    The pace at which the health and financial consequences of COVID19 have pervaded society has left us in an overwhelming state of stress. Science and medicine have generated theories that normally are tested over time, but the precipitous climb of mortality and morbidity left us scrambling for answers and hanging our hopes on treatments that ultimately proved ineffective or in some cases hazardous. This presentation will parse out the scientific facts from theory regarding neurological sequelae of COVID19 exposure and how medications prescribed for mental health conditions may interact with treatments used for COVID19.

Topics will include factors that lead to risk for substance use, evidence-based mental health interventions, public health risks, special education transitions, sexuality, and social and recreational programming.

    Pay is based on a percentage of earnings directly attributed to the provider’s work, making the position very flexible in terms of number of hours desired and preferred schedule. The practice is largely cash-based, so there are very low demands for non-billable time. This is a new position being created within an existing neuropsychology practice and can begin as soon as April 2020.

    Cover letter of interest and cv should be sent to Kendra Bryant, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, Neuropsychology and Concussion Management Associates (NCMA) PO Box 1145, Rockport, ME 04856 or to DrBryant@NCMAmaine.com

    ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY

    Presenters: Richard Lewis, LCPC and Teresa Valliere, LCSW, LADC, CCS

    Thursday and Friday: Feb 27 & 28, 2020, 8:30am - 4:30pm

    Woodfords Club,179 Woodford Street,Portland, ME 04103

    12 CEUS          $179

    Clients get stuck; helpers get stuck with them.  They get stuck in their feelings, thoughts, stories and repetitive behavioral patterns, called psychological rigidity. Persistent psychological rigidity can be seen as the core of most mental disorders.  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) views clients as stuck rather than sick and occasional psychological rigidity and experiential avoidance as a part of the human condition.  ACT is an accepted evidenced based practice helping clients with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioral difficulties. It combines the wisdom and effectiveness of mindfulness practices and behavioral activation.   Integrating ACT into your practice, you can help your clients to:

    Unhook from negative/harmful thoughts

    Be more present

    Accept what cannot be changed

    Focus on what’s most important in their lives

    Take committed action toward their values

    Have a kinder and more realistic view of themselves

    Using a combination of didactic presentation and experiential exercises, this workshop will introduce ACT model, philosophy and core concepts of psychological rigidity and flexibility.  Attendees will leave this training with a basic understanding of ACT approaches and with specific interventions they can employ immediately.  This workshop is a combination of didactic material, individual reflections, group discussion, and experiential activities. 

    Target Audience: Mental and Behavioral Health Professionals, Social Workers, Psychologists, Physicians, Nurses, Therapists, Counseling Staff, Alcohol and Drug Counselors, and clinical staff in mental health, substance abuse, co-occurring, behavioral or health settings.
