Topic: These presentations guide the therapist through the stages of CBT for panic and agoraphobia. Role plays and lecture are used to show how to draw out a collaborative formulation, socialise the patient to the cognitive model, design effective behavioural experiments, and use imagery techniques to work with upsetting memories and images.
Presenter: Ann Hackman – particularly known for her pioneering research, writing and teaching on the role of imagery and memory in the anxiety disorders, and Freda McManus – currently the Director of the University of Oxford’s Postgraduate (Masters level) Diploma in Cognitive Therapy, and a Clinical Research Fellow in the University of Oxford’s Department of Psychiatry.
