CBASP is an integrative psychotherapy modality originated by Dr. Jim McCullough and designed specifically for the treatment of chronic depression; it is recognized in Treatment Guidelines and has robust empirical support (N Engl J Med 2000; 342:1462-70)

Learn practical, technical aspects of psychotherapy in an interactive format with standardized patients. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize prominent maladaptive interpersonal behaviours of chronically depressed patients, and appreciate the resulting clinical challenges and potential pitfalls
  • Understand and apply the key principles and techniques of CBASP in order to achieve real change in the lives of chronically depressed patients
  • Formulate and explicitly communicate transference hypotheses, reflecting salient interpersonal themes as they come to life in-sessions
  • Utilize ‘Disciplined Personal Involvement’ to help patients become aware of their interpersonal impact within the here-and-now of the therapeutic alliance
  • Apply techniques to recognize and reduce the risk of therapeutic impasses
