Presentation Summaries:


Tim Strongin, PhD - 'Preventing Human Error in the Workplace'
Accidents and injuries cause countless losses of life, health and peace of mind.  The organizational, supervisory, interpersonal and intrapersonal factors that predispose us to danger are well-documented and frequently reported.  Psychologists have a unique role in enhancing organizational safety because of our background in neuropsychology, perception, learning, behavior, emotion, interpersonal relations and decision-making.  This presentation presents a systematic approach to identifying and preventing human factors errors.


Rex Swanda, PhD - 'The Arc of Clinical Practice'
How did you get where you are now, and where might your unique mix of interests, talents, and experiences take you in the future?  Using personal experiences as well as examples of other psychologists, this presentation aims to inspire psychologists to identify their own unique history of critical personal and professional factors that have led them to their present professional life, and consider some of the factors that will prepare them to creatively forge new paths in their personal and professional lives.

Kathryn Lenberg, PhD - 'To Identify and Express: Living Fully as a Model for Others to Live Fully'

This workshop will focus on understanding one's own sexual and gender experience as it informs the therapeutic relationship. The focus will be to better understand our own gendered and sexual histories and narratives. We will also explore how our cultural expectations, language, and narrative about gender and sexuality affect us and our work with  Sexual and Gender Minority individuals and couples. Through courage and acceptance, we will develop our ability to connect more meaningfully to the experience of our clients as sexual and gendered beings. We will engage in several exercises to expand psychologists’ knowledge and understanding of their own gender experience (identity and expression) as well as explore tools to use with patients to engage in gender identity self-exploration from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy approach. 

John Gluck, PhD - 'Ethics and the Concept of Profession'

Historically the concept of Profession arose from the sense of the responsibility of the nobility to pay back the luck and benefits of their blood-based royal status.  As such, the ethical expectations of the providers, were in excess of the norms of the common morality.  More recently there has been expressed concern that the concept of profession and the inherent ethical expectations have been reduced  to those of just a difficult consumer oriented job.  The relevance of this critique will be discussed in the context psychology education and practice.
