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 November of 2020 and conclude in June of 2022. 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. Recordings of each seminar will be made available for participants who are unable to attend. Participants have the option of participating via videoconference for ALL didactic and consultation groups even when we hold in-person speakers.

Small group consultation sessions will occur during the alternate months, in between the didactic presentations, and will be 90 minutes in length.  No meetings will be scheduled during the months of July and August.  Sessions will be offered at a variety of times, in order to accommodate a wide range of schedules.  Each group will be led by an experienced Alvord, Baker & Associates therapist with expertise in CBT.  

 

Continuing Education / Certificates: Those, who register and participate for the entire course will receive a continuing education certificate for each didactic presentation and, depending on their licensure, may be able to earn credits as well for consultation groups.   Participants who  complete at least 75% of the institute training hours will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the two-year institute.  Didactic-only participants will earn continuing education credits, but will not earn a certificate of completion.

 

Live Web Conferencing: Due toCovid-19, all seminars will take place virtually for the year 2020-2021. After the first year, we will make a decision about whether to offer in-person attendance to those living in the DC Metro area based on the health and safety of the participants and guidance from local government. For those outside the area, or who would like to continue participating through video may continue to do so. Additionally, recordings are made of each session and can be made available to participants who are unable to attend and can earn “homestudy” credit upon completion of a quiz.

 

Cost:  The cost of participation is $1950 for the entire course. This fee covers attendance at all 10 didactic presentations (30 hours), plus 9 small group consultation sessions (13.5 hours) for a total of 43.5 hours. Those, registered for the entire course, will receive a copy of Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens: A Workbook to Break the Nine Thought Habits That Are Holding You Back as well as the audio CD, Relaxation and Self-Regulation for Children and Teens: Mastering the Mind-Body Connection. The cost for the Didactic-only participation (10 didactic presentations; 30 hours) is $1200.
