The Utah Psychological Association 
Presents:
Trauma, Loss, and Traumatic Growth: Applying Conservation of  Resources Theory through Social-Environmental and Behavioral Intervention

Presented by Stevan Hobfol, Ph.D ABPP

This will occur via livestream with Zoom and you will be sent a link on June 24, 2020 to join the webinar. The webinar begins at 9:00 A.M.

Presentation:  9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. 

6.0 CE Hours

Overview: 

Conservation of Resources (COR) theory has become one of the two leading stress theories.  Studies have repeatedly found it to have the strongest predictive value across stress levels.  Unlike appraisal-based theories, COR theory emphasizes the real-world interplay of personal, social, condition, and energy resources AND their appraised component.  The workshop will outline the principles of COR theory, methods of assessing resource loss in clinical and research settings, and present research outlining the role of resource loss and gain in settings as diverse as work, schools, disaster, terrorism, and health.  The use of multi-level (social-environmental and cognitive-behavioral) intervention approaches to halt or slow resource loss cycles and enhance resource gain cycles will be detailed. We will examine the impact and intervention following lifetime history of trauma sequences, chronic personal and social resource loss, and challenge concepts of post-traumatic growth.  How we develop a positive psychology of intervention will be a major focus of the workshop based on the emerging literature on positive psychology.

Note: This will be more of a “why and underlying processes workshop,” and less of a “how to” workshop, recognizing that both kinds of workshops are important.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the principles of Conservation of Resources Theory
  2. Understand the central role of resource loss in the stress process
  3. Be able to identify key personal and material resources and their objective and subjective components.
  4. Be able to identify and intervene to halt or slow loss cycles following trauma through social-environmental and behavioral approaches.
  5. Be able to identify and intervene to enhance resource gain cycles and promote traumatic growth.

Presenter Biography: 


Stevan Hobfoll, Ph.D. ABPP

Dr. Stevan Hobfoll has authored and edited 14 books, including TRAUMATIC STRESS, THE ECOLOGY OF STRESS, STRESS CULTURE AND COMMUNITY, and TRIBALISM: THE EVOLUATIONARY ORIGINS OF FEAR POLITICS.  In addition, he has authored over 300 journal articles, book chapters, and technical reports.  He has been a frequent workshop leader on stress, war, and terrorism, stress and health, and organizational stress. He has received over $18 million in research grants on stress.

Dr. Hobfoll headed NATO workshops and co-chaired the APA National Commission on Stress and War during Operation Desert Storm, guiding policy about the treatment of U.S. military personnel and their families.  He was a member of Disaster Mental Health Subcommittee: National Biodefense Science Board (NBSB) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.   In the wake of the November 2009 terrorist attack on Fort Hood, Dr. Hobfoll was engaged by the U.S. Army as a principal consultant for recovery and resiliency for Fort Hood and the surrounding community.  His Conservation of Resources theory has been adopted as a basis for the U.S. Marine Corp’s stress manual and by the senior-most planning elements of the U.S. military forces for their understanding of stress and resilience in U.S. Forces.  Finally, his 5 Principles of Mass Casualty Intervention has become the world standard, adopted by the World Health Organization, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and countries and NGOs around the world.

Dr. Hobfoll has been honored with multiple lifetime achievement awards for work on traumatic stress, and work on stress and health. He is currently in private practice, focusing on treatment of traumatic stress and forensic evaluation in the Salt Lake area and Chicago (h-index 85; 50081 citations, 5-11-20).
