Further to this, CBASP is the only treatment specifically tailored for early-onset chronic depression. Within the CBASP model, chronic depression is thought to develop due to maltreatment at an early age, leading to an arrested cognitive and emotional development. These early experiences mean that the young person remains stuck at a preoperational (childlike) level of social/interpersonal development. CBASP specifically addresses this arrested development, asking the client to consider their impact upon their environments (stimulus value) and to be receptive to the information that the world offers (feedback loop).The active treatment techniques include ‘Situational Analysis’ (SA) wherein the patient is required to objectively analyse recent interpersonal moments with the intention of gaining an understanding into how their actions contribute to desired outcomes. Additionally the relationship between therapist and patient provides an invaluable opportunity for the therapist to perform ‘Disciplined Personal Involvement’ (DPI) strategies. These strategies help the patients to develop further insight into their potential impact upon others and also aid social problem solving to discriminate between current healthy relationships and harmful historical relationships.CBASP is currently included in the draft NICE guidelines for treatment of depression, specifically recommended in the treatment of persistent depression.The workshop will be delivered in an interactive way incorporating group exercises and making use of DVD session footage to enhance learning outcomes.The workshop is suitable for CBT practitioners who have found themselves challenged by, and are looking for solutions to the conundrum of patients with persistent or chronic depression. This workshop is designed as an introduction or primer, and people interested in the approach are encouraged to attend further training and supervision.Learning outcomes and objectives
To provide insights into the main features of CBASP and show how these may be carried out when treating people presenting with persistent depression
