The Post-Master's Certificate in Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a 18 session program taking place over two semesters. The program begins with the foundations of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches and quickly progresses to application of these techniques to issues commonly seen in clinical practice including: Depression, Transdiagnostic Anxiety (Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, Panic, etc.), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and more. "Third wave" CBT approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques are weaved into many of the sessions to enhance standard CBT practices. This program will teach practical hands-on clinical skills to help practitioners better help their clients.
All the courses are taught by scholars/practitioners who are active in direct practice. Sessions are very interactive and are taught with a variety of approaches including slides, handouts, worksheets, videos, case examples, role playing, experiential exercises, and facilitated discussion.
