Advanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Children and Adolescents

Specialty Workshop

Under the direction of Judith S. Beck, Ph.D., and led by Torrey Creed, Ph.D., this experiential workshop covers advanced techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy for children and adolescents, building on the skills in the Level 1 Child and Adolescent training to explore application and individualization for specific disorders. Topics covered include how to (1) develop an individualized cognitive case conceptualization for youths with OCD or other anxiety disorders or Autism Spectrum Disorder, (2) create a tailored treatment plan from early treatment through relapse prevention, (3) deliver specific, empirically based CBT interventions for individuals and for families, and (4) determine whether those interventions have been effective. Training focuses on therapy with clients between the ages of 7 and 18 with OCD or other anxiety disorders, or Autism Spectrum Disorder. Completion of the Level 1 Child and Adolescent training is highly recommended prior to this training. The workshop often features a special question and answer and role-play session with Dr. Aaron Beck. Participants are encouraged to prepare or have in mind cases for discussion or role-play.

[This training is geared towards certification in CBT through the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and includes 18 CE/CME credits]
