CBT trouble-shooting skills: Identifying and resolving obstacles when therapy is not on track

Go Back


CBT is effective for the treatment of depression and anxiety problems; however, it is also known that between 30% and 50% of patients do not recover from their symptoms and some deteriorate. Recent studies have demonstrated that it is possible to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of CBT using feedback-informed treatment (Delgadillo et al., 2017, 2018; Janse et al. 2017), which combines routine outcome monitoring with individualized case formulation and trouble-shooting skills. In this way, therapists are able to identify and resolve problems in a timely manner, adjusting protocol-driven treatments when necessary.

This workshop will focus on the integration of routine outcome monitoring, case formulation, and clinical troubleshooting skills in CBT. Participants will learn about the current evidence-base on predictors of treatment outcomes and will also consider practical skills on how to (a) identify, (b) formulate and (c) address obstacles to improvement. The feedback-informed treatment model covered in this workshop has been empirically tested in a large multi-site randomised controlled trial (Delgadillo et al., 2018), with evidence of improved outcomes for patients with depression and anxiety.
