Course Description:
Cognitive therapy, while one of the most common therapies of the 21st century, is also frequently misunderstood. In this course, you will learn the theory, practice and philosophy of cognitive therapy. You will learn the 3 levels of thinking that humans experience and how cognitive distortions appear at each level.  You will also learn how to intervene at each level. We will examine ways to implement cognitive therapy concepts with simple skill interventions as well as address pitfalls and mistakes often made by therapists attempting to implement cognitive therapy principles with their clients. 

One of the most misunderstood aspects of cognitive therapy is the significance of emotional presence in the process. You will learn the importance of emotion in cognitive therapy and the specific relationship between distressing emotions (depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, resentment, etc.) and their underlying cognitive process.

The course will cover fundamental interventions such as developing thought records, tailoring the process to the client, and scaling, as well as original concepts as the empathic flip and active versus objectified emotions and their relationship to effective cognitive therapy.

While the course will cover cognitive therapy for all emotional distress, the program will focus on cognitive therapy for anxiety.
