«Σύγχρονες ενδείξεις και εφαρμογές των Γνωσιακών Συμπεριφοριστικών Προσεγγίσεων» (η ομιλία θα γίνει στα Ελληνικά)
The evolution of different psychotherapy frameworks, particularly CBT, increasing demand, emerging body of evidence, and availability of training create exciting opportunities for their application with a wider population of young people. These also inevitably lead to a need for establishment of standards, competencies and courses without diluting and losing the fidelity of the model. This question will be approached by considering the role of CBT at four levels of child mental health services, in addition to individual practice, i.e. : universal services (schools, juvenile system, social services, charities); specialist professionals providing support to such settings; community multidisciplinary teams; and specialist day or in-patient units. An alternative way of establishing CBT provision is by targeting at risk youth groups with particular characteristics. Most research findings come from trials that targeted disorders such as depression and anxiety; but increasingly interventions and their evaluation are framed in a service context, for example schools or juvenile settings. ‘New’ service groups such as young people in care or young offenders bring new challenges in terms of engagement and application. Similarly, the increasing use of CBT approaches for self-help modalities.
Elements of evaluation will be considered, in terms of methods, measurement and process; not just for research trials but particularly for routine evaluation, small-scale studies and reflective practice. Attention will be given to the development of different levels of training to embrace this wider context of both professionals wishing to acquire CBT skills and young users needing to benefit from its impact.

«Computers and Internet in the psychotherapeutic treatment of children and adolescents» (η ομιλία θα γίνει στα Αγγλικά χωρίς μετάφραση)
This lecture will give an overview on new developments in the area of video games for psychotherapy with children and adolescents.
Despite the omnipresence of computers and the internet, development of therapeutic video games seems rather slow. The game Treasure Hunt was introduced in 2008 to support treatment of children with internalizing and externalizing disorders. Rage Control  is a biofeedback game for children with anger problems. The self-help game SPARX  is  directed at depressed adolescents.  The game ZOO U  aims  to assess and train social skills of primary school children. Ricky and the Spider for young children with obsessive compulsive disorder is meant to support the cognitive-behavioural treatment of these patients. Clash-Back is a French game for adolescents with externalizing problems. Besides SPARX, none of these games was developed to replace psychotherapy, but, instead, to support it. Possible reasons for the relatively slow development of therapeutic games are the high methodological demands concerning an evaluation as well as the considerable costs of game development. Nonetheless, computers and the internet are bound to influence psychotherapy with children and adolescents in the long run.  Whereas presumed cost-effectiveness is one of the main arguments in the scientific debate around therapeutic video games, ethical considerations should not be neglected.

«Quality Management and Psychotherapy-Research on Training, Psychotherapy and Supervision in a Training Institute for CBT Children and Adolescents: A bridge over troubled water ?»
(η ομιλία θα γίνει στα Γερμανικά με μετάφραση στα Ελληνικά)

(Qualitätsmanagement und Psychotherapie-Forschung über Ausbildung, Psychotherapie und Supervision in einem Ausbildungsinstitut für Verhaltenstherapie bei Kindern und Jugendlichen: Ein gewagtes Unternehmen ?)
Quality Management (QM) is a relative new concept related to the ongoing debate about an evidence-based practice in psychotherapy. This presentation discusses the functioning of a training institute for CBT and which meaning QM has in training, psychotherapy of children and adolescents and in supervision of these therapies. Without any doubt CBT is therefore becoming the golden standard in the field of psychotherapy. This presentation describes the aims and the measuring instruments of QM. Represented are the results of a one year age group of therapy (2014). QM contributes for control and improvement of quality in the training of child- and adolescent psychotherapist. It is possible to respond to interesting questions of psychotherapy research, to some clinical pictures and to effective treatment techniques. It is about ethical questions also, so for what QM should not be abused.

Overall QM is a possibilty for amelioration of quality and to evaluate the results after treatment.
QM aims to provide and to guarantee high-standard health care and to improve the efficiency of health services.
