Cognitive Therapy for PTSD

Ehlers and Clark's (2000) cognitive model of PTSD suggests that people with PTSD perceive a serious current threat which by preventing change in the appraisals and trauma memory can be maintained by cognitive strategies. This workshop, using clinical material and videotapes, will illustrate the different aspects of the model and describe techniques used in the treatment. Participants are encouraged to ask questions about their own cases.

 CBT for Personality Disorder

People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) often have high levels of emotional distress, self-harm behaviours and relationship difficulties. Over the past two decades psychological therapies have been helpful but have differed in intensity, duration and complexity. CBTpd is a brief effective evidence-based therapy for borderline and antisocial personality disorders. Developing a non-judgmental, authentic and warm therapeutic relationship is central to CBTpd, with treatment focusing on emotional and behavioural regulation.

 Self Harm

Over half of suicides have a history of self-harm. Self-harm is common, particularly in young adults, and is distressing for patients and their loved ones. It also places large demands on clinical services so finding effective aftercare for individuals who self-harm is important. CBT is one of the more effective interventions and this workshop is aimed at helping clinicians develop skills to work with individuals who have recently self-harmed and likely to be at risk of suicide.
