This workshop, taught by Allen Miller, PhD, offers practical tools useful for planning and implementing treatment for patients with a variety of chronic medical conditions. Participants will learn to conceptualize clients according to the cognitive model, use motivational techniques, develop treatment and action plans, integrate relaxation and mindfulness techniques, and encourage clients to make healthy lifestyle choices. Techniques will be presented to help patients respond to dysfunctional beliefs related to hopelessness, discouragement and unfairness—and other cognitions that undermine their motivation and sense of self-efficacy. This interactive workshop includes case discussions and experiential exercises. This workshop is designed for mental health and allied health practitioners, including physicians, nurses, and psychiatrists who treat patients in a medical setting.
