In this introductory four-day certificate program, participants will learn the main strategies for cognitive and behavioural therapy (CBT). Tools discussed will include: case formulation and conceptualization; identification and modification of thoughts; behaviour activation; behaviour experiments; exposure; role playing; cognitive rehearsal; and problem-solving. This course is not specific to a particular client population or clinical disorder. It provides instruction on a set of tools that can be applied to common and more complex mental health conditions. The format of this training includes didactic presentation, experiential exercises, feedback, and a focus on micro-skill development. 

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is an empirically-validated form of psychotherapy used to treat a wide array of common psychological disorders. In this introductory course to CBT, participants will learn how to apply a wide array of CBT strategies, including: case conceptualization, cognitive restructuring; identifying and modifying erroneous beliefs; problem-solving; exposure therapy; behavioural activation and behavioural experiments. The instructor will explain these strategies, while providing clinical examples from common psychological problems such as anxiety and depression. Participants will listen to prepared lectures, view video illustrations, discuss clinical case examples and engage in experiential exercises to consolidate learning. This course is intended for newcomers to CBT. It offers a set of tools that participants can then adapt to their specific area of practice and client population.
