Addressing Ambivalence for Treatment and Recovery Among Young Adults
1.5 CE hours presented by Susan McClanahan, PhD, CEDS
To access course, use code: Ambivalence2020
More U.S. adolescents and young adults in the late 2010’s (vs. the mid-2000’s) experienced major depression, psychological distress, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, and suicide completion. These trends do not exist for adults 26-year-old and over, suggesting a generational upsurge in mood and anxiety disorders and suicide-related behaviors. High rates of substance use in this demographic add to the acuity of the difficulty these individuals face. This mental health crisis has implications for all aspects of an individual’s functioning, including in the workplace. Often times, it is co-workers, bosses, and EAP counselors who are on the front lines for identifying and intervening to encourage people to get the care that they need. This talk will address trends in mental health among young adults, consider factors that contribute to these trends, and present ways of addressing common ambivalence for seeking and receiving adequate mental health treatment resources.
How to Recognize Eating Disorder Behaviors in the Substance Abuse Population and Integrated Treatment
1.5 CE hours presented by Leah Young, LCPC
To access course, use code: SUD_Young2020
For a long time, ED and SUD were treated separately or in succession. We have learned that this is not an effective path to recovery. A more thorough understanding of these disorders, how they interact and how to effectively treat them is imperative.
Understanding the Adolescent Brain in the Treatment of Eating Disorders
2 CE hours presented by Ovidio Bermudez, MD, FAAP, FSHAM, FAED, F.iaedp, CEDS
To access course, use code: Adolescence2020
This presentation will review 3 concepts of the current understanding of brain development. The first is proliferation and pruning as the brain grows via enhancement of gray matter and white matter. The second is sequential maturation and fully coming online of different areas of the brain and how this may help clinicians understand emotion regulation. Third how environmental and hormonal influences may affect brain development. In addition, how this may be applied to the treatment of eating disorders in children and adolescents will be discussed.
