Fall 2013: The Professional Training Lineup in Vancouver


Time for an update on the Continuing Education workshops that Changeways Clinic will be offering this fall in Vancouver.

What if you're not located in Vancouver?

Well, come visit us and make some CE a part of the trip. Or check out our workshop guide here and arrange to have a program in your own city or region.

September 11-12

The Changeways Core Program: Evidence-Based Group Treatment for Depression


The Changeways Core Program is the most widely-used group depression treatment protocol in Canada, and has been implemented in Australia, China, the United States, and Great Britain. Chinese, Farsi, Arabic, and Spanish editions are also available.

Designed from a cognitive-behavioural and psychoeducational perspective, this evidence-based program is designed for adults coping with depression or adjusting to difficult life experiences.

The two-day training workshop provides all the materials necessary for professional therapists to offer this program - in a group format, or as an adjunct to individual therapy. The program is approved for 13 CE credits from the Canadian Psychological Association.

Process Made Simpler: A Behavioural Guide to the Therapeutic Alliance


"Be empathetic," they say. "Be warm. Build up an effective working alliance."

But we seldom hear exactly HOW these mysterious tasks are to be accomplished. The so-called non-specific factors in therapy are acknowledged to account for the lion's share of variability in psychotherapy outcome, but they are seldom made explicit.

Whether one adopts a therapy model believed to work entirely through the alliance, or a technique-focussed model such as cognitive behaviour therapy, an effective working relationship between clinician and client is a prerequisite for change. This workshop presents specific, behavioural practices designed to maximize therapeutic progress.  Good for 6.5 CE credits (Changeways Clinic is an accredited CE supplier with the Canadian Psychological Association).

Private Practice Made Simple: Creating and Sustaining a Successful Business


Therapists routinely say it.  “I was never trained how to run a business.”

We were taught assessment strategy, how to conduct therapy, and when to refer - but not how to perform many of the central activities involved in running a private practice.  So we stumble through, gradually picking up ideas and skills as we go along, and about the time we’re planning our retirement we begin to think we understand.

But running a practice doesn’t have to be difficult.  Many of the skills can be communicated and learned relatively easily.  This program covers a wide variety of strategies to make your practice more successful, more effective, and more fun.  Good for 6.5 CE credits (Changeways Clinic is an accredited CE supplier with the Canadian Psychological Association).

That's it? Well no, there are some other programs going on, but others are hosted by particular agencies or organizations for their own staff. These are the ones available for mental health professionals to sign up for.

We hope to see you this fall.
