Developing cognitive case conceptualizations and challenging core beliefs

Developing cognitive case conceptualizations and challenging core beliefs

Developing a cognitive case conceptualization is one of the fundamental aspects of treating clients using a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) approach. The conceptualization is critical in developing a treatment plan and in understanding the relationships between early childhood events, core and intermediate beliefs, and automatic thoughts.

In this training, we will discuss how to conceptualize client cases using a CBT approach. We will also discuss strategies to identify and modify intermediate and core beliefs.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the relationship between early childhood events, core and intermediate beliefs, and automatic thoughts
  • Develop cognitive conceptualization diagrams
  • Identify intermediate and core beliefs
  • Develop strategies to challenge intermediate and core beliefs
