PSY 726 Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Approaches to Counseling
3 hours; 3 credits
This course focuses on CBT case conceptualization and treatment skills to treat anxiety and personality disorders. In addition, depending on the instructor’s specialty, the instructor may teach skills to treat another specific client population (e.g. schizophrenia). Counseling skills taught in this class include collaborative case conceptualization, establishing mutually agreed on treatment goals, structuring and pacing therapy sessions, and addressing issues that arise in the therapist-client relationship. Students will also learn specific interventions for treating anxiety disorders including behavioral experiments, imagery, experiential work, and exposure. Techniques for identifying and reframing automatic thoughts, silent assumptions, and working with more deeply embedded core beliefs or schema for personality disorders will be addressed. Multi-cultural perspectives will be considered.
