CBT Tokyo will be held on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel in the central (and very fashionable) Ginza District. The workshop, entitled Social CBT, runs from 9:00AM to 12:15PM.A Tokyo orientation and slideshow immediately follows the workshop. Bilingual (Japanese-Canadian) CBT Canada staff who have lived in Tokyo will be in attendance. You're free thereafter to join your travelling companions in exploring one of the world's most dynamic cities.Social CBT: High-Impact Tools for Improving Social SatisfactionSocial isolation corrodes both emotional and physical health.

The "loneliness epidemic" leads many patients to (mis)use your office as their primary source of social support. The physician's burden can be very heavy. State-of-the-art cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) provides the family physician with much more than the typical advise of "join a club". Upon completing the Social CBT workshop you'll have dozens of practical tools to improve the relations between friends, colleagues, and couples.

Special topics include ten-minute couples counseling, tips for overcoming social anxiety, scientific determinants of friendship, bereavement in DSM-5, and the art & science of forgiveness.Head instructor Greg Dubord, MD is nicely warmed up after giving over 300 CBT workshops, and a University of Toronto CME Teacher of the Year. Assistant faculty includes Clement Sun, MD and Rosanna Lima, MD, PhD. NOTE: Although the Social CBT workshop may be taken by itself, we encourage you to also consider the Asian CME Cruise before it, which runs from April 11-25, 2016. Staying a few days longer will give you a better feel for Tokyo, the world's largest and arguably most fascinating city. Well-behaved non-medical spouses may audit this workshop free of charge.
