Process-Based Therapy (PBT; Hayes & Hofmann, 2018) is a new way to individually tailor evidence-based psychotherapy. PBT offers a solution to the problems and constraints when applying a traditional medical model (i.e., use X treatment for Y psychiatric disorder) to the process of psychotherapy. In doing so, PBT offers a new and humanizing framework to do what mental health clinicians strive to do best: help people improve life functioning in their context by flexibly using the best possible therapeutic processes and interventions. This workshop will provide an overview of the rationale for PBT, discuss core principles of PBT, identify differences between PBT and existing therapies, list examples of therapeutic procedures used in PBT, and review a case example of PBT. Recent developments and possible future advances in PBT also will be discussed.
This workshop will describe how process-based therapy (PBT) can be used as a new framework to flexibly use evidence-based interventions and tailor them to your clients. Evidence-based interventions discussed within the framework of PBT will include common psychotherapy processes (e.g., validation, therapeutic alliance) and specific interventions shown to help a wide range of people across diagnoses (e.g., mindfulness, cognitive defusion, approach behavior, valued actions, etc.). Participants will explore how to use client values, functional analysis, qualitative data collection, and client empowerment to implement a PBT treatment plan for adults. We will review how conventional therapy approaches differ from PBT in multiple case examples. This will include a detailed review of specific transdiagnostic evidence-based therapeutic procedures that are used in PBT.
