Description

Do you have a client who everyone else has given up on?

They’ve seen multiple therapists; without the relief, they want and deserve. Maybe you feel stuck with this client – and at this point, even the client believes they are not capable of getting better.

You can offer them hope … with practical interventions that are proven to WORK!

Evidence points to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as one of the most effective treatments for many chronic, recurring, and challenging mental health conditions.

If you’ve been using CBT skills and aren’t getting the response you expected, then don’t miss this opportunity to master a fresh set of clinical tools and skills that will transform your practice. This is NOT a “one-strategy-fits-all” approach.

This CBT course offers you a complete collection of practical ways to integrate this empirically supported approach in your very next session.

  • Proven, effective techniques you can use with your clients for the most common presenting problems … including anxiety, depression and trauma.
  • A collection of specific, practical tips with real-world examples to help you adapt these proven principles to fit your client’s unique needs … building a strong, collaborative relationship with them and shifting their negative beliefs without your client feeing disrespected or shamed.
  • Example script examples to masterfullyovercome the most common objections and problems therapists encounter at each stage of therapy.
