Worry Management: CBT for GAD (2023.04.19; via Zoom)
19 Apr 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Today’s stressors are objectively significant. Who among us is genuinely immune to the compounding influences of COVID-19, social media, populist politics, the housing crisis, global competition, artificial intelligence, etc.? Another stressor is of course climate change, which has given rise to the new disorder of “eco-anxiety”. According to a recent Yale University study, 69% of us are at least “somewhat worried” (and 29% “very worried”) about climate change.

Relationship Tune-Up: Tools for building stronger bonds (2023.05.17; via Zoom)
17 May 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Major topics include "ten-minute couples counseling"; helping patients (and others) overcome social anxiety; the fascinating issue of adult sibling relations. Special topics include the scientific determinants of friendship; the trap of co-rumination; research on "emotional contagion"; "friendshifts"; the complex (and embarrassing) emotion of hurt; the portfolio analysis tool; relations with individuals with antisocial personality disorder (AsPD); the horror of ostracism; and the compelling research on the timing of residential moves on children. As the Roman philosopher Cicero (106BC–43BC) wrote in his classic treatise Laelius de Amicitia (On Friendship): "Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief."

PTSD: From post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth (2023.06.07; via Zoom)
07 Jun 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
PTSD has a lifetime prevalence rate of nearly 10% in women (5% in men), which rivals that of depression. Fortunately, the DSM-5 "holy book" made it easier to diagnose PTSD, and recent research has provided us with much more effective treatments.

This popular workshop begins with a review of debriefing (i.e., interventions designed to prevent PTSD after a trauma), including insights from the lead presenter’s work with the Canadian government's National Roundtable in Ottawa. We then review a shortcut to the diagnosis of PTSD, proceeding from there to the details of (and controversies pertaining to) the fuller diagnostic criteria. The core of the workshop—training in treatment—emphasizes those tools realistic for use in primary care. As always, the assumption is a ten-minute appointment (with three patients in the waiting room). Special topics include the curious case of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), “emotional baggage” (i.e., old traumata), the eye-opening forgiveness research, so-called "hindsight bias", the Oprah-esque "imaginal rescripting", intergenerational trauma, the Faustian bargain of children who survived ACEs (adverse childhood experiences), complex PTSD (C-PTSD), trauma-informed care, and what data we have on medical marijuana. The workshop ends with a very uplifting topic: the emerging and exceedingly hopeful literature on post-traumatic growth.

Ten Minute CBT: No-BS techniques for real doctors (2023.06.21; via Zoom)
21 Jun 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Medical CBT is specifically designed for the ultra-brief appointments typical of primary care. In this workshop you'll learn the essentials of a skill that may fundamentally change how you cope with the all-important psychological side of medical practice. You'll learn flexible tools to integrate with your existing approaches to major depression, persistent depression (“dysthymia” until DSM-5), chronic worry, chronic pain, panic disorder, non-compliance, substance abuse, illness anxiety, borderline personality disorder, suicidality, and more. Is this workshop right for you? Ten-Minute CBT is an introductory workshop that reviews ten of the 52 tools covered in the original CBT Tools module, along with some highly-practical tips harvested from other three-hour modules. If you'd like a high-impact introduction, or if you'd like a refresher of the material you took before, Ten-Minute CBT is an excellent choice.

Bedside Manners 2.0: 26 tools to boost your "alliance-o-meter" readings... (2023.07.05; via Zoom)
05 Jul 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
There are many tools (besides exhausting empathy injections) you can use to keep the doctor-patient relationship far from the Zone of Peril. In the 3.0 hour, 9.0 Mainpro+ credit Bedside Manners 2.0, we review twenty-six (26) such tools. Topics covered include the art, science and legalities of apologies; collaboration signifiers; emotional investment expressions; existential connectors (e.g., meaning, isolation, death); expectation management; the universal need for "fairness"; fiduciary role reminders; goal (re)negotiations; humour (honk, honk); jolting studies on physician punctuality; Gable's "response style" matrix; "transference 2.0"; validation (as in borderline personality disorder) ... and sixteen additional rapport-building tools. Doctors who keep their "alliance-o-meter" readings high—without reflexly resorting to draining empathy dosing—enjoy better clinical outcomes—and fewer fears of complaints—and better personal (and familial) well-being.

Personality Disorders: Manage them before they manage you (2023.08.02; via Zoom)
02 Aug 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Personality Disorders: Manage Them Before They Manage You begins with a review of the science of personality assessment. We examine the most popular inventories, doing a fair bit of debunking along the way. The core of the workshop is the systematic review of DSM-5’s ten personality disorders: the insensitively-named "MAD" (paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal), "BAD" (antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic), and "SAD" (avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive) "clusters". As we review each of the ten personality disorders, our emphases are on 1) rapid diagnosis (when possible); 2) modular treatments (when desired), and 3) clinician coping (always).

The SuperDoc Workshop: Leveraging CBT Tools to Maximize Physician Resiliency (2023.09.20; via Zoom)
20 Sep 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Today’s cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a treasure-trove of scientifically‐tested tools to help physicians increase their resiliency and reduce their risk of burnout. Physician wellness is important for countless reasons, including that it significantly determines the quality of care delivered (CMPA, 2018). Simply put, the burned-out doctor is probably a crappy doctor. Sadly, the burned-out are also at risk for Premature Clinician Aging Disorder (PCAD). PCAD isn't just the result of a heavy caseload and long hours. PCAD is also predicted by one's psychology. In this three-hour workshop, we'll review techniques for silencing self-criticism, decreasing rumination, letting go of the past, increasing self-compassion, improving decision-making, optimizing time management, boosting mindfulness, and making a marriage spark joy. PCAD is not inevitable: you don’t need to age faster than the required rate (unless you want to). Please join CBT Canada faculty for the fast-paced & practical SuperDoc workshop. You’ll emerge equipped with versatile CBT tools to boost the functioning and improve the mental health of your patients, your family, your friends—and the ongoing project called “you”.

18 Oct 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
This three-credits-per-hour workshop is for clinicians wishing to integrate more of CBT's tested tools into their daily work with general medical patients.

01 Nov 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
The Dysthymia module covers three related topics: brief CBT for dysthymia (assumes ten-minute appointments), victimhood culture (an exacerbant on the rise), and brief CBT for suicidality (focusing on what to say in the moment). Please do join us! After completing the Dysthymia module, many physicians report they wish they’d taken it at the start of their careers, asserting that they could have spared themselves a significant amount of stress & heartache.

GriefWork: Growing from life's inevitable losses (2023.12.06; via Zoom)
06 Dec 2023 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Losses happen. That's always been true, but it's more salient in these dreadful Days of COVID. Historically, it was the wisdom traditions—religion and philosophy—that provided us with comfort. Today psychology helps too: the utterly universal experience of loss has spawned much excellent scientific research. Topics include differentiating between MDD and grief, the CBT model (and techniques), the sunk-cost effect, forgiveness, DSM-5-TR's new Prolonged Grief Disorder, and thanatophobia. The workshop assumes your appointments are brief, averaging only 5–7 minutes. With that in mind, we teach the CBT tools that are highest in impact and practicality. The goal is to efficiently help patients cope—at least a little better—with the pain of some of life’s inevitable losses.
