School psychologists are typically taught counseling in one course during their graduate career and only have limited training in applying counseling techniques. This presentation seeks to improve the skill set of current practitioners by providing an overview of exposure and response prevention (ERP) and teaching them how to apply this technique in school settings. Literature related to implementing ERP in racially minoritized youth and youth presenting with comorbidities will be disseminated. Participants will also learn of ethics related to proper implementation of ERP techniques for youth.
This session will help participants to:
- Navigate the ethical parameters of ERP.
- Adapt ERP as a treatment modality within school settings.
- Demonstrate techniques that enhance the therapeutic alliance when using ERP.
