge of helping young people navigate this stressful period. Dr. Hibbs reveals how mental health providers, parents and educators can foster a growth mindset in students to promote readiness, resilience and better coping along the road to independent adulthood. The major content of this talk is drawn from her book, The Stressed Years of Their Lives: Helping Your Kid Survive and Thrive During Their College Years, co-authored with Anthony L. Rostain, M.D., M.A.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify three key indicators of social-emotional readiness for college;

  2. Describe two methods of fostering executive functioning prior to the end of high school;

  3. List three negative mindsets that interfere with the successful transition to college or independence.


Afternoon Workshop

Best Practices in Ethics*
Friday, October 18, 2019
1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m
Workshop Presenter: Linda K. Knauss, Ph.D., ABPP.

*This program meets the Pennsylvania State Board of Psychology requirements for continuing education credit hours in Ethics.

Location:
Trinity Memorial Church
22nd and Spruce Streets
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Program Description

Today’s clinical practice necessitates consideration of a myriad of ethical issues. How well do you balance conflicts between personal and professional values, your duties, and current liability risks? The purpose of this workshop is to provide practicing mental health professionals with guidance in order to negotiate many of these issues. Rather than focus on what psychologists need to do to avoid punishment, this workshop will focus on helping psychologists think through challenging ethical dilemmas.

Privacy, privileged communications, and confidentiality are cornerstones to effective psychotherapy, and areas that are of primary concern to mental health professionals. Challenges to these areas will be discussed as well as the implications of HIPAA. Informed consent will be discussed as a form of collaboration and shared decision making. In addition, ethical dilemmas related to the client-therapist relationship will be presented. These include: use of self-disclosure, accepting gifts, therapeutic touch, non-traditional settings for therapy, and non-sexual relationships after termination. Participants are invited to discuss ethical dilemmas from their own practices.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Assess your current ethical compliance;

  2. Apply ethical decision making skills;

  3. Anticipate and resolve ethical challenges in your practice.
