Description
Cognitive therapy posits that the unpleasant affects and problematic behaviors found in depression are the consequence of negative beliefs and maladaptive information processing. This intermediate workshop will focus on strategies to help clients identify those negative beliefs and use their behaviors to test their accuracy. It will consist of case examples and participant role plays supplemented with videotape examples. We will cover basic strategies suitable for less-complicated clients and recently developed strategies suitable for work with more complicated personality disordered clients.
Learning Objectives
1. Determine the relation between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in specific problematic situations.
2. Recognize the causal role played by thoughts in determining negative affects and problematic behaviors.
3. Activate patients to engage in behaviors that increase their sense of pleasure and mastery.
4. Learn to evaluate the accuracy of their specific negative beliefs in specific situations.
5. Identify the core beliefs and dysfunctional attitudes that underlie specific negative beliefs.
6. Use behavioral experiments to test the accuracy of negative and self-defeating beliefs.
7. Assist clients in learning how to behave in a more assertive fashion in important relationships.
