5th Annual Clinical Practice Symposium


5th Annual Clinical Practice Symposium: The Nuts and Bolts of Working with BDD, Rumination, and Suicidal Ideation

Friday, March 29, 8 am - 10 am


This year our annual clinical symposium will feature a panel of expert clinicians demonstrating key interventions with an adult client struggling with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), rumination, and suicidal ideation.
Our panel of experts will demonstrate “hands on” interventions in a session when clients and therapist “get stuck” in the therapy room.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply different treatment interventions for an adult client struggling with BDD, rumination, and suicidal ideation.
  • Integrate current clinical research findings into the treatment of clients struggling with BDD and related conditions.
  • Utilize the knowledge of experts in conceptualizing the presentation of a client struggling with BDD and related conditions.
