Ethical Issues in the Workplace: Workplace Bullying of People of Color

8:45am - 9:45am

CEU: 1 Core Hour (in person ethics)

Speaker: Johanna Workman, Psy.D.

Workplace bullying refers to repeated mistreatment of an individual by a coworker or group of coworkers. Workplace bullying is abusive conduct that may include: humiliation, unjustified threats, work-sabotaging behaviors, and failure to give appropriate credit. The consequences to the target of bullying can include psychological stress, harm to physical health, loss of productivity, job loss, and financial stress. In the last couple of years, this country has seen an uptick in racialized bullying, with Latinx and Black employees disproportionately targeted. Racialized workplace bullying may include the following to People of Color (POC): questioning judgment/assuming inferior intellect; not respecting legitimate authority; policing facial expressions, hair style, and tone of voice; failing to use proper title when addressing the POC target. This presentation will identify the psychological, physiological, social, and financial impact of workplace bullying to intended targets. This presentation will also identify specific bullying behaviors towards POC targets. Actions plans to remediate racialized workplace bullying will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives:

1. Be able to identify common techniques employed in workplace bullying

2. Be able to identify specific common behaviors used to target POC in the workplace

3. Understand the psychological, physiological, social, and economic impact to workplace bullying

4. Be able to identify potential ways to combat workplace bullying


Healing the Body & Soul: Effective Integrated Treatment for Trauma & Eating Disorders

10am - 4pm (Lunch provided 12:30pm - 1:30pm)

CEU: 4.5 Core Hours

Speaker: Melissa Coffin, Ph.D., Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS)

There is increasing evidence that PTSD and trauma reactions are critical perpetuating factors in eating disorders (ED). Not only are clinicians often ill-equipped to assess and treat concurrent ED and PTSD, but also there are few established models for concurrent treatment. This workshop will provide a critical overview of eating disorders for participants including diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, special populations and treatment approaches followed by a closer look at the interplay between trauma and eating disorders. Lastly it will introduce Cognitive Processing Therapy as the treatment of choice for co-occurring PTSD and Eating Disorder diagnoses. This presentation will also review the need to shift from a sequential model, that prioritized treatment of the ED prior to addressing trauma reactions, to a new concurrent model of treating both the ED and the trauma at the same time. CPT targets transdiagnostic factors such as emotional and experiential avoidance, core beliefs underlying the ED urges and behaviors, and cognitive distortions. Latter stages of CPT modules on trust, intimacy and self-esteem will also be discussed. Lastly this presentation will review preliminary empirical data and case examples on changes in trauma reactivity, eating symptomatology and perception of the trauma event.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the diagnostic categories of eating disorders

2. Be able to discuss the interplay between eating disorders and trauma

3. Explain the central components to Cognitive Processing Therapy
