Class A

Examining Mood Disorder from a Biopsychosocial Model among Women who Identify as BIPOC

The workshop will provide the attendees with an interactive discussion that will include an overview of the Biopsychosocial Model as part of a comprehensive health assessment and treatment model. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the World Health Organization's (WHO) suggestion for comprehensive evaluations using the Biopsychosocial Model as the tool. Such will be applied explicitly to building an assessment of Mood Disorders among Black Women. Research postulates that mood-related difficulties and cardiovascular are interconnected and remain higher for Black women compared to other groups. There is a need to understand the impact of unique and potential generational stressors on health outcomes experienced by women who identify as BIPOC. Such could aid in reducing health disparities maintained in 2024 and beyond. 

Trainer: Eugena Griffin, Ph.D. received her degree in Clinical-Community Psychology from the University of South Carolina (USC) in 2008 and obtained licensure as a Clinical Psychologist in the state of New York in 2010. As a Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Griffin provides comprehensive assessments and psychotherapy to impoverished and disenfranchised children, adolescents, and adults presenting with mild to severe mental health concerns. Dr. Griffin continues to engage in health disparity research as a means to further examine the racism-coping phenomena among BIPOC in America. She holds a tenured-Associate Professor of Psychology position at City University of New York where she provides instruction and mentorship to a diverse undergraduate student population. She is the author of the books, Letters to the Black Community and The Steps I Took: How My Journey to Success Can Help Guide Your Success.

Class B

Funding: The Fifth Component of Social Work

The old saying is that an army runs on its stomach. Likewise, programming and treatment require resources to occur, to be implemented. Regardless of the line items, the unifying element for all of these is the funding that pays for it. Hence, the fifth component of Social Work is Funding.

The search for funding actually requires that one understand and have developed and written about program, background and experience, and even the more mundane tasks to operate any type of social work practice. Hence, understanding that there is an extra Social Work component and how it acts as an organizer for the others will put practitioners in good stead moving forward.

Trainer: Nathaniel Warshay, MA, LBSW, has worked for more than two decades in the nonprofit sector in organizational development, including accreditation, strategic planning (and implementation), program development, inter-agency networking and coalition building, and developing and implementing qualitative and quantitative research studies. He has helped some 10,000 people move from homelessness and housing insecurity to permanent homes, and developed wrap-around supportive services programs. He has helped raise more than $98 million for homelessness and other human services programs, academic excellence, healthcare and medical research, capital grants, and community development. Nathaniel has worked both sides of the grants table, having recommended approximately $63 million for funding awards.

02:00 PM to 05:00 PM EST

Cannabis Induced Psychosis: Recent Trends in Cannabis Use

Cannabis ranks as the second most commonly used substance nationwide, trailing only tobacco and alcohol (NIH). Approximately 16 million Americans report regular cannabis use (NIH), with the majority initiating use during their teenage years (NIH). The broad legalization of marijuana has brought about challenges, with a failure to address increased toxicity and adverse effects on early teens and young adults. Notably, there has been a marked rise in cannabis-related hospitalizations for anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis, causing significant concern.

Trainer: John Puls, LCSW, MCAP is a licensed clinical social worker and master’s certified addiction professional in the state of Florida.

Evening Sessions

6:00 PM to 9:00 PM EST

Class A

Treating Impulsive, Addictive, And Self-Destructive Behaviors

Clients with impulsive and addictive behaviors often have trouble engaging in treatment, completing home-practice, and/or attending sessions regularly. As a result, treatment outcomes are often disappointing, and drop-out rates are high. To address these issues, Mindfulness and Modification Therapy (MMT; Wupperman, 2019) offers time- and cost-effective strategies for helping clients break free from dysregulated behavior. MMT integrates key elements from Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and other evidence-based approaches. Preliminary trials of MMT have shown decreases in alcohol use, drug use, binge eating, and verbal/physical aggression in both self-referred and court-referred clients. Case studies have shown decreases in trichotillomania, skin picking, compulsive shopping, and other dysregulated behaviors.

Trainer: Peggilee Wupperman, PhD, is a Psychology Professor at John Jay College and an Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale Medical School. She has authored numerous journal articles and the award-winning book, “Treating Impulsive, Addictive, and Self-Destructive Behaviors: Mindfulness and Modification Therapy.” She conducts trainings for mental-health professionals across the nation.
