Understanding case formulation and downward arrow
Understanding the predisposing, precipitating and perpetuating factors related to a client's presenting issues is crucial for a therapist of any modality. Helping the client gain insight into what these are can be enormously powerful and can bring about change on a profound level. Without this understanding, one might argue that the client will not experience enduring change.
This workshop will provide participants with the framework, questions, awareness of inter-connectivity of levels of cognition's necessary to facilitate the greatest gifts a person might give themselves; awareness (the waiting room for change).
- To explore models and methodologies related to case formulation
- To facilitate seamless movement between thoughts, conditional beliefs and schemas
- To share knowledge on existing formulaic methods
- To discuss what types of formulation are relevant and when in relation to a client's presenting issues.
