Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated form of psychotherapy. Professionals use CBT to treat a wide array of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, and stress. This introductory four-day certificate program will outline cognitive and behavioural strategies including case formulation and conceptualization. As well as application of specific cognitive and behavioural techniques.
This training will explore identifying, and modifying thoughts, behaviour activation and experiments, exposure, stress reduction strategies, and problem-solving therapy. The facilitator will explain and demonstrate these strategies using clinical examples. Participants will listen to prepared lectures, view video illustrations, discuss clinical case examples and engage in exercises to consolidate learning.
The focus of this program is not on a specific client population or clinical disorder. Rather, it provides instruction on a set of tools and their application to common and more complex mental health conditions
