CBT with Young Patients: Turbo-charged and Sustainable Practices


This is a virtual event, accessible online. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


Robust empirical findings, anecdotal case reports, and theoretical reviews are quite kind to CBT spectrum approaches with youth experiencing psychological difficulties. Perhaps, the science and practicality explain the fondness many working clinicians express for the treatment paradigm.  While numerous practitioners identify with the clinical model, data suggest far too many therapists misapply the procedures. This workshop emphasizes embedding the multitudinous procedures in CBT’s phenomenological origins and applying the techniques in a real and relevant manner. Attendees will learn both traditional and innovative psychoeducational, target monitoring, behavioral, and cognitive interventions.  Special emphasis will be placed on crafting impactful behavioral experiments. Original webcast date: March 15, 2019.
