Conference Presented by GSAPP and APA Division 51: Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinities

Up to 4 CE Hours for Psychologists
Instructional Level: Introductory

The Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity, Division 51 of the APA, advances knowledge in the psychology of men through research, education, training, public policy, and improved clinical practice. Research indicates that too often men do not seek out professionals for help and often do not stay in psychotherapy long enough to effect significant change. In addition, few colleges and universities offer coursework and/or applied experiences designed to train students and working professionals to meet the specific needs of men and boys receiving psychotherapy or other mental health services.

Anger is challenging to deal with both interpersonally and professionally. This workshop will provide clinicians with strategies for discerning anger modes as they surface in your clients in the treatment room such as the angry/enraged child, bullying adolescent, angry/defiantly detached protector, critic, and aggressive overcompensator. You will learn methods for effectively addressing them, including how to: "listen" for and recognize the signs of an angry bully, resentful adult, or childlike victim; and know how/when to allow for ventilation, empathically confront, or set limits.

3 BCBA/BCABA Continuing Ed. Credits

Instructional level: Introductory


The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) was established in 1998 with the mission to create a standard of training for individuals practicing behavior analysis. Since its inception, the number of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) have increased. There are over 28,000 people who currently hold the BCBA or BCBA-D credential. To accommodate the increased demand for BCBAs, training programs have sprung up across the country. With the increasing number of trainees working toward the credential, there is mounting pressure to ensure the quality of the training and coursework required for the credential. While the quality of the coursework can be fairly easy to monitor, the applied experience requirements can be more difficult to regulate. As the field of behavior analysis matures, it becomes imperative that evidence-based training procedures evolve as well. The purpose of the current workshop is to outline the current coursework and experiential requirements for obtaining the BCBA credential. Future changes to these criteria will also be discussed. Finally, evidence-based training strategies will be discussed.

Play is the language of the child. Attempting to assess and treat children in a primary talk therapy modality can be difficult for the client and the clinician. Play therapy is growing in popularity in the mental health professions, and is recognized as an effective means of addressing many developmental and psychological issues of children and adolescents. In this workshop, play and art techniques for assessment, intervention, and termination in individual, group and family therapy will be presented through lecture, experientially, and through case discussion. The presenter will discuss what the most basic play therapy materials needed are and provide cost-effective strategies for making or obtaining the basic tools. Participants will leave the workshop prepared with the information, enthusiasm, and confidence to start using play techniques immediately.
