Christine A. Padesky,Ph.D.
|Many therapists familiar with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) still
face difficulties getting depressed clients to participate actively in
treatment, complete homework assignments, and test out strongly held beliefs.
In this workshop, Christine A. Padesky, demonstrates how to individualize
CBT in pace, content and interpersonal style to match client needs and
personality. Discussion with the audience will address these issues in
relation to Japanese culture. To make discussion easier, this workshop
presented in English will be translated on-site into Japanese.
Depression is marked by passivity and hopelessness. Thus, a key theme of
the workshop is how to engage
clients in therapy, especially when clients are pessimistic or hopeless
about the positive value of therapy tasks. Dr. Padesky models language,
attitudes and metaphors that encourage client engagement and engender hope.
In addition to video and live demonstrations of treatment
methods, the workshop includes structured participant exercises and role-plays.
Participants who own the client manual co-authored by Dr. Padesky, Mind Over Mood(Greenberger & Padesky, 1995,)are advised to bring it
to the workshop since several workshop exercises will use worksheets from
this book. Dr.
Padesky will autograph books for workshop attendees.

health problems. Cognitive behavioral therapy is an evidence-based practice
