This intensive 5-day training program was created by Dr. Lata McGinn in response to multiple requests from clinicians who have begun learning cognitive behavior therapy through self-study or workshops and are looking to increase their ability to apply CBT concepts and strategies in their current practice.

Clinicians also have the opportunity to receive ongoing consultation following the training. The CBT foundational qualifies you to apply to become a Certified Affiliate through the Academy of Cognitive Therapy by providing you with the 40 hours of required training specifically in cognitive therapy.

The training will cover a range of strategies, foundational to advanced, including:

  • Creating a CBT case conceptualization with the client’s participation to produce meaningful treatment plans and guide therapeutic interventions
  • Defining behavioral targets with precision and measuring treatment outcomes;
  • Utilizing specific cognitive and behavioral strategies, including psycho-education, cognitive restructuring, behavioral experiments, and additional self-management training
  • Adapting CBT with couples, parents, and children/adolescents.

Professionals and students interested in building and deepening understanding of CBT principles in practice.
