Pharmacists Requirements for Credit: Participants can earn up to 7.25 contact hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education credit for this program Course Description: This course is designed to update clinicians on the care of the intoxicated, overdose, or exposure patient. There are approximately 1 million ED visits annually for drug poisoning while most acute care hospitals do not have a Medical Toxicologist on staff to guide care, often relying on phone consultation from a local Poison Control Center. However, management decisions are often needed prior to Poison Control consultation or rely on bedside clinical judgment that phone consultation cannot provide. This course is designed for a wide range of clinicians, including emergency physicians, hospitalists, intensivists, residents, midlevel providers, nurses, pharmacists and prehospital personnel. Topics will include novel antidotes, updates on management of cardiovascular drug intoxication, management of withdrawal syndromes, emerging drugs of abuse, common medication errors, issues with analytical methods, and updates on the opioid epidemic. As many overdose/intoxicated patients are admitted to ICUs, topics will not only address the emergency care, but also management during the critical illness and hospitalization. This course is a collaboration between the Divisions of Medical Toxicology at BIDMC, BWH, and CHA; the Division of Pharmacology/Toxicology at Boston Children’s Hospital; the Department of Emergency Medicine at MGH; the Regional Center for Poison Control and Prevention for MA and RI; and the Northeastern University School of Pharmacy. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Summarize the managment of common toxicologic presentations such as agitated delirium and drug-induced bradycardia • Discuss issues and updates in the management of alcohol withdrawal syndrome • Develop strategies to improve your ability to evaluate pediatric poisoning when it presents in practice • Summarize updates on the opioid epidemic including options for treatment and recovery • Recognize common dangerous medication errors • Utilize new antidotes and novel emergent medications

Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists • Chaplains/Clergy • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: Debilitating and complex, shame is among the most destructive of human emotions. Depression, violence, anxiety - it emerges in a variety of ways that are profoundly damaging to your clients’ lives and the lives of those around them. Working with clients experiencing unhealthy shame presents you with a formidable therapeutic challenge. How do you effectively manage something that hides in the shadows … that by its very nature is so excruciating that it pushes people toward avoidance? How do you heal something that lurks behind masks of anger and defensiveness? How do you break through to suffering individuals who’ve spent a lifetime viewing themselves as wrong, unlovable, and unworthy of getting better? Stop letting shame derail the therapeutic process and transform how you work with shame-driven clients. Attend this seminar and help your clients end avoidance, face their shame, and rewrite their story of dysfunctional self-worth and condemnation into one of compassionate acceptance. Key Benefits of attending: • Teach clients to manage shame without resorting to destructive measures. • Reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity with mindfulness. • Cultivate secure self-attachment with somatic approaches. • Discover how shame complicates trauma treatment and how addressing shame can help you expedite recovery. • Build resiliency to shame with interventions based on empathy, forgiveness and compassion. Course Objectives: • Enhance client attunement with clinical strategies that replicate conditions for healthy attachment. • Characterize how shame complicates the treatment of trauma and specify how shame can be worked with in traumatized clients. • Evaluate how shame can be addressed in your treatment plans with self-forgiveness interventions that can help facilitate recovery. • Communicate how anxiety generated by feelings of shame can be managed with breathing techniques that can be taught in-session. • Establish how depressed clients can manage shame generated negative emotions with imagery-based compassion exercises. • Analyze how mindfulness can be incorporated into therapy with shame-prone clients to reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity.
