The University of Iowa Helping Professional Workshops
Thursday August 6 9am - 4pm. noon lunch on own
Working with Complicated Cases, Jody L. Jones, Ph.D., Clinical Assistant Professor, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Organ Transplant Center
Most mental health practitioners find that clients/consumers bring to sessions more than one issue requiring therapeutic attention. This might involve a mood disorder in conjunction with an addiction problem, or a serious health issue with an adjustment disorder. Several such cases will be discussed in this course, using my own experience as a transplant psychologist as a backdrop. The course will involve the presentation of cases with active participation from participants highly encouraged. Objectives include: Learning how to separate the symptoms of psychological disorders from serious health issues, a demonstration of how ACT-based therapy can address multiple issues in a single client and increased understanding of how psychological resilience affects immune functioning and health.

Friday August 7
Working with Client with Histories of Trauma, Joyce Morrison, MSW, Vera French Community Mental Health Center, Davenport, IA
Trauma can impair emotional, behavioral, psychological functioning as well as impede or damage development throughout the life span. This course is designed to examine the impact of trauma on client functioning as well as promote understanding of impact of trauma on development and impairment that can have longstanding effect in the life of an individual. Ideas for intervention will also be provided that target developmental repair work to aid in assisting clients in coping with and resolving issues related to histories of trauma.
