TEAM utilizes self-report scales to quickly and accurately measure a patient’s depression, suicidality, anxiety, and other emotions before and after each session. The therapeutic alliance is also measured at the end of each session via the same brief, self-report scales.
Empathy refers to the therapeutic alliance, an essential component of any therapy. TEAM presents simple, effective ways of creating and maintaining a therapeutic alliance with any patient; even those oftentimes dismissed as “resistant,” “difficult, or “borderline,” etc .
Agenda Setting is the core of the TEAM model. It provides therapists high-speed methods to identify workable therapeutic agendas and navigate resistance to change. At its core, TEAM agenda setting recognizes that any symptom is also a “solution.” Recognizing this dual nature of clinical presentations sets the foundation for meaningful change.
During our four-day training, 50 cutting-edge methods will be presented, and 10 will be presented in detail. Frequent role-plays and opportunities to practice will consolidate attendees’ learning. Dr. Burns urges us to “fail as fast as you can,” thus moving quickly and smoothly to the next method to find that one that will be effective
TEAM CBT is a comprehensive and teachable system that enables therapists to deliver highly effective psychotherapy for any presenting problem. TEAM therapists themselves oftentimes experience profound personal and professional transformation as a result of their work.
