The Proper Focus of Evidence-Based Practice.  Hollan, Ph.D; Bruce E Wampold, Ph.D; Michael J Lambert, Ph.D,  Arthur C. Bohart, Ph.D; Larry E Beutler, PH.D; John C. Norcross, Ph.D., Leon Vandecreetk, Ph.D., Chair, Abe Wolf, Ph.D, Editor  August 30, 2008  What is the proper focus of evidence-based practice? Is it the treatment method, the psychotherapy relationship, the client as self-active healer, or principles based on the preponderance of evidence from the process-outcome research? In this program, five preeminent psychotherapy researchers advocate for these positions. A discussion by an expert in the area of psychotherapy integration emphasizes the need for methodological pluralism in understanding these different perspectives and a realistic stance when thinking about theory in the light of third-party reimbursement.   This symposium was organized by the Division of Psychotherapy for the 2005 annual convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington D.C. It is based on the 2006 book Evidence-based practices in mental health: Debate and dialogue on the fundamental questions edited by John C. Norcross, Larry E. Beutler, and APA past-president Ron F. Levant 4 credits

Clinical Health Psychology Institute-Expanding Psychology Practice to Primary Health Care- Evidence, Skills and Issue by Alexander Blount, Ed.D, William Gunn, Ph.D., Christopher Hunter, Ph.D. ABPP, Barry Nierenberg, Ph.D., ABPP, Barbara B Walker, Ph.D. Organized by Rodger S Kessler, Ph.D., ABPP, 8/24/2008. On August 9, 2006, a one day program entitled Expanding Psychology Practice to Primary Health Care; Evidence Skills and Issues was held prior to the APA’s Convention in New Orleans. There is much written and discussed concerning psychology integrating into medicine, but practical knowledge has been difficult to obtain. The focus this course, modeled on the program, is identification of key knowledge in the Integration of Psychology and Medicine. It includes specific workshops designed to teach skills necessary to implement evidenced-based assessment and interventions to medical patients.  7 credits

 

Antidepressant Treatment Update:  Integration of Psychopharmacology and CBT by James M. Meredith Ph.D. and John F. Drozd, Ph.D.  This intermediate workshop presented practical information for practicing psychologist about the effects of common antidepressants, how to best explain these medications and their effects to patients, and how to employ cognitive-behavioral principles and practices to enhance pharmacotherapy. The antidepressant teaching is based on understanding the division of antidepressant into seven classes according to their neurotransmitter effects. Once the seven classes are recognized, it is possible to have a logical approach to selection of a particular antidepressant based on the side effect profile of the class to which it belongs.  In addition, practitioners learned to identify medical issues, medication side effects, and drug effects that can produce depressive symptoms and practical outcome measures to rack and modify treatment.  4 credits

 

Proceedings from the 2006 Convention:  Evidence-Based Group Treatments for Survivors of Catastrophic Trauma by Shirley Glynn, Ph.D., Barbara Niles, Ph.D., William Unger, Ph.D., and Melissa Wattenberg, Ph.D.  This intermediate workshop on group therapy for survivors of psychological trauma, two manual treatments were presented: trauma focus group therapy (TFGT), a behavioral model incorporating skills-building and trauma exposure; and present-centered group therapy (PCGT), a supportive approach informed by schema therapy. Demonstration, didactics, and discussion center on group interventions for specific PTSD symptoms clusters, as well as trauma-based attitudes, beliefs, and feelings. Application to recent trauma (e.g., war, terrorism, natural disaster) emphasized adjustment issues, reintegration into community, and depathologizing of distress.  Participants learned to detail the rational for and the core components of trauma focus group treatment for PTSD, detail the rational for the core components of present centered group treatment for PTSD, articulate key considerations for the appropriate and staging of PTST treatment, and specify at least three strategies for addressing common group treatment for PTSD implementation impediments.  September 2008 4 credits

Mirna I. Vrbancic, Ph.D  and Ashfaq Shuaib, M.D. from the Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, SK, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB The Effects of Cerebrovascular Disease on Cognition, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002.  This workshop was intended to provide 1-participants with pertinent information on the pathophysiological bases of clinical presentation of stroke and its risk factors, 2-currently available technologies to evaluate the differential diagnosis of stroke (i.e. transient ischemic attack, lacunarstroke, completed stroke, emobilic and subarachnoid hemorrhage, 3-underlying etiologies of stoke, 4-the neuropsychological and behavior data characterizing the various presentation of stoke, 5-recent advances in the management and prevention of stroke (i.e., antiplatelets, TPA and neuroprotection), 6-clincial outcome neuropsychological Research findings following some of the most frequently employed treatments for management of vascular disease and prevision of stroke (i.e. Carotid endarterectomy, coronary bypass, stents and hypothermia).  They workshop ended with a summary discussion on preventive management of stroke, including the most efficacious techniques now being employed to improve recovery from stroke, and the long term management of the neuropsychological behavioral sequaelae of stroke.

