Is there a difference between the student workshop and the CBT for Depression and Suicide workshop?

The content presented in our Graduate Student workshop is identical to our Core workshop (CBT for Depression & Suicide). The Graduate Student workshop is different in that it is only open to graduate students, psychiatric residents, pre-doctoral interns, or post-doctoral fellows in a mental health or related field (health, education, etc.). Additionally, this workshop does not provide CEs and the cost is significantly discounted to accommodate students.
