Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)





Dedalus Hyde, Psy.D.

There is no question today that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is an important tool in a clinician’s toolbox.  Significant empirical research has demonstrated its effectiveness with issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, phobias, panic disorder, OCD, ADHD, and social phobia.  At IAP, we view CBT as a general theory influenced by Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy (CT), Behavioral Theory, and Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT).  This general theory provides a structure for a number of interventions culled from a variety of theoretical sources to improve treatment effectiveness.  These sources include Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Exposure with Response Prevention, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused therapy, and others.


The purpose of this 6-hour workshop will be to introduce several of the central tenets of CBT, with an emphasis on utility in clinical practice.  A mixture of didactic lecture, video and role-play will be utilized to improve the learning opportunity.  This workshop will be satisfying to clinicians who have had no exposure to CBT as well as clinicians who are looking to consolidate their learning, refresh their understnding of CBT, and to ask clarifying questions of areas they find they get stuck.  Also, Dr. Hyde will be providing additional training through the Institute for the Advancement of Psychotherapy where trainees can attend consultation groups, live training where they observe sessions or are the therapist in individual session using CBT with Dr. Hyde calling in with guidance, and be referred clients, if they would like, to work with and master the CBT skills.
