Aaron Beck is considered to be the father of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy. In the last half-century, his research into this ground-breaking treatment has transformed psychotherapy and has established a new standard of care.Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is increasingly recognized as the treatment of choice for many disorders. It is also rapidly becoming an essential component of every clinicians’ toolkit. This 4-part series is intended to provide a complete examination of the most current techniques. The newcomer to CBT will get a comprehensive set of skills to bring their practice into the 21st century. Experienced CBT practitioners will learn the latest developments based on the most current research.Initially developed as a treatment for depression, CBT is now known to be effective with the anxiety disorders, personality disorders, non-suicidal self-injury, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and, most recently, as a key component in the treatment of psychotic disorders. CBT is fully effective with children, adolescents and adults.CBT is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on understanding and changing problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviors and thus has a sustained and positive impact on the person’s emotional wellbeing.You will learn the theoretical foundation of CBT, how to conceptualize cases within a CBT framework, conduct assessments and develop specific treatment plans and strategies.

You will also learn how to employ cognitive restructuring, behavioral strategies, exposure and behavioral experiments. This foundational training will provide the practitioner with an understanding of the theoretical structure of CBT and the essential clinical skills you can apply in your practice.
