  • December 13: Mary K. Alvord, PhD, will present “Enhancing Motivation and Engagement With Youth”
    • Tweens and teens do not often initiate therapy but are referred to treatment by their parents, school counselors, psychiatrists, or pediatricians. It’s critical that tweens and teens “buy-in” and be a collaborative and proactive partner in treatment. Dr. Mary Alvord will provide a framework for psychologists to enhance motivation for change among youth who are stuck in their patterns of avoidance, perhaps due to anxiety, depression, or other challenges. She will discuss how transtheoretical stages of change, motivational interviewing, values assessment, and the process of tolerating discomfort boost motivation for change and set the groundwork for behavioral techniques (e.g., exposure and behavioral activation). Dr. Alvord’s emphasis will be on providing strategies and “tools” for practice through case examples.
  • Thursday, January 25: Tonya Wood, PhD, will present “Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to Build Resilience and Coping During Infertility”
    • Dr. Wood will review cognitive, emotional, and psychological responses to infertility. Social, cultural, and religious variables in coping will also be explored. Dr. Wood will discuss current research on the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and demonstrate techniques to illustrate how ACT can be effectively applied within reproductive psychology to promote resilience, coping, and adjustment to infertility.
