Live webinar series

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an empirically validated form of psychotherapy. CBT is used to treat a wide array of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
This introductory training will present cognitive and behavioural strategies including case formulation and conceptualization in cognitive behaviour therapy. Participants will learn identifying, and modifying thoughts, behaviour activation and experiments, exposure, stress-reduction strategies, and problem-solving therapy. The facilitator will demonstrate application of these specific cognitive and behavioural techniques through 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 training is not on a specific client population or clinical disorder. Rather, it provides instruction on a set of tools for application to common and more complex mental health conditions.
Upon completion of the Certificate in CBT level 1, participants will have 24 hours of continuing education that will be recognized by the Canadian Psychological Association and may be applied towards the required 40 hours of formal training in CBT as part of the CACBT certification process.
Registration Fee: $1,100.00 ($990 with promo code CAVERSHAM)
