Pre-Conference Workshop #1 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm)
Videos of Master Supervisors at Work: Models of Integrative Supervision 
Presenters: Hanna Leveson, Levenson Institute for Training, San Francisco, CA and Arpana Inman, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA

Supervision is an intervention in its own right. The importance of psychotherapy supervision can be attested to by the increased state laws and regulations certifying supervisors, the required multiple supervisory practica and internships for graduate students completing their professional psychotherapy training, as well as the recent development of the APA Guidelines on Supervision (2014). Although there is an increasing number of calls for materials outlining and demonstrating what expert supervisors actually do in supervision, supervision remains a behind closed doors activity.
To rectify this situation, APA recently undertook a new video series spearheaded by Hanna Levenson and Arpana G. Inman.  In this series, 11 eminent psychotherapy supervisors each conduct a 45-minute, unrehearsed supervision session with one of his/her supervisees. The format of the series is closely modeled after APA’s Expert Therapist Series. Each expert represents a different approach to supervision cutting across the range of psychotherapy-based and supervision-based orientations.
For this Workshop, we focus on supervision models that are pantheoretical and integrative, incorporating processes and principles salient to different supervisory approaches. Three experts from the following models will show and discuss video excerpts from their APA DVD’s: integrative developmental (Brian McNeil), critical events (Nick Ladany), and integrative (John Norcross). A unique aspect of this Workshop is that co-presenting with their supervisors will be the supervisees who were part of the video taping and who will speak to their experience of these respective models (Nadal Kaivan, Tiffany O’Shaughnessy, and Leah Popple).

Length of Workshop: 3 hours

Pre-Conference Workshop #2 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm)
Complex Integrative Interventions for a Highly Conflicted Family: It Takes a Village
Presenters: Jeffrey Zimmerman, Private Practice, Manhattan/NYC, NY; and Lauren Behrman, Private Practice, Manhattan/NYC, NY;

Integrative strategies are often applied to psychotherapy treatment offered by a single provider. However, at times, especially in the case of a high-conflict post-divorce family, multiple providers are enlisted to provide coordinated interventions. This workshop will present a model for such an approach in which individual mental health professionals take an integrative perspective, and employ an integrative system of care for their interventions. A case (disguised) will be used to show how this model helped a very challenging family with a history of annual court hearings, a child refusing parental contact, and parents who routinely interacted with hostility and fear of each other. Ethical challenges and opportunities for future research will also be discussed.

Length of Workshop: 3 hours



Pre-Conference Workshop #3 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm)
New Pathways for Integrating Psychotherapeutics— Innovation through Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Expertise
Presenters: Jeffrey Magnavita, Private Practice, Glastonbury, CT  and Steven Sobelman, Loyola University (Maryland), Baltimore, MD

Let’s stop theorizing and instead start finding solutions to the mental health needs of the world. Advances in clinical science, technology, and psychotherapeutics are affording new opportunities to develop practical solutions for mental health care. New innovative solutions are emerging and being tested in the marketplace, which are rapidly changing our conceptions of mental health care and are challenging our biases about how we practice. In this workshop, we will explore new pathways to integrative psychotherapeutics disrupting the field based on technological advances and fueled by entrepreneurship. The behavioral and mental health needs of the world require us to think out of the box, and technology is providing new platforms that offer solutions to the most vexing problems, as well as disrupting old models of health care delivery, supervision, training, and decision-making. Participants will participate in a PsychIncubator where we will hatch, discuss, and present real life solutions for delivering integrative psychotherapeutics. Participants are encouraged to bring their ideas, solutions, developing products, and passion for advancing psychotherapeutics and delivering solutions that will make access, efficiency, and optimization of mental health services possible for all.

Length of Workshop: 3 hours
