Constructing NEW Underlying Assumptions & Behavioral Experiments

© Copyright 2004 Christine A. Padesky, PhD / www.padesky.com

Dr. Padesky begins with a brief description of automatic thoughts, underlying assumptions, and core beliefs. She explains why recurrent problems are often best solved at the underlying assumption level.

Bob is a therapist struggling with ongoing procrastination regarding completion of case formulations at his clinic.

  • The session begins with a review of the underlying assumptions, identified prior to this interview, that maintain Bob's procrastination

  • Together, she and Bob specify his goals for change and identify NEW underlying assumptions that would support these changes

  • Next, in collaboration with the therapist, Bob devises behavioral experiments to evaluate the utility of these NEW underlying assumptions

  • He makes specific predictions and identifies potential problems that need to be managed during his experiments

  • Dr. Padesky and Bob dialogue about the relative benefits of testing OLD and/or NEW beliefs.

This video illustrates how to identify NEW underlying assumptions and set up behavioral experiments based on the NEW assumptions.

As in her other DVDs, Dr. Padesky models a collaborative approach that promotes client curiosity, activity, and creativity.
