Theoretical and Practical Introduction to Cognitive Behaviorla Therapy (CE 3)

Mary K. Alvord, Ph.D

Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM

INTRODUCTORY & INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: Target audience: clinicians and mental health professionals.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is comprised of a set of therapies that include cognitive and behavioral treatments. They are evidence-based. They have been found to be effective for a range of mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, PTSD, behavioral dysregulation and OCD.

This introductory workshop will review the theoretical foundations of the treatments in order to help the clinician formulate appropriate strategies. While not CBT specific, we will begin with a review of Motivational Interviewing and Transtheoretical Stages of Change that helps boost motivation for change. Assessment and the collaborative process of CBT will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the core components of CBT and the techniques for generalization and maintenance of change.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the basic theoretical framework of CBT.
  2. Summarize the model of clinical assessment in CBT.
  3. Explain six core components of CBT.
  4. List two techniques for generalization and maintenance of change.
