BOOKINGS NOW OPEN FOR LONDON WORKSHOP IN 2016
We are now accepting registrations for CBT Boot Camp 2.0, being given in London UK on 23-24 May 2016.
This updated version of Dr. Padesky’s very popular workshop, CBT Boot Camp (first offered in London in 2010) is especially designed for novice and intermediate level CBT therapists who want to build and strengthen core clinical competencies as well as understand more clearly how therapist skills parallel skills that we want to teach clients. By the end of Boot Camp, participants will achieve greater CBT fitness in the areas of: therapy structure and alliance, improving client ability to observe and self-monitor, assigning and debriefing relevant homework relevant to specific client moods, and use of guided discovery methods (such as Socratic dialogue, thought records, and behavioural experiments).
In addition, participants learn how to use the recently released 2nd edition of Mind Over Mood (Greenberger & Padesky) in therapy to work more effectively with depression, anxiety disorders, anger, guilt, and shame. Participants in this workshop will be among the first therapists in Europe to learn directly from Dr. Padesky about how to link this new version of her self-help workbook with evidence based treatment protocols.
This will be our final workshop in London as
Dr. Padesky has plans to give fewer workshops, travel less, and write more.
