Topic: In this presentation David outlines the nature and role of CBT ‘formulation’, a powerful tool for making sense of psychological problems so as to help both client and therapist to think clearly about them and come up with a therapeutic plan.
Later chapters show you how to carry out an assessment using a CBT model, and how to use the information from that assessment to develop a CBT formulation in collaboration with your client. These strategies are illustrated by a role-play of an initial assessment session & a subsequent session on developing the formulation.
Presenter: David Westbrook– a founder member and a former director of OCTC. David was a BABCP accredited therapist, trainer & supervisor. He was one of the editors of the Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy, and together with Helen Kennerley and Joan Kirk he wrote a new book for beginners, An introduction to CBT: skills & applications.
Level: Basic: Suitable for IAPT high and low-intensity trainees or workers who understand the basic CBT concepts, but wish to improve their understanding of this particular tool – the role play will help you turn theory into practice.
