On Demand Grand Rounds: In the Mood: Learning to Self-Regulate Affect and Impulse
Harry Stack Sullivan Award Lecture
This presentation was originally reviewed on November 3, 2020, and broadcast live online on November 11, 2020, from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM ET.
Affect and impulse dysregulation are characteristics of multiple psychiatric disorders, most notably disorders of mood and personality. The individuals affected are often at-risk populations, have suffered physical and emotional trauma, and present to settings that are under-resourced (e.g., educational, residential, correctional). Our understanding of the underlying neurobiology is rapidly evolving, but our ability to treat disorders of affect and impulsivity pharmacologically is still limited at best. Psychotherapy is a critical tool, and often underutilized due to limited resources. The evidence for effective psychotherapy in these populations suggests incorporation of cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma-informed care into a skills-based program that is manualized and sustainable. Attendees of this conference will learn about the development, implementation, international dissemination, adaptations, and effectiveness of one such integrated therapy, named START NOW.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture attendees will be able to:
1. Define the skills-based, manualized CBT therapy, START NOW, and its original application in correctional and forensic populations.
2. Discuss the elements of START NOW.
3. Examine the adaptation of this skills-based psychotherapy to diverse patient populations, and the impact on affect regulation and impulse control.
