PIP Workshop: Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Analytic Therapists, National Institute for the Psychotherapies, Monday, 16. December 2019

Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Analytic Therapists
CBT has become the dominant psychotherapeutic model within the U.S. Because it was developed in reaction to psychoanalysis, the two are often placed in stark opposition. In this course we explore how each of these approaches can enhance the other. The course provides a brief overview of core concepts from both traditional and contemporary mindfulness-based CBT approaches. A variety of CBT treatment methods including the classic techniques of cognitive restructuring and exposure, and newer techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) will be taught. Students will learn approaches to working with panic disorder and obsessional/ruminative problems, as well as how the techniques used can be employed to treat a variety of problems. Throughout the course we will think about how CBT approaches both converge with and diverge from psychoanalytic approaches, the rationale for choosing CBT techniques within an analytic treatment, and how to develop a fluid approach to incorporating both modalities in one treatment.
Classes will include didactic presentation of theory and techniques and discussion of case material drawn from the practices of the instructor and students. Active learning will be facilitated by demonstrations of techniques and opportunities for in-class practice. Readings will include texts by leading CBT practitioners, analytic practitioners who integrate CBT, and some psychoanalytic texts that provide a theoretical framework for integrating CBT into psychoanalytic work.
This course can be taken as a stand-alone course, or as a required part of NIP’s Certificate Program in Psychotherapy Integration. The course will be taught at NIP in eight seminar-style classes, each lasting one hour and fifty minutes. Class meetings are held on Mondays, December 16, January 6, 13, 27, February 3, 10, 24, March 2, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:50 pm.
