Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: 4-Day Workshop

Presented by: Dr. Karen Roberts, Ph.D., C.Psych.

(On-line Virtual Workshop)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a structured therapeutic approach that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs are related to emotions and behaviours. In this type of therapy, the client and therapist use a collaborative approach to identify both thoughts and behaviours that may be standing in the way of the client’s mental health functioning. CBT has been shown to be effective for a wide array of mental health difficulties, including: depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, eating disorders, substance abuse, and various medical conditions.
