Case Conceptualization: An In-session Collaboration
© Copyright Center for Cognitive Therapy / www.padesky.com
This audio program was edited in 2006 and is consistent with current CBT standards of treatment.
Dr. Padesky defines cognitive case conceptualization and explains why she believes it is most useful when constructed collaboratively in-session with the client. In several role-play case demonstrations, she skillfully guides clients to conceptualize their problems in ways that highlight change possibilities.
Consider how in-session conceptualization increases client self-compassion. Hear clients comment on how participation in case conceptualization actually contributes to therapy motivation.
After this workshop, one of the participants wrote Dr. Padesky to say, I now really grasp the concept and I'm thoroughly enjoying using it with my clients.
Another described the difference this type of case conceptualization made in her work with a client who was stuck: ... the client was so excited, even though some of the revelations were painful for her.
Listen to this workshop and learn how to more thoroughly engage your clients in therapy.
