Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CBI) is based on the principle that behavior is mediated by cognitive processes. Students learn to examine their thoughts and feelings, recognize when negativity arrises and use strategies to change their emotions and behavior. Educators are encouraged to bring specific student concerns to the workshop to develop an implementation plan.
- Be able to help students identify common cognitive distortions
- Learn ways to work with mental health professionals to assist students with changing emotional patterns that limit access to educational growth
- Learn and practice "mindfulness" techniques in the classroom that assist students in developing self-awareness and managing stress
- Become familiar with resources for CBI
