MORNING SESSION: MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING: THEORY, RESEARCH, & PRACTICE (3 CE

Description

Motivational Interviewing has proven effective for a variety of clinical problems. It began with a focus on the treatment of problem drinking and drug addictions, but in recent years its use has expanded to a variety of clinical and health-related problems. This workshop will employ lectures, videos, Power Points, and role-playing to teach participants about theory and research on MI and how to employ it in clinical practice.

This intermediate level presentation will help participants

1. Explain key components of the theory of Motivational Interviewing.

2. List at least 2 principles and skills of Motivational Interviewing.

3. Describe some of the clinical applications of Motivational Interviewing to psychotherapy.

4. Demonstrate skills of Motivational Interviewing in roleplaying.

AFTERNOON SESSION: ROLES, HOLES, & SCROLLS: AVOIDING ETHICAL MISTAKES IN CLINICAL PRACTICE* (4 CE)

*This presentation is designed to meet the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiner’s (ABPE) Ethics CE requirement; however, final determination is made by the ABPE.

Description

This program addresses professional ROLES and how to recognize and minimize Multiple Relationships, how to distinguish boundary crossings from boundary violations and how to deal with confidentiality issues in rural, smaller towns, or close communities.

HOLES in your practice can get you in trouble, so this program will help you organize the 4 C’s of practice: Competence, Conflicts, Confidentiality, and Consents. Documentation requirements, handling court-related actions, and tips for how to patch your practice holes will be addressed.

We all must keep adequate records and know when and how to store them, retain them, and release them. Dealing with the SCROLLS in your practice is the focus of the third part of this program.

This intermediate level presentation will help participants

1. Attendees will identify and discuss professional boundaries in mental health practice roles.

2. Attendees will identify and discuss components of professional documentation in Arizona mental health practice.

3. Attendees will organize professional ethics into four major categories, the 4 C’s of practice: Competence, Conflicts, Confidentiality, and Consents.

4. Attendees will acquire strategies and professional behaviors to avoid or minimize practice risks, with special reference to Arizona statutes and the APA 2017 Code of Ethics.

5. Attendees should be better able to select and apply professional behaviors consistent with desired goals and outcomes.
