Core Workshop

Learn the essentials of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders through an experiential workshop at Beck Institute. Under the direction of Judith S. Beck, PhD, and led by expert Beck faculty, this workshop focuses on fundamental cognitive behavior theory and treatment for anxiety disorders.

Learn how to conceptualize anxious patients, plan treatment based on the individualized conceptualization, engage the anxious patient in the therapeutic relationship, decrease physiological symptoms of anxiety and increase functional behavior. You will learn how to use evidence-based cognitive and behavioral strategies to help patients identify and respond adaptively to key anxious thoughts and beliefs, restructure maladaptive cognitions and catastrophic misinterpretations, develop exposure hierarchies, build symptom tolerance, eliminate safety behaviors, increase tolerance for uncertainty, and reduce obsessions, compulsions, and avoidance. These cognitive behavioral therapy strategies will be applied to specific diagnoses of generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
