Today, the mental health field is focused on evidenced-based and short-term
counseling and psychotherapy for several reasons. First, clinicians and
treatment centers need to practice an approach that is supported by
psychotherapy outcome research. In other words, the approach must work.
Secondly, 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. The systematic approach helps the therapist know
where he or she is in the therapeutic process at any given point. Because many
approaches to CBT are not particularly systematic, the systematic nature of the
CBT approach presented in this seminar is very comforting and reassuring to both
novice and experienced CBT therapists.
