    ¡Que Padre! An Intersectional, Strengths-Based Lens on Research and Practice with New Latino Fathers - 1.5 CEs
    Daniel Singley, Ph.D. ABPP & Jonathan Marquez, Ph.D.

    Quality father involvement during early childhood is associated with positive social (e.g., prosocial skills; Lindsey, Cremeens, & Caldera, 2010), emotional (e.g., self-regulation, externalizing behaviors; Paquette & Dumont, 2013; Ramchandani et al., 2013), and cognitive (e.g., executive function; Bronte-Tinkew, Carrano, Horowitz, & Kinukawa, 2008; Meuwissen & Englund, 2016) outcomes for children. Variations in father involvement due to child, familial, societal, and cultural factors indicate the need for further attention given to diverse groups of fathers (Cabrera, Hofferth, & Chae, 2011). Father involvement is known to vary by child, familial, societal, and cultural factors, emphasizing the need for further research with specific populations of fathers, including Latino fathers. Addressing this need, we examined the psychometric properties of a multidimensional measurement of father involvement with infants, the Paternal Involvement with Infants Scale (PIWIS), with Latino fathers of infants. We will review findings from our program of research regarding paternal mental health and involvement with infants and partners through the lens of feminist intersectionality. We will also review our research findings regarding the use of hope theory and assessment with Latino fathers as a means to enhance participants’ awareness of the nuanced issues and strengths during the transition to fatherhood.

    Understanding Mechanisms that are Associated with Increased Health Risks for African Americans - 1.5 CEs
    Ezemanari M. Obasi, Ph.D.

    African Americans are disproportionately exposed to chronic stress by way of high levels of racism, discrimination, violence, crime, neighborhood disorganization, unemployment, financial strain, and low-to-no socioeconomic status. Furthermore, they tend to lead the nation in their lack of access to health insurance, healthcare facilities, safe green space, and high-quality nutrition. Persistent exposure to chronic stress causes ‘wear-and-tear’ on the body’s regulatory system and compromises its capacity to effectively recover from incessant exposure to environmental stressors. The dysregulated stress response – combined with the lack of resources to transcend this public-health crises – places African Americans at-risk for disproportionate levels of substance use, mental health challenges, and associated outcomes like violence (e.g., homicide, suicide, child abuse, and domestic violence), injuries (e.g., crashes, falls, burns, and drowning), and health disparities (e.g., asthma, cancers, chronic liver disease, diabetes, gastritis, hypertension, meningitis, myocardial infarction, obesity, pancreatitis, stroke, STDs, etc.). The purpose of this course is to provide an intermediate introduction into understanding mechanisms that are associated with increased health risks and outcomes for African Americans. More specifically, it will (1) provide a summary of health disparities experienced in the African American community; (2) describe biological mechanisms that predict health risks and outcomes; (3) detail root causes of the social determinants of health; (4) review cultural predictors of health behaviors; and (5) identify ways in which psychologists can advance health equity science and disease prevention. Given the intersectionality between today’s COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment rates, and the racial awakening taking hold in the U.S., it is imperative for psychologists to leverage their disciplinary expertise and advance cutting-edge health-equity science that informs novel prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and intervention strategies that mitigate a broad range of health challenges experienced by members of the African American community.

    A Crisis of Access to Service:  A New Specialty and the Advancement of Prescriptive Authority for Psychologists - 1.5 CEs
    Alan Lincoln, Ph.D., MSCP, BCBA-D & Judi Steinman Ph.D.

    This course is designed to educate participants about severe mental health disparities that adversely affect blacks, Latinos, the poor, children, the elderly and persons with developmental disabilities (Kim et al., 2017). More specifically, will address disparities relative to a shrinking pool of psychiatric providers (McBain et al., 2019) and a shift toward the prescription of psychoactive medications by nonpsychiatric physicians with minimal training in mental health.  Scope of practice legislation that allow specialty trained psychologists (Lincoln. 2018, APA, 2019 and Brown et al., in press) is an essential ingredient in helping to narrow the problem to access to service experienced by these minority groups.

