I am scheduling my return travel. What time does the workshop end on the last day?

The workshop ends at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET). It usually takes 30-45 minutes to get to the airport and 20-30 minutes to get to 30th Street Station.

What are the prerequisites for attending a workshop?

Participants must hold at least a master’s degree in a mental health, education, medical, or related field, although we do consider graduate students on a case-by-case basis. Graduate Students are eligible to attend our annual Student and Early Career Professional Workshop: CBT for Depression. We recommend (but do not require) participants to attend at least one Core Curriculum workshop before attending a Specialty Workshop.

Which Core Curriculum workshop is right for me?

The Core Curriculum workshops are designed to build the essential knowledge and practice competencies in CBT. Core 1 (Depression) focuses on the fundamentals of CBT: case conceptualization, treatment planning, goal setting, session structure, identifying and responding to automatic thoughts, behavioral experiments, etc. Core 2 (Anxiety) covers theory and treatment specific to the more commonly encountered anxiety disorders such as GAD, Social Phobia, and Panic Disorder. Finally, Core 3 focuses on challenges: personality disorders, problems in the therapeutic relationship, problems with homework completion and therapy engagement, difficulties with identifying cognitions, and other seeming obstacles to therapy. We recommend having taken Core 1 or 2 before Core 3, depending on prior experience and familiarity with CBT.

Do you offer workshops in specialty subjects?

Yes. Throughout the year, Beck Institute offers a changing menu of specialty workshops on a variety of topics. Specialty workshop topics are determined based on feedback from Core Curriculum workshop participants, and reflect current interests and issues.
