Behavioural Activation Treatment for Depression
For: Professionals
Provided by: Offered By Unified CBT Academy

Date and Time

Thu Oct 10, 2019 (This event is over)
12:00 - 6:00pm


Event Description

Contrary to popular belief behavioural activation treatment (BAT) is not merely increasing activity levels. BAT is one of the evidence-based treatment for depression. Learn the insides of BAT from a practicing academic clinician and teacher of cognitive behavioural therapy.

The course covers the theory and model for diagnosing and treating depression. Approach BAT through the functional analysis of avoidance and loss of rewards in depression. By understanding the skilled use of the activity diary, you will learn to identify ‘stuck’ points and effective treatment strategies to get clients unstuck.

The nuances of BAT rest in its simplicity and attention to detail. Avoid the common pitfall of techniques which may be incompatible with BAT formulation and approach.

The course will also describe how medication strategies interact with psychological treatments.
