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.

Are meals included in the cost of the workshop?

A continental breakfast, refreshments, and light snacks will be available throughout the workshop. Lunch will not be provided as part of the workshop. However, the Marriott has a restaurant and there are several eateries available within walking distance of the hotel.

Do you offer a group room rate for the workshop?

Yes. For your convenience, we have reserved rooms at the Courtyard Marriott hotel (where the workshop will be taking place). They are offering a reduced rate for participants of this workshop. To take advantage, please use this link to book your room by midnight on Friday, July 6th.

Does Beck Institute offer internships or post-doctoral fellowships?

What are the requirements for practicing as a cognitive therapist?

All professionals who practice psychotherapy must do so within the legal requirements of their own locales. No legal body regulates the practice of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT); however, competent cognitive behavior therapists 1) have received training and supervision specific to CBT and 2) undertake ongoing efforts to develop and maintain their competence. Beck Institute strongly supports certification by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy as a way to promote standards of practice and care.
