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.

Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) refers to a group of non-cognitive symptoms and behaviors that occur commonly in patients with dementia. They result from a complex interplay between various biological, psychological and social factors involved in the disease process. BPSD is associated with increased caregiver burden, institutionalization, a more rapid decline in cognition and function and overall poorer quality of life. It also adds to the direct and indirect costs of caring for patients with dementia. Available data indicate efficacy for some non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment modalities for BPSD. However, recently the use of psychotropic medications for the treatment of BPSD has generated controversy due to increased recognition of their serious adverse effects.

Many primary care health professionals feel uncomfortable screening for depression and suicide. The reasons are varied. Some do not feel adequately trained to address mental health issues, others feel these issues are overly complex as well as time and labor intensive within the context of a busy primary care practice. Our four presenters, representing the fields of psychiatry, psychology, and social work, will offer easily implemented screening tools and practices that will help flag patients at high risk for depression and suicide and recommend how to efficiently manage and refer them to the appropriate level of care. As completed suicides climb in the United States, particularly among youth, the elderly, and minority populations, the primary care provider may be the best professional able to identify those at high risk of suicide, especially in light of the finding that most people who complete suicide visited their primary care professional within three to six months of their death. Asking about depression and suicide in primary care can save lives!

Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) was among the most admired and influential performing artists of the 20th century, with an approach to rhythm and phrasing that left a deep and lasting impression on all popular singers to follow. At the same time, his public persona and private life were among the most controversial of public figures. This presentation will use images, audio, and video clips to illustrate Mr. Sinatra’s professional journey across six decades, including examination of his lifelong alcohol use and periods of despondency and suicidality. We will pay special attention to how he dealt with his own aging process, including how he continued to tour in concert well into the progressive dementia that would eventually end his career. His story holds rich implications for considering the creative resilience potential in aging, and for the limitations to such resilience posed by illness and functional impairment.

The American Psychiatric Association’s Principles of Medical Ethics emphasize competence, respect and up-to-date knowledge as a basis for appropriate professional behavior toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) patients. After providing some definitions of helpful terms, this presentation then reviews historical psychiatric attitudes towards LGBTQ patients that could be construed, at best, as patronizing and, at worst, overtly hostile. In modern clinical practice, as opposed to trying to “cure” homosexuality or “transsexualism,” LGBTQ patients are helped to live their lives according to their own natures and desires. This presentation outlines some common clinical questions raised by LGBTQ patients—what is known and not known about the origins of homosexuality and transgender expression, sexual orientation conversion efforts (SOCE), therapist self-disclosure, how therapists should address LGBTQ patients, and controversies surrounding treatment of transgender children—as well as ethical issues raised in these clinical encounters.
