8:30am check-in on the day for a 9:00am start – we look forward to seeing you at this workshop as a part of the AACBT National Tour with Dr Basten!
In this one-day workshop, Chris isolates key areas of clinical skill that will help the developing therapist to apply their existing knowledge of therapies in effective ways that respect individual differences in clients and deal with common clinical challenges.
The overarching educational goal is to help the clinician confidently apply manulized therapies in real-life challenging situations.
The skills areas targeted in the workshop are:
- strengthening the alliance and working relationship;
- enhancing client willingness and motivation to do hard work using the principles of motivational interviewing and acceptance and commitment work;
- the creative use of individually tailored and insightful case formulations; and
- working at ‘every level’ of cognition, from meta-cognition, through automatic thoughts, hidden assumptions and rules to schemas.
There will be opportunities for experiential learning and practice.
