Masterclass 1: Adapting the MiCBT Model to Improve Outcomes

Although the four-stage model of MiCBT is backed by a strong rationale and neuroscientific research tends to support its structure, some situations require a degree of adaptation to either engage clients in the treatment or improve its outcome. However, one of the traps of over-adapting the model is the loss of efficacy and long-term ...

Masterclass 2: Skillful Use of Socratic Dialogue in MiCBT

One of the core skills of CBT is the ability to use what is known as the Socratic dialogue, which is a way of communicating that increases the probability of cognitive reappraisal in the client. Although Aaron T. Beck used the term “Socratic questioning” in his Cognitive Therapy approach, this communication style is also known to have been used by the Buddha 25 centuries ago ...

Masterclass 4: Adaptation of MiCBT for Children

Although MiCBT provides the strong advantage of being a transdiagnostic intervention, age-related adaptations are important to consider, given the significant differences in brain volume and functionality across the lifespan. These differences result in dissimilarities in the capacity for attention, memory, self-awareness and self-regulation, ...

Grief is a legitimate, non-pathological, emotional expression of loss in humans, but many clients come to therapy for bereavement issues. Others are referred for Adjustment Disorder, where various forms of bereavement are often part of the presentation. Besides the wide variety of grief presentations, causes and comorbidity issues, therapists can find ...

Masterclass 9: Case Conceptualisation with MiCBT

Psychological conditions can be understood from different theoretical perspectives, psychodynamic, behavioural, narrative, etc., each of which operates through their respective skill sets.

Masterclass 11: Dream Interpretation in MiCBT

Dreams are integral parts of daily life that have long fascinated humanity, but they can also be sources of great suffering when associated with emotional disorders.

Masterclass 13: Addressing Distressing Thoughts with MiCBT

As a universal condition of human life, distressing thoughts have been the subject of philosophies and ancient teachings of wisdom across cultures for thousands of years, and later the target of most therapy approaches.

Masterclass 14: The Role and Use of Psychodynamics in MiCBT

Psychodynamic (or psychoanalytic) theory proposes that events in childhood have a great influence on adult lives. Events that occur in childhood experiences shape adult personality and can remain subconscious while causing distress and maladaptive behaviour in adulthood until they are resolved. Schema therapy is also based on the view that ...

Masterclass 15: Right Effort as Cognitive Reappraisal in MiCBT

Cognitive reappraisal in CBT involves a disputation of “distorted thinking” to help people rectify their views to align with “reality”. Similarly, the Right Effort is a central skill set in the “Eightfold Noble Path” in Buddhist psychology, which teaches people to notice the kind of thoughts that inhabit their mind, choose carefully to think helpful ...

Masterclass 16: Therapy Contracting in MiCBT

MiCBT begins with an important contractual agreement between the therapist and client. Although the use of a therapy contract is common in standard CBT, it is constructed and presented differently in MiCBT in a way that motivates and prepares clients for an ongoing commitment to daily meditation practice. The MiCBT therapy contract ...

Masterclass 19: The importance of teaching ethical behaviour in MiCBT

A client’s destructive behaviour towards themself or others precipitates crisis or prevents recovery. Therefore, encouraging clients to prevent harmful actions and perform helpful ones is an important aspect of good therapy.

Masterclass 21: Recognising Stages of Insight during MiCBT

Much has been said about the potential “adverse effects” of mindfulness and the importance of using a trauma-informed mindfulness approach. However, the reasons for unpleasant experiences are often poorly understood and the bulk of the literature does not address the mechanisms underlying these effects. Similarly, there is virtually no explanation of the mechanisms underlying the ...
