Category: Domestic Violence

Presenter: Rebecca Vazquez, PhD, LAC, NCC

4 Domestic Violence CE credits for Psychologists
Instructional level: Intermediate

This workshop includes brief historical, political, and cultural perspectives on domestic violence against women as well as the current state of this issue. Following this overview, we discuss various forms of violence against women that impact their emotional, physical, and psychological well-being. Although the content of this workshop are not exhaustive, the hope is to provide participants with a fundamental knowledge of how domestic violence has manifested throughout society and how to approach survivors using a trauma-informed, intersectional, clinical framework. Finally, vicarious trauma and self-care will be discussed, along with how to promote posttraumatic growth in clients will be discussed.

Since 1980, official psychiatric taxonomies have implicitly grappled with research problems more than clinical challenges. The 2006 and 2017 editions of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, based on both empirical research and clinical scholarship and intended to complement the DSM and ICD, were international projects oriented toward therapists. Despite its origins in psychodynamic psychology, clinicians of other orientations have found the PDM useful. The manual construes problems dimensionally and contextually rather than categorically, addresses the subjective experiences of patients and therapists, includes attention to diversity, and considers the possible meanings of known syndromes. It addresses psychological issues developmentally, in adults, adolescents, children, infants, and the elderly, respectively. This workshop will familiarize participants with the PDM and its clinical applications.

Instructional level: Introductory 

Mindfulness Practice is often defined as the process of paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.  We all have this innate capacity to be aware of what is happening within us and around us. However, this present-centered awareness is often overshadowed by our habits of judging our experience, worrying about the future or re-working the past and becoming desensitized to the body’s wisdom.

Child study team evaluations have traditionally focused on the determination of eligibility using the ability-discrepancy and response to intervention criteria sanctioned by the special education code. However, current science in the form of CHC theory explains the flaws in these approaches and offers a best practice model, the patterns of strengths and weaknesses, that not only offers a more accurate way to diagnose learning disabilities, but also bridges the gap between assessment and instruction that has developed when eligibility is the sole goal of testing.
