Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for bipolar disorder
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated and widely utilized problem-oriented psychotherapeutic approach that examines the relationships between thoughts, behaviours, and emotions. Interventions generally target reducing distress through psychoeducation, the modification of cognitions and behavioural experimentation. Over the last twenty years, there have been considerable advances in applying CBT principles to treat bipolar disorder.
In this webinar, participants will focus on a cognitive conceptualization of bipolar disorder. Discuss common misconceptions regarding the suitability of this population for psychotherapy. The facilitator will provide an overview of the treatment rationale and CBT strategies that are most helpful for these clients. Participants will have the opportunity to examine some of the outcome literature highlighting the effectiveness of CBT.
Please note: This webinar is a part of the Certificate in cognitive behaviour therapy: Level 2 program. Participants may register for any of the certificate program’s individual webinars as a stand-alone training.
