47th CONGRESS OF THE EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR BEHAVIOURAL AND COGNITIVE THERAPIES
13 - 16 SEPTEMBER 2017 / LJUBLJANA - SLOVENIA

Irismas Reis

Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy (TBCT) is a three-level, three-phase, case formulation approach, developed by Professor Irismar Reis de Oliveira at Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. TBCT's foundation is in cognitive therapy (CT); however, it has a unique approach to conceptualization and techniques that make it a distinct intervention in modifying patients' core beliefs, especially those about the self.

Description:
Like cognitive therapy (CT), trial-based cognitive therapy (TBCT) is an active approach to treatment that helps clients to recognize situationally based thoughts and unhelpful beliefs that exacerbate emotional distress. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use the TBCT case conceptualization diagram (CCD) and how to restructure cognitions in the level 1, by means of techniques like the intrapersonal thought record (Intra-TR), the interpersonal thought record (Inter-TR), and the participation grid (PG).
