In March 2016, The King Fund published ‘bringing together physical and mental health-a new frontier for integrated care, highlighting the need to use an integrated model of care using a more ‘whole person’ perspective. This training looks at supporting psychological therapists to develop the necessary skills to do so for clients who experience various long term conditions. This training is very practical using case studies and practising this approach in groups.

What the workshop covers? Is stress psychological or physical? The role of cortisol. Why use an integrated approach? Using an integrated approach with: Diabetes;  COPD/Cardiovascular problems; pain disorders (such as fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome); and with Cancer care.

What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range of topics from introductory through to advance. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role plays significantly develops skills and knowledge  and  techniques and provides an effective and cost efficient investment in your professional development.

The Workshop

Those of us who have read resources  such as ‘Mental Health, Race and Culture by Professor Suman Fernando (2010), would agree that a good understanding of  a patient’s cultural background and active beliefs linked to their health condition could enhance a better treatment outcomes.

The term ‘race’ since WW2 and the UNESCO (1950) declaration is now a social concept and not a biological one (Omi and Winant, 1994) that refers to ‘a group of people who share similar and distinct physical characteristics’ (Wikipedia, 2016). Culture used to be seen as ‘shared patterns of belief, feeling and adaptation which people carry in their minds’ (Leighton and Hughes, 1961: 447)’. It used to be thought that culture was only ‘passed on through families and personal interactions’. But we know now that when ‘a group of people’  connect ‘together in a working environment or family or community’, a new ‘culture’ of that group is born along food, music, ethnic, religious, linguistic, political, professional or trade communities. Therefore,  ‘migration, ease of communication, and travel’ is creating fluid, integrating and disappearing ‘boundaries between cultural groups’ and also creating hybrid (mixed) culture of individuals. Example, of the plus ‘one million’ out of the 9.1 million people who identify as ‘minority ethnic’ in England and Wales, consider themselves as ‘mixed ethnicity’ (Economist, 2014; Rogers, 2011), with hybrid cultures’.

The term ‘ethnicity’ builds on ideas within both ‘race’ and culture, but with a personal dimension indicating a sense of belonging to a group real or (more often) imagined (Anderson, 1991).

‘Culturalism’ similar to racism’ (Bauman, 2011) may develop, where patients who identified themselves or are identified by other people as ‘different’ may be treated by other people or perceive themselves (develop cognitive beliefs) as if they are actually different (likely inferior) ‘races’. ‘This racialisation’  ‘applies to asylum seekers, refugees, poor people’, Muslims and patients from areas of low socio-economic mobility of even wealthy cities’. Racialisation in talking therapies (CBT inclusive) and mental health  context may increase our awareness of how negative beliefs linked to real or imaged ‘discrimination and oppression’ may be perpetuated ‘in various settings and guises as continuity from the past of racism (or casteism)’ that transforms itself to suit ‘circumstances, economic advantage and personal inclinations’.

This training looks at how practitioners of psychological  therapies and psychosocial care may develop the skills to understand, formulate and treat some culture-bound  psychological disorders for the benefits of patients. This training is very practical using case studies and practising this approach in groups.

What the workshop covers? Revisiting the understanding of culture, ethnicity, and race as they relate to the neurobiology of the human brain, cognitions, emotions, behaviours, mental health and talking therapies (CBT inclusive).  Cultural competencies and culture bound syndromes/disorders. Applications to talking therapies (CBT inclusive)-cultural approaches to formulating and treating  physical pain, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, anxiety disorders, etc.

What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range of neuropsychological therapy (inclusive of CBT) of culture bound anxiety and some other psychological disorders. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role plays significantly help to develop attendees’ skills and knowledge and provide an effective and cost efficient investment in your professional development.

This training will provide a CPD Certificate (6.5 hours) signed by the course trainer and Health City.

The Workshop

Low mood and low self-esteem can in fact be part of our normal development, however, when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our lives. It can lead to problems such as deeper states of depression and other anxiety disorders (such as eating disorders). You may also develop unhelpful habits, such as over-eating, smoking, or drinking too much, as a way of coping. According to the Mental Health Foundation 1 in 4 individuals will experience some kind of mental health problem over the course of 12 months with mixed anxiety and depression being the most common disorders in UK.

Low self-esteem is a unique condition characterized by symptoms from both the depressive and the anxiety spectrum therefore, it requires a creative and comprehensive approach that undermines all these varied symptoms. CBT treatment protocols distinguish between depression from low self-esteem. Recent neuro-affective research has influenced the CBT treatment of low self-esteem and is constantly shaping therapists’ understanding of core emotions such shame and guilt and their role in the development and maintenance of characteorological problems and depressed mood. The CBT treatment protocol taught on this course brings together all recent research and proposes a transdiagnostic evidence-based modular approach that Daniel Mirea calls an Emotion-Driven Behavioural Therapy (EDBT).

What the workshop covers? A deeper understanding of core emotions such as shame or sadness and their contribution to the complex pathology of low self-esteem (LSE) – what are  different from clinical or severe depression. An overview of transdiagnostic approaches with a focus on EDBT of Shame and Low Self-Esteem. What are Emotion-Driven Behaviours? How low moods and low self-esteem associate with other disorders such as depression, social phobia or personality problems. Assessment and conceptualisation: the working model of low self-esteem highlighting factors that maintain this condition, such as social withdrawal, low mood, feelings of shame, common misinterpretations of social interactions and self-critical thinking. The modular EDBT treatment of low self-esteem: socialising people to the CBT model, psychological education, modifying and challenging dysfunctional assumptions and self-critical thinking. The creative use of behavioural and social experiments as well as imagery work or clinical hypnosis. Integrating different skills used in the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders. The use of other more recent CBT approaches also known as third wave therapies such as mindfulness and acceptance, imagery, and relaxation.

What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range of  topics from introductory through to advance. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role plays significantly develops skills and knowledge  and techniques and provides an effective and cost efficient investment in your professional development.

This training will provide a CPD Certificate (6.5 hours) signed by the course trainer and Health City.

This training may also be used for personal development and growth.

The Relationship Between the Assessment Process and Case Formulations in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies by Daniel Mirea, Consultant CBT Therapist

The Relationship Between the Assessment Process and Case Formulations in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies by Daniel Mirea, Consultant CBT Therapist

Abstract

This paper takes an in depth look at the relationship between the assessment process and case formulation in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) but not without explaining the context of CBT in the current psychotherapeutic environment. The principle aims of the assessment process is to agree with the client on a list of problems, to further agree on a formulation of these target problems and to have developed sufficiently detailed information about the contributing factors in maintaining these presenting problems (Persons, 1989). The case example used in the paper is not imagined or borrowed from other academic papers. A good diagram-illustration (Figure 1) is given on Cognitive Formulation for Depression and Perfectionism.

The paper also describes different interventions for a successful assessment and case formulation process, reviewing the relevant literature. The implications of the assessment and formulation for the therapeutic process are discussed.
