The focus will be on the cognitive-behavioral treatment of adults with affective disorders (anxiety, depression, anger). Such treatment procedures as cognitive restructuring, problem-solving and stress inoculation training will be demonstrated.
This workshop presents the information of cognitive, behavioral and marital systems therapies to treat today's complex cases of sexual dysfunction. Video of treatment procedures and case consultation will be included.
The focus of this workshop is on problems in therapy: overdependency, ''negative transference,'' acting out, therapeutic impasse and resistance. The same dysfunctional beliefs that maintain psychological disorders interfere with therapeutic change. Specific strategies pinpoint these beliefs as well as the cognitive distortions. This workshop will describe treatment variations for the difficult disorders such as borderline personality, chronic depression and severe agoraphobia.
This workshop will present cognitive experiential and behavioral techniques to help women and men in their intimate relationships. There will be a special emphasis on personal and work-related male/female relationships and how to deal with negative reactions to "out of role" behavior, such as women's assertiveness and men's expressions of intimacy. Live demonstrations will be offered.
Observations of thousands of treatment sessions indicate that an innate processing system is physiologically geared to take disturbance to mental health. EMDR is an eight-phase methodology that catalyzes and accelerates the healing process. The clinician, therefore, is repositioned to the role of guide and facilitator. Treatment tapes will illustrate the method and majesty of the client's unfolding.
During the five decades that I have been a psychologist, I have seen a series of psychotherapeutic practices come and go. Today, one in three Americans has visited one or another of the 250,000 accredited practitioners making offerings. Not only has the number of therapists burgeoned, but also the varieties of therapy have become a veritable smorgasbord. Assumptions underlying various bursts of therapist zeal will be explored and linked to prominent cultural and social forces in recent history.
