Introduction

This workshop on CBT+ offers a thought-through, integrated approach to therapy using the best of CBT, ACT, DBT and CFT*.

CBT and the Third Wave therapies of ACT, DBT and CFT all offer evidence-based approaches to therapy. But how can we put them together to deliver the best for what works for our clients? CBT+ is a therapeutic approach integrating the best of all these therapies by understanding the psychological processes which cause us distress and the psychological processes which help us thrive.

NAVIGATES is an acronym to help the therapist progress through the stages of CBT+ therapy. Name the problem and build Awareness of the clients’ thoughts, feelings, behaviours and body sensations. Clarify Values and Investigate the function of the problem behaviours. Set small Goals to move towards values and away from problem behaviours. Work on self Acceptance, Tackle Trauma, use Exposure to Emotions and teach new Skills.

Day 1

In Day 1 we look at the four therapies and demonstrate an integrated framework for formulation, based on the psychological processes, which cause us distress. We also look at what new processes we can put in place for our clients, to help them thrive. We introduce NAVIGATES, starting to work through examples and use participants’ own cases.

Day 2

Day 2 continues to explore NAVIGATES and also addresses complex presentations, using case studies and participant examples to illustrate the CBT+ approach. There will be role plays, videos and live demonstrations.
