Workshop Description (click HERE to see copy of handouts cover)

When clients come to therapy with a single psychological difficulty, there is often a clear-cut, evidence-based treatment approach to follow. But what is a therapist to do when this is not the case? What treatment protocol(s) should be used?

Padesky presents a step-by-step model of collaborative case conceptualization to guide therapists’ treatment planning, derived from her most recent book Collaborative Case Conceptualization (Kuyken, Padesky & Dudley, 2009).

She demonstrates the three guiding principles of this new approach:

  1. Clients can be engaged to collaboratively co-create conceptualization models that explain presenting issues. Padesky explains why it is important for clients to help construct their conceptualizations and shows how this collaborative process resolves common
    treatment challenges.

  2. Conceptualization is not static; instead it evolves over the course of therapy from descriptive to explanatory models. Participants learn simple interview methods that help clients co-develop models to understand presenting issues, their triggers, and what maintains them.

  3. Client strengths can easily be incorporated into conceptualizations. Doing so helps clients build resilience as they resolve their distress.

Aaron T. Beck calls this new approach “a gold standard for how to develop individualized case conceptualizations.”

Very good Resource 02/23/2015
By M B
I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Therapist in the UK, I would class myself as intermediate in terms of experience. I really enjoyed this seminar- I particularly liked the clever adaptation of the ABC framework into an easy-to-use, basic formulation model that can be used to highlight maintenance traps. I am also very fond of strengths-based approaches having been trained in Narrative Therapy, so I very much appreciated Padesky's idea of making 'ability spotting' part of the formulation!

Step-by-step model 10/28/2012
By Anna Wejdemann
Im a trained and specialized psychologist and psychotherapist. I have found the step-by-step model of CCC very useful. It provided me with information about research, at a very useful level. The "presentet problem in a box - arrow in - arrow out" is a vere useful model, which is presented in a way, that makes it immediately understandable. And Im very thrilled about Padeskeys focus on resilience and strenghts in the clients, which is als presented in a very nice way in the program. Anna Wejdemann
