Intervening on Interpersonal Risk Factors for Anxiety, Depression and Suicide

Workshop Date
Friday 1 June 2018, 9:00am to 12:00pm (registration from 8:30am)

Humans have a basic need for interpersonal connections. Although there are individual differences, humans must maintain interpersonal relationships to derive a sense of security and belongingness. When interpersonal needs are disrupted, there is an increased risk for physical and mental health disorders. This workshop will review interpersonal theories and discuss how they relate to various forms of psychopathology ranging from anxiety to mood disorders including suicide. We will also discuss newly developed interventions designed to address interpersonal risk factors. This translational research will highlight various Web applications and how to use them for targeted prevention.

Workshop Outcomes
At the end of the talk, attendees will be able to:
1. Explain how interpersonal risk factors relate to various forms of psychopathology
2. Describe newly developed Web and smartphone applications addressing interpersonal factors
3. Review evidence for the clinical efficacy of addressing interpersonal facets for several clinical disorders
4. Develop a plan for incorporating interventions for interpersonal risk factors in clinical practice
