An Overview of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

An Overview of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

As a behavioral health professional, you may work with clients who make little headway in therapy because their cognitive distortions or “problematic thinking” patterns prevent them from living full lives. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on the recognition and shifting of maladaptive thoughts and beliefs. Consequently, CBT can be used to treat a variety of behavioral health issues or concerns. Because CBT is an evidence-based practice, it is widely used by counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses. In this interactive course, you will learn introductory concepts of CBT, including how it can help resolve your clients’ problems concerning dysfunctional cognitions and behaviors, using an integration of cognitive and behavioral approaches. This course lays a foundation for the CBT approach for individuals with no prior exposure to this model, upon which you can later build greater familiarity through more advanced training.
