Back to Basics: Strengthening the Fundamentals in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Anxiety and Depression

Workshop Duration
2 days/12 hours
Workshop Level
intended for mental health professionals familiar with treatment of anxiety or depression but with varying levels of CBT experience

Therapist drift can be a problem for even the most experienced, highly trained cognitive-behavioral therapist.  Our tendency to drift from well-established, effective therapeutic strategies for anxiety and depression is a serious threat to clinical effectiveness.  The workshop addresses this challenge to treatment integrity by focusing on issues and solutions to therapist drift, with particular attention to how the fundamentals of CBT can be re-established and integrated into daily clinical practice.  With a two-fold emphasis on the fundamentals of CBT and maintaining treatment integrity, this workshop is aimed at all levels of CBT training, from the novice to the seasoned clinician.
