He recently received a Life-time Achievement Award from the Clinical Division of the American Psychological Association for his work on suicide prevention.
In this advanced CBT workshop, Dr. Meichenbaum, will discuss a critical analysis of the controversies concerning the effectiveness of psychotherapy (evidence-based versus relationship-focused interventions). He will propose a resolution by demonstrating how to implement the Core Tasks of Psychotherapy or what “expert” therapists do. Dr. Meichenbaum will highlight the critical role that a Case Conceptualization Model plays in forming assessment and treatment decision-making, especially when conducting risk assessment of suicidality and aggressive behavior.
You will learn how to implement integrative treatments with challenging clients who have and comorbid disorders such as PTSD, substance abuse, Borderline Personality Disorders, depression/suicidality and anger/aggressive behaviors. Learn effective skills to engage clients, anticipate and address treatment non-adherence and increase the likelihood of treatment success. Detailed Handouts and video case demonstrations of specific treatment procedures will be used throughout the workshop. A “TO DO” list will be provided of ways attendees can increase their psychotherapeutic “expertise.”
