When CBT Fails
Focus of the course: Whilst CBT enjoys strong empirical support across a large range of psychopathology, a significant proportion of patients show poor treatment response. In many cases, this poor response can be argued to occur due to patient characteristics/traits which make them poor candidates for standard CBT protocols. Recent research has confirmed the status of Schema Therapy as an evidence-based treatment for a personality disorders using ‘extended schema mode conceptualizations’. Robert will provide a brief outline of recent advances in formulation in Schema Therapy of chronic axis 1 problems (e.g. Eating Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and Depression), before demonstrating how within-session mode management strategies can be used to overcome common treatment roadblocks to evidence-based therapy, including detaching, over-analyzing and extreme avoidance.
We expect this workshop to reach full capacity so please book early to avoid disappointment.
