Changing Addictive Behaviours (Substances, Gambling and Sex) with Daniel Mirea
19th October 2020 @ 10:00 - 17:00 BSTGBP145
CBT for addiction used to rest on the assumption that clients are able to identify ways of thinking that lead them to engage in addictive behaviours. However, research into implicit cognitive processes and self-control suggests that some important determinants of addictive behaviour may not be consciously accessible.
In this workshop, we will learn that some of the automatic cognitive processes implicated in addictive behaviour may not be amenable to conventional CBT techniques. Integrating the latest evidence-based technologies such as ‘cognitive training’, as well as skills from third wave therapies (mindfulness), clinical hypnosis and other behavioural strategies will be the main focus of this training.
