CBT Boot Camp: Building Core Clinical Competencies (Denmark 2013)
May 6, 2013 – May 7, 2013 PDT

CBT Boot Camp is especially designed for novice and intermediate level CBT therapists who want to build and strengthen core clinical competencies as well as understand more clearly how these competencies function as the foundation for all CBT protocols.

COURSE OVERVIEW: Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) offers a rapidly expanding collection of therapy protocols tailored to specific disorders. Learning these can be a daunting task for CBT therapists. Fortunately, all CBT treatments involve core competencies (Roth & Pilling, 2007). Once these competencies are mastered, it becomes comparatively easy to learn protocols for specific client disorders.
By the end of Boot Camp, participants will achieve greater CBT fitness in the areas of: therapy structure and alliance, client observation and self-monitoring, awareness of safety behaviors versus good coping, assigning and debriefing relevant homework, and use of guided discovery methods (such as Socratic dialogue, thought records, and behavioral experiments).
Dr. Padesky also demonstrates therapeutic responses to common therapy obstacles that often derail CBT progress. Following her demonstrations, participants engage in “obstacle courses” which are exercises designed to help therapists apply the appropriate core competency in the face of these challenges.
CBT Boot Camp features innovative participant exercises that approach familiar topics in novel ways. Workshop learning is enhanced through live and video 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.
