Putting the Cardi B in CBT: Using Stars, Sports, Star Wars, Superheroes, and Pop Culture to Make Therapy Accessible & Fun for Anxious Youth
Presented by Sandra S. Pimentel, PhD
Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Cognitive behavioral treatment for youth anxiety is an effective intervention approach (Crowe & McKay, 2017). While manual-based approaches offer structure for the delivery of intervention strategies, there is ample room for flexibility to “breathe life” into the treatment (Kendall, Chu, & Gifford, 1998; Kendall, Gosch, Furr, & Sood, 2008). CBT components include, for example, psychoeducation, rapport-building, affective education, self-monitoring, cognitive restructuring, problem solving, somatic management, role play, modeling, skills rehearsal, behavioral experiments, exposure, reinforcement and rewards that require an understanding and integration cognitive and behavioral principles with development, family, culture, and multiple other relevant variables. This is no easy task! As such, and in working with children and adolescents in particular, CBT therapists are teachers, storytellers, coaches, collaborative empiricists, and producers as well who must utilize creativity and fun. In this webinar, the presenter will demonstrate how to use singers, sports, superhero narratives, and pop culture references to supercharge how to teach children and families about feelings, coping, and problem solving, and engage in practice and exposures. Clinical materials will also be shared with participants.
Distinguishing Suicidal Ideation from Intrusive Self-Harm OCD
Presented by Mike Heady, MA
Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Individuals suffering with intrusive self-harm OCD frequently misattribute their thoughts for genuine suicidal ideation. Well-intentioned therapists, who do not know how to differentiate genuine suicidal ideation from intrusive and unwanted obsessions, often encourage their clients to get suicide risk evaluations from local ERs. However, this behavior can steer the individual with self-harm OCD further into their disorder, increasing distress and severity of symptoms. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to assess for and differentiate intrusive, unwanted self-harm obsessions that occur in OCD from genuine suicidal ideation and planning. This differentiation is key to providing adequate treatment.
Just Announced! Race, Stress, and Black Mother and Infant Mortality: Emotional Health Matters
Presented by Angela Neal-Barnett, PhD and Christin Farmer Kane, BA
Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Within the United States, Black maternal and infant mortality has reached alarming rates. Black mothers and infants are 2.5 times more likely to die than their white counterparts. The major contributing factor is stress, particularly stress produced by structural racism. In this webinar led by a clinical psychological scientist and community-based doula, we present an overview of the role of race-related stress in Black maternal and infant mortality. We examine the psychosocial and biological data on its impact on mothers and babies. We present evidence on how stress is viewed by various groups of expectant and post-partum Black mothers. Barriers to implement stress and anxiety interventions with this population are discussed. Finally, we present data on our culturally-relevant community-engaged partnership to reduce the effects of stress and anxiety on expectant Black mothers.
Just Announced! Anxiety and Depression Treatment for Immigrant, Refugee, and Asylee Clients
Presented by Rachel Singer, PhD
Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
This webinar will provide an overview of strategies for integrating multiculturally competent strategies into evidence-based treatment of anxiety and depression for immigrants, refugees, and asylees. Specific tools for addressing barriers to treatment and incorporating resources will also be addressed. Discussion will focus on strategies for conceptualizing and treating clients from a systemic perspective. This training will also include case application and discussion of practical tools. Participants will have an opportunity for discussion and questions.

Briana Woods-Jaeger, PhD
“I became involved in ADAA in 2017 at the suggestion of colleagues who highlighted the balance between research and practice and opportunities for networking and collaboration. My first year I was immediately struck but just how true these sentiments are and how many opportunities there are to be actively engaged. I enjoy the opportunity to be a part of a thriving network of committed and engaged researchers, clinicians, and advocates. In particular, ADAA's interest in and commitment to diversity and multicultural issues has provided a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with others across the country committed to this important work. Being an ADAA member benefits my work by connecting me with amazing colleagues and providing a range of training and dissemination opportunities.”
Dr. Briana Woods-Jaeger is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education at Emory University. She received her PhD and MS in Clinical Child Psychology from the University of Washington. Dr. Woods-Jaeger's research examines social and structural processes that link the experience of child trauma and adversity to mental and physical health disparities. Her work focuses on partnering with communities to identify ways to prevent adverse childhood experiences and support different systems such as education, juvenile justice, and health care in responding to the needs of trauma-exposed youth. She is currently a Principal Investigator on research projects supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention focused on primary and secondary violence prevention and promoting resilience after violence exposure.

UT Southwestern Medical Center via EurekAlert!
Artificial intelligence may soon play a critical role in choosing which depression therapy is best for patients.
A national trial initiated by UT Southwestern in 2011 to better understand mood disorders has produced what scientists are calling the project's flagship finding: a computer that can accurately predict whether an antidepressant will work based on a patient's brain activity.
Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News
The results of research headed by scientists at Japan’s Fujita Health University suggest that a metabolite in the kynurenine pathway could represent a clinical biomarker for identifying individuals with depression-like symptoms who are at risk of developing major depressive disorder. The KYN pathway is the main pathway involved in tryptophan metabolism.

UPI Health News
Suicidal behavior is declining among U.S. teenagers who identify as LGBT, but the problem remains pervasive.
That's the conclusion of two new studies that tracked trends among U.S. teenagers over the past couple of decades. Over the years, more kids have been identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender -- and their likelihood of reporting suicidal thoughts and behavior has gone down.
UPI Health News
It's supposed to be the best time in your life, but a new study finds that U.S. high school students have mostly negative feelings throughout their school day.
Surveying nearly 22,000 students nationwide, researchers found about 75 percent expressed boredom, anger, sadness, fear or stress.
University of Warwick via ScienceDaily
Depression, anxiety, impulsive behavior and poor cognitive performance in children is affected by the amount of sleep they have, researchers from the University of Warwick have found.
Sleep states are active processes that support reorganisation of brain circuitry. This makes sleep especially important for children, whose brains are developing and reorganizing rapidly.
U.S. News & World Report
A vast majority of parents and caregivers don't know about their children's suicidal thoughts or actions, a new study suggests, even as family dynamics are linked to the dangerous behaviors.
For the study, published online in JAMA Network Open, researchers examined survey data on roughly 11,800 children as well as one of their caregivers to assess the prevalence of suicidal ideation, suicide attempts and non-suicidal self-injury among 9- and 10-year-olds.
UPI Health News
Nurses are at elevated risk for suicide, but the issue gets little attention, researchers report.
Their study of 2005-2016 U.S. government data found the suicide rate among female nurses was significantly higher, at 10 per 100,000, than that of the general female population, at seven per 100,000.
New data points to general anesthesia as a major cause of increased odds of mothers developing postpartum depression following a cesarean delivery.
Jean Guglielminotti, MD, PhD, Department of Anesthesiology, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, examined whether general anesthesia for cesarean delivery is linked with increased odds of severe postpartum depression requiring hospitalization compared to neuraxial anesthesia.
About one in five employees will experience a mental health condition each year, and because serious mental illness causes $193.2 billion in lost earnings each year, it’s a topic too big to be ignored by companies.
Employers who value and prioritize mental health can see the positive impact it has on employee retention, engagement, and health care costs. Which is why Mental Health America recently announced a new national employer certification program, called the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health, to help guide employers. The program assesses workplaces in five categories: workplace culture, health insurance and benefits, employee perks and programs, legal and ethical compliance and leadership and community engagement.
