The case formulation approach to cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) calls for clinicians to develop a cognitive-behavioral formulation of each case they are treating, use the formulation to guide the process of setting treatment goals and intervening to help the client accomplish their goals, and monitor the client’s progress in every session. Dr. Persons will introduce clinicians to some of the basic skills required to implement this approach to CBT and will provide strategies and tools to help clinicians implement it in their clinical practice. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice developing some formulation hypotheses for their clients.
Attendees will be able to:
Develop a comprehensive Problem List for their clients.
Identify at least two psychological factors that maintain symptoms and problems for some of their clients.
Identify and obtain at least two tools to monitor their clients’ progress in treatment.
