morning half-day workshops (CONTINUED)
8:00–11: 50 a.m.
Workshop 104 is part of Dr. Donald Bersoff’s Presidential Programming.
104 ethical, multicultural, and
for Boys and men
Although most males have traditionally been reluctant to enter
psychotherapy, increasing numbers of boys and men are finding
their way to therapists’ offices. Many males accommodate easily
to the expectations of therapy, but many others find the client
role to be quite foreign to the central tenets of male socialization.
Utilizing videotapes and case examples, this introductory workshop
illuminates the primary conflicts between masculinity and help-seeking and articulates a model of effective, ethically sensitive, and
multiculturally aware inventions for boys and men.
Leader: Gary R. Brooks, PhD, Independent Practice, Temple, TX
105 the psychology of weight
regulation: eating, exercise,
and Body image
Weight, eating, exercise avoidance, and body image concerns
frequently emerge in treating non-eating disordered patients. This
introductory workshop helps psychologists successfully address
these issues. Cross-cultural prevalence, biological determinants,
dieting, and medical and surgical treatments will be briefly discussed.
Physical hunger, external cues, and emotional and relationship
determinants of eating will be described followed by a psychological
approach to weight regulation. Research findings, case histories, and
policy initiatives to reduce the incidence of obesity will be presented.
Leader: Edward Abramson, PhD, California State University, Chico, Chico, CA
