Dr Andrew Christensen, Ph.D., psychologist

Le Dr Andrew Christensen, Ph. D., est psychologue clinicien et professeur au Département de psychologie de l’Université de Californie, à Los Angeles. Il est connu mondialement pour avoir publié, à ce jour, près de 150 articles scientifiques sur la thérapie et les conflits de couple. De plus, avec son collègue Neil. S. Jacobson, il est l’auteur du livre Acceptance and Change in Couple Therapy: A therapist’s Guide to Transforming Relationships et de l’ouvrage grand public Couples en difficultés : accepter ses différences. Grâce à une subvention importante du National Institute of Mental Health, les Drs Christensen et Jacobson ont pu mener l’un des plus importants essais cliniques jamais entrepris visant à évaluer l’efficacité de la thérapie de couple, dont faisait partie la thérapie de couple comportementale intégrative (TCCI). Depuis 2010, la TCCI a été adoptée par d’importantes institutions, dont le Département américain des anciens combattants. Les travaux de recherche du Dr Christensen sont cités régulièrement dans les grands médias, tels Le Washington Post, Le New York Times, Newsweek et USA Today. Le Dr Christensen, un formateur particulièrement apprécié, a présenté la TCCI un peu partout dans le monde (Canada, France, Allemagne, Suède, Royaume-Uni, Chine, Brésil, entre autres pays).

Objectives

  1. Describe the theoretical and empirical basis for Integrative behavioral couple therapy (IBCT)
  2. Differentiate IBCT from both traditional and cognitive behavioral couple therapy
  3. Conduct a clinical formulation in IBCT through a DEEP analysis
  4. Describe and practice the assessment methods, clinical formulation and treatment strategies in IBCT

Description

In an effort to improve the outcome of couples therapy, Andrew Christensen of UCLA and the late Neil Jacobson of the University of Washington developed Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy (IBCT), which integrates strategies for promoting acceptance in couples with the traditional behavioral strategies for promoting change in couples. "Acceptance work" focuses on turning problems into vehicles for promoting intimacy and increasing couples' tolerance for what they see as each other's negative behavior. As couples let go of the struggle to change one another, change often occurs in response to natural contingencies. Several clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy of IBCT. IBCT has also been adapted into an online program, www.OurRelationship.com ; a recent clinical trial showed the effectiveness of that program.

In this two-day workshop, the trainer will provide the theoretical background, the assessment strategies, the treatment strategies, and the empirical support for Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT). The workshop will illustrate assessment and treatment techniques through videotaped examples from couples in treatment and provide role-play experiences in implementing these techniques.
