CBT with Depression and Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Thursday July 26, 2018

With Noah Clyman, LCSW, ACT

11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 
Ruth S. Harley University Center

Depression has become one of the most critical medical / psychological problems in the US and around the world. The symptoms can be crippling and their devastation reaches beyond the depressed  individual to families and communities as well. Pharmacological and traditional behavior therapy for Major Depressive Disorder have efficacy rates of approximately 60%. Although these findings are promising, relapse rates are still high across treatments, and risk increases dramatically with each episode. These data highlight the need to improve treatments for depression and reduce the substantial risk of relapse. The focus of the workshop will be practical, with methods you can use right away in your clinical work. Although the focus of the workshop will be on the treatment of depression, you will find that the techniques in this workshop will dramatically improve your effectiveness with all of your clients. Participants will learn powerful techniques to help the client through didactic presentations, large group role-play demonstrations, and small group practice. Those who know Noah also know that the workshop will be lively and interactive, with an opportunity to learn from clinical case examples.
