    We are incredibly excited to offer an opportunity to attend an exclusive Media Training Workshop at a premier video production studio with seasoned and respected media professionals and the personality and media psychologist Dr. Richard Levak. Whether your interest is in educating the public, reaching new clients, defining your practice, or establishing yourself as an expert for news and television, this workshop will help you present your message effectively to the mainstream and social media outlets.

    Increasingly, media outlets are hungry for psychological content. Print, television, radio, and internet-based and social media are interested in providing their audience with scientifically-based research on relevant topics in issues concerning personality, marital interaction, child rearing, and intellectual assessment. Psychologists need to be able to parse scientific data and present it to the media in brief, bullet form without losing scientific rigor, while ensuring that the information they present cannot be distorted to harm the consumer or the profession of psychology. This training will teach participants how to deliver meaningful and ethical content, while looking and sounding their best on camera.



    In addition to 6 CEUs, participants in this training will 

    • Create a professionally produced 3-4 minute video in which they will discuss their area of practice or expertise useable for their website and as an example of their on-camera presence for interested media outlets
    • Learn how to develop a story line based on recent research
    • Gain experience in creating a brief summary of the relevant research and “talking points” that allow the interviewer to assimilate the data and ask relevant questions.
    • Become aware of how to avoid possible ethical pitfalls and to maintain ethical boundaries. 

    The training will provide

    • Didactic instruction
    • Personal coaching in small groups
    • On camera coaching
    • Professional makeup for the video clips
    • Lunch will be provided
    No Conflicts of interest with Richard Levak.

    THERAPY QUEST: AN INTERACTIVE GAME-BASED THERAPY APPROACH - 4 CEs

    Presented by Janina Scarlet, Ph.D.


    This course will demonstrate how to incorporate popular culture and interactive board games into evidence-based therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in treating a variety of metal health disorders, such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Given the wide board game applicability, The Therapy Quest approach will demonstrate how therapists can help clients better understand and process their own experiences and promote behavioral changes. In addition, due to the interactive nature of board games, this course will also feature examples of how games can be used in therapy to foster rapport and emotion processing. Due to the fact that this is a novel approach, the empirical evidence related to its effectiveness is limited. This workshop will present the existing research, the questions which remain to be answered, as well as provide specific examples and skills in incorporating games and popular culture in therapy. 

    At the end of the course, attendees will be able to

    1. Describe and discuss the concept of Game-based therapy (Therapy Quest)

    2. Demonstrate how to incorporate gaming examples into treatment

    3. Analyze which game interventions might be most suitable for a specific client

    4. Create a treatment plan using the Therapy Quest  model

    Attendance Policy: CE Credit and Certificates will not be issued to those who arrive later than 15 minutes or leave early from any course scheduled time. This policy is highly enforced to ensure compliance with APA Guidelines.

    Cancellation Policy:  No refund will be given to any registered individual who is a no-show to a course. Any individual canceling within 72 hours of a course will be charged 50% of the course fee.
