Adapting Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for people with cognitive impairment

Presenter: Dr Dana Wong

Come to this pub discussion to build your knowledge of CBT for use with cognitive impairment.

CBT can be challenging for clients with cognitive impairment because of its demands on learning and memory, mental flexibility, and metacognitive awareness. We now have evidence that despite these challenges, CBT can be adapted for people with cognitive impairments caused by conditions affecting the brain, to successfully treat anxiety and depression.

This presentation will explain what these adaptations are and how they can be applied in clinical practice. Current research on therapeutic processes and therapist strategies and competencies identified to be important for effective adapted CBT will also be presented, along with illustrative case examples.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.

Registration 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start, upstairs at the Terminus Hotel – this pub discussion will be approx. 1 hour in duration.

Non-members can join now and enjoy free registration, plus all the other advantages of AACBT Membership!