    The Ethnohistoric Legacy of Slavery in America as a Root Cause of Health Inequities for African Americans and Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD) - 1.5 CEs
    Rodney G. Hood, MD, FACP

    African Americans suffer the greatest health inequities / disparities of all ethnic groups in US and these disparities cannot entirely be explained by the usual social determinants of health (SDOH) such as social-economic status, geography, education, health access, health quality, or life styles. Although these SDOH are critical contributors to one’s health status and health disparities these factors do not completely explain the level of disparities for African Americans. This presentation will highlight data and research that shows how a life time of discrimination in association with ethnohistoric social inequities, epigenetics related to slavery, post-slavery policies such as Jim Crow laws, and a discriminatory racialized culture collectively caused chronic life time toxic stresses - Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) and allostatic loads. These unique toxic stresses serve as significant contributors to racial and ethnic health disparities resulting in disproportionate high chronic disease burdens and early death for African Americans.

    Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome - 2 CEs
    Joy DeGruy, Ph.D.

    The Theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome suggest that centuries of slavery followed by systemic racism and oppression have resulted in multigenerational adaptive behaviors - some of which have been positive and reflective of resilience, and other that are detrimental and destructive.

    In brief, Dr DeGruy presents facts, statistics and documents that illustrate how varying levels of both clinically induced and socially learned veridical stress related issues were passed along through generations as a result of slavery.

    1:00 pm – 2:30 pm  

    Racial Trauma and African-American Men - 1.5 CEs
    Yamonte Cooper, Ed.D., LPCC, NCC, CST

    Ava DuVernay’s recent Netflix series When They See Us illuminates the story of the innocent Black men once known as the Central Park Five. The series explores the gendered anti-Black racism, disposability, and dehumanization that Black men such as George Floyd commonly experience and the resulting trauma. Further, getting killed by police is a leading cause of death for young Black men in America. Trauma as a result of racism is a normative experience for many African-American men. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM–5; American Psychiatric Association, 2013), “There is evidence that racism can exacerbate many psychiatric disorders, contributing to poor outcome, and that racial biases can affect diagnostic assessment” (p. 749). Growing empirical research has provided evidence that racism has a causal link to trauma which can have a negative influence on the mental, emotional, and physical health of African-American men. African-Americans who experienced racism are significantly more likely to experience symptoms of PTSD. Recent research suggests that multiple levels of racism, including interpersonal experiences of racial discrimination and the internalization of negative racial bias, operate jointly to accelerate biological aging among African-American men.

    This workshop is designed to provide clinicians with a comprehensive understanding of racial trauma and African-American men. Interventions in mental health will be closely examined so that mental health professionals will be able to assist African-American men suffering from racialized trauma.

    2:30 pm – 3:00 pm Break 

    3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

    Culture Specific Models of Service Delivery & Practice - 2 CEs
    Joy DeGruy, Ph.D.

    The presentation will provide tools and evidence based methods for engaging the African American community at three levels of service, (Individual, Family and Community).

    While the salient symptoms of disease and distress in individuals are for the most part applicable across cultures, this is not always the case. Additionally, many people of color particularly African Americans, do not seek out health assistance. National trends in health revealed that many ethnic groups lacked knowledge about many health issues and were generally distrustful of European American health providers.  Many were reluctant to reveal health issues fearing that they would be negatively stigmatized or harmed by those from whom they were seeking help. This course/presentation provides evidence based methods and approaches for engaging African American children, youth and adults.

    Assessing Psychological Impact of Trauma in Victims of Domestic Violence, Violent Crimes, or Human Trafficking - 4 CEs 

    Presented by Dr. Mariela Shibley

    Friday, October 23, 2020
    9:00 am - 1:00 pm
    CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

    Under the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), victims of battery or extreme cruelty committed by a spouse or certain family members may be eligible to become a lawful permanent resident (get a Green Card).

    Victims of certain crimes or human trafficking who have suffered psychological or physical harm and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity may qualify for a U or T nonimmigrant status (U visa or T visa).

    A psychological evaluation can be extremely helpful for the adjudicator to understand the psychological impact of abuse and trauma and the short-and long-term effects it can cause. The opinion of a mental health expert is often a determining factor for whether a petition will be approved or denied.

    Learn how you can contribute to helping some of the most vulnerable undocumented immigrants rebuild their lives in the aftermath of trauma.