 

George P. Prigatano, Ph.D., Newil H. Pliskin, Ph.D., Lorie A Humphrey, Ph.D., & Christian A. Meyers, Ph.D.   Clinical Neuropsychology and Cost Outcome, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002.  Neuropsychologists are being increasingly called upon to demonstrate the value of their services.  This workshop introduced clinical neuropsychologists to the concepts and challenges involved in conducting cost outcome research.  It provided examples of how such research can be conducted with patients with malignant brain tumors, children with learning disabilities and patients suffering from cerebrovascular accidents.  It will review the clinical utility of various neuropsychological services and introduced the concept of “objective” and “subjective’ markers of value when studying cost effectiveness in neuropsychology.  It will also provide examples of how clinical neuropsychological services of different patient populations may reduce “costs” and increase “benefits”.  The workshop was based on the recently published book:  Clinical Neuropsychology and Cost Outcome Research:  A Beginning, which is the first book of the National Academy of Neuropsychology book series entitled, Neuropsychology:  Scientific Basis and Clinical Applications.

 

Elsa G. Shapiro, PhD.  Childhood Dementia, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002  New treatments for certain childhood diseases causing neurodegeneration have focused attention on childhood dementia.  The time course of dementia in childhood is fundamentally different than adults because of developmental change.  Lack of knowledge regarding the natural history of the cognitive decline in untreated children with neurodegenerative diseases makes evaluating the effects of children with neurodegenerative diseases makes evaluating the effects of intervention on developmental trajectories challenging.  Topics included defining childhood dementia, white mater disease in children and neuropsychological correlates; effects of age, localization and stage of disease on neuropsychological function:  MRI, and MRS findings, early detection; measuring effects of treatment; and description of specific neurodegenerative syndromes in children.  In addition, new biological treatments will be discussed as well as educational, psychological and rehabilitative interventions. The focus was on what childhood neurodegenerative diseases can teach about normal and abnormal development.

 

Ronald M. Ruff, Ph.D. Ruff-Light Trail Learning Test, National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002  Most neuropsychological test batteries include a measure for verbal learning. Why is it not equally important to evaluate visuospatial memory?  The Ruff-Light Trail Learning Test (RULIT) was developed to capture visuospatial learning and memory without the confines of relying on drawing skills, keen eyesight or good motor control. The patient is asked to learn a 15-step pathway.  Normative data are available for adults between the ages of 16 and 70 years, stratified according to education.  Two matched test versions were reviewed. Clinical data has demonstrated the unique application of the different test components for learning, immediate memory and delayed memory. The RULIT’s factorial validity has been compared to attention, memory and executive functioning in both the verbal and visuospatial modes. 

The RULIT is sensitive to right hemisphere functioning and thus is a clinically relevant test for diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

 

David B. Arciniegas, M.D.  Neuropsychiatry of Temporolimbic Disorders.  National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002 The cardinal features of temporolimbic dysfunction are disturbances in emotion, behavior, cognition and physical functions (e.g. seizures). The task of understanding temporolimbic functioning and anatomy is challenging, as these functions and their neurobiological basis are extraordinary complex. This workshop provided a review of temporal limbic functions and disorders.  Recent advances in the basic and clinical neurosciences regarding the neurobiological foundations of emotion and temporolimbically-mediated cognition and behavior was discussed.  Based on these findings a conceptual framework within which temporolimbic disorders and their treatments may be usefully understood were offered.  Illustrative case examples were presented, and audience members were invited to contribute their own cases to the discussion.

Gordon, J. Chelune, Ph.D.  Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH.  Multiple Sclerosis and Neuropsychology.  National Academy of Neuropsychology, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002   Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common cause of chronic neurological disability among young adults typically beginning between the ages of 20 and 40 and affecting woman more often than men.  Pathologically, MS is characterized by areas of delineations and perivascular inflammation in the white mater of the CNS.  This session reviewed the demographic characteristics of MS, current diagnostic criteria, viral and autoimmune concepts of MS pathophysiology, the role of neuroimaging, and advances in disease-modifying treatments.  Because MS predominantly affects young adults during their most productive years, special attention was given to the role that neuropsychological assessment plays in the management of the psychosocial and economic needs of the MS patient. Strategies for assessing the cognitive functions of patients with MS and the use of base rate information were discussed within the context of clinical case material.

 

Tulsky, Ph.D., Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation, West Orange, NJ.  Integrating the WAIS-III and WMS-II.  National Academy of Neuropsychology, Lowes Miami Beach Hotel, Miami, FL, 3 credits, October, 2002  This workshop wove together historical events in cognitive testing with new advances and models for using the WAIS-III and WMS-III in practice.  Attendees learned about how these commonly used instruments were derived and how little have changed over time. The co-norming methodology that was used with the WASI-III and WMS-III afforded a wealth of data and has allowed new modifications in the way these scales can be used in practice. A new six factor model of cognitive functioning has been developed and new norms have been created.  New research on discrepancy analyses, demographic adjusted scores, serial testing, score proration and subtest substitution, and testing the bilingual examinee were reviewed as well as other new research that has appeared since the scales were published. A theme of the workshop was that though the field has seen little change in testing practices over the last 100 years, these new procedures can improve clinical practice. The workshop ended with a discussion of the new advances that might be on the horizon for cognitive assessment.
