    Pain is formally defined as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage. Two important consequences of this definition are that pain (a) is an emotional experience and is therefore influenced by other emotional states and (b) can occur without tissue damage.  According to the CDC, 11% of adults experience pain daily.  There has been a dramatic increase in prescriptions from primary care physicians to manage varied types of pain.  According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 48 million people have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons in their lifetime.  The CDC reports that 11.5 million American’s, age 12 and older, misuse prescription opioids in 2016.  Additionally, drug overdose deaths have continued to rise leading to more than half a million people from 2000 to 2015 and 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.  There are more trips to the ER as well as admissions to treatment programs.  At the Menninger Clinic, we see more patients admit with substance use disorders, often coming from prescription drugs.  Treatment becomes complicated if a patient has a co-morbid condition.  For psychiatric patients, the reality of these co-morbid conditions and risk for abusing medication remain high.  For those patients who experience either acute pain or chronic pain effective management of their symptoms is critical yet there is a fine line of effective prescribing.

    Recently, the Quality Resources department at Menninger investigated a “close call” situation related to interdisciplinary opiate management. This situation involved several disciplines, including Physicians, Pharmacy, and Nursing.   As a result of our focused review, we are recommending that Menninger host an internal educational event focused on opiate education, including prescribing education among several learning objectives.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Consider the challenge of opiate prescribing to manage pain versus potential for being manipulated to continue Opiate Use Disorder.
    • Discuss Opioid REMS or any new regulations on opioids that pertain to prescribing via inpatient and/or outpatient.
    • Review the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose.
    • Identify areas in the EHR to clarify written effective orders.
    • Reinforce the use of TeamSTEPPS to communicate patient safety concerns.


    1.5 contact/credit/clock hours have been designated by The Menninger Clinic for the following disciplines:

    Physicians

    Psychologists

    Registered Nurses

    Social Workers

    Licensed Professional Counselors

    In this lecture, Dr. Fonagy, one of the founders of mentalization-based treatment (MBT), will look at the techniques associated with the MBT approach for group psychotherapy. He will focus on the aims of group therapy as well as the specific techniques and processes used by MBT group therapists to enhance mentalizing in a range of patient groups. The introduction to mentalizing groups (MBT – I), which is a structured approach taken usually before initiating individual and group therapy using an MBT approach, will also be covered. 

    Dr. Fonagy also will discuss specific alternative structures which developers of MBT have adopted in relation to group therapy, including the structured approach developed in Norway and the more psychodynamic approach taken by colleagues in the Netherlands. Recordings of group therapy taken as part of the trial of MBT for antisocial personality disorder currently ongoing in UK probation services will be shown.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Understand the unique features of the MBT approach to group psychotherapy.
    • Identify key features of the MBT – I approach to introducing patients to the nature of mentalizing and the basis for mentalization-oriented therapy.
    • Recognize, and practice, simple techniques developed by structural group therapists using MBT.
    • Appreciate the difference between MBT and other dynamic approaches to group psychotherapy.

    Menninger's Family Education Day offers patients' families the opportunity to learn about psychiatric, behavioral and addictive disorders to elevate their understanding of treatment approaches. Additionally, participants will learn ways to strengthen understanding within the family. Equally important is the chance to meet other families going through similar experiences.

    The day's educational sessions are led by Menninger faculty and staff and cover topics that include attachment, mentalizing, psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, recovery planning and more.

    From interpretation of early conflict and trauma, contemporary, expressive psychotherapy expanded and divided in two directions with a more here and now focus: 1. A cognitive-behavioral basis and 2. A bilateral patient-therapist attunement.  This talk demonstrates the second direction in detail with two treatment resistant patients and their therapist, also a patient.  The shift from interpretation to containment to holding and attunement is elaborated.  All three patients continue their resistance, then begin finding new words to connect with internal and external experience and feel more real.  Theoretical issues are discussed and the relevance to inpatient work brought forward.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Articulate what is the range of unrepresentable states.
    • Describe how the role of deprivation and abuse in the word deficit, moves beyond basic attachment/separation ‘individuation’ issues.
    • Identify the role of psychotherapy in finding words:  interpretation versus attunement; containment versus holding.
