"In this training video, Toronto-based CBT experts Drs. Mark Fefergrad and Peggy Richter demonstrate proven interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). They provide a didactic overview of CBT and, in a series of clinical vignettes, demonstrate how to support clients through reducing the intensity of their negative thoughts and practicing realistic exposures to feared situations. Richter and Fefergrad work with Kathy, a 40-year-old woman whose severe panic attacks have led to her quitting her job and staying reclusive at home. The therapists' annotated sessions with her illustrate the effective use of empathic reflection, the automatic thought record, the downward arrow technique, Socratic questioning, and cognitive restructuring. You'll also learn how to collaboratively develop homework assignments, activity scheduling, and graded tasks to support treatment goals, and you'll get a theoretical review of CBT's cognitive model. By watching this video, you will understand the theoretical foundations of CBT and its application to anxiety; learn how to use CBT tools such as the automatic thought record and activity scheduling; and discover ways to apply CBT techniques such as the downward arrow, Socratic questioning, and cognitive restructuring. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
