Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a scientifically tested form of psycho-therapy that is effective for many different disorders and problems. In con-trast to many forms of therapy, CBT is a solution-focused approach to treatment, oriented toward solving problems and learning skills. Research has shown CBT to be helpful with many psychiatric problems, psychological disorders and medical issues. It has been remarkably effective even with individuals who have serious mental illnesses, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to review and apply advanced cognitive behavioral therapy skills and techniques. Using emerging findings from the field of neuroscience, this workshop presents a new model of neuroscience-informed cognitive behavioral therapy that can be easily applied to attendees’ current work.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this workshop, participants should increase their abil-ity to effectively care for clients by being able to:
- Apply advanced cognitive behavioral skills and techniques
- Explore the implications of emerging neuroscience research on conventional CBT
- Examine neuroscience-informed CBT (n-CBT)
- Apply n-CBT to case scenarios, as well as implement these skills in their daily practice.
