Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
PLEASE NOTE: This training is no longer being offered. If you are interested this training, please contact us at [email protected].
On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, the NH Coalition to End Homelessness will be hosting a training on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Use of CBT is often helpful when working with high need, low resource clients dealing with mental illness. Unfortunately the skills taught in this therapy are generally only available to Masters level therapists. This training seeks to equip case manager level workers with skills to assist in problem solving, containing negative emotion, and moving through negative self talk with clients in need of support to manage multiple life demands. Useful for those working with both mentally ill and non-mentally ill client populations who often appear to “take one step forward, and two steps back.”
The goals of cognitive therapy are to help individuals achieve a remission of their illness and to prevent relapse. Much of the work in sessions involves aiding individuals in solving their real-life problems and teaching them to modify their thinking, behavior, and emotions. Therapists plan treatment on the basis of a cognitive formulation of patients’ illnesses and an ongoing individualized cognitive conceptualization of patients and their difficulties. A developmental framework is used to understand how life events and experiences led to the development of core beliefs, underlying assumptions, and coping strategies, particularly in patients with personality disorders.
The training is being provided by Dr. Loretta Brady of BDS Insight.
