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.
I’m delighted to offer my annual TEAM-CBT intensive training at the South San Francisco Conference Center again this summer, and hope you’ll be able to join us. It’s nearly always my best workshop of the year, and your participation will make it even better!
So what is TEAM-CBT, and how does it differ from classic CBT? TEAM-CBT emerged from process research designed to pinpoint the ingredients of effective psychotherapy, regardless of the school of therapy the clinician is using. TEAM stands for:
T = Testing: You will learn to use brief, accurate assessment scales at the start and end of every session. The information will help you track therapeutic progress as well as the quality of the therapeutic alliance. This information alone, though sometimes shocking, will revolutionize your practice.
E = Empathy: You will learn advanced empathy skills to help you form a warm trusting relationship with even your most difficult and critical clients—and loved ones as well!
A = Paradoxical Agenda Setting: You will learn to bring therapeutic resistance to conscious awareness quickly and rapidly melt it away the resistance with innovative, powerful “resistance busting” techniques such as the Magic Button, Positive Reframing, Acid Test, Magic Dial, and more.
M = Methods: You will learn to use numerous methods drawn from more than a dozen schools of therapy to crush the negative thinking patterns that trigger depression and anxiety, including powerful role-playing techniques such as the Externalization of Voices, Acceptance Paradox, Double Standard, Devil’s Advocate, Interpersonal Downward Arrow, Hidden Emotion, and more.
TEAM-CBT can greatly accelerate recovery and boost your satisfaction in your clinical work. If you have ever dreamed of bringing extremely rapid healing to your patients, this is a workshop you won’t want to miss. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to do your own personal work during the workshop so you can experience greater self-esteem and joy in your professional work and in your personal life as well.
Teaching methods will include lecture, large and small group exercises, dramatic and inspiring video excerpts from actual therapy sessions, and live demonstrations with audience volunteers. You will leave with fresh, new insights and many powerful techniques that will revolutionize your practice.
I’ll do everything I can to make this one of the best learning opportunities of your career, and look forward to meeting you this summer!
