About this workshop:

Dr. Burns has created a new framework for conducting psychotherapy that incorporates several different elements that are known to positively influence treatment outcome. This new framework, called TEAM-CBT, is an evidence-informed, transdiagnostic treatment that includes routine outcome monitoring, an emphasis on the therapeutic alliance, techniques that target and reduce both outcome and process resistance, as well as multiple CBT methods. The components of TEAM-CBT include:

·      T = Testing. Measurement of symptoms as well as the therapeutic alliance at the start and end of every session.

·      E = Empathy. A set of skills to help therapists connect with challenging patients and repair alliance ruptures.

·      A = (Paradoxical) Agenda Setting. 15+ innovative techniques to identify and reduce outcome and process resistance.

·      M = Methods. 50+ cognitive, behavioral and interpersonal techniques.

During this workshop, participants will learn about each of the aspects of the TEAM-CBT model through didactic presentations, patient vignettes, large group role-play demonstrations, and small group practice.  Those who know Dr. Burns also know that the workshop will be lively and interactive, with an opportunity to learn from clinical case examples.
