Aeschi West: Basic Principles in Working with Suicidal Patients” will be the inaugural theme of a Mayo Clinic-sponsored three-day conference in Vail, Colorado, May 30-June 1, 2013. Organized around highly interactive lectures, videotaped interviews, seminars, and workshops, a limited number of participants will come to the Rockies to learn an innovative approach for working with suicidal patients. Drawing upon principles developed in a series of conferences at Aeschi, Switzerland, the Aeschi approach emphasized the importance of therapist-client collaboration in eliciting narratives of mental anguish that culminate in suicidal behavior.
This course will present biological models of addictive disorders and evidenced-based treatments of addictions. Topics will incorporate new research on the biological basis for genomic subtypes of addiction. Emphasis will be on the translation of basic science to the clinic, strategies for pharmacotherapy, incorporating a biologic framework of addiction into addiction psychoeducation and programming, and individualized approaches to the treatment of addictions with comorbid psychiatric diagnoses. Outcomes based research using clinical electronic databases to enhance follow-up will also be discussed as well as the bioethics guiding the assessment and treatment of addiction as an illness.
This interactive course will focus on recent developments in the diagnosis, assessment, and multimodal treatment planning for pediatric mood disorders and related conditions such as suicidal behavior, addressing bullying, substance abuse, and trauma. Course faculty will emphasize an evidence based approach and highlight cutting edge research findings with regards to treatment such as structured psychotherapeutic techniques, recent pharmacologic research, and emerging brain stimulation therapies in adolescent depression. The morning session will include video vignettes to guide interactive, focused didactic sessions. This will be followed by an afternoon session composed of breakout sessions to reinforce and elaborate on group didactic sessions. These sessions will also facilitate challenging case discussions (generated by participants and course faculty) and treatment planning for children and adolescents with affective disorders.
Mayo Clinic and Essentia Health have gathered a world-class lineup of experts to continue the collaboration of employers and medicine to take care of our injured and ill workforce. Together, we can prevent needless work disability by helping people stay employed. Objectives of this course include explaining the impact the physician has on preventing needless work disability; establishing how improved communication among the health care provider, employer and employee contributes to optimal handling of injured or ill employees; assessing the negative impact that poor handling of the return-to-work process has on patients and the economy at large; and demonstrating insight and ideas to help prevent needless work disability in the future; explaining the physician’s role in defining appropriate disability-management criteria for injured or ill employees by creating a common language and understanding among business owners, human resource personnel, managers and supervisors, and medical professionals. We can interact, share ideas and move forward in the process of change that will lead to a reduction in needless disability in our workforce.
The aim of this course is to provide state-of-the-art education on management of acute psychiatric problems with an intended audience of psychiatrists, psychologists, and allied health along with family practice, internal medicine, and emergency department physicians.

This course offers a broad array of lecture topics beginning with a review of basic genomics and progressing to clinical applications. It is designed for individuals with an interest in understanding the ways in which genes not only affect mental illness, but impact disease course and prognosis. Pharmacogenomic principles that guide the treatment of psychiatric illness will be specifically highlighted.
This dynamic three-day interactive program is designed to identify specific training needs; and build skills and confidence in diagnosing and treating pediatric behavioral health problems.
Six months following this course, there will be a follow-up, clinical case-based, distance learning program.
Using group teleconferences to consult with nationally known pediatric psycho- pharmacology and pediatric experts on a biweekly basis, participants engage in case-based clinical rounds that help address problems and questions encountered in daily practice.
There is also a comprehensive toolkit and a set of Web-based learning tools designed specifically for this training. The toolkit includes user-friendly handouts and guides from national experts along with relevant assessment instruments, dosing and side effect charts, medication comparison tables, and informational handouts for patients and parents.

This one-day workshop is co-presented by John G. Gunderson, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Director of the Center for the Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, McLean Hospital; and Brian A. Palmer, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Mayo Clinic. The course offers training in clinical management of borderline personality disorder, and will teach psychiatrists and other clinicians what they need to know to become competent providers who can derive satisfaction from treating these patients.
Participants will: Apply techniques learned to better inform borderline
patients and their families about the disorder's etiology, favorable prognosis, and good response to treatment; Describe behavioral symptoms, including anger, devaluation, and self-injury, as reflective of the patient's core interpersonal hypersensitivity; Employ both primary and secondary targets when considering medications for comorbid disorders; Engage borderline patients as collaborators in their treatment.

At a time when more pediatric behavioral health care is being delivered by primary care clinicians, many providers like yourself, ncluding pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician's assistants, as well as adult-focused psychiatrists are recognizing the need for more training in the use of psychiatric medications in children and adolescents. The REACH Institute (REsource for Advancing Children's Health), under the directorship of Peter S. Jensen, M.D., has partnered with leading researchers and practitioners to develop an innovative Mini-Fellowship to help your practice achieve confidence in delivering pediatric behavioral healthcare.
This activity is being designed to accommodate providers who are treating a lower-income child population.
Mayo Clinic faculty, board certified in Psychosomatic Medicine or medical disciplines, will review principles of psychiatric diagnosis and treatment of patients managed in medical and surgical inpatient and outpatient settings. The target audiences are family medicine physicians, general internists, psychiatrists, and selected medical and surgical specialists and subspecialists who manage conditions with significant behavioral or psychiatric contributions.
This CME event is an innovative program meant to enhance the understanding of addiction through the use of a theatrical performance in association with the Guthrie Theater. This CME event will build on the success of the May 2012 Windows into Mood program held at the Guthrie Theater. This course will again utilize personal perspectives of addiction through Melissa Gilbert's description of addiction in herself and family member and via "Long Day's Journey into Night", the autobiographical classic by Eugene O'Neill. These powerful personal stories combined with latest information on addiction and treatment are meant to enhance understanding and emotional depth for clinicians. For non-clinical/general public attendees, please open/download registration instructions on left side of web-page.
