Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy 2018

We just got back from the ABCT Annual Convention and had a great time as usual. The conference program was full of great research on mood disorders, stress, obesity, physical activity, and appetite awareness. Highlights included seeing former students (hi Trey, Kate, and Tasha) and supervisors. I learned about Dr. Linda Craighead’s Appetite Awareness Training and how it has been modified for use with children: Training Your Inner Pup. I have already used some principles with my 7 and 9 year olds so have very preliminary data that it is appealing! Next steps for this project include coding the qualitative body image interviews to identify specific types of body image stress. In the meantime, check out this article for the foundation to this work.


We presented a poster on the impact of parent-child stress and marital conflict on the body image of diverse youth that is available here: ABCT Poster_11.8.18. Next steps for this project include coding the qualitative body image interviews to identify specific types of body image stress. In the meantime, check out this article for the foundation to this work: Mediating effects of parent-child relationships in the prediction of internalizing symptoms in urban youth. We’re already looking forward to next year’s conference!
