About this Training

Essential topics include conceptualizing cases according to the cognitive model, structuring sessions, developing a sound therapeutic relationship, and collaboratively developing Action Plans. You will practice by using CBT techniques on yourself, to give you a greater understanding of why and how to use specific interventions and how to better explain the rationales and process to clients. Role play demonstrations, annotated transcripts, conceptualization diagrams, worksheets, and clinical roundtables with a panel of expert therapists illustrate the main principles of CBT treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basic principles and assumptions of CBT.
  • Develop knowledge of the theoretical foundations and empirical support for CBT.
  • Understand the role of assessment in CBT and how to conduct a thorough assessment of presenting problems and symptoms.
  • Develop knowledge of the core CBT techniques, such as cognitive restructuring, exposure, and behavioral activation.
  • Develop the ability to conceptualize cases from a CBT perspective and develop treatment plans based on this conceptualization.
  • Understand how to implement CBT techniques with sensitivity to client diversity and individual differences.
  • Develop skills in conducting effective therapeutic sessions using CBT techniques.
  • Understand the importance of the therapeutic relationship in CBT and how to establish and maintain this relationship.
  • Develop skills in adapting CBT techniques for different populations, such as children, adolescents, and older adults.
  • Understand the ethical and professional considerations involved in practicing CBT, such as informed consent, confidentiality, and scope of practice.
