Cognitive-Behavioral Group Therapy: Optimizing Therapeutic Outcomes for a Variety of Client Conditions On-Site Training
Effectively conduct CBT while facilitating group interaction/dynamics. Develop protocols to address specific concerns including anxiety and mood disorders, addiction, family issues and health concerns. Age appropriate techniques will be discussed.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be both an efficient and effective form of treatment with long-lasting, empirically validated results when used with individuals. Often, clinicians have attempted to implement the same CBT techniques used in individual therapy in a group format without utilizing the full potential of the group process, resulting in unsuccessful and unsatisfying outcomes for everyone involved. Recently, clinicians have been refining methods and developing protocols specifically designed for a group approach with different client concerns. Leveraging the relational component provided through the group process enhances each client's ability to recognize cognitive errors, generate examples of links between thoughts and feelings, practice newly learned behaviors and receive immediate feedback on a deeper level than in individual therapy.
