Essentials of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

February 21, 2023 | 10:00 AM – 1 PM

As the name suggests, Cognitive Therapy (CT) focuses on the way people think (“cognition”). The concept behind CT is that our thoughts about a situation affect how we feel (emotionally and physically) and how we behave in that situation. When people are in distress, the way in which they process information may become distorted, which – if uncorrected – may also lead to dysfunctional behaviors.

CT is a well-researched and evidence-based form of therapy. It has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of psychiatric disorders and psychological problems in more than one thousand studies. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is focused on the present, practical and problem-solving oriented. Patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives, including: identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.

In this experiential workshop, licensed social workers and counselors who are new to CBT will learn how to conceptualize cases, structure therapy sessions, and incorporate several cognitive and behavioral interventions to help clients improve their mood, reach their goals, and learn to be their own therapists.

Training attendees can anticipate to share their audio and video for active skill practice in breakout rooms and case vignette demonstrations
