Disruptive Students

February 9, 2011

I just read an newspaper article from California State Fullerton that I thought was great.  A group of students, concerned about disruptive and violent behavior among their peers, formed what is essentially a risk assessment team designed to address disruptive behavior of fellow students.  Though it may not be unique, this is the first time I have heard about a college campus dealing with students’ disruptive behavior in this manner.   This is very similar to the workplace violence risk assessment model I frequently present about.  Just last week I presented to the Chesapeake Chapter of EAPA about this and about a half year ago I presented to the Chesapeake Chapter of SHRM.

Benefits of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

February 5, 2011

Last year a great article was published in the American Psychologist touting the benefits of psychodynamic psychotherapy.  Proponents of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) have always done an amazing job of demonstrating the positive outcomes associated with CBT, but psychodynamically oriented therapists and researchers have traditionally not done as well at showing how this more traditional mode of therapy benefits patients.  What I really like about this article is that it offers a really nice explanation of how psychodynamic psychotherapy works.
