Using CBT with Children (November 2021)



This interactive online course provides an orientation and overview of how to use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) skills in clinical work with children.

This course is led by child psychology experts who help participants adapt CBT principles to clinical work with children. They provide an overview of CBT goals and techniques, and an in-depth review of behavioral and cognitive interventions. Course content covers how to conduct assessments, develop case conceptualizations, modify cognitive and behavioral techniques for use with children, measure progress with validated tools, and address relapse prevention. Faculty also discuss how to incorporate parents and caregivers into treatment.

These enhanced skills at working with children are ideal for clinicians in mental health, pediatrics, primary care, and nursing.

The course includes an array of resources, videos and other materials to guide participants. All content and assignments can be completed whenever schedule allows. Weekly call-in times (11/08/2021, 11/15/2021, 11/22/2021, 11/29/2021) allow faculty to hear and respond to questions directly; and an interactive discussion board lets participants post their own questions and interact with peers.
