SCPA Workshop on April 7, 2017- Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP)

This presentation is designed to introduce participants to the theoretical, empirical, and clinical implementation aspects of the Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy.
This presentation is designed to introduce participants to the theoretical, empirical, and clinical implementation aspects of the Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy, a treatment model that is based on contemporary learning theories. CBASP is the only model of psychotherapy that is distinctly designed to address the cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal problems associated with Persistent Depressive Disorder (Chronic Depression). The workshop will touch upon the three main clinical strategies used in CBASP, namely, the "Situational Analysis," an interpersonal problem-solving technique designed to teach patients how to attain self-efficacy in their interactions with others; the "Disciplined Interpersonal Involvement," a process-related intervention designed to maximize the positive interpersonal impact of the therapist on the patient; and "Skills Training," a component of the treatment designed to teach patients how to communicate in assertive and efficacious ways with others in their lives.
