Half day workshop # 13: Mindfulness-integrated CBT for trauma: Using the mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure task

As mindfulness-based interventions are increasingly used to address a wide range of conditions, clinicians need as much training as possible with complex clients, especially those with a trauma history. The purpose of this specialised workshop is to deepen our understanding of operant conditioning and exposure principles, and learn mindfulness-based exposure methods for clients with trauma symptoms. These will include novel exposure methods to decrease avoidance and reduce the distress caused by panic attacks and traumatic memories. These methods will be demonstrated through role-playing and video demonstrations. The workshop will also teach how to case-conceptualise clients’ avoidance and other aversive reactions to traumatic symptoms, according to the co-emergence model of reinforcement, to increase the accuracy of treatment. Although this workshop is clinically oriented, it will also benefit anyone interested in a new understanding of reinforcement principles.

Learning outcomes:

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Deepen our understanding of operant conditioning based on neurophenomenological evidence
  • Use the co-emergence model of reinforcement to improve case-conceptualisation of trauma clients’ behaviour
  • Understand the nature of mindfulness-based exposure Use the MIET as a distress reduction method
  • Use the mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure task (MIET) to decrease avoidance

 

Workshop content:

  • The neurophenomenology of reinforcement
  • The case conceptualisation of avoidant behaviour based on the co-emergence model of reinforcement
  • The principles of mindfulness-based exposure
  • How the mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure task decreases distress
  • How the mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure task decreases avoidance

Audience:

This workshop is designed to meet the needs of all clinical psychologists, postgraduate students training in clinical psychology, psychiatrists with a good understanding of reinforcement principles, as well as clinical researchers in the field of mental health. In order to maximise the likelihood of achieving training objectives, the participants must have a working knowledge of CBT and some understanding of mindfulness. Having taught and personally practised mindfulness meditation is an advantage, but not a requirement.
