Advanced Applications in Cognitive Therapy (BUI2B)

A Four-Day Intensive Training

This is the workshop you've always wanted to attend!!

During the 15 years we've sponsored David's workshops, IAHB has been inundated with requests for a more in-depth training opportunity – something that would allow time for practice, individual attention, and exploring relevant personal and professional issues. This summer, David will be presenting just such a workshop.

This intensive training experience is designed to help you become a better therapist.  You and a select number of highly motivated healthcare professionals will receive at least 32 hours of training and personal coaching in the latest psychotherapy techniques.  Lectures and demonstrations by a master therapist followed by the opportunity to practice the techniques with your colleagues will leave you with a deeper, richer appreciation of the practice of psychotherapy as well as a variety of specific tools you'll be able to use immediately in your own work.

At the conclusion of this workshop, you’ll be better able to—
  • Implement a wide variety of specific and highly effective clinical interventions
  • Pinpoint and modify deeply held beliefs and schemas
  • Describe the importance of transdiagnostic, patient-centered approach to cognitive therapy
  • Diagnose and reverse the most common types of therapeutic resistance
  • Use your own vulnerabilities and shortcomings to increase your therapeutic effectiveness
  • Describe how “radical acceptance” can trigger profound change
  • Utilize potential relapses to deepen therapeutic change
