Participants can describe the theoretical underpinnings of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and describe at least two cognitive strategies to support the process of therapy. In this class we cover the basic tenets of the CBT approach to therapy, including a bio-psycho-social case formulation and case study. Using this case study we look at the role of automatic thoughts in developing unhelpful schemas. Strategies include guidelines for engagement, normalizing symptoms, developing the ABC model, creating thought records and evidence records, analyzing cognitive distortions, affirmations, keeping a diary, coping cards, developing homework assignments. The class concludes with some situations in which CBT is not recommended.
