Cognitive and behavioural treatments are the most studied psychological interventions for a wide range of psychological problems. This workshop provides an in-depth understanding of evidence-based CBT approaches to the conceptualization and treatment of anxiety, depression, and anger. This discussion also includes panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, trauma, and anger-related problems such as maladaptive perfectionism.
You will receive comprehensive training in a wide range of approaches including cognitive strategies (such as behavioural experiments, cognitive reappraisal, shifting core beliefs, working with imagery), behavioural treatments (such as exposure, behavioural activation, relaxation training, social skills training, problem solving), and mindfulness-and-acceptance-based approaches.
Other related therapies such as dialectical behaviour therapy and emotional regulation therapy will be discussed, as will communication strategies for dealing with high levels of emotion in your clients and motivational enhancement techniques for managing resistance and treatment ambivalence.
The workshop will emphasize case conceptualization and transdiagnostic approaches. Many of the treatment strategies will be highlighted with video demonstrations, and detailed handouts will be provided to participants.
