John B. Arden,PhD & Lloyd Linford, PhD ~ Online Web Lecture ~ 4hrs
Recent advances in the neurosciences, developmental psychology and psychotherapy research have altered our understanding of how and why people change. This training examines a new model that incorporates these recent findings and integrates them into psychotherapeutic practice. Using this ‘brain-based therapy’ paradigm, the training explores evidenced-based treatment strategies for depression, anxiety, and ADD, and treatments for the many patients who present with significant distress but no DSM diagnosis. Participants will learn a new system for case formulation that moves beyond the traditional theoretical approaches. Teaching methods include: PowerPoint lecture, discussion, graphics, video demonstrations and interactive exercises.
By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will understand:
• how successful psychotherapy affects different parts of the brain.
• the dynamics and limitations of outcomes research and evidence-based techniques for specific disorders.
• aspects of traditional therapies that are relevant to efficacious
therapy and aspects that are counter-therapeutic.