      LECTURE #2

      Reconnection: The Sexual Health Needs of Pre-Menopausal Breast Cancer Survivors

      Presenters:  Cheryl Fisher, PhD, NCC, LCMHC, LCPC, ACS and Heather Lamb, RN, MSN, FNP-C

      OCT 23
      10am


      According to the American Cancer Society (2020), 26,393 women under the age of 45 are impacted by breast cancer annually. Treatments include mastectomies and oophorectomies resulting in infertility, and the administration of medications that catapult young women into early menopause. Even with reconstructive surgery, patients are left with decreased neurological sensation. Struggling with body image, decreased libido and little follow up around sexual health, young women and their partners experience isolation from, and collapse of their relationships. Dr. Cheryl Fisher, Director of the Online MA in Clinical Counseling Program, and Oncology Nurse Practitioner, Heather Lamb will examine the physical, psychological and social implications of breast cancer treatment on sexual health. As sensual and sexual beings, sexual health is an integral part of the human experience and overall life satisfaction. Based on their research and case studies, presenters will provide practical ways that clinicians can identify, validate, and advocate for the sexual health of breast cancer survivors.

        (Note: if you want to get 20% off sign up for the full conference go back to events and look for full conference registration.)

        This course is designed to educate participants about severe mental health disparities that adversely affect blacks, Latinos, the poor, children, the elderly and persons with developmental disabilities (Kim et al., 2017). More specifically, will address disparities relative to a shrinking pool of psychiatric providers (McBain et al., 2019) and a shift toward the prescription of psychoactive medications by nonpsychiatric physicians with minimal training in mental health.  Scope of practice legislation that allow specialty trained psychologists (Lincoln. 2018, APA, 2019 and Brown et al., in press) is an essential ingredient in helping to narrow the problem to access to service experienced by these minority groups. 

        Learning Objectives

        1.    Participants will identify three reasons for health disparities in certain minority groups relative to access of trained mental health prescribers.

        2.    Participants will demonstrate the ability to describe the training in psychopharmacology as it pertains to a new specialty area within psychology as of 2020

        3.    Participants will demonstrate the ability to describe how specialty training in clinical psychopharmacology is consistent with current licensing law in California.

        4.    Participants will demonstrate the ability to recount how specialty training and the success of a California scope of practice law for prescriptive authority could help reduce the severe shortage of qualified prescribers.

        Course Level: Intermediate

        Target Audience:  Licensed psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physicians, graduate students in psychology, Allied Mental Health Professionals

        Systemic Racism's Bitter Pill: A closer look at Health Disparities

        The Ethnohistoric Legacy of Slavery in America as a Root Cause of Health Inequities for African Americans and Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD)

        Presented by

        Rodney G. Hood, MD, FACP

        1.5 CEs

        October 23, 2020
        3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
        Live Webinar


        INDIVIDUAL COURSE ONLY

        (Note: if you want to get 20% off sign up for the full conference go back to events and look for full conference registration.)

        African Americans suffer the greatest health inequities / disparities of all ethnic groups in US and these disparities cannot entirely be explained by the usual social determinants of health (SDOH) such as social-economic status, geography, education, health access, health quality, or life styles. Although these SDOH are critical contributors to one’s health status and health disparities these factors do not completely explain the level of disparities for African Americans. This presentation will highlight data and research that shows how a life time of discrimination in association with ethnohistoric social inequities, epigenetics related to slavery, post-slavery policies such as Jim Crow laws, and a discriminatory racialized culture collectively caused chronic life time toxic stresses - Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) and allostatic loads. These unique toxic stresses serve as significant contributors to racial and ethnic health disparities resulting in disproportionate high chronic disease burdens and early death for African Americans.

        Learning Objectives

        1.  Describe the origins and history of racism in US health system.

        2.  Describe  the difference between Equality vs Equity.

        3.  Identifying how a combination of Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) and chronic stress referred to as allostatic load are root causes of health inequities leading to chronic diseases.

        4. Identifying the chronic toxic stress and the relationship to racial and ethnic health disparities especially with African Americans.

        5.  Demonstration - A case study of a patient with Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD).

        Course Level: Intermediate

        Target Audience:  All behavioral health providers, physicians, students, and researchers.

        Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) is a theory that explains the etiology of many of the adaptive survival behaviors in African American communities throughout the United States and the Diaspora. It is a condition that exists as a consequence of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants resulting from centuries of chattel slavery. A form of slavery which was predicated on the belief that African Americans were inherently/genetically inferior to whites. This was then followed by institutionalized racism which continues to perpetuate injury. A thorough examination of this history of racial trauma will be presented and discussed.


        Learning Objectives

        • Describe the cultural ethical issues related to differing assessment intervention strategies for working with African Americans.
        • Explain the role that trauma, racial socialization, and respect play in current issues of African American youth violence.
        • Examine culturally appropriate interventions for work with African American individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.
        • Apply the Theory of Triadic influence (TTI) to practice with individuals, families and communities. 
        • Identify necessary tools to begin to adapt the information to implement change strategies and approaches. 


