Dr. Don Meichenbaum will identify, describe, and demonstrate Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) Core Tasks of Psychotherapy. These Core Tasks expand the power of the CBT orientation and enable therapists to have more success with their most challenging clients. The Core Tasks include ways to establish and monitor the quality of the therapy relationship, ways of conducting psycho- education, nurturing hope by means of collaborative goal-setting, teaching coping skills, employing generalization guidelines, and addressing the impact of victimizing experiences. Dr. Meichenbaum will use video demonstrations and other examples to show how expert therapists integrate CBT Core Tasks with challenging clients. Attendees will also learn how the Core Tasks can enhance their cultural competence and integrate spirituality within their psychotherapy.
