Session A
A Multidisciplinary Model of Treatment for Managing Adult Obesity: Integrating Scientific Evidence into Practical Weight Management Strategies
Julie Cappella, Psy.D. and Marilou Shaughnessy, Psy.D.

Drs. Cappella and Shaughnessy will review the latest research on treatment for adult obesity and explain the complexities of working with this population, including prevalence of medical and mental health comorbidities, psychosocial stressors, and higher likelihood of trauma. These issues impact treatment and often interfere with the patient's motivation and maintenance of healthy change. The unique role of psychologists and effective interventions will be discussed within an integrative and biopsychosocial framework.

Session B
Obesity in Children and Adolescents - Behavioral Approaches to Weight and Health Management
Abigail Seibert, Ph.D.

Childhood obesity has become a medical and crisis in the US. This workshop will present behavioral techniques to address weight and health management with children, adolescents and families. The role of food habits, sleep, exercise, emotion, and parental support will be discussed.

11:30am - 12:30pm
The role of behavioral health in the evaluation and management of diabetes
Kristin MacGregor, Ph.D.

This session aims to describe the basic physiology behind diabetes, with a focus on type 1 diabetes, as well as the typical requirements for self-managing this condition. It will also describe the psychosocial challenges associated with managing diabetes, and areas in which health psychology can be particularly effective.

12:30pm - 1:15pm

1:15pm - 2:15pm
Food Allergies: Supporting Patient and Family Balanced Adaptation
Jennifer LeBovidge, Ph.D.

2:30pm - 3:30pm
Afternoon Breakout Sessions (please choose one):

Session A
It's All in Your Head: Cognitive and Behavioral Approaches to Treating Chronic Pain
Saul Rosenthal, Ph.D.

One of the most common health complaints, chronic pain affects 100 million adults in the U.S. and costs over $500 Billion per year in medical costs and lost productivity. Traditional biomedical treatment is frequently ineffective. However, appropriate biopsychosocial approaches can reduce the experience of pain and significantly improve quality of life. In this talk, a CBT protocol for chronic pain is described. Theoretical and practical matters are presented for behavioral health providers wanting to engage in effective treatments for this widespread condition.

Session B
Psychological Interventions for the Treatment of Chronic Pediatric Pain: Translating Current Science into Practice
Rachael Coakley, Ph.D.

The evidence in support of psychological interventions for pediatric chronic pain is strong, demonstrating positive psychological and behavioral effects for a variety of children with a range of pain conditions. However, wide scale access to effective psychologically-based pain management treatments remains a challenge. Increasing access to care and reducing persistent biomedical biases that inhibit attainment of psychological services are a central focus of current pain treatment interventions. Additionally, as the number of evidence-based treatments increase, tailoring treatments to a child or family's particular needs is increasingly possible. This presentation will review the theoretical frameworks as well as the specific psychological skills and strategies that currently hold promise as effective agents of change, summarize recent trends in the development of well-researched outpatient interventions, discuss future directions for clinical intervention in pediatric chronic pain, and provide resources for direct clinical care.

3:45pm - 4:45pm
Psychologists Practicing in Primary Care
Leslie Bourne, Ph.D. and Lori Connors, Psy.D.

Drs. Bourne and Connors will discuss how psychologists can work in primary care, enabling them to work at the very heart of healthcare.
