Behavioural Activation

Behavioural Activation (BA) is an approach that has been efficacious in the treatment of depression. It has been empirically shown that clinically relevant human behaviour is a function of reinforcement and when positive reinforcement is reduced or erratic, people’s sense of meaning, purpose and connectedness are impacted. This can lead to declines in mood and motivation, which causes a vicious cycle of depression. 

Workshop Aims:

This focus of this workshop is to gain an understanding of the compelling reasons why BA should be considered as a distinct form of cognitive behaviour therapy for clients with depression, practice utilising skills, techniques and tools distinct to BA, learn how to conduct a behavioural assessment with clients and construct a collaborative BA intervention with clients.
