Course Description

Rumination is a common phenomenon across a range of conditions like posttraumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder. It can be a challenge for therapists as it is associated with poor clinical outcomes. Rumination may go undetected and derail therapy.

Several interventions have been tried for rumination including cognitive behavioural, mindfulness and meta-cognitive approaches. The workshop will review the applied research on rumination. It will focus on developing skills to recognise this commonly occurring phenomena and learn interventions using a structured approach. The interventions involve understanding the adaptive and maladaptive role of rumination, analysing the process, emotions and content of rumination, tracking rumination and applying a stepped approach to intervention for rumination.

Participants will be able to practice a template for intervention using exercises, role plays and discussions. They will also receive practical tips on how to prevent rumination from hijacking the therapeutic alliance. Techniques will be derived from a range of cognitive behavioural schools (behavioural, cognitive, mindfulness and metacognitive awareness approaches).

The workshop will use experiential exercises, demonstrations, role plays and continual feedback for skills development.
