Continuing Education in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most successful psychotherapies currently in use. With a growing body of research to back it up, CBT can be used to effectively treat various mental health conditions like depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and more.
No matter your experience in CBT therapy or whether you are just beginning, it is important to stay abreast of research and practice in this field. You can do this by attending continuing education courses offered by therapists and psychologists who specialize in treating mental health issues with CBT techniques.
These courses provide both theory and practical skills for practitioners who want to become proficient at applying this effective approach with clients. Case examples and an online learning system are included to facilitate study of the material. After completing the course, participants must pass an online posttest with an 80% or higher score in order to receive a certificate of completion.
