PSYR 8240 - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


(5 cr.) Students in this course will examine the historical and theoretical underpinnings of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)/Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). Students will demonstrate the use of case conceptualization from a CBT perspective and will integrate and apply the therapeutic skills and techniques of CBT in the solution of life problems to mental health disorders. In examining ethical responsibility, students will analyze the appropriateness of using CBT with diverse populations, discussed within the context of empirically supported interventions. During the in-residence portion of the class, students will demonstrate and practice the skills of CBT/REBT. This course is provided in-residence, which means that students divide their time between online activities and activities completed in-residence, with the majority of the instruction occurring face-to-face during the in residence class meetings. This format allows the student to integrate the online didactic learning experience with hands-on skills demonstration.