        Course Level: Intermediate/Advanced

        Target Audience:  

        Licensed Psychologists, Undergraduate and Graduate Psychology & Social Work Students and Allied Mental Health Professionals, Community Members, Community Based Organizations that provide mental health or, other social services to African American children, Youth and Adults.

        Systemic Racism's Bitter Pill: A closer look at Health Disparities

        Racial Trauma and African-American Men

        Presented by
        Yamonte Cooper, Ed.D., LPCC, NCC, CST

        1.5 CEs

        October 24, 2020

        INDIVIDUAL COURSE ONLY

        (Note: if you want to get 20% off sign up for the full conference go back to events and look for full conference registration.)

        Ava DuVernay’s recent Netflix series When They See Us illuminates the story of the innocent Black men once known as the Central Park Five. The series explores the gendered anti-Black racism, disposability, and dehumanization that Black men such as George Floyd commonly experience and the resulting trauma. Further, getting killed by police is a leading cause of death for young Black men in America. Trauma as a result of racism is a normative experience for many African-American men. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM–5; American Psychiatric Association, 2013), “There is evidence that racism can exacerbate many psychiatric disorders, contributing to poor outcome, and that racial biases can affect diagnostic assessment” (p. 749). Growing empirical research has provided evidence that racism has a causal link to trauma which can have a negative influence on the mental, emotional, and physical health of African-American men. African-Americans who experienced racism are significantly more likely to experience symptoms of PTSD. Recent research suggests that multiple levels of racism, including interpersonal experiences of racial discrimination and the internalization of negative racial bias, operate jointly to accelerate biological aging among African-American men.

        This workshop is designed to provide clinicians with a comprehensive understanding of racial trauma and African-American men. Interventions in mental health will be closely examined so that mental health professionals will be able to assist African-American men suffering from racialized trauma.

        Learning Objectives

        1. Identify four types of trauma that potentially impacts African-American men. 

        2. Analyze two ways that race-based traumatic stress is potentially experienced by African-American men. 

        3. Name two coping mechanisms that African-American men commonly deploy to navigate racist experiences.

        Course Level: Introductory

        Target Audience:  Licensed psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physicians, graduate students in psychology, Allied Mental Health Professionals

        The presentation will provide tools and evidence based methods for engaging the African American community at three levels of service, (Individual, Family and Community).

        While the salient symptoms of disease and distress in individuals are for the most part applicable across cultures, this is not always the case. Additionally, many people of color particularly African Americans, do not seek out health assistance. National trends in health revealed that many ethnic groups lacked knowledge about many health issues and were generally distrustful of European American health providers.  Many were reluctant to reveal health issues fearing that they would be negatively stigmatized or harmed by those from whom they were seeking help. This course/presentation provides evidence based methods and approaches for engaging African American children, youth and adults. 

        Learning Objectives

        1. Select and apply strategies to enhance empowerment for African American populations at risk, and to promote economic and social justice.

        2. Analyze relevant concepts of the Relationship Approach and the Philosophical Aspect of cultural difference as a basis for understanding the reasons African American individuals and families behave the way they do within their social/cultural environments.

        3. Describe how to involve community residents, professionals, and family members in change strategies aimed at policy and organizational change.

        4. Apply trauma theory and literature for relevance in working with people of color.

        5. Assess the role that social learning theory and learned helplessness has played in the adaptive behaviors of African Americans.

        Course Level: Intermediate/Advanced

        Target Audience:  

        Licensed Psychologists, Undergraduate and Graduate Psychology & Social Work Students and Allied Mental Health Professionals, Community Members, Community Based Organizations that provide mental health or, other social services to African American children, Youth and Adults.

        Immigration Evaluations Training: Evaluating Hardship for Waivers of Inadmissibility - 4 CEs 

        Presented by Dr. Mariela Shibley

        Friday, November 6, 2020
        9:00 am - 1:00 pm
        CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

        Immigration waivers allow a non-citizen or foreign national to seek to have a ground of inadmissibility waived in order to be lawfully admitted to the United States. In order to do this, the applicant must file a waiver of inadmissibility. There are different types of waivers: some can be filed while the applicant is in the United States, while some others are filed as part of a consular process for filers abroad.

        Psychological evaluations may play a crucial role in determining eligibility and favorable discretion, ultimately keeping families together. Learn how to conduct thorough psychological evaluations and detailed reports while expanding the scope of your practice to include this valuable and lucrative service!
