Have you ever been to an inspiring training workshop but struggled to regain that inspiration once you were back in your usual work place? Or found your regular supervisor is not familiar with the new approach from the workshop?
If so, welcome to “Traipervision”, a new format of CPD which aims to bridge the gap between training and supervision.
We are offering two, two hour sessions which will be split between workshop style teaching and peer supervision. They will be led by Richard Moore, Clinical Psychologist, and will focus on issues involved in adapting Cognitive Therapy to address persistence in depression. Each session will focus on an issue that is more specific than the usual day workshop, with the aim of developing and practicing relevant skills right in the session.
Session 1: 9th November 2.30 – 4.30
Formulation in persistent depression
This session will focus on formulating areas of difficulty in applying standard cognitive therapy in recurrent and chronic depression. The workshop element will describe some of the factors contributing to persistence and how they might thwart therapy. The peer supervision element will provide time to practice a) identifying these factors in your own patients, and b) developing strategies to address them.
Session 2: 23rd November 2.30 – 4.30
Regulating emotion in therapy with people with persistent depression
This session will focus on difficulties in regulating emotion in sessions with people with chronic depression. The workshop element will illustrate how some patients exhibit very little emotion while others experience extreme levels of emotion. Ways of adapting the style of therapy will be discussed and the peer supervision element will then give a chance to practice how you might adapt your therapy with patients you are struggling with.
This workshop is aimed at clinicians who have experience in delivering Cognitive Therapy and should have active cases that they can use in this interactive workshop. The sessions are particularly suited to Clinicians working with Chronic depression and complex cases.
To enhance the peer supervision element of the session, we advise that if possible you apply to attend with a colleague who is familiar with the kind of patients you see.
We suggest attending both sessions as the issues that will be addressed do relate to each other and can be addressed synergistically.
The workshops will take place at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (MRC CBU) in Cambridge, UK.
