logo for 2017 ABCT conference

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: 90 minute mini workshop presented at the 51st Annual Convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT)

Mini Workshop 8: Integrating Mind Over Mood (2nd Ed) with Evidence-Based Practice

PRESENTER: Christine A. Padesky, PhD, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Huntington Beach, California
Padesky brief biography

DESCRIPTION: The Second Edition of Mind over Mood (2016) integrates empirically supported methods of acceptance, mindfulness, imagery, and positive psychology with an updated presentation of behavioral activation, relaxation, and cognitive restructuring approaches for mood management. Padesky demonstrates and highlights improvements in the Second Edition and shows how the structure of this new edition is designed to make it easier for therapists to: (a) individualize the chapter reading order to match evidence-based protocols and (b) use mood measures included in the book to track client progress.

Dr. Padesky shares evidence-based tips regarding which skills practices lead to improvement in symptoms and which can actually lead to worsening of symptoms. Learn how to flexibly use the empirically based client skills manual, Mind Over Mood(2nd ed) (2016) in both therapy and community education settings to improve dissemination of empirically supported change principles.

Participants will be able to:

  1. TEACH common mood management skills in different orders for different presenting issues in accordance with empirically supported change principles
  2. IDENTIFY two clinical situations in which it is advantageous to link cognitive restructuring, acceptance, and positive psychology interventions
  3. PRACTICE using a new mood measure that can be used with positive as well as distressing moods
