Vic Pub Discussion: What is process-based CBT
- Nikolaos Kazantzis
Moving into the next generation: what is process-based CBT exactly?
This presentation will discuss the “next generation” of process research in clinical psychology and emerging process-based CBT models. Come along and hear of new understandings of the therapeutic relationship in CBT.
Since the first publication of the “Great psychotherapy debate” in 2001, we have been led to believe that common factors across models of psychotherapy explain why clients improve.
Four decades of research on psychological therapies suggest that the major proportion of the variance in outcomes remains unexplained.
Current research is considering that the alliance may temporally proceed subsequent symptomatic changes, and that there is a complex interplay between the alliance and other in-session processes that have theoretical importance (e.g. collaborative empiricism and Socratic dialogue in the broad family of CBTs).
Furthermore, latest process models suggest that techniques produce their treatment effects via the relational context in which they exist, redefining our understanding of process-outcome relations.
