Mental health providers often work with the bereaved, particularly when it is complicated by the circumstances of the loss or when it is experienced by those who are already in psychological treatment. In this presentation, clinical psychologist Dr. Dale Wisely discusses stages of grief, special problems associated with traumatic bereavement, the relationship between love and grief, and therapeutic considerations for working with the bereaved.

Presenter: Dale Wisely, Ph.D.  

SUMMARY: In this update on recent ADHD research, we learn that prospective studies suggest that some children with ADHD do "outgrow" it, and some data suggest different characteristics among children with ADHD that may predict whether the disorder does or doesn't persist into adulthood.  The update reviews the research and clinical implications.

PROGRAM TOPIC: Sleep Deprivation in Teens:  Burning More than the Midnight Oil
FORMAT: Video (90 minutes), independent reading (90 minutes)
Cost:  $60 for members / $75.00 for non-members
Presenter: Mary Halsey Maddox, M.D.  (Video) 
Reading:  PEDIATRICS Volume 134, Number 3, September 2014.

Dr. Maddox presents a lecture on the purpose of sleep /sleep requirements, reality of sleep in today’s teens and the consequences of sleep deprivation. The required article from PEDIATRICS will further expound on these issues.Chronic sleep loss and associated sleepiness and daytime impairments in adolescence are a serious threat to their academic success, health, and safety. Understanding the extent and potential short- and long-term consequences of sleep deprivation is essential to get health care for this population, and has significant implications for public health policy. This activity reviews the current literature on sleep patterns in adolescents, factors contributing to chronic sleep loss (ie, electronic media use, caffeine consumption), and health-related consequences, such as depression, increased obesity risk, and higher rates of drowsy driving accidents. The report also discusses the potential role of later school start times as a means of reducing adolescent sleepiness.
