CBT for Depression

Learn the fundamentals of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for depression and suicidality through an experiential workshop at the Beck Institute. Led by Judith S. Beck, Ph.D. and other expert Beck Institute faculty, participants will learn how to conceptualize depressed clients, plan treatment based on an individualized conceptualization, establish the therapeutic relationship, instill hope, and use effective cognitive and behavioral strategies to motivate clients to complete homework, modify their maladaptive thinking and behavior, and solve problems on their own. Participants will learn how to elicit and respond to clients’ feedback, measure progress, and prevent relapse. The third day of training focuses on identifying and assessing suicidal clients, implementing specific strategies for preventing and managing suicidal crises, and ethical issues.

All participants in our Core 1 workshop receive a complimentary Cognitive Therapy Worksheet Packet.
