GriefWork: Growing from life's inevitable losses (2024.06.05; via Zoom)
05 Jun 2024 • 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.

This workshop is focused on CBT for major depressive disorder. We'll review reasons for optimism; empathy addiction; goalification, scaling, and I/O charts for MDD; behavioral antidepressants; depressogenic belief identification; cognitive illusions; the physics of CBT; therapeutic persuasion; MDD thought records; the CUE question (to harness emotional intelligence); learned helplessness (and its opposite, learned hopefulness); reductionistic stagnation; future-focusing (intertemporal self-state negotiations); and the lay construct of willpower.

Dysthymia: Hope for chronic depression—and suicidality (2024.07.03; via Zoom)
03 Jul 2024 • 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). NOTE: The new DSM-5-TR (released on March 18) refers to dysthymia as persistent depressive disorder. 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. *Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is covered in the "Depression: CBT's pathway out" workshop.

Abstract:
This three-credits-per-hour workshop begins with a one-hour review of the 26 tools of persuasion reviewed in the six hour CBT Tools workshop. Those who have not taken CBT Tools in some time may find there have been some interesting updates. The middle part of the workshop consists of a self-assessment. Participants privately rate their ability to identify tools used in scripted encounters. The final part of the workshop consists of group role plays with over 26 tools of persuasion. One of the cases reviewed is the hot topic of vaccine hesitancy. ***Registrants must have taken CBT Tools within the past ten years.

The SuperDoc Workshop: Leveraging CBT Tools to Maximize Physician Resiliency (2024.09.18; via Zoom)
18 Sep 2024 • 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”.

SpicyPsychUpdate: Jalapeno Collection (09.25.2024; via Zoom)
25 Sep 2024 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
CBT Canada's SpicyPsychUpdates reveal the zestiest bits from the fascinating & ever-evolving fields of psychology & psychiatry. SpicyPsychUpdates are a broader & brisker experience than CBT Canada's core modules, which focus on single topics. Five scoring criteria are used in selecting the 30 scientific papers that form the basis of each SpicyPsychUpdate: 1) recent; 2) high quality; 3) clinically useful; 4) personally useful; and 5) spicy (i.e., interesting). To boost the pep, we cut into a fresh paper about every 5 minutes. We're currently offering 3 entirely unique SpicyPsychUpdates, each covering 30 entirely unique recent papers. Take as many as you'd like from HABANERO (Apr 10), CAYENNE (May 8) JALAPENO (Sep 25) —and in any order you'd like. Highly-practical tips emerge from the literature at a blistering pace. Some of those tips can be life-changing for your patients & colleagues, family & friends—and the ongoing project called "you". Stay current with SpicyPsychUpdates!

Humber@TIFA — Resilience, Mattering & Belonging: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Mental Health & Well Being
27 Sep 2024 - 29 Sep 2024 • Toronto, Canada
Organizer:
Humber Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and the Toronto International Festival of Authors
Abstract:
The forthcoming interdisciplinary academic conference aims to be a groundbreaking convergence of scholars, educators, practitioners, and researchers, all unified in their dedication to advancing the understanding of mental health. The conference seeks to explore how people are coping, recovering but also still struggling following a globally experienced traumatic event. While open for proposals with a focus anywhere along the mental health spectrum, themes of interest are resilience; belonging, intergenerational trauma; addiction and recovery; psychopathology; and mental health in the arts, literature and popular culture. The concept of mattering is also a particular theme of interest, specifically recognizing its pivotal role in shaping the psychological landscapes of post-secondary learners. By bridging the domains of psychology, education, literature, and various related disciplines, this event aspires to forge a path toward understanding modern mental health challenges, while also enabling a more resilient and mentally healthy population.

02 Oct 2024 • 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. Veteran presenter Dr. Greg Dubord and CBT Canada faculty explain the key features of over 26 tools used to change patients' maladaptive beliefs and behaviors. You'll then see step-by-step demonstrations of how to best integrate each tool into ten-minute medical appointments. Participants gain familiarity and comfort with the tools through the coaching received while practicing in dyads. This sleeves-up workshop emphasizes practical assessment tools, homework compliance enhancers, and change-oriented charting. The focus is on the most strategic interventions that can be integrated into routine (e.g., 10 minute) clinical appointments.
