Worry and Rumination
Working with Worry and Rumination Training Workshop
Have you ever experienced the problem of working with a “worrier” in therapy on a specific worry, only to find that once it has been resolved a new worry pops up? Worry and rumination (i.e., repetitive negative thinking) are key cognitive processes that maintain many psychiatric conditions. Effective treatments have been developed that follow a ‘meta-cognitive’ approach. That is, tackling the negative and positive beliefs one holds about worry and rumination, rather than getting caught up in challenging each specific worry. This practical 2-day workshop will provide participants with:
- A clear formulation and treatment plan for working with worry and rumination, that can be applied regardless of diagnosis
- An understanding of the distinction between cognition and metacognition, and the central role of metacognition in maintaining worry and rumination
- The opportunity to observe and practice specific strategies to treat the key metacognitive maintaining factors of worry and rumination (i.e., metacognitive challenging, metacognitive behavioural experiments, attention training, etc.)
