Intolerance of uncertainty (IU) has been identified as both disorder specific and transdiagnostic in the context of anxiety disorders. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatment targeting IU (Making Friends with Uncertainty) has been developed for individual and group interventions. A more recent development of this work is the application of uncertainty interventions for people living with real life uncertainty (for example, a pandemic); the Uncertainty Distress Model and associated interventions for people living with real and actual uncertainty is presented here. This expands and builds on earlier versions of clinical work focussing on Intolerance of Uncertainty and can supplement threat based CBT formulation and interventions.
The workshop offers a way to learn the model from the inside out, and upskill in a range of interventions that can target uncertainty distress in a targeted and specific way. It will consider how uncertainty manifests in therapists and uses live and experiential exercises to exemplify the model.
This workshop could impact therapist awareness of how they experience uncertainty and how they could reflect and sit with it rather than reacting. Awareness of the transdiagnostic process of IU will be increased, as well as skills for working with people facing real life actual uncertainties such as COVID-19, the impact of climate change, and physical ill health. Learning about uncertainty in this way can enhance formulation and understanding of distress associated with real life events and uncertainties.Learning Outcomes
• To build confidence in working clinically with Uncertainty • To gain an overview of a transdiagnostic model of Uncertainty Distress and IU • To develop understanding of interventions for building tolerance to uncertainty and sitting with Uncertainty Distress • To consider the ways in which the practitioners own relationship with uncertainty might be relevant in using these approaches
