Behavioral activation (BA) is a “well-established, empirically validated treatment” of depression (Mazzucchelli, Kane, and Rees, 2009). Learn strategies for using BA with patients who often present with severe depression and a variety of co-occurring diagnoses. Information will be presented on a novel treatment approach including BA, strategies from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and exposure-based treatments for anxiety. You will learn how BA is used to reduce depression while assisting individuals in living a more meaningful life in line with their values. You will also learn strategies for frequently assessing and managing non-suicidal self-injurious behaviors/urges as well as suicidal ideation. Significant time will be allotted to discussion of this approach with adolescents, including modifications that may be needed, in addition to using this approach with adults.
