Contemporary CBT Series Workshops

Date: 13 Sep 2018 - 15 Sep 2018


CBT (cognitive-behaviour therapy) should be a collaborative and creative process between therapist and client, where we help our clients become curious about any unhelpful cognitive or behaviour patterns that might be creating or prolonging their emotional suffering. Once these are identified, we then further assist our clients to experiment with new cognitive and behaviour strategies, to discover their emotional impact.

Some of the cognitive and behaviour strategies that clients can implement might be traditional CBT methods like thought records, behavioural activation, or graded exposure via behavioural experiments. However, there are other contemporary CBT practices that can also be very useful, such as using

1. Imagery-based strategies to enhance the emotional impact of therapy;

2. Acceptance and mindfulness strategies integrated within CBT; and

3. Metacognitive therapy approaches to help clients overcome repetitive unhelpful thinking styles.

These days CBT is not one thing. It is not just thought records plus positive behaviour change, although these methods are still of great value and should not be underestimated. CBT is a rich, varied and broad therapy, and this series of three 1-day workshops are designed to reflect recent innovations and the contemporary practice of CBT.

These are stand-alone workshops, however each workshop occasionally references other workshops in this series. Participants can choose to attend any one of the workshops, however participants will get the most out of attending all three.
