Invited Paper: New developments of the ABC model for cognitive-behavioral coaching (Pre-recorded)

Time: 13.00 – 13.45 GMT

Dr Oana David and Cristina Lorint

Cognitive-behavioral coaching (CBC) is an integrative coaching approach, with theoretical roots in the cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for how changes are obtained, and which encompasses techniques that are already empirically supported in CBT. The most important tool adapted to CBC is the ABC model, which is currently considered a transdiagnostic model and underlies the change process. The ABC model has been reframed by David and Breightmeyer (2018) in order to fit in the coaching process. We describe in this paper the new contextual and positive ABC model for CBC and how it can be used in various steps of the coaching process, from assessment, conceptualization and as a technique in the process, with demonstrated results.
