SC03 – More Important than Hypnosis: Applying David Burns, MD’s, TEAM-CBT Approach to Children and Adolescents
Do you ever have patients who are resistant in your therapy? Or who are not making the type of progress you’d like and expect? Or who don’t do the homework you assign them? If so, you can learn about an exceptional approach to communicate with them to solve these types of problems.
David Burns, MD, internationally known author of Feeling Good, The New Mood Therapy, is one of the pioneers of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). He has developed TEAM therapy (Testing, Empathy, Agenda Setting, and Methods), using new tools, including new forms of communication skills that can be applied to any type of therapy (CBT, psychodynamic, hypnosis, etc.), enhancing results and speeding up the process.
These tools apply to patients with virtually every type of problem you will encounter, including:
1. Mood disorder
2. Relationship problem
5. Somatic problem
This is the first time the same model that Dr. Burns has been using and teaching for adults will be shown in working with children and adolescents. Although the examples used will be pediatric patients, these same concepts apply to patients of all ages.
Attendees will see a demonstration of Dr. Burns’ “The Magic Dial,” for patients with anxiety.
Unique patient video clips will further enhance the salient points of this workshop.
