Specialized Programs ~The College Success Program

Manhattan/Westchester NY

At CBC’s Clinical and Wellness Centers we are committed to providing compassionate evidence – based treatment programs to address a wide range of emotional, behavioral, lifestyle management and personal development issues.

Our therapists practice leading edge treatments based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), with our primary goal to create positive and enduring change for all of our clients.

The College Success Program

Cognitive Behavioral Consultants offers summer and winter break programs for young adults who are either making the transition to college, or are in college or returning to college and would like to improve their social and/or academic success.

This program offers two weekly groups, each focused on a different set of skills. Participants can join both groups if they would benefit from skills and practice in both areas or can opt into one of the group offerings if they are seeking to improve one of these areas.

The Academic Success Group is Designed to help increase organization, planning, and self-management skills including:

• Creating and maintaining a calendar of appointments, responsibilities, and deadlines
• Organizing papers, notebooks, and files
• Learning how to get started on assignments/projects, as well as how to work on them through completion
• Breaking down large projects into component parts with an action plan
• Increasing focus and sustained attention
• Strategies for reducing procrastination and improving self-control

The Social Success Group is designed to help participants gain skills in navigating social situations and improve
confidence including:

• Challenging worry thoughts experienced in social situations
• Conversational skills (starting a conversation, ending one, transitions)
• Assertiveness skills (getting what you want, saying no effectively)
• Reduce anxiety in social settings through practice, psychoeducation, and real-life activities

Both groups will include a focus on teaching new skills and will also facilitate skills practice in between sessions, to
ensure that skills generalize to the outside environment and both also provide the support of other young adults who struggle with similar issues.

Check our calendar for upcoming classes.
