142: Understanding and Treating Work-Based
Issues in Psychotherapy
Massive changes in the world of work are creating stress for clients and communities across the globe. Increasingly, clients are
asking for help in managing their work lives as part of their treatment. This introductory workshop provides participants with a
conceptual framework and specific tools to integrate work-based
treatment into psychotherapy. Through lecture, group discussion,
and role plays, participants learn skills designed to help clients
manage the stress of their work lives.
Leader: David L. Blustein, PhD, Boston College
168: Reporting Research: Ethical and
Professional Standards for Publication
This introductory workshop helps authors, reviewers, and editors produce complete, transparent reports about psychological
interventions. Journal publications are important for disseminating
psychological research. They guide researchers in the study of
psychology and help practitioners deliver care, and they influence public understanding of psychology. Evidence that many
psychological studies are not published, and evidence that some
studies cannot be replicated, undermines trust in the profession.
Workshop participants learn to use reporting guidelines (JARS
and MARS) and trial registries to increase transparency and better
serve the public and the profession.
