WBT course 2024

Introductory Course on Well-Being Therapy

September 18-19, 2024 - Tübingen, Germany

A specific psychotherapeutic strategy for modulating psychological well-being and pursuing euthymia, Well-Being Therapy (WBT), has been developed and validated in a number of randomized controlled trials. WBT has been manualized (Fava, GA: Well-Being Therapy. Treatment Manual and Clinical Applications. Basel, Karger, 2016). Translations of the manual have been published in Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Hungarian, Turkish, and Polish.

A certification process for WBT has been promoted by the Academy of Well-Being Therapy, of which Professor Giovanni A. Fava, MD, is President. The certification process includes attendance of an Introductory Course, individual supervision of two clinical cases treated with WBT, and case presentation at an Advanced Course.

The next Introductory Course on Well-Being Therapy will be held on September 18-19, 2024, in Tübingen as a satellite, independent pre-congress workshop of the 27th World Congress of the International College of Psychosomatic Medicine (ICPM).

The Introductory Course includes two days: Wednesday, September 18, from 2 PM to 6 PM, and Thursday, September 19, from 9 AM to 12.30 PM. The aim of the course is to provide an in-depth understanding of assessment strategies, indications and clinical applications of WBT. The course is challenging and intensive, and represents an excellent opportunity for clinicians to improve their knowledge on the assessment and treatment of mental disorders. Case presentations and interactive learning strategies will allow to reach this purpose. The Introductory Course will be held in English. Click HERE to download the programme of the event.
