This workshop will train attendees in the application of the powerful matrix treatment planning model and specific interviewing techniques to engage difficult clients, address inaccurate or missed diagnoses, and discover the earliest signs of psychosis.
Dr. Shea will teach the powerful matrix treatment planning model to help mental healthcare professionals reach the people beneath the diagnoses, providing practical strategies and techniques for transforming stalled haling and creating resiliency. Matrix treatment planning also provides a refreshing antidote to clinician burnout. Attendees will learn specific interviewing methods for uncovering problematic personality dysfunction through an easily understood and clarifying set of specific interviewing techniques for engaging difficult clients. The session will also address inaccurate or missed diagnoses and the puzzling world of psychosis.
Goal of Training
Dr. Shea begins the day by tracking down the answers to two elusive and controversial questions: What is the nature of happiness? and What is the nature of human nature itself? He then demonstrates, with specific clinical examples, how the answers to these philosophical questions can be powerfully applied - a model called "matrix treatment planning" - to reach the people beneath the diagnoses, providing practical strategies and techniques for transforming stalled healing and creating resiliency. Matrix treatment planning also provides a surprisingly refreshing antidote to clinician "burn-out" as both client and clinician undertake their respective quests for happiness.
In the second workshop, Dr. Shea shifts the focus to specific interviewing methods for uncovering problematic personality dysfunction in a sensitive fashion. In an effort to better understand the unique qualities of the people beneath the Axis II diagnoses, he brings new life to psychodynamic concepts such as "object relations" and the "psychology of the self" while integrating them with cognitive and behavioral approaches. The result is an easily understood and clarifying set of specific interviewing techniques for engaging difficult clients, uncovering serious personality pathology, and determining the number of treatment sessions.
In the afternoon, Dr. Shea turns the focus onto one of the most problematic of all clinical gremlins - inaccurate or missed diagnoses. Taking the workshop participants on a sophisticated journey into an exploration of the people beneath the anxiety diagnoses - using a series of vivid videos of actual clinical interviews - he provides a refreshing understanding of how people individually experience and make sense of their anxiety symptoms. From this phenomenological understanding, Dr. Shea demonstrates numerous interviewing techniques that help uncover the complexities of often misunderstood diagnoses such as OCD, PTSD, and panic disorder including their atypical presentations.
In the last workshop Dr. Shea looks at the puzzling world of psychosis. He demonstrates a variety of specific interviewing techniques to help clinicians ferret out the earliest signs of impending psychosis or relapse, while providing a better understanding of the exquisite pain created by psychotic process. In addition he provides immediately practical interviewing techniques for spotting dangerous psychotic process including suicide, homicide, and self-mutilation. Once again Dr. Shea illustrates his interviewing techniques with compelling videos of actual clients experiencing psychotic process.
Be able to apply the principles of "matrix treatment planning" (including healing matrix effects, damaging matrix effects and the "Red Herring Principle") to transform stalled treatment interventions.
Be able to utilize the theories of object relations (Kernberg) and the psychology of the self (Kohut) to apply specific interviewing techniques - such as the complementary shift - to engage difficult clients while quickly spotting serious psychopathology such as borderline, narcissistic, and antisocial process.
Be able to use specific interviewing techniques for rapidly uncovering OCD, PTSD, and panic disorder (including atypical presentations) using the DSM-IV-TR while sensitively understanding the nuances of each of these disorders for each unique client (including the concept of primary, secondary, and tertiary symptoms).
Be able to utilize interviewing techniques for spotting delusional mood, delusional perception, the life-cycle of a psychosis, and dangerous psychotic processes including command hallucinations, alien control, and hyperreligiosity.
