Resilience: From Research to Practice
Will You Be There? ADAA President Luana Marques
“ADAA’s 2020 Annual Conference – celebrating our 40th anniversary - is quickly approaching! The conference tagline 'Resilience: From Research to Practice' was inspired by our collective need to further understand the construct of resilience and how to enhance resilience across the lifespan, and our continued need to address the science practice gap. Of our over 140+ amazing sessions, 28 will address the topic of resilience! Thank you to each and every one of our presenters: we have much to learn from you.”

Putting the Cardi B in CBT: Using Stars, Sports, Star Wars, Superheroes, and Pop Culture to Make Therapy Accessible & Fun for Anxious Youth
Presented by Sandra S. Pimentel, PhD
Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Cognitive behavioral treatment for youth anxiety is an effective intervention approach (Crowe & McKay, 2017). While manual-based approaches offer structure for the delivery of intervention strategies, there is ample room for flexibility to “breathe life” into the treatment (Kendall, Chu, & Gifford, 1998; Kendall, Gosch, Furr, & Sood, 2008). CBT components include, for example, psychoeducation, rapport-building, affective education, self-monitoring, cognitive restructuring, problem solving, somatic management, role play, modeling, skills rehearsal, behavioral experiments, exposure, reinforcement and rewards that require an understanding and integration cognitive and behavioral principles with development, family, culture, and multiple other relevant variables. This is no easy task! As such, and in working with children and adolescents in particular, CBT therapists are teachers, storytellers, coaches, collaborative empiricists, and producers as well who must utilize creativity and fun. In this webinar, the presenter will demonstrate how to use singers, sports, superhero narratives, and pop culture references to supercharge how to teach children and families about feelings, coping, and problem solving, and engage in practice and exposures. Clinical materials will also be shared with participants.
Distinguishing Suicidal Ideation from Intrusive Self-Harm OCD
Presented by Mike Heady, MA
Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Individuals suffering with intrusive self-harm OCD frequently misattribute their thoughts for genuine suicidal ideation. Well-intentioned therapists, who do not know how to differentiate genuine suicidal ideation from intrusive and unwanted obsessions, often encourage their clients to get suicide risk evaluations from local ERs. However, this behavior can steer the individual with self-harm OCD further into their disorder, increasing distress and severity of symptoms. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to assess for and differentiate intrusive, unwanted self-harm obsessions that occur in OCD from genuine suicidal ideation and planning. This differentiation is key to providing adequate treatment.
Race, Stress, and Black Mother and Infant Mortality: Emotional Health Matters
Presented by Angela Neal-Barnett, PhD and Christin Farmer Kane, BA
Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
Within the United States, Black maternal and infant mortality has reached alarming rates. Black mothers and infants are 2.5 times more likely to die than their white counterparts. The major contributing factor is stress, particularly stress produced by structural racism. In this webinar led by a clinical psychological scientist and community-based doula, we present an overview of the role of race-related stress in Black maternal and infant mortality. We examine the psychosocial and biological data on its impact on mothers and babies. We present evidence on how stress is viewed by various groups of expectant and post-partum Black mothers. Barriers to implement stress and anxiety interventions with this population are discussed. Finally, we present data on our culturally-relevant community-engaged partnership to reduce the effects of stress and anxiety on expectant Black mothers.
Anxiety and Depression Treatment for Immigrant, Refugee, and Asylee Clients
Presented by Rachel Singer, PhD
Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 12:00 pm EST
This webinar will provide an overview of strategies for integrating multiculturally competent strategies into evidence-based treatment of anxiety and depression for immigrants, refugees, and asylees. Specific tools for addressing barriers to treatment and incorporating resources will also be addressed. Discussion will focus on strategies for conceptualizing and treating clients from a systemic perspective. This training will also include case application and discussion of practical tools. Participants will have an opportunity for discussion and questions.

Personal Stories of Triumph - Supporting ADAA’s Mission
ADAA shares stories of triumph submitted by our public community. These stories focus on how people living with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma-related disorders have struggled, coped, and triumphed.
Recently, James Kirkendall shared his story:
"Most people do not understand the frustrations and the struggles someone with high functioning autism goes through on a daily basis. I’m still trying to learn more ways to cope and use my obsessive traits as a strength and not a weakness."

