Certificate in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) level 1: The foundations

Presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar series: June 2, 3, 9 and 10, 2022 | 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST

Facilitator: Nili Benazon, PhD.

This introductory, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) training will present cognitive and behavioural strategies including CBT case formulation and conceptualization for use when working with youth and/or adult clients. Participants will learn identifying, and modifying thoughts, behaviour activation and experiments, exposure, stress-reduction strategies, and problem-solving therapy.

Dr. Nili Benazon will demonstrate application of these specific cognitive and behavioural techniques through clinical examples. Participants will listen to prepared lectures, view video illustrations, discuss clinical case examples and engage in exercises to consolidate learning.

The focus of this training is not on a specific client population or clinical disorder. Rather, it provides instruction on a set of tools for application to common and more complex mental health conditions.
