114: Translating Evidence-Based Treatments
for Insomnia in Children and Adults Into
Insomnia is highly prevalent, impacting 20-30% of children and up
to 33% of adults. Untreated insomnia can result in negative mood,
impairment in academic/vocational performance, poor social interactions, negative family functioning, and poor health-related quality
of life. Strong evidence supports cognitive and behavioral interventions for insomnia across the lifespan, yet many psychologists
have received little if any adequate training in the implementation
of these interventions. This intermediate workshop describes the
evidence supporting insomnia interventions and provides clinicians
step-by-step guidance, using a case-based approach, on how to
implement these interventions.

115: Treating Children With Mood and
This intermediate workshop teaches the fundamentals of providing psychotherapy to youths with mood and comorbid disorders
using psychoeducational psychotherapy (PEP), both the multifamily
(MF-PEP) and individual family (IF-PEP) formats. Training follows the
format of materials covered in PEP, beginning with key features of
assessment, including differential diagnosis and comorbidity. Next,
biological interventions are reviewed, including nutritional interventions. The majority of the workshop focuses on psychotherapeutic elements of PEP. Audience questions are welcomed throughout.
This program utilizes lecture format, case presentations, video
clips, demonstrations, and role plays.
