Effectively Addressing Poor Impulsive Decision Making


Presented by Frank Weber, MS, LP



Children's Home Society

July 24, 2018



5 CEUs

(clinical and generalist)


Workshop Description:


Many of the clients we deal with have troubles related to making poor decisions in the moment.  This leads to unnecessary spending, failure to provide adequate supervision, dangerous home environments, pregnancy, gambling, criminal charges, substance use, and a variety of other problems.  This session will also specifically address poor impulsive sexual decisions as it relates to accessing pornography as we are dealing with so many children, adolescents and adults who are accessing porn regularly and then offending.  This presentation is intended to provide Social Workers a framework for addressing clients who make poor impulsive choices.  In addition, attendees will be provided with a list of strategies and self-statements to share with clients to help them make better choices in the moment.  Strategies will also be introduced which clients can use to make it more difficult to make poor impulsive choices.


Learning Objectives:


  1. Attendees will leave with strategies to assist clients who struggle with impulsive anger to help reduce both the intensity and frequency of outbursts.
  2. Attendees will have a framework for helping clients safety plan for situations which lead to impulsive choices, so clients are prepared to make the right choices when the situation presents itself.
  3. Attendees will have a guideline for helping clients reduce stress, as reducing stress and anxiety reduces poor impulsive choices.  This will include a variety of self-statements to make in the moment of decision.
