Time: 8:00 AM-3:50 PM

Location: Kohala

ABPP Specialty Area: Couple and Family Psychology

Description: This workshop presents a unique model for providing psychotherapy that eliminates unintentional barriers that delay access to care between clients, especially the underserved, and service providers. The model takes advantage of clients’ readiness for change and the widespread acceptance of walking in for other services nowadays. Participants will learn: how to establish WI services in their practices to reduce wait lists and downtime from no shows; the principles of SST in WI services; and how to set appropriate client goals for SST. The aim is for workshop participants to leave able to organize and conduct culturally sensitive, cost-effective WI/SST in their home agencies and practices.

Description: Understanding the effects of combat deployment on psychological and cognitive functioning in a sample of recently deployed US Marines compared to previously or never deployed Marines from the same Division.  Factors examined include combat exposure, number and recency of concussions, and symptoms of PTSD, Depression, Insomnia, and Persistent Postconcussive Symptoms.  Novel findings include the influence of multiple concussion on persistent postconcussive symptoms and functioning independent of that caused by PTSD or Depression; the impact of deployment on slowing cognitive function in general, and the relative benefits of simple reaction time versus more complex working memory assessments.
