Press Release

18 April 2011

Canterbury Christ Church University's Department of Applied Psychology at Salomons is delighted to announce that Dr Christine Padesky, will be coming over from America exclusively to present a Master Clinician Workshop on 20th May 2011.

Dr Christine Padesky, who was named the ‘Most Influential International Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist’ by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), will lead the fifth workshop out of a series of 17 held by the Department.

Entitled ‘Collaborative Case Conceptualization: Incorporate Strengths to Build Resilience’, this multimedia workshop will discuss a recent new approach to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) case conceptualization, offering a step-by-step model to guide therapists’ treatment planning with complex cases, especially when no single treatment model applies. 

Henck van Bilsen, Director of CBT Programmes at the University, said: “We are delighted to have Christine here and for her presentation to be included as part of the training for our Postgraduate CBT students, as well as being available to the public”.

This recent addition to the Master Clinician Workshops in CBT programme sees Salomons further pursuing its status as a Centre for Mental Health Innovations. The Government has recognised the ongoing need for investment into this field and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has just announced that it is to put an extra £400 million provision into mental health in a bid to put it on an equal footing with physical health.
