PDF brochure available directly from Cognitive Workshops
CBT Boot Camp 2.0 features innovative participant exercises that approach familiar topics in novel ways. Although there is thematic overlap with the first CBT Boot Camp workshop, the majority of the clinical demonstrations, exercises, and content of this workshop are different. Workshop learning is enhanced through many live clinical demonstrations, structured participant exercises, and handouts. As always, this workshop is infused with Dr. Padesky’s signature warmth, humour, and an emphasis on practical clinical tips.
Participants in this workshop will be among the first therapists in Canada to learn directly from Dr. Padesky about how to link the new version of Mind Over Mood with evidence based treatment protocols.
In addition, participants learn how to use MOM2 (Mind Over Mood, 2nd Ed., Greenberger & Padesky, release date October 2015) in therapy to work more effectively with depression, anxiety disorders, anger, guilt, and shame. Previous familiarity with this workbook is not required. Participants learn how MOM2 can boost therapist skillful practice at the same time it boosts client skill development. Differences from the first edition of this best-selling workbook include: expanded sections on anxiety management including fear ladders, safety behaviours, imagery, mindfulness and acceptance methods; integration of evidence based methods drawn from positive psychology such as gratitude diaries and happiness ratings; new chapters on goal setting, relapse management, and an expanded chapter on using behavioural experiments to test assumptions.
Achieve greater CBT fitness in a wide variety of areas including structure, alliance, behavioural experiment.
