    Public Safety Wellness Consultation:
    the what, the why, and the how to of providing this
    service for public safety agencies
    Wednesday July 13th, 2022  9am-11am
    2 Ethics CEs

    Description of Event: 
    As demand for wellness consultations grows quickly, New Hampshire needs providers competent to deliver. This ethics continuing education program is aimed to build a network of NH mental health providers prepared to deliver this service while also educating the public safety leaders that want to hire them. 

    Participants will learn what a wellness consultation is, why public safety agencies are quickly adopting this service as a benefit offered to their employees, and how to execute this service ethically and with the intended outcomes of reduced mental health stigma, demystification of the “therapy space”, and access to emotional health education and self-awareness for the employee. 

    Learning Objectives: 
    At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: 
    1)     Identify three (3) goals of a wellness consultation as they pertain to both an annual wellness consult and a post-critical incident wellness consult.
    2)     Describe the primary ethical challenges presented by employment driven consultations with first responders. Specifically, the limits to confidentiality as they pertain to public safety professionals, scope of the consultant role as it differs from treatment or assessment, the importance of informed consent, and the ethical limits to communication with the employee’s agency.

    Program Description:
    This workshop overviews the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5. Critical diagnostic developments in the Text Revision include the return of Mood Disorders, the inclusion of ICD-10 codes for Suicidal Behavior and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury, and the addition of Prolonged Grief Disorder, among others. These inclusions are joined by diagnostic revisions or clarifications to dozens of additional disorders, in addition to more comprehensive attention to issues of race, equity, and discrimination. 

    Learning Objectives:
    1.  Identify at least three new inclusions in the DSM-5-TR.
    2.  Discuss the rationale for at least three of the diagnostic manual's novel inclusions or revisions.
    3.  Distinguish grief from depression.
    4.  Describe the prevalence and criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorder.
    5.  Explain the rationale for the change from Gender Identity Disorder to Gender Dysphoria.
    6.  Compare and contrast the DSM-5-TR with the DSM-5 and the ICD-11.
