Learn how to apply CBT to clients with chronic medical conditions.

Francine Broder, PsyD, a Beck Institute faculty member, will briefly review the Stages of Change model and discuss its application to chronic illness. You’ll learn how to modify barriers to behavior change: by identifying clients’ key values, setting goals, responding to dysfunctional beliefs, teaching skills, and solving problems.  Then you’ll learn specifically about the application of CBT to diabetes, obesity, and chronic pain—and interventions to promote positive health behaviors. This interactive workshop includes case discussions and experiential exercises.

This workshop is a good fit for mental health and health professionals and allied health practitioners who treat patients struggling with chronic health conditions.
