Couples Assessment and Formulation Skills: Theory to practice
Couples Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CCBT)
Assessment and Formulation Skills: Theory to practice
Approved by BABCP as an accredited CBT training day
Couples Therapy is an exciting and developing area of clinical practice, especially with IAPT incorporating couples work into its skills set and NICE beginning to recommend couples work as an effective intervention. Attendees should have some theoretical experience of CBT and be familiar with the principles and practice of individual cognitive therapy. Some previous training and or clinical experience in providing CCBT would be helpful but not essential.
Aim: The workshop introduces attendees to skills in the assessment and formulation processes of CCBT. We will draw on three models of CCBT developed by Baucom & Epstein, Padesky, and Dattilio.
Participants: The workshop is likely to be helpful for clinicians working in IAPT, NHS adult primary and secondary mental health care teams, CAMS professionals working with parents, Relate therapists or therapist working in private practice who are interested in involving client’s partners in individual therapy cases or developing couples therapy practice. Some knowledge of CCBT and previous training in couples or family therapy desirable but not essential. A basic knowledge of CBT theory and practice would be necessary for participants to get the most from the day.
