Default ABCT, Washington, D.C., 11/17/05 - 11/20/05

The annual convention of the Asscoiation for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (formerly AABT) is always a good conference. It provides a great opportunity to catch up on new developments in CBT, to hear the big names present, to attend high quality workshops and symposia, and to discuss clinical issues. AABT is now an APA-approved CE provider so psychologists can get continuing education credit as well.

This year it's in Washington, D.C. November 17-21, 2005.

Registration fee - $100, 6.5 CEs
Warren Salkin, Ph.D., LICDC
Some of the most common issues affecting couples who present for relationship counseling involve betrayals. While the issues affecting such behavior as well as dysfunctional responses to them may be related to individual issues, this cognitive-behaviorally based workshop will focus on the sets of skills couples need to achieve new levels of intimacy and connectedness. Therapists should be able to offer much more than help deciding whether to stay or leave Objectives: Participants will learn principles of effective intervention with couples; will learn techniques specific to intervening in cases of infidelity, anger and jealousy; will learn techniques specific to intervening in cases of infidelity, anger, and jealousy; and will be able to apply specific techniques in the treatment of distressed couples.

Let Me Off the Rollercoaster: Cognitive Therapy with Bipolar Disorder
Saturday, April 29, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. , N. Olmsted, OH
Registration fee - $100, 6.5 CEs
Barbara Fleming, Ph.D.

Cognitive Therapy is well established as an effective treatment for depression, but Bipolar Disorder presents additional challenges. Mood swings and manic episodes call for more than standard Cognitive Therapy of depression. Recent research has shown that, with appropriate modifications, Cognitive Therapy can be quite effective with Bipolar Disorder. This workshop will presume that participants are familiar with Cognitive Therapy for unipolar depression and will focus specifically on treating Bipolar Disorder. Objectives: Participants will be able to explain current cognitive-behavioral perspectives on Bipolar Disorder and contemporary intervention strategies. They will understand techniques for dealing with manic episodes and mood swings, harm-reduction strategies, relapse-prevention techniques, and principles for combining Cognitive Therapy with medication in the treatment of Bipolar Disorder.

East Meets West: Mindfulness- Based Interventions in CBT
Friday, May 5; 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. , N. Olmsted, OH
Registration fee - $100, 6.5 CEs
James Pretzer, Ph.D.

One of the hottest topics in contemporary CBT is the incorporation of mindfulness techniques borrowed from Buddhist and Christian meditative traditions into research-based psychotherapy approaches. Prominent examples include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Relapse Prevention, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and the use of mindfulness techniques in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Proponents argue that mindfulness techniques provide a radically different means of reducing emotional distress and dealing with dysfunctional cognitions. Objectives: Participants will understand contemporary approaches to integrating mindfulness techniques into CBT, will be able to summarize current empirical evidence regarding the use of mindfulness in CBT, and will gain experience with a number of mindfulness-based interventions.

Beck Meets Freud: Cognitive Therapy in Depth
Monday, May 15; 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. , N. Olmsted, OH
Registration fee - $100, 6.5 CEs
James Pretzer, Ph.D.


Cognitive Therapists dealing with childhood traumas, transference and countertransference, dreams, and fantasies? Many therapists think of Cognitive Therapy as a symptomatic treatment that cannot really address “deep” issues such as resistance, family of origin problems, and the complexities of the therapeutic relationship. This workshop is designed to help therapists of all orientations deal more effectively with these complex issues. It is appropriate both for experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists and for therapists who are experienced with other psychotherapeutic approaches. Objectives: Participants will develop an understanding of Cognitive Therapy's approach to the complexities of the therapeutic relationship, family of origin issues, and dealing with dreams, fantasies, and imagery. They will be able to modify cognitive-behavioral approaches in order to apply them more effectively when "deep" issues complicate therapy.
