REDESIGN YOUR MIND: The Breakthrough Program for Real Cognitive Change
October 6, 2021 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM Eastern (10:00 to 11:30 AM Pacific)
with Eric Maisel, Ph.D.
Philosophers from Marcus Aurelius to the Buddha have concerned themselves with the idea that “you are what you think.” Today, this age-old notion is explored via complex cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques. Dr. Eric Maisel moves cognitive change a giant step forward by analyzing and explaining the room that is your mind—what it is and how human consciousness is experienced there. You will learn not only how to change what you think but how to change how you think. Maisel’s techniques address major challenges like depression, addiction, procrastination, and loneliness, and promote cognitive growth, trauma healing, and fundamental change. Your mind is yours to redesign, redecorate, and recreate—learn how!Objectives:- Learn how redesign your mind- Learn how to create rapid, fundamental cognitive change- Learn how to improve your indwelling style and change how you experience “the room that is your mind”

The Need for Culturally Competent Treatment: African American Women & Depression
October 22, 2021 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM Eastern (9:00 to 10:00 AM Pacific)
with Bernice Roberts Kennedy, Ph.D., MSN, APRN, PMH-CNS, BC and Chalice C. Rhodes, Ph.D., LPC, NCC, BC-TMH, TPMC According to Villarroel & Terlizzi (2020), in 2019, 1 in 5 adults aged 18 and older experienced depressive symptoms in the past 2 weeks; women were more likely than men to experience depressive symptoms; 19.3% of non- Hispanic Black adults experienced any severity of depressive symptoms in the past two weeks. One might make an educated to guess to surmise that depression rates are likely higher among African- American women as depression may be underreported among African American women due to the Strong Black Woman archetype and may be undetected by healthcare providers. There is a need for culturally competent treatment in assessing and diagnosing depression among African American women. Dr. Kennedy and Dr. Rhodes will help participants analyze the historical perspectives of African American women and challenges they have faced. The Multifaceted Model of Depression in African American Women will be explained. Participants will have the opportunity to explore strategies for improving health outcomes of African American women with depression.Objectives:- Define depression- Analyze the historical perspective of African American women and challenges associated with various struggles, forms of oppression and negative character stereotypes- Explain the Multifaceted Model of Depression African American women- Explore strategies for improving health outcomes of African American women with depression
AMHCA will provide 1 CEs for this webinar to all attendees who are registered and attend for 45 minutes or longer.
