CE Webinar: “Psychopathy: Providing Treatment and Managing Risk”
Psychopathic individuals are overrepresented in correctional settings at a rate 15 to 25 times higher than in the general population. They are more likely to engage in violent behavior, break institutional rules, drop out of structured programs and disrupt routine operations in correctional settings. Correctional professionals should be familiar with how this personality disorder manifests itself interpersonally and behaviorally. The speaker will discuss the clinical and behavioral traits of psychopathy, and then describe a treatment unit (the Behavior Management Unit) designed for psychopathic individuals as an alternative to long-term segregation. Clinical examples will be used to illustrate personality characteristics and treatment interventions.
Presented by Joel Andrade, PhD, LICSW, CCHP-MH, director of clinical operations – mental health at Centurion, LLC, the webinar offers 1 hour of continuing education credit for physicians (ACCME), nurses (ANCC), psychologists (APA) and CCHPs. April 30, 2019, from 1 pm to 2 pm CDT.
