Process-Based CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been an enormous empirical and practical success over its more than 50+ year history. The situation surrounding evidence-based care has dramatically changed, however, and it is important for CBT to change as well. For decades, evidence-based therapy has been defined in terms of scientifically validated protocols focused on syndromes. That era is now passing away.
This workshop will feature didactic presentations, demonstration of practical strategies and exercises how to utilize the core competencies of CBT in a pragmatic way that honors the behavioral, cognitive, and acceptance and mindfulness wings of the tradition in a new form of process-based CBT. Additional goals include gaining an up-to-date understanding of the transdiagnostic core processes; using a functional diagnostic system that has treatment utility; and establishing more progressive models and theories in clinical practice.
