Course Description:

Do you have a client who everyone else has given up on?
They’ve seen multiple therapists; without the relief they want and deserve. Maybe you feel stuck with this client – and at this point, even the client believes they are not cable of getting better.

You can offer them hope … with practical interventions that are proven to WORK!
Evidence points to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as one of the most effective treatments for many chronic, recurring, and challenging mental health conditions. If you don’t use this method or if you’ve been using CBT skills and aren’t getting the response you expected, then don’t miss this opportunity to master a fresh set of clinical tools and skills that will transform your practice. This is NOT a “one-strategy-fits-all” approach. This CBT course offers you a complete collection of practical ways to integrate this empirically supported approach in your very next session.

  • Proven, effective techniques you can use with your clients for the most common presenting problems … including anxiety, depression and trauma.
  • A collection of specific, practical tips with real-world examples to help you adapt these proven principles to fit your client’s unique needs …building a strong, collaborative relationship with them and shifting their negative beliefs without your client feeling disrespected or shamed.
  • Example scripts to masterfully overcome the most common objections and problems therapists encounter at each stage of therapy.
Objectives:

  1. Choose methods for conducting CBT psychoeducation to elicit motivation from clients.
  2. Develop case conceptualization skills for treatment of DSM-5® conditions.
  3. Assess behavioral techniques to modify maladaptive behaviors.
  4. Evaluate key behavioral activation strategies useful for alleviating treatment resistant depression.
  5. Recommend behavioral methods to overcome intrusive, obsessive compulsive thoughts.
  6. Incorporate exposure and cognitive processing interventions used to treatment PTSD and trauma.
  7. Apply assessment tools for CBT with individual and family dysfunction.
