Just about to start the second day of this two day workshop led by Professor Don Baucom on "Couple-Based Interventions for Anxiety Disorders". We're here at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine in London's East End. St Katharine's aims to provide a "sense of an oasis in the city" and I think it succeeds really well. I've been to workshops here before and I would thoroughly recommend it. But how was yesterday's first day of this workshop?

I'm running a one day workshop in Belfast this weekend entitled "Keeping up with research: does it make any difference to our practice?". Here's a downloadable copy of the 50 or so slide initial Powerpoint presentation. I'll also be giving the trainee cognitive therapists a series of exercises to try. Here are a set of these workshop slides. They overlap considerably with the rather iconoclastic first presentation, but also provide a jumping off point for four major areas we focussed on ... 1.) how expertise is developed (Anders Ericsson's work). 2.) the importance of rapid feedback on how well things are going (balancing evidence-based practice with practice-based evidence).
Psychotherapy training workshops improve skills considerably better if they are linked to subsequent ongoing supervision
