Workshop Description

(CBT) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on teaching coping skills to target psychological problems. The CBT approach is an evidence-based therapeutic approach and can be applied across many diagnostic categories and treatment populations. A diversity of current approaches within the CBT paradigm will be reviewed: CBT, REBT, ACT, Schema, and Trail Based Cognitive models. Std’s will gain an understanding of the cross-cutting techniques across all sub-groups and understand the differences.

This practical mini-course will provide students an understanding of the principles and practice of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an empirically validated treatment model. Students will gain an understanding of the (CBT) Cognitive-Behavioral approach as a framework for treating a variety of mental health concerns. In addition to understanding the theoretical context for this model, this course will offer a practical skills approach for students to utilize directly in clinical settings.
