Mental Health Taskforce

  1. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: The Basics of Helping People Get Better

    September 3, 8:00 AM - 3:30 PM @ The Grand Hotel & Conference Center, Peoria

    Today, the mental health field is focused on evidenced-based and short-term counseling and psychotherapy. Clinicians and treatment centers need to practice an approach that is supported by psychotherapy outcome research. In other words, the approach must work. In today's managed care environment, clinicians often are limited in terms of the number of sessions they have to help their clients. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has always been the ideal research-supported, short-term therapy, even before it was popular to practice such an approach! The very instructive nature of CBT produces long-term results because it teaches clients rational self-counseling that they can apply not only to their current concerns, but to anything that might come their way. CBT also emphasizes getting better, rather than feeling better. When CBT clients are "better," they understand exactly why. This seminar will teach you the basics of a very systematic approach to cognitive-behavioral therapy.
