Integrating CBT and Third Wave Therapies – Two Day workshop

Go Back


This workshop comes from a practical concern to deliver the best available practice to clients. Many of us receive training in different approaches but lack the time or space to reflect on how we incorporate this into our practice.

The self-help book “Get Your Life Back. The Most Effective Therapies for A Better You” takes clients (and therapists) through CBT+. This approach integrates cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and compassion focused therapy. The workshop uses the acronym NAVIGATES as a memory aid to the steps taken as we progress through the therapy. The workshop also provides an opportunity for reflection on the core processes of change in therapy and how we all bring them into our work.

There will be lots of time for discussion and sharing of expertise from the audience as well as exercises, mindfulness practices, video material and downloadable handouts and worksheets for clients.

This course begins with a look at the four therapies being integrated, CBT, DBT, ACT and CFT, and the pros and cons of integration. It then focuses on the core processes of change which we need to facilitate for our clients. The remainder of the course concerns the course of integrated therapy using the acronym NAVIGATES to guide the therapist through the different techniques and strategies for problem identification, formulation, functional analysis and change.
