CBT for Personality Disorder 2022

Description

Presented by Professor Kate Davidson. People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) are frequently referred to health services with high levels of emotional distress, self-harm behaviours and relationship difficulties. People with these problems have poor health and mental health and are disadvantaged occupationally and socially. Over the past two decades, psychological therapies have been found to be helpful with problems faced by those with BPD. Pharmacological therapies on the other hand are generally not recommended.  Psychological therapies have differed in intensity, length of treatment and in complexity of theory and techniques. CBTpd is a brief effective evidence-based therapy for people with both borderline and antisocial personality disorder. CBTpd takes a developmental perspective, engaging the person in producing a narrative formulation of their unique circumstances and problems. Treatment techniques focus on emotional and behavioural regulation, usually in the context of interpersonal relationships. Developing a non-judgmental, authentic and warm therapeutic relationship is central in CBTpd.

This workshop will run from 10:00am until 4:00pm.

Working with Mental Imagery in CBT and other Psychotherapies

Description

Presented by Dr Victoria Pile. Emotional mental imagery is a powerful part of our mental landscape. Given its capacity to depict, process, and generate emotional events, mental imagery can have an important role in psychological therapies. Using psychological techniques to work with mental imagery –including distressing past images or a lack of positive future imagery –can be highly effective. Yet, techniques using mental imagery are often neglected in routine practice, in favour of verbally based techniques. This might be for several reasons, including concerns that mental imagery can be highly distressing for the client or lack of confidence in using imagery-based techniques. This workshop will provide an introduction to working with mental imagery in CBT and other psychotherapies. It aims to increase understanding of when and how to explore mental imagery with clients. There will be opportunities to formulate the role of imagery in client’s presenting difficulties as well as practice imagery-based techniques, for example imagery rescripting.

This workshop will run from 10:00am until 4:00pm.

Helping Anxious Parents to Raise Confident Children

Description

1 day workshop presented by Professor Samantha Cartwright-Hatton.

Despite the elevated risk of anxiety disorders in children of anxious parents, we currently do very little to intervene in this process. This workshop will outline a new intervention aimed at anxious parents who want to learn techniques for raising confident children. In a randomized controlled trial of the intervention, children whose parents received the intervention were 16% less likely to have an anxiety disorder six months later, compared to children whose parents were in a control group. This workshop is primarily aimed at clinicians working with anxious adults but may also be useful to clinicians working with anxious children.

 

Cost including refreshments and CPD certificate is £130.00

 

This workshop will run from 9:30 until 4:30, with registration opening from 9:00.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT)

Description

1 day workshop presented by Dr Ruth Baer.

MBCT is a family of evidence-based skills training programmes that combine mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive-behavioural exercises to reduce distress and increase well-being. Rooted in both contemplative traditions and psychological science, MBCT programmes are typically provided in group format with weekly sessions exploring a sequence of themes designed to build skills over time. This one-day workshop provides an introduction to MBCT. After briefly exploring its history and origins, we will consider its theoretical foundations and the evidence base supporting its effects. Important topics in the research literature will be discussed, including outcomes, mechanisms of change, and potential adverse effects. Mindfulness practices and exercises will encourage an experiential understanding of mindfulness and the intended learning that may arise.

 

Cost including refreshments and CPD certificate is £130.00

 

This workshop will run from 9:30 until 4:30, with registration opening from 9:00.

When It Is Darkest: Understanding Suicide Risk

Description

Timings of the event: 10.00am – 4.00pm

1 day workshop presented by Professor Rory O’Connor

Suicide and self-harm are major public health concerns with complex aetiologies which encompass a multifaceted array of risk and protective factors. There is growing recognition that we need to move beyond psychiatric categories to further our understanding of the pathways to both. In this workshop, you will be helped to make sense of this complexity as well as highlighting the evidence of what works to prevent suicide.

Timings of the event: 10.00am – 4.00pm

 

1 day workshop presented by Dr Amita Jassi and Dr Benedetta Monzani

BDD is a debilitating condition, characterised by intense distress and preoccupation with imagined or slight flaws in appearance. Symptoms typically emerge in adolescence and can include time-consuming repetitive behaviours and marked avoidance. BDD in young people often results in major functional impairment, reduced academic performance and school withdrawal. It is associated with high rates of comorbidity, particularly major depression, and a significant proportion of young people attempt suicide

The aim of the workshop will be to provide up to date knowledge and skills in evidence-based assessment and intervention for children and adolescents with BDD. The emphasis of the day will be on recognising and assessing BDD and learning the CBT strategies which are currently viewed as best practice.

Cognitive Therapy for Social Anxiety Disorders in Adults and Adolescents

Description

Time: 10.00 am – 4.00 pm

 

1-day workshop presented by Professor David Clark

 

Social Anxiety Disorder is common and remarkably persistent in the absence of treatment.  It typically starts in childhood or adolescence and frequently leads to occupational and education underachievement.  Interpersonal relationships are impaired. Dissatisfaction with the way that life is progressing often triggers depressive episodes and there is a heightened risk of alcohol and drug abuse. This workshop provides a comprehensive practical guide to the treatment of both adults and adolescents. It starts with an overview of the cognitive model, focussing on its treatment implications.  Each of the steps in treatment is then described and illustrated with case material and videos of treatment sessions.
