This approx. 63 min CBT@Home webinar was recorded in December 2020.
Repetitive thinking is an established maintenance factor in depression and anxiety. This talk will cover current themes in the literature – from the conceptualisation, content and measurement of repetitive thought – and highlight their relevance to clinical practice.
This talk will help clinicians identify when their clients are engaging in unhelpful repetitive thinking. It will draw attention to the value of assessing repetitive thinking with transdiagnostic measures in order to capture repetitive thinking irrespective of diagnosis or the presence of comorbidity. This will ensure that self-report responses meaningfully index the severity and frequency of repetitive thinking, monitor fluctuations over the course of therapy sessions, and reflect any pre-post intervention changes. Finally, the talk will encourage clinicians working with clients expectant and new mothers to assess and target repetitive thinking as part of CBT for perinatal anxiety and depression.
Key Learning Objectives:
- An understanding of the theoretical conceptualisation of repetitive thinking and its role as a maintaining factor in depression and anxiety.
- Knowledge of evidence of the consequences of abstract repetitive thinking.
- An understanding of the rationale for assessing repetitive thinking with transdiagnostic (rather than symptom-focused) measures, particularly in clients with comorbidity.
This is a free event for all AACBT members; bookings are only required for non-members to receive the link.
