Target Mood-specific Skills Using Mind Over Mood, 2nd Ed (Canada 2023)

March 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm PDT

: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

Time zone shown is for Pacific Time. Event time at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is 1:00 – 4:00 pm Eastern Time.

3 HOUR VIRTUAL WORKSHOP presented by Christine A. Padesky, PhD

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 specific MOM2 chapters in different orders depending upon the moods addressed (depression, anxiety, anger, guilt & shame). Participants learn evidence-based guidelines for client skills practice, when certain interventions can be counter-therapeutic, methods for navigating common obstacles, and a 3-step plan for relapse management.

Therapists who own MOM2 are encouraged to bring it to the workshop.
