COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH (CBT) FOR MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based, psycho-social intervention method that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
This interactive Enhanced Professional Learning (EPL) online series will provide collaborative training and practice opportunities essential to the development of CBT therapy skills, specifically for treating anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) both in individual and group therapy.
