Personality Disorders: Manage them before they manage you (2024.03.06; via Zoom)
06 Mar 2024 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
This practical workshop 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). Personalities and their disorders are by definition enduring and predictable. When you improve your skills in reading others, you give yourself a little "superpower". That superpower will make both your clinical practice and your life in general a fair bit easier.

Relationship Tune-Up: Tools for building stronger bonds (2024.04.03; via Zoom)
03 Apr 2024 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Loneliness is "the new smoking". When chronic, it erodes both emotional and physical health. Our society's loneliness epidemic leads many patients to (mis)use your office as their primary source of social support. Your burden can be very heavy. Today's cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) provides patients with much more than the typical advice of “join a club”. Upon completing the Relationship Tune-Up workshop, you’ll have dozens of practical tools to help you improve their relations with friends, colleagues, and loved ones. Major topics include "ten-minute couples counseling"; helping patients (and others) overcome social anxiety; and 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."

Abstract:
As Aristotle wrote, "Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence."

In this three-hour workshop, we'll review the most significant findings from the field of positive psychology. Special topics include awe, career decisions, experiences, fun, gratitude, humour, mind-expanding drugs, optimism, pets, play, resilience, savouring, self-actualization, and shinrin-yoku. Happiness Science is our most upbeat and broadly-applicable module. Please join us for this extremely positive CME!

Panic & Phobias: Conquering fears with CBT (2024.05.01; via Zoom)
01 May 2024 • virtual (via Zoom), Canada
Organizer:
CBT Canada
Abstract:
Physicians trained in CBT derive significant professional satisfaction from treating panic disorder and the phobias. Most patients respond relatively quickly, and relapse rates are reassuringly low. We'll review CBT for panic, and explore how the cognitive model can be applied to such things as cognitive decline-related anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, perimenopausal symptoms, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. In our review of phobias, we'll examine the subtleties of systematic desensitization, OCD-related avoidance, PTSD-related avoidance, public speaking anxiety, selective mutism, separation anxiety, and social anxiety. Most phobias are very treatable. Overcome your workshop-o-phobia and register today!

PTSD: From post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth (2024.05.15; via Zoom)
15 May 2024 • 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. We'll begin with a review of debriefing (i.e., interventions designed to prevent PTSD after a trauma), including insights from head instructor, Greg Dubord, MD, and his work with the Canadian government's National Roundtable in Ottawa. We'll 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 is treatment interventions for the four major criteria. Special topics include the curious case of EMDR, “emotional baggage” (i.e., old traumata), the eye-opening forgiveness research, so-called "hindsight bias", the Oprah-esque "imaginal rescripting", the Faustian bargain of children who survived ACEs (adverse childhood experiences), and what data we have on medical marijuana. We end with the uplifting literature on post-traumatic growth. As always, the assumption is a ten-minute appointment (with three patients in the waiting room).

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.

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.

Dagstuhl-Seminar — Improving Trust between Humans and Software Robots in Robotic Process Automation
14 Jul 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany
Organizer:
Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik
Abstract:
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an emerging technology that sits between the fields of Business Process Management (BPM) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). RPA allows organizations to automate high-volume and repetitive tasks – also referred to as routines – performed by human users. The enactment of these routines is emulated by means of a software (SW) robot that works on the applications' user interfaces (UIs) in the same way as the original human operators did. The overall goal is to explore the scientific and technological foundations to pioneer new trust-aware RPA solutions that work in partnership with the human workforce, to enhance human capabilities rather than replace human intelligence and break through the barriers to human trust using RPA.

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”.

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.
