Introduction to Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT)

Monday, November 12, 2018
About the 2018 seminars: The Anxiety Practitioners Network is pleased to bring you the 2018 series of Clinical Focus Seminars aimed at providing clinicians and clinical students with up to date information relating to different fields of anxiety treatment. These seminars will be run by clinicians and clinical researchers who are experts in their respective fields. All presenters will include an overview of their area, issues in assessment and measurement, current approaches to treatment, future directions in research and treatment, and some illustrative case studies.

About this seminar: Evidence suggests that mindfulness meditation is beneficial in reducing the severity of a range of psychopathologies. The benefits have been mostly attributed to improved attention and emotion regulation. However, recent studies suggest that the active mechanisms underlying mindfulness remain unclear, despite a number of useful accounts. MiCBT is based on a clear and comprehensive model that has strong explanatory power. The co-emergence model of reinforcement (CMR) central to MiCBT has been proposed to explain the mechanisms of change observed in Mindfulness based interventions

About the presenter: 

Alice Shires is a clinical and research psychologist, Director of the UTS Psychology Clinic, and Senior Lecturer at the Graduate School of Health, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). She is Chair of the Australian Clinic Directors association (AAPTC) and is involved in research and development of teaching and training in clinical psychology. She has established the Mindfulness-integrated research clinic at UTS and research includes the efficacy of MiCBT in chronic pain, the process of supervision and assessment of competencies in clinical psychology, and the inclusion of mindfulness training in the clinical psychology training process. Alice is a senior trainer of MiCBT, implements MiCBT with clients, teaches MiCBT to mental health professionals and supervises clinicians during the course of their MiCBT training. She has recently co-authored The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulnessintegrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Wiley, 2018)

Mindfulness and Dreams with Dr Cayoun Sunday 7th October, 3-4pm

Monday, October 01, 2018
Mindfulness and Dreams: A New Approach and Interpretational Benefits

Dreams are integral parts of daily life that have long fascinated humanity, but they can also be a source of great suffering when associated with emotional disorders. Despite existing theories of dreams, therapists who attempt to offer interpretations tend to over-rely on theoretical assumptions, which seldom translate into tangible benefits during clinical interventions. Based on observations made during mindfulness practice and the co-emergence model of reinforcement, Dr Bruno Cayoun will discuss the advantages of adopting a new way of conceptualising, understanding and interpreting common dreams during clinical practice.

Participants will learn about:

  • Current dream theories
  • The co-emergence model of reinforcement and its relevance to dream experiences
  • Co-emergence interpretation of dreams in clinical practice
  • Information on the opportunities for training

Session time: 3pm – 4pm (AEDT)
Session date: Sunday 7th October 2018

Part of the Mental Health Super Summit: 5-21 October
