Introduction to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Ann Marie Roepke, Ph.D.

Description of Training:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is an evidence-based approach that can help clients improve their mood, manage anxiety and stress, and address other difficulties in functioning. In this 6-hour training, participants will explore cognitive and behavioral strategies for addressing depression, anxiety, stress, and other difficulties. Emphasis will be given to three key tools: cognitive restructuring, behavioral activation, and exposure therapy. Training participants will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways including lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and experiential learning activities designed to provide a richer understanding of cognitive-behavioral therapies.

At the end of this training participants will be able to:
•Describe the cognitive-behavioral model
•Explain how to use cognitive restructuring to help clients change maladaptive thoughts
•Create a hierarchy for exposure therapy to improve anxiety
•Describe how to plan and implement behavioral activation to improve mood

Audience: Direct service providers in mental health / behavioral health settings (e.g. clinical social workers, marriage & family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, behavioral health technicians, peer support specialists, etc.).
