Cognitive Behavioural Chairwork: Advanced Skills and Applications

Go Back

 



Workshop One - Cognitive behavioural chairwork in action: An introductory workshop Chairwork represents a collection of powerful experiential interventions which utilise chairs and their relative positions for therapeutic purposes. Chairwork has a rich history of applications in CBT and appears to be an effective method for treating a range of emotional and psychological difficulties.

This experiential and practice-focused workshop will introduce therapists to basic chairwork techniques and explore how these interventions can be used to enhance their clinical practice. Core chairwork interventions for working with negative automatic thoughts, distressing emotions, core beliefs, and metacognitive processes such as self-criticism will be outlined through didactic teaching, video presentations, live demonstrations, and practice-role plays. Delegates will also learn how process-based skills can be used to maximise the effectiveness of chairwork.

Workshop Two - Cognitive behavioural chairwork: Advanced skills and applications Chairwork represents a collection of powerful experiential interventions which utilise chairs and their relative positions for therapeutic purposes. 2 This unique experiential workshop will introduce delegates to advanced applications of chairwork in CBT, including compassion-focused, schema-focused, and emotion-focused chair-based techniques. Time will be spent both exploring how complex forms of chairwork can be used to tackle challenges and obstacles in CBT including emotional blocks, shame and self-criticism, attachment-related difficulties, and distressing childhood memories.

Teaching will be provided using a mixture of didactic presentations, group discussions, video presentations, live demonstrations, and practice role-plays.
