CBT for Depression and Suicide

Learn the fundamentals of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for depression and suicidality through an experiential workshop at the Beck Institute. You will learn how to conceptualize depressed clients, plan treatment based on an individualized conceptualization, establish the therapeutic relationship, instill hope, and use effective cognitive and behavioral strategies to motivate clients to complete homework, modify their maladaptive thinking and behavior, and solve problems on their own. Learn how to elicit and respond to clients’ feedback, measure progress, and prevent relapse. The third day of training focuses on identifying and assessing suicidal clients, implementing specific strategies for preventing and managing suicidal crises, and ethical issues.

All participants in our CBT for Depression workshop receive a complimentary digital copy of the Cognitive Therapy Worksheet Packet.
