Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.

The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.

Nicholas Covino, PsyD, Conference Coordinator

The changing needs of our society add to the already burdened health care system. These needs present both a call to action for health care professionals and an opportunity for professional practice. This program will include three panels:

• Children and Families, with Robert Kinscherff, PhD, JD, Moderator; Jessica Henderson Daniel, PhD, ABPP, Marylou Sudders, ACSW and William Beardslee, MD;

• Inpatient Mental Health, with Robert Jampel, PhD, Moderator; June Wolf, PhD, Charles Reilly, EdD and Kevin Donnelly, PhD; and

• Clinical Research and Teaching, with Claire Fialkov, PhD, Moderator; Terence Keane, PhD, James Donovan, PhD and Martha Stark, MD.

These experts will address the clinical needs, best practices, challenges and career opportunities for mental health professionals as well as reflect on their own professional careers in the field. The day will conclude with the presentation of the Dr. Stephen D. Hayes Community Mental Health Award followed by a discussion

Upon completion of the program the student will be able to:

  1. Identify the mental health needs of children, inpatient mental health and underserved ethnic minorities.
  2. Alter their practice to include some strategies to respond to mental health needs for children or underserved minorities.
  3. Understand some of the rewards and satisfactions of a career in public sector mental health
