Helping Sailors and Marines Find Their Way, 4 FEB 2022
This CE activity will present values, meaning and purpose from a behavioral therapy perspective. A brief overview of a wide variety of literature will be covered, however the focus will be on implementation of these concepts in facilitating behavioral change in order to assist service members in overcoming avoidance in order to engage in a meaningful, value-driven life and to persevere in the face of adversity. These concepts are particularly relevant to service members who are confronted with challenges inherent in military training and operations, and have relevance in both peace and wartime. Several clinical cases will be presented to the group in order to both apply concepts covered in the presentation and also to share group knowledge and expertise amongst participants. Time permitting, a discussion of application of these principles outside of the therapy room will also be covered, to include how the concepts of values, meaning, and purpose are relevant to leadership, command climate, and organizational change.
This activity provides continuing education for psychologists. A certificate of attendance is available for other attendees.