We encourage all of our new members to join the new ADAA online member community, SocialLink, today to start connecting!
Stephanie Woodrow, LCPC NCC
“When I decided to become a therapist, I knew I wanted to specialize in treating anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder. My work in graduate school reflected these interests and joining the ADAA community as I transitioned to a trainee was a natural fit. At my first ADAA conference, I participated in the CDLP Program and was matched with Ruth Lippin, LCSW, JD as my mentor, Ruth was not only supportive but excited for me and she introduced me to Elizabeth DuPont Spencer, LCSW-C and Kimberly Morrow, LCSW. This trio quickly became my “Three Wise Women,” and their passion for training clinicians, and specifically masters-level clinicians, excited me and inspired me to become more involved with ADAA. I applied for a position on the Early Career Professionals and Students SIG and was selected first as co-vice chair and then chair. I recently joined the ADAA’s Membership and Marketing Committee, where I connect my work from the Early Career SIG to the greater ADAA community. My Three Wise Women continue to support me, offering advice, suggestions, and encouragement, and I know when I see them at ADAA conferences I’ll get an injection of passion, energy, and excitement. I look forward to exploring how my involvement with ADAA expands and changes, and to continuing to collaborate with other professionals passionate about treating people with anxiety and depression.”
Recently named an “Emerging Leader” by ADAA, Stephanie is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor specializing in the treatment of adults with anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and related disorders.
Meet Stephanie in San Antonio next month!

Mental health professionals say data breaches and other cyber crimes are increasingly taking a heavy psychological toll on the millions of Americans whose personal information is plundered by fraudsters.
It's not just the nightmarish process of clearing your name and credit history or the struggle to get credit or loans, housing, employment or medical services after a breach. Victims wrestle with feelings of powerlessness and vulnerability. Their sleep can be disrupted, energy levels decrease. They self-medicate with alcohol, drugs or food. For some, the aftereffects are more severe: bouts of depression and anxiety, even post-traumatic stress disorder.
Hopelessness is likely a driving factor for suicidal ideation in patients with depressive disorder, largely because it covaries with depressive symptoms, according to study findings published in Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. However, researchers noted that severity of depressive symptoms may predict suicidal ideation more accurately than hopelessness.
In the Journal of Clinical Psychology, authors O’Connor, Holly, Chevalier, Pincus & Langer (2020) focus on “parental accommodation," defined as: “[T]he involvement of caregivers in facilitating child avoidance of anxiety‐provoking stimuli or in alleviating the distress caused by anxiety.” Parental accommodation includes behaviors such as “providing reassurance, allowing the child to skip activities when distressed, modifying family routines, and adhering to child‐assigned rules around anxiety‐provoking stimuli.”
Accommodation increases anxiety because youngsters never have a chance to fail and persist. This can stunt self-efficacy, preventing “fear extinction” and “habituation” to anxiety-provoking situations.

Online mindfulness-based cognitive therapy can improve residual depressive symptoms in patients who remain symptomatic despite antidepressants and/or psychotherapy, new research shows.
Results of a randomized trial of more than 400 adults with RDS showed patients who received web-based Mindful Mood Balance plus usual depression care had significantly higher remission rates than those who only received usual care.
Maternal mental illness and frequent change of caregivers were shown to be significantly associated with overactivation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in children, adolescents, and young adults in institutional care, according to a pilot study published in Psychiatry Research. Early-life stress caused by adverse childhood experiences has been linked to alterations in HPA axis activity that persist into adulthood, which may play a role in mental illness, including depression.

While fear memory — or the ability to remember contexts in which to be afraid — is important for survival, too much of it, and an inability to forget contexts that no longer apply, hinders daily activities. Recently, scientists found that a certain opioid drug can help mask some fear memory without causing undesirable side effects. This could make new therapies possible for anxiety disorders like phobias or PTSD.
More people than ever before are taking antidepressant medication to manage their depression symptoms, but a new study warns about an overlooked side effect of long-term antidepressant use: something similar to withdrawal symptoms.
Older adults have an elevated risk of depression compared to individuals in other age groups, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, findings suggest that major depressive disorder affects a small portion of this population. A 2017 review published in JAMA reported that the prevalence of MDD is two percent among older adults, with an additional 10 to 15 percent of older adults experiencing significant depressive symptoms.
Screening for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in the primary care setting does not harm patients as measured by prevalence of depression and anxiety, recent research shows. Primary care clinicians provide the most care to older adults, and at least half of primary care patients afflicted with ADRDs are never diagnosed with the conditions. For patients who do receive an ADRD diagnosis, the determination is often made two to five years after the onset of symptoms, which limits the benefits of early detection, such as reducing family burden.
