CBT for Psychological Disorders
The workshop provides participants with an opportunity to increase knowledge and practice in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) as applied to high prevalence psychological disorders. Particular emphasis is given to assessment, behavioural formulations and specific interventions such as graded exposure therapy, behavioural activation and behavioural experiments.
The focus of this workshop is to recognise and differentiate prevalent anxiety disorders and depression using a structured CBT assessment process. Participants will learn how to provide specific treatment rationales, explain graded exposure therapy for specific disorders and construct behavioural formulations to guide treatment plans. Participants will have opportunities to observe and engage in role-plays and receive feedback and guidance on clinical skills and interviewing techniques that will inform and guide applications in clinical settings.
All participants receive a certificate of participation.
Also available as a non-award topic where students may be eligible for credit towards postgraduate CBT programs.
