Dear NCPA / NPSI Friends,
In navigating the CPT changes, I believe you will find this website interesting and helpful:
CODING, BILLING AND DOCUMENTING PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

Psychologist" database, formerly known as "On-Line
Referral Service." This newly revamped feature provides
a more comprehensive profile of private practice information
which we believe will better service our members and public
inquiries. Visitors will also find helpful community resources, a user-friendly method of contacting us and a simplified manner in
apply for membership.

are necessary to access this section. As a current member,
you will be provided with a temporary ID and password

Case presentation: Ionas Sapountzis, Ph.D.
Director – Master’s Program in School Psychology, Adelphi University
Attachment theory has become an integral part of clinical practice. One
particularly relevant element of attachment theory is the social and
emotional impact of fear. Fear compels a child to seek safety and holding
for reassurance and soothing. In our treatment of both children and adults,
it can be helpful to imagine moments of fear arousal in early caregiver
relationships. By facilitating understand of current suffering in light of
early adaptations employed for emotional survival, we can help our patients
articulate these re-lived experiences. By finding language that brings
moments of the past alive in the present through mentalization, we help our
patients take the first steps toward interpersonal transformation.
The conference will feature:
- Video of interventions with at-risk mothers and their infants,
- As well as excerpts from psychotherapy with an adult.
