Adverse Childhood Experiences as Context for Youth

Title:
Adverse Childhood Experiences as Context for Youth Assessment and Diagnosis
Author(s):
Kaprea F. Johnson, PhD; Shonn Cheng, PhD; Dana L. Brookover, PhD; and Brett Zyromski, PhD
Description:
Research has found that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can be emotionally painful or distressing, with potentially negative consequences for years. While counselors need to be aware of ACEs, the prevalence rate of ACEs, and how experiencing ACEs impacts mental and behavioral health outcomes, there is a lack of empirical research centered on ACEs and assessing them with children and a need for more information about effectively assessing ACEs and how counselors can use this information in diagnosis, treatment, and their advocacy work (Johnson et al., 2023). Professional counselors, as indicated by Johnson et al., may need to consider adaptations to their practice to include ACEs and enhance their assessment approach as well as diagnosis and intervention, thereby supporting the mental health of youths. Counselors who register for this Continuing Professional Development will learn to understand the predictive relationship between the number of ACEs and demographics in relation to parent-reported depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems. Considerations are presented for best practices, including an ACE assessment for parents to complete for children and for when assessment ACEs are presented. Additionally, as a result of registering for this CE, counselors will be able to discuss implications for counseling professionals and know the implications for future research.
Learning Objectives:
1.Understand the predictive relationships between the number of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and demographics in relation to parent-reported depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems.
2.Discuss the implications for counseling professionals.
3.Know implications for future research.

Title:
Childhood Psychological Maltreatment, Sense of Self, and PTSD Symptoms in Emerging Adulthood
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Justin R. Watts, PhD; Nicholas R. Lazzareschi; Yanhong Liu, PhD; and Deirdre O'Sullivan, PhD
Description:
Child maltreatment (CM) is a significant public health issue that negatively impacts behavioral, physical, and psychological health across the lifespan (MaWatts et al., 2023). More specifically, Watts et al. stated that child psychological maltreatment (CPM) has been identified as a greater predictor of more severe PTSD symptoms when compared to other types of abuse; however, they explain that current treatments for CM associated with PTSD may not be as effective and that research on PTSD specifically associated with CPM is lacking. This Continuing Professional Development resources provides counselors with a rationale to understand the relationships among childhood psychological maltreatment (CPM), sense of self (SOS), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), know counseling interventions that focus on SOS during emerging adulthood for survivors of CPM who experience PTSD symptoms, and explain specific counseling practice and research implications.
Learning Objectives:
1.Understand the relationships among childhood psychological maltreatment (CPM), sense of self (SOS), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
2.Know counseling interventions that focus on SOS during emerging adulthood for survivors of CPM who experience PTSD symptoms,
3.Explain specific counseling practice and research implications

Meta-Analysis of Counseling Outcomes for Youth With Conduct

Title:
Meta-Analysis of Counseling Outcomes for Youth With Conduct Disorders
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Bradley T. Erford, PhD; Gerta Bardhoshi, PhD; Margaret Ross; Chelsea Gunther, MEd; Kelly Duncan, PhD
Description:
Twenty-one clinical trials were synthesized using a random effects model substantiating that counseling generally produces a medium effect in treating conduct disorder in youth at termination (d+ = .30-.57; k = 28). However, the lasting effects at follow-up were unclear because few follow-up studies (k = 13) have been conducted (d+ = -.53 - .58), and only two randomized controlled follow-up studies were located. No effects of moderating variables were evident, and implications for counseling practice and outcome research were addressed.
Learning Objectives:
1.Examine the efficacy of counseling in reducing conduct disorder symptoms in school-age youth.
2.Analyze the duration of symptom reduction in youth diagnosed with conduct disorder following treatment termination

Title:
Sensation Seeking and Adolescent Drinking: Do Protective Behavioral Strategies Lower Risk?
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Diana M. Doumas, PhD; G. Michael Russo, PhD; Raissa Miller, PhD; Susan Esp, PhD; Nadine R. Mastroleo, PhD; and Rob Turrisi, PhD
Description:
Underage drinking is a significant problem among U.S. adolescents, with 58.5% reporting alcohol use by their senior year and 17-19-year-olds engaging in the highest rates of risky drinking. Because adolescent alcohol use is associated with various negative socioemotional consequences, identifying and intervening is pivotal. Counselors may be the first professional contact for teens and are uniquely positioned to provide relevant treatment plans. This Continuing Professional Development examines the relationship between sensation seeking and hazardous drinking and the impact protective behavioral strategies have on reducing hazardous drinking among high school seniors.
Learning Objectives:
1.Understand the relationship between sensation seeking and hazardous drinking and the impact protective behavioral strategies (PBS) have on reducing hazardous drinking among high school seniors.
2.Discuss counseling implications, including assessment and harm reduction strategies focusing on PBS to reduce hazardous drinking among high school seniors.
3.Know implications for future research.
