Slippage: The Gap Between Perception and Reality
Alice MacKay Room, Vancouver Public Library
Has anyone ever told you that you don’t live in the real world? They were right: you don’t. But neither do they. We instinctively feel that our emotions and actions are based on the events around us, but our reactions are based on what we think is going on, not what is really happening. This talk examines the interface between the real world and our perception of it, pointing out some systematic ways that what we see differs from what is actually out there.
This free talk is part of the PsychologySalon series cosponsored by VPL and Changeways Clinic. The Alice MacKay Room is located beneath the concourse at the Central Branch, 350 West Georgia.
The 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. Arabic, Spanish, French, and Farsi editions are available at no extra charge.
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.
This program is approved for 13 CE credits from the Canadian Psychological Association.
