Discover the culture, beauty & mystery of Japan! Japan is a magical place, where bustling city streets are home to Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, traditional villages lie nestled on sea shores and in mountain forests, and festivals mark the passing of seasons. Japan is a land of many festivals, most dating back centuries. Summer is the best time to experience these magical events, and this cruise is specifically designed to let you participate in some of the best. CBT Canada & CruiseShipCenters are pleased to offer a Japanese CME cruise from August 3-12, 2017 aboard the spectacular Diamond Princess. We hosted our 2014 & 2016 Asian CME groups on the same ship, and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The workshop is the acclaimed CBT for Depression module, accredited for 12.0 Mainpro-Cs by the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Please join us and you'll gain a plethora of ultra-brief techniques to help your patients defeat depression and be happy. General interest topics covered include procrastination, perfectionism, rumination, self-criticism, self-handicapping, letting go of the past, decision-making, and evidence-based marital enrichment (e.g., exploring Japan together!). Head instructor Greg Dubord, MD is nice & limber from giving over 300 CBT workshops, and is a University of Toronto CME Teacher of the Year.
