Description: The purpose of this workshop is to assist psychologists in taking an active role in their patients’ physical as well as mental health, serving as important players in preventive health care and attending to the myriad emotional, physical, developmental, and familial, and cultural challenges posed by physical illnesses and serious injuries. Important intersections between psychological and physical health will be explored, with particular attention given to the leading causes of death in the U.S.: cardiovascular disease, cancer, and pulmonary diseases. Evidence-based preventive health strategies will be reviewed, with an eye to how psychologists can become integrated with their patients’ primary care health teams. In addition, psychologists will learn strategies to assist their clients with new diagnoses of serious medical illness and how to help cultivate strength, resilience, and acceptance in those with chronic and terminal illnesses. Finally, psychologists will consider how they can be steadfast in supporting patients at the end of life, while attending to countertransference issues and their personal grief.
