Workshop Participant Spotlight: Kanan Kanakia
This week's workshop, CBT for Children and Adolescents, included Kanan Kanakia, who traveled from Mumbai, India to attend the workshop. She has experience as a psychotherapist, special educator, counselor, and hypnotherapist which allows her to choose the best treatment path for her clients.
After learning about CBT, she wanted to get the actual feel of how to apply CBT and researched Beck Institute workshops, deciding "which better institute than here."
"This workshop was exactly what I was looking for with the know-how and the application in real life and real circumstances."
When asked about Dr. Torrey Creed, the workshop instructor, Kanan replied, "Oh, she's amazing!" She presented real case examples of the topics she was instructing, which made the complex topics easy to grasp.
Kanan also had the opportunity to role play a tough client with Dr. Aaron Beck via Skype.
