This introductory workshop presents the theory and practice of Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP), a third-wave psychotherapy designed to treat persistent depression. The empirical methodology of CBASP, which is to facilitate and measure exactly what and how much is being learned by the patient during the course of therapy, will be presented. Participants will learn the major strategies of CBASP, which include a structured developmental history, situational analysis (SA), and two techniques using therapist disciplined personal involvement (DPI) and the ethics of such.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe the rationale for and basic methodology of CBASP, including the learning theory assumptions and ethical issues related to components of the disciplined personal involvement.
2. Demonstrate the three basic strategies of CBASP, including obtaining significant other history, conducting the situational analysis and utilizing disciplined personal involvement strategies to promote felt emotional safety.
3. Discuss new applications of CBASP in the form of modifications for group administration and to treat comorbidities such as PTSD and addiction and address multicultural issues.
4. List hypothesized psychological and neurophysiological mechanisms of action of CBASP and ethical implications.
