Live Grand Rounds: The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy
Over the past few decades, advances in the neurosciences have led to exciting opportunities to correlate subjective symptom reports with objective measures using imaging and neuroendocrine markers. It is well established that psychotherapy has biological effects on reshaping maladaptive neuronal responses, leading to more flexible activation patterns. This occurs in tandem with clinical response to successful psychological treatments, as patients may soften their rigid cognitions regarding self and others, allowing for more measured approaches to their conflicts. It can be difficult to assimilate the expansive literature on this topic, making it hard to know what information is relevant and useful for practitioners. This presentation will distill how psychotherapy can lead to neurobiological change, linking its effect with the maladaptive activation patterns seen in common psychiatric conditions.

Live Professional Workshop: How Psychotherapy Works... And How to Make it More Effective
The evidence indicates that psychotherapists do not improve their outcomes over the course of their careers. Various methods have been offered for improving outcomes, including delivering evidence based treatments and using routine outcome monitoring (ROM). Neither of these methods has led to therapist development An understanding of what makes psychotherapy work suggests that improved facilitative interpersonal skills (FIS) will lead to improvement of outcomes. Deliberate practice of FIS in challenging interactions will improve outcomes gradually.

Live Professional Workshop: Strategic Psychotherapeutics: Using the Building Blocks of Clinical Science to Guide Treatment
There are over four hundred approaches to psychotherapy, most of which branch from the primary streams of knowledge including clinical experience, empirical evidence, theoretical systems, and evidence from related disciplines. What is missing is an organized framework to guide and optimize treatment. The basic building blocks of psychotherapeutics that are fundamental to most approaches are well-documented. Strategic Psychotherapeutics uses these building blocks to inform evidence-based practices, combining the best empirical evidence and clinical expertise, with patient preferences and values. In this presentation, participants will be introduced to the system, which delineates the domains of knowledge that constitute the basic building blocks of psychotherapy. The therapeutic scope and impact of clinicians are enhanced when psychotherapists are grounded in these fundamental knowledge domains and understand how they can be blended. As clinicians gain an understanding of how these basics relate to approaches and technical interventions, more complex therapeutic activities such as assessment, treatment planning, clinical decision making, and alliance maintenance can be appreciated. In this symposium, participants will learn the 11 basic building blocks of psychotherapeutics that can be used to select the approaches and technical interventions best suited to each patient. The goal of this webinar is to enhance clinical expertise by providing the basic, intermediate, and advanced knowledge domains universal to all psychotherapeutics.
