Recent decades have witnessed a surge in the development of competency-based, collaborative approaches to working with clients. Practicing positive CBT reveals how traditional CBT can become positive CBT by shifting the focus of therapy from what is wrong with clients to what is right with them, and from what is not working to what is, thus creating a more optimistic process that empowers clients and therapists to flourish. Drawing on insights and techniques from positive psychology and solution-focused brief therapy, Fredrike Bannink reveals how positive CBT combines the best elements of change-based and meaning-based psychotherapeutic approaches to offer a new perspective on traditional CBT. This transition represents an important shift from problem analysis to goal analysis, from a focus on deficits and the learning of new behaviours to one that builds on resources and competences clients already possess and from reducing distress to building success. After the workshop the attendants will have: 1. Knowledge of Positive CBT and how it is different from traditional CBT, 2. Skills to enhance positive emotions and hopeful and optimistic conversations, 3. Practical Positive CBT tools (e.g. positive FBA). The author also discusses the following points: 1. What is Positive CBT? 2. How is Positive CBT different from traditional CBT and how can it be combined? 3. What is the role of the Positive CBT therapist? 4. How to find competences, resources and what works to build successes within a CBT framework.
