Cultural Competency: Latina Immigrant Model of Non-Traditional Approaches to PMADS
Presented by Sherrie Segovia, PsyD
Course: #1055Level: Intermediate1 Hour
According to recent research and statistics, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD)s are highly prominent in the Latina immigrant community. Furthermore, it has been extremely difficult to identify PMADs and to offer traditional treatment protocols and interventions. Many cultural norms and socio-political and economic barriers influence the recognition of PMADs and access to services. This presentation will review various cultural beliefs and social barriers that prevent identification and treatment. Additionally, there will be a discussion about potentially effective and non-traditional approaches to working with vulnerable Latina clients. Finally, a proposal of culturally responsive models will be provided as a therapeutic framework.

ADHD in Young Children: Development and Diagnosis
Presented by Doug Tynan, PhD, ABPP
Course: #1043Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common behavioral diagnostic group in children and adolescents. Signs and symptoms emerge, in most cases, in the second year of life. However, all children are very active and tend to have short attention spans in the preschool years. Diagnosis must be carried out within the context of the range of typical behaviors at each age. Interventions also need to be age-appropriate. While ADHD is often referred to as a mental disorder, it may be far more useful to think of it as a developmental delay with intervention focused on the development of skills rather than the amelioration of a disorder.

Trauma Etiology & Posttraumatic Stress: Past & Present
Presented by Aaron Gillespie, PsyD
Course: #1035Level: Introductory2 Hours
This introductory course is designed to empower clinicians to more effectively identify the traumatic experiences that may be informing their client’s presenting concerns and to holistically conceptualize the impact those experiences may have had on their functioning. Towards those ends, it will introduce viewers to the current and historical sociopolitical contexts in which trauma and PTSD are understood, the range of experiences that may elicit an acute and/or posttraumatic response that go beyond “criterion A” events, the unique and shared symptoms presentations that may arise in vivo, the array of intra-and-interpersonal factors that both influence and protect against them, as well as the toll these experiences can have on an individual and their communities across the lifespan. The impetus for action laden within the material presented during this course, informed by the understanding viewers will develop regarding the now indisputable, holistic impact of trauma on the individual and our society, will function to highlight the need for interdisciplinary collaboration across the helping and medical professions to prevent and treat the consequences of trauma.
