Evidence Based CBT: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters Professor Tian Oei
Description The fact that CBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy is well known and whole heartedly accepted by researchers, practitioners and regulators. What is seldom discussed and thus less known are the bad and the ugly sides of the evidence-based CBT. This talk will discuss these negative sides of evidence-based CBT. It is hoped that by openly and critically discussing the negative aspects of evidence-based CBT that all of us can be confident regarding the use of evidence-based CBT and can move the field forward. Mindfulness, a third wave of CBT, will be examined also in this talk.
