Depression: A Cognitive Therapy Approach - 1 CPD Hour
Cognitive Therapy comes to life in this reenactment of a 20-session course of therapy. Arthur Freeman illustrates the foundations and key techniques of cognitive therapy in a way that’s enriching and easy to follow.
Edward Crane blames his depression on his wife, who he says abandoned him by going back to school. “I shouldn’t feel this way!” he exclaims to Freeman in moments of frustration. Freeman begins by helping Edward focus on short-term, workable goals instead of outward blame. Through the 20-session course of therapy, Edward learns to distinguish between situations, thoughts, and feelings, and to reframe his belief of “I need to be taken care of,” to instead “I get angry when I feel incompetent.” Freeman works with Edward to develop ways to feel independent and self-sufficient so that he can begin to enjoy time by himself and not feel so angry and abandoned when his family is not around.
