Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

for Children andAdolescents

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a set of therapies that are practical and results-oriented, and designed to reduce symptoms and improve a person’s quality of life.   CBT therapies are evidence based and have been proven effective with a multitude of problem areas including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and anger management.  Literally hundreds of studies have been conducted that show the efficacy of CBT.  Alvord, Baker & Associates, LLC has significant expertise in the provision and teaching of CBT.  For this reason, we are pleased to offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children and Adolescents. The curriculum will focus on the use of CBT specifically with children and adolescents, which can be a very engaging and collaborative process that helps young people to take responsibility for their own progress.  Children and teens are encouraged to recognize their own thought patterns, to notice when these patterns are helping and when they are hurting.  CBT emphasizes the connection between feelings, thoughts and behaviors, and teaches coping skills and strategies to address each.  CBT works best when treatment strategies are also practiced outside the therapy room and when developed in collaboration with children, teens, parents, and community professionals (teachers, coaches, etc.).  

Structure and Schedule:The Training Institute’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children and Adolescents will begin in October of 2016 and conclude in June of 2018.   There will be two components: didactic presentations and small group consultation sessions. The ten (10) didactic presentations will occur every other month, excluding the summer, over the course of the two years.  Each will be 3 hours and 15 minutes in length, allowing for 3 hours of instruction and a 15 minute break.  They will each start at 8:45 AM and finish at 12:00 PM.  DVD's of each seminar will be made available for participants who are unable to attend. Participants also have the option of participating via videoconference.  The schedule follows:
