Live OCD & Anxiety Lecture Series: Sessions V & VI - June 21, 2024
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common and often debilitating mental health condition characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repeated distress-reducing behaviors (compulsions). Frequently misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated, this series of lectures will demystify OCD and related disorders and the most effective protocols for helping those who suffer from them. Attendees new to or heavily experienced in treating OCD and related disorders will gain knowledge from multiple perspectives. This unique format features six lectures from top experts in the field, scheduled across three sessions over the Spring 2024 season. This series includes experts presenting on the concept of growth mindset in OCD treatment, the use of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in OCD treatment, an update on the state of pharmacology in OCD, and sessions on the treatment of perfectionism, hoarding, and health anxiety.

Live Grand Rounds: Naming the Elephants in the Room: Overcoming Resistance to Achieve Health Equity
Despite decades of effort, racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare remain a persistent challenge. This interactive workshop will explore the root causes of this stagnation, with a particular focus on the often-unacknowledged resistance to change that hinders progress towards health equity. Through examination of the ongoing disparities in healthcare outcomes, we will identify the individual and organizational behaviors that obstruct equitable practices. Participants will learn to recognize these "elephants in the room" within their own institutions and develop strategies to dismantle these barriers, fostering a more inclusive and equitable healthcare environment.

Live Grand Rounds: Psychodynamic Formulation: An Expanded Approach
Formulation is essential to every treatment. Without a formulation, we are unable to make a diagnosis, collaboratively create a treatment plan, or engage in treatment. Yet formulation is not always taught, and, when it is, this teaching is not always clear. In this talk, Deborah Cabaniss will discuss the work that she and colleagues in the Psychodynamic Formulation Collective have done to operationalize psychodynamic formulation and to place the effects of culture and society on par with other psychodynamic models of the mind. Clinically relevant to all patient settings, this talk will be of interest to trainees and seasoned clinicians alike.
