⭐ 10th May 2018 (1 days) – Single Session Integrated CBT

CPD Event title: Single Session Integrated CBT

Brief Description Of Event: The assumption that therapy should always be long term has been challenged repeatedly over the last twenty-five years. The difficulty is that Single Session Therapy has become associated in many therapists minds with being “money driven”, “superficial” and “poor quality”. This workshop sets the record straight and enables participants to learn how to work with clients for one session and achieve realistic but positive results. An integrated CBT approach combining belief and inference challenge with mindfulness and acceptance strategies will be presented.

Learning Objectives: The workshop will outline the basis of this new Single Session Integrated CBT (SSI-CBT) approach, where it can and can’t be used, practical suggestions to follow and the application of unique therapeutic elements, such as the provision of session transcripts and recordings for the client to take away and use. Real life (not role played) demonstrations of a single session approach with volunteers will be presented. Issues covered include:
• The objectives of SSI-CBT
• The do’s and don’ts of SSI-CBT
• Indications and contraindications for SSI-CBT
• The components of SSI-CBT
• Setting the stage for SSI-CBT
• Creating a focus in SSI-CBT
• Problem assessment and goal setting
• Using client strengths
• Doing the work with a future emphasis
• What happens after the session and evaluation
• Necessary therapist skills
• Live demonstrations of SSI-CBT
