THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE AND ENHANCE EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT 

Facilitator: Janina Scarlet, Ph.D.
Hosted by: Relationship Training Institute

Popular culture, including superheroes and characters from fantasy and science fiction, has become an important part of American life. Superhero Therapy incorporates pop culture examples as metaphors for teens and young adult clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, addiction disorders, (as well as clients on the autism spectrum) into evidence-based treatments—including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).

Superhero Therapy involves more than just enhancing therapeutic alliance with clients who connect with pop culture elements. It involves actively integrating pop culture with behavioral modification skills, such as behavioral exposures, mindfulness, and committed action to increase client buy-in and enhance treatment outcomes. Join international speaker/trainer Dr. Janina Scarlet in exploring Superhero Therapy and learn how to better help your clients in promoting positive changes. After all, even Superheroes need help sometimes. 

In this workshop you will learn:

  • What is Superhero Therapy?
  • How to help the client identify their origin story
  • How to incorporate pop culture into evidence-based treatment, such as CBT, DBT, and ACT
  • How to use Superhero Therapy to promote behavioral changes
