Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

School of Professional Psychology and Health ICPW 5621 1.00

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been so effective in clinical trials that it is the standard of care for many psychiatric disorders, including depression and anxiety, and all therapists are now expected to have at least some familiarity with it. This course provides an overview of CBT from its origins in Pavlov and Skinner, though its therapeutic success in Beck and Ellis, and its inclusion of mindfulness in third-wave behavioral treatments such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). This class will combine theory presented in lectures and readings with experience in role-plays, demonstrations and mindfulness exercises. ICPW student
