    DESCRIPTION

    Across disorders, disgust and shame play unique roles in behavioral avoidance. The purpose of this presentation is to provide audience members with a deepened understanding of the emotions themselves, their functional contributions to avoidance, and the behavioral "antidotes" that counter these emotions' influence on suffering, isolation, and behavioral restriction. There will be time allotted for questions and answers. Attendees are encouraged to apply content from this presentation to case material of their own, and to raise de-identified, case-specific queries if they wish.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    1. Attendees will be able to conceptualize disgust and shame by their physiological, attributional, and behavioral correlates.

    2. Attendees will be able to delineate the main patterns of behavioral avoidance that frequently accompany disgust and shame.

    3. Attendees will be able to develop transdiagnostic functional analyses of disgust- and shame-driven behaviors.

    4. Attendees will be able to design client-specific, behavioral approach tasks to target disgust- and shame-driven avoidance.

    Dr. Clark will present the Clark and Well’s cognitive model of social anxiety disorder and teach this distinctive form of cognitive therapy they developed targeting mechanisms of persistent social anxiety. Excitingly, comparisons with other active treatments have established that their treatment is superior to many other treatments including traditional CBT.

    The workshop will introduce several treatment components including a self-focused attention and safety behaviours experiential exercise, video-feedback, externally-focused attention training, behavioural experiments, and procedures (discrimination training and memory re-scripting) for addressing early traumatic experiences that influence patients’ current behaviour in social situations. All the treatment procedures will be vividly illustrated with case material and video clips. Dr. Clark will guide the audience on how to best select treatment components and monitor progress of patients.

    Finally, the workshop addresses why other components of CBT are not used in their model based on their conceptualization of social anxiety and the mechanisms driving it.
