Canadian Workshops

Cognitive Workshops has been running professional training in Canada since 1995. We generally run one two-day workshop in each of Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver every year, usually in the fall. While these workshops are large-scale, they very much focus on practical, clinical tools for therapists, using a hands-on format involving numerous role-plays and exercises, accompanied by extensive handouts.


We are bringing Christine Padesky back to Canada for a new workshop this fall, a master class in which she demonstrates Strengths-Based CBT in detail over the course of 2-days.

As Dr. Padesky explains it, a "master class" means the teacher is the master, not the students! For experienced clinicians the workshop offers the opportunity to pay close attention to Dr. Padesky's 'on-line' decision-making and compare it to their own, (the assumption being made that they are already very familiar with treatment protocols).  Less experienced clinicians will have the opportunity to see a 'master' at work and to understand better how the therapy is applied moment to moment.

Dates are:

Vancouver – Oct 7-8/14

Ottawa — Oct 28-29/14

Toronto – Nov 5-6/14

Details will be posted by mid-April.
