Perhaps some of the difficulty in treating eating disorders is the result of a lack of understanding of the complex issues that contribute to the development and maintenance of the pathological symptoms and behaviour. This CPD course reviews the new DSM-5 criteria for Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge-Eating Disorder. This is followed by a discussion of the risk factors. The different theories, approaches, and therapeutic models of eating disorders will be elaborated on. Body image and body dysmorphia will also be addressed. Criteria for hospitalization and the burdens of eating disorders will be debated. Forensic psychology and court Program Description: This is an introductory forensic psychology workshop and discussion that will focus on the South African Legal structures, including the role of the Psychologist in court, some forensic evaluations and assessments will be discussed, report writing and giving evidence in a court of law. It will also include focusing on Courtroom etiquette, information about how to prepare personally and professionally for court. Ethics: Learn how to deal with ethical dilemmas and how to make decisions that protect clients' rights. Examine the boundaries in client-therapist relationships and discuss the importance of professional values and ethics. Explore models used for ethical decision-making. Attendees will be able to share ethical dilemmas and discuss the code's application to various difficult hypothetical situations. This course will be interactive and case vignettes will be provided to attendees. Group work and individual participation is required. Special consideration is given to material that will assist candidates in preparation for taking the HPCSA National Examination of the Board for Registered Counsellors and Psychologists. The course will also include: The importance of professional values and ethics in human service practice; Models of ethical decision-making; The importance of professional boundaries; Case vignettes Co-dependency affecting psychology professionals Although co-dependency is not classified as a disorder in the DSM-V, co-dependency is a 'disorder' that shouldn't be overlooked in ourselves and in our clients, irrespective of their diagnosis or presenting problem. Therapists and counsellors (and for that matter any person in the 'helping' profession) can also be co-dependent or have characteristics of co-dependency. It has been suggested (Lancer-2013) that some co-dependency is a prerequisite to becoming a therapist, and perhaps even essential to becoming a good one—for who else would take pleasure in focusing on helping others—often at the expense of their own needs! Whether a therapist's co-dependency helps or harms the therapy depends on self-awareness. We need to be mindful of co-dependency as it affects treatment/intervention. Relationship counselling In this training models for the treatment of relationship counselling will be discussed, whilst case studies and practical work will assist practitioners to develop skills with regards to conducting of relationship counselling in their practices and other workplaces. Psychologist wellbeing Psychologists’ well-being sustains their professional competence. The experiences of psychologists with regards to well-being has ethical implications, due to psychologists’ obligation to assist with client well-being. Well-being in work and non-work contexts are inter-related. Therefore, the experience of well-being for psychologists in a non-work context may impact on the work context and viz-a-viz. The complete state of health and well-being of psychologists is therefore imperative both in terms of their own functioning and the well-being of their clients. The question then arises what levels of well-being psychologists experience, how they attain it and how they purposefully enhance their well-being? These and many more questions will be addressed in this training.
