CBT Intensive: Treating Anxiety and Depression, Part 2

Peter Bieling
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Note: Participants are welcome to register for both Parts 1 and Part 2 together or for either part independently.

Part 1 (April 19-20): Evidence-Based Treatment of Anxiety and Related Disorders
Led by Martin M. Antony, PhD

The first two days of the Four-Day Intensive CBT Course on the Treatment of Anxiety and Depression provide training in evidence-based strategies for treating a range of anxiety and related disorders in adults and children. Dr. Antony will emphasize the importance of case formulation and core treatment principles that cut across anxiety-based problems, including OCD, panic disorder, PTSD, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and health anxiety.

You will learn about effective cognitive-behavioural methods, including cognitive strategies, exposure-based techniques, and relaxation-based treatments, as well as new and emerging psychological approaches (e.g., mindfulness-and-acceptance-based strategies). The use of medication will also be reviewed, with an emphasis on how it can be combined with psychological treatments. Strategies for dealing with treatment resistance (such as motivational interviewing) will be discussed, as will ways of dealing with complex cases and comorbidity. Techniques will be illustrated using video-recorded therapy sessions, and participants will receive a detailed handout.

You will learn -
• About effective cognitive approaches for managing anxiety and related disorders
• Exposure-based techniques
• About mindfulness-and-acceptance-based treatments for anxiety
• How to use motivational interviewing to enhance clients' engagement
• How to adapt treatment for particular anxiety presentations

This workshop may be eligible for Continuing Education Credits/Units (CECs/CEUs) by professional organizations in Canada/Ontario serving mental health professionals. Please click here for more information.

Part 2 (May 30-31): CBT and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Depression
Led by Peter Bieling, PhD

Depression and symptoms of depression form the most significant mental health issue worldwide, with both prevalence and incidence continuing to rise. The scope of the problem is enormous, and the breadth of clinical presentations of depression, just as challenging for many clinicians. Over two days, you will learn to customize a treatment strategy based on two of the most effective approaches: CBT and mindfulness-and-acceptance-based strategies. To match the wide variety of presentations in depression, a variety of specific interventions will be discussed, ranging from simple self-monitoring and bibliotherapy, to behavioural approaches, to more fulsome treatment protocols for acute depression, as well as maintenance treatments and relapse prevention. Video and case vignettes will be used to demonstrate techniques throughout the workshop.

You will learn -
• How to use a simple approach to assess severity and chronicity of depression in order to match the best intervention to the person's needs
• The basics of behavioural activation strategies
• How to teach cognitive monitoring and thought disputation
• How to create acceptance and more adaptive core beliefs and assumptions
• About maintaining wellness and better functioning through mindfulness

This workshop may be eligible for Continuing Education Credits/Units (CECs/CEUs) by professional organizations in Canada/Ontario serving mental health professionals. Please click here for more information.
