It is encouraging that each decade brings fresh knowledge and new findings to advance the successful treatment of depression and suicide. After 35 years of teaching these topics, Christine Padesky decided to take a fresh look at CBT for depression and suicide. She contacted several leading researchers to identify best practice guidelines; especially those that might be new to even experienced CBT therapists.

Although “best practices” always include some familiar practices, this workshop is designed for therapists at all experience levels. It emphasizes strategies to manage common obstacles encountered by therapists working with depressed and suicidal clients. For example, Padesky’s clinical demonstrations and group exercises regarding behavioral activation teach principles and methods designed to target the inertia, pessimism and overwhelming fatigue that often discourage depressed clients from engaging in activities. Instead of only teaching the basics of Thought Record use, this workshop targets knowledge gaps and common errors made even by therapists who have used this method for many years: How do you identify and test images? What do you do if the hot thought is a core belief? What guideline teaches clients to find the most useful evidence that doesn’t support the hot thought? In addition, Dr. Padesky integrates her seminal work on strengths-based CBT to illustrate how depressed and suicidal clients benefit when interventions build on existing strengths.

All therapists need to have a high level of skill in assessment of suicide risk. Most of the second day of the workshop teaches suicide assessment and interventions, including methods for working with suicidal imagery. Past participants especially appreciated that structured interviews and interventions are demonstrated and practiced; key forms are included in the workshop handouts. Drawing on evidence-based methods pioneered by Aaron T. Beck and David Jobes, Dr. Padesky illustrates interventions that can lower suicide risk, reduce suicide attempts, and increase client safety.

[lead]Cutting edge ideas for clinical practice, all based in current research.[/lead]

In today’s healthcare environment it is especially important to use therapist resources as efficiently as possible.

Learn:

  • To focus on specific client symptoms to create “smarter” therapy
  • How spacing sessions can reduce the “discontinuation effect”
  • When group therapy can be as effective as individual therapy
  • To structure CBT to maximize client participation, skill development and relapse risk reduction
  • To choose interventions that are most likely to help in the time available
  • How to engage a client so he or she gives these interventions a full opportunity to help
  • What interventions are most effective for pessimism, hopelessness and negativity so these do not produce a drag on therapy’s effectiveness

To enhance learning, participants observe skillful demonstrations by Dr. Padesky and then try out best practice methods in role plays and guided exercises. Detailed handouts help sustain learning post-workshop. While depression and suicide are serious topics, this workshop is designed to be engaging, fun and uplifting. It provides an evidence-based foundation for therapist practice so you can honestly communicate positive therapy expectations to your depressed clients. Join us for this state of the art workshop that reveals a wealth of “Best Practices in CBT for Depression and Suicide.”

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

  • Use a structured interview to assess suicide risk
