Guiding Discovery through Socratic Methods: A brief guide

Webinar 10am-11.30am 3rd November 2021

            This webinar provides practitioners with guidance on getting the most out of Socratic Methods.  The speaker will present the theoretical underpinnings of the Socratic approach before presenting a range of cognitive and behavioural options for the practitioner using Socratic Methods for different purposes. She will explore when it might be advantageous not to use Socratic methods, but instead to use direct and didactic methods. The practitioner’s aim is not to overuse Socratic Methods but to know when and how they are best implemented.

Prof. Anke Ehlers
Cognitive Therapy  for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

download.jpg

This workshop builds on Ehlers and Clark’s (2000) cognitive model of PTSD. This model suggests that people with PTSD perceive a serious current threat that has two sources; excessively negative appraisals (personal meanings) of the trauma and/or its sequelae; characteristics of trauma memories that lead to re-experiencing the symptoms. The problem is maintained by cognitive strategies (such as thought suppression, rumination, safety-seeking behaviours) that are intended to reduce the sense of current threat, but actually maintain the problem by preventing change in the appraisals and trauma memory.  The workshop will describe how to deliver core interventions of CT-PTSD remotely, including updating memories, trigger discrimination and behavioural experiments, and present video illustrations.

Workshop 9.30am-4.30pm 18th November 2021
