Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: CBT Theory and Core Treatments Skills
Stefanie Gregware, LMHC & Andrea Wolloff, LMHC

This training will go through the fundamental components that drive cognitive behavioral therapy with an emphasis on application to practice in a variety of treatment settings.  Participants will have the opportunity to consider the theory and core strategies of CBT via case examples, videos, and skills application opportunities.  This training will help people apply the CBT theory and structure to their current cases as well as to have a general understanding of how the structure of treatment and specific treatment strategies will support positive outcomes for those they are treating.  Participants do not need to have any previous experience or training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to benefit from this training. 

Following this training the participants will understand:

  • A basic overview of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Model including the theory behind the treatment structure. 
  • Strategies for assessment and monitoring of treatment progress and outcomes. 
  • The rationale for completing a case conceptualization and an understanding of how to apply assessment information to a CBT case conceptualization.
  • The general structure for a CBT session and strategies for maintaining use of this structure throughout the course of treatment.
