“Introduction to Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy
(RO-DBT)”

University of Pittsburgh, 200 Lothrop Street, Room S120,
Pittsburgh, PA   15213
 
Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviors is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, such as refractory depression and anxiety, obsessive compulsive personality disorder, and anorexia nervosa.  The aim of this workshop is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) for disorders of overcontrol.

"Modern Day Ethics: Guns, Social Media and Clinical Dilemmas"

A three-hour ethics course

1:00 p.m. until 4:15 PM
(registration begins at 12:15 PM)

UPMC Herberman Conference Center, 5150 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15232
 
The Gun Talk: Assessing access to firearms is an essential part of any clinical assessment of suicide and violence risk yet it is a topic where most mental health professionals lack formal training. The Gun Talk provides a basic framework for firearm safety counseling. It is particularly tailored to recognize and adapt to possible differences in the values between professionals and patients and how to navigate those potential conflicts.
 
Risky Connections: Since inception, the internet has provided capacity for near-complete anonymity contrasted with incredibly intimate and detailed collections of personal information either accumulated by data mining systems or willingly shared through social media. the modern clinician must be aware of the risks and opportunities of connected care.
