Invited Keynote Presentation

  • Address by Christine A. Padesky, PhD, on Action and Dialogue in Psychotherapy: Dance of Equals (60 min)
  • Presented for the Australian Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy
  • Speaker: Christine A. Padesky, PhD /

The evolution of Cognitive Behavior Therapies (CBT) has often involved a tug-of-war between those who emphasize behavioral interventions, those who focus on cognitive inquiries and dialogues, and those who advocate for mindfulness and acceptance. Padesky shares her current integrative vision of CBT as a collaborative quest for discovery that can incorporate all these perspectives. In her approach, therapists emphasize action therapy methods to elicit emotion, full body experiencing, beliefs, imagery, behaviors and values within interpersonal and cultural contexts in order to foster deeper learning and change. Padesky offers a collaborative, strengths-based model in which the full power of psychotherapy is revealed when action therapy methods and Socratic dialogue interact in a dance of equals.
