ECPs Gather at Oven in Lincoln

Great time at last night’s ECP gathering at the Oven in Lincoln! Several ECP’s met to socialize, and discussed issues relevant to psychologists including NPA’s advocacy with Heritage Health and recently passed PSYPACT, reimbursement concerns,  and healthcare and benefits for psychologists. The conversation also included the new two-part EPPP exam and how it will impact new psychologists seeking licensure in Nebraska.

NPA Spring Conference –
“Not All that Blows Up is Bipolar (But some of it is…):  Evidenced-Based Assessment and Treatment for Bipolar Disorders in Youth and Young Adults” with Eric Youngstrom, Ph.D.

June 8, 2018 –
Scott Conference Center, Omaha
With remote internet streaming in Scottsbluff


Bipolar disorder is a chronic, recurring, serious, and potentially life-threatening disease. If left untreated, episodes are likely to grow more severe and resistant to treatment. It also is one of the leading causes of disability and early death in the U.S.A., and not just because of its strong connection with suicide. It is also one of the most commonly undetected or misdiagnosed conditions in mental health, with years passing between when the illness causes problems versus getting appropriate treatment.

This workshop summarizes the literature, using expert review and meta-analyses, focusing on clinical implications about the presentation in youths, practical evidence-based assessment tools, differential diagnosis, and how to select effective treatment options. The workshop uses a case-centered approach to illustrate how the information changes clinical practice.
