Workshop 2 Challenging Cases: Formulation and Treatment Strategies for Anti-social and Criminal Behaviour


Across different treatment settings, practitioners routinely see clients who harm others. Such cases pose a range of challenges that are quite different from addressing the traditional mental health needs of those suffering from mainly internalizing problems such as anxiety and depression.

Join CBT Australia and international author, Raymond Chip Tafrate, Ph.D., for fast paced, interactive, virtual learning sessions that will provide you with the foundational knowledge and tools to better understand, manage, and prevent harmful behaviours. These intensive workshops cover a range of clinical topics such as conceptualizing intervention with intimate partner violence and abuse (IPVA) cases, managing dysregulated anger and addressing antisocial and criminal conduct.

The most efficient way to develop new skills is through practice – learning by doing. Therefore, all workshops in this series are highly interactive, incorporating structured learning activities including case examples, audio/video-recorded work samples, small group exercises, and “real”-plays. Class sizes are limited to allow for practice opportunities in a virtual learning environment. The goal is for you to be able to transfer and incorporate newly learned knowledge and skills into your real-world interactions.

The materials covered are applicable to a range of professionals such as psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors, psychiatric nurses, graduate students, case managers, probation/parole officers, and other professionals working with clients in private practice, outpatient mental health centres, hospitals, day reporting centres, halfway and transitional housing programs, prisons, and probation/parole systems.

Investment (AUD): $300 (GST inc) per workshop, OR $580 (gst inc) for both workshops
