Action-Packed CBT: More Walk Less Talk (Ottawa 2017)

October 26, 2017 October 27, 2017 PDT

logo for action packed cbt workshop

2017 OTTAWA, CANADA –  two day / 12 hour workshop


In this action-packed workshop, Christine A. Padesky PhD demonstrates a variety of action methods that can enhance CBT and other forms of psychotherapy. Like her other “Show Me” workshops, she structures her teaching around clinical demonstrations rather than lectures. For each segment of the workshop, she demonstrates particular methods so participating therapists can see exactly how Padesky conducts “action-packed” CBT. The Structured exercises that follow help therapists learn through experience how to implement action-oriented approaches. Thus, “More walk and less talk.” Even so, there is ample time for questions, answers, and discussion to promote a more complete understanding of how to apply these approaches with diverse clients in a variety of settings.
