Live Neuropsychiatric Workshop Series: Neuropsychiatric Aspects of COVID-19
The current COVID-19 pandemic has been transformative for medicine and society. This is also reflected in the unprecedented volume of COVID-relevant papers on every subject of life sciences and humanities. A multitude of neurological and psychiatric problems and illnesses have been associated, in one way or another, with COVID-19. Much research is still in the early phase, but some patterns being to emerge. Because of the spread of infection and the commonality of neuropsychiatric complaints, the neurological and psychiatric practitioner will inevitably deal with problems or questions linking the virus with behavioral, cognitive, and mental complaints. This CME activity will provide a general framework within which such problems can be understood and managed, while awaiting more definitive information from ongoing research.

Live Neuropsychiatric Workshop Series: Adaptions in Psychotherapy: Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training for Individuals with Brain Injury
Neuropsychiatric consequences that follow a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be debilitating from behavioral, cognitive, and emotional standpoints. Individuals with TBI can also suffer from impulsivity, leading to problems like loss of jobs and troubles in their interpersonal relationships. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a psychotherapy originally used to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder and chronic suicidality. In general, research has supported that standard DBT is effective for people experiencing chronic emotion dysregulation and complex-difficult to treat mental health problems. Given the strong focus in DBT on teaching and generalizing new skill as well as the importance placed on providers balancing acceptance and change, an adapted DBT treatment presents itself as an appropriate therapeutic approach for individuals with TBI. This presentation will discuss an adapted DBT-informed psychotherapy, strongly focused on patient skills acquisition, improves the way patients with TBI function and cope with their lives, specifically in their ability to cope with stress, emotion regulation capabilities, connectedness with their social supports, and overall satisfaction in life.
