CBT Boot Camp 2.0: Target Mood-Specific Skills Using Mind Over Mood 2 (Los Angeles 2016)
May 5, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm PDTONLY FOR DMH PSYCHOLOGISTS
2016 Los Angeles, California, USA – one day / 6 hour workshop
Evidence-based practice requires therapists to teach mood-specific skills and follow different treatment guidelines depending upon the mood targeted. Clients experience high rates of comorbidity and so there is an advantage to supplementing therapy with a workbook like Mind Over Mood, 2nd Edition, 2016 (MOM2) which addresses a variety of moods and teaches both general and mood-specific skills. This workshop shows therapists how to maintain fidelity to treatment protocols by assigning MOM2 chapters in different orders depending upon the moods addressed. Therapists learn which mood-specific skills are linked to enduring treatment efficacy for depression, anxiety disorders, anger, guilt and shame.
In addition, Padesky demonstrates how to navigate common obstacles that arise during use of: behavioral activation and thought records (depression); fear ladders, exposure, identification of safety behaviors, and behavioral experiments (anxiety); assertive communication and forgiveness (anger); seriousness ratings, responsibility pies, reparations and self-forgiveness (guilt and shame). Guidelines are presented for how and when to add methods drawn from acceptance therapies, mindfulness and positive psychology to these classic CBT approaches. Participants learn evidence-based guidelines for client skills practice, when certain interventions can be counter-therapeutic, and a 3-step plan for relapse management.
