CAMH Summer Training Institute: CBT Essentials for Depression, Social Anxiety and Panic Disorder

Description and Learning Objectives

WINNER OF THE COLIN WOOLF AWARD 2007
 
Our past participants say:
 
“Most interesting workshop; I am impressed. Thank you”
“Very useful experience; great presenters!”
 
Treating psychiatric problems can be challenging; fortunately there are effective psychotherapies that can help. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated treatment, which has been demonstrated to be highly effective for clients experiencing mood and anxiety symptoms.  Numerous controlled clinical studies have demonstrated that successful use of CBT strategies is associated with significant symptom alleviation. CBT is a present-focused, skills-based intervention in which clients learn to identify how their thought processes and associated behaviours can contribute to problematic mood states, in order to provide clients with the ability to intervene by using effective strategies.
 
This workshop will provide an overview of CBT treatment strategies for working with clients experiencing depression, panic disorder and social phobia.  The presenters will provide an overview of how clinicians can work with clients to engage in effective case formulation, individualized goal setting, and to implement effective behavioural strategies (e.g., behavioural activation, behavioural experiments, exposure) as well as engaging in cognitive restructuring.  The workshop is interactive, allowing opportunities for in-session examples, as well as providing opportunities for clinicians to practice these skills during small group activities. In this workshop, the most essential elements of effective treatment are discussed in terms of how to implement each intervention strategy, while also considering the underlying rationale for the intervention and how to optimize treatment.
 
The workshop is presented by Dr. Lance Hawley, C.Psych. and Dr. Judith Laposa, C.Psych., the staff psychologists for the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Clinic and the Anxiety Disorders Clinic at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. CAMH is a teaching hospital, that is devoted to empirically validated treatment, training and research. CAMH is affiliated with the University of Toronto.
