|About||Flexible Intensive Training in CBT, Face-to-Face and via Distance Education.|
|Mission||Our mission is to provide high-quality, evidence-based training in CBT for mental health professionals.|
Busy therapists face many demands these days. Clients want (and deserve) effective treatment for complex problems. Insurance companies ask us to provide short-term treatment and to demonstrate “medical necessity.” Agencies want us to maintain a hefty caseload with high levels of client satisfaction. In addition, we’re expected to be knowledgeable about evidence-based treatment. Many therapists want to cope with these challenges by updating their skills and obtaining advanced clinical training but they need training that is flexible and focused on clinical practice.
Cognitive Therapy is an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy that is effective with a wide range of problems. The cognitive perspective provides a conceptual framework that makes therapy with complex clients less confusing and frustrating. In addition, cognitive-behavioral techniques provide powerful tools for alleviating current distress and for accomplishing lasting changes.
The Clinical Practice of Cognitive Therapy is an intensive training program that consists of a series of seminars held one day a month for ten months. The seminars provide hands-on training in the application of Cognitive Therapy in clinical practice. They combine lectures and readings with video, demonstrations, case consultation, and practice in the use of cognitive-behavioral techniques. The program is designed for practicing mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, psychiatric nurses, etc.) who can apply the material with their own clients.
This program offers much more than a book or a one-day workshop can provide, including:
• Intensive, hands-on training that you can apply in clinical practice right away
• A flexible schedule – complete the program on your own timetable (even if it takes a few years)
• Lively, engaging faculty who make the class interesting as well as useful
• Texts that focus on the practical application of CBT with a broad rang
