Presented by Lindsey Thomson, RP, CCC,

Lindsey Thomson is a Registered Psychotherapist working at Family Services Ottawa in the Increasing Access to Structured Psychotherapy Program. Lindsey specializes in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and has received over 300 hours of training and consultation. She enjoys working with the CBT framework as it combines her love for teaching and psychotherapy. In addition to this, Lindsey manages her own business specializing in mental health education and consultation.

Workshop summary:

Feeling stuck with your clients? Not seeing the change in their anxiety that you expected? Help your client confront and decrease their fear through exposure work. This intermediate level workshop will start with a review of the foundations of CBT and focus primarily on learning about, and putting into practice the three types of exposure: situational, imagined and sensation based. This workshop will be a split between traditional learning and individualized experiential learning. Participants will have an opportunity to watch role plays done by Lindsey on each type of exposure, and will also do their own hands on exposure work. Lindsey believes that the most authentic way for therapists to walk alongside their clients is by having lived experience with what they ask their clients to do. Participants are asked to come with an open mind and be prepared to challenge some of their own fears in a safe space.
