Now, you might be wondering...
"If CBT has been shown to be so effective...
why hasn't it worked for my clients in the past?"

Using CBT with our clients can be a lot like cooking with an old family recipe.

We already know that the recipe works, but when we step into the kitchen to try and make it ourselves, the result is never quite what we were expecting.

In the end, the smallest details can make the biggest difference.

In the "third wave" of CBT, there have been some amazing additions to the recipe…including Mindfulness, acceptance, values, goals, meta-cognition...

But in many ways, we've also changed the order, the timing, and the basic ingredients, leading to some major misconceptions and misunderstandings of what CBT is and what it isn't.

Then we're stuck wondering what went wrong when our clients don't improve.
In this comprehensive certification training course, you'll learn...
  • Proven, effective techniques you can use with your clients for the most common presenting problems… including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, suicidal thinking, personality disorders, and substance use
  • A collection of specific, practical tips with real-world examples to help you adapt these proven principles to fit your clients' unique needs... building a strong, collaborative relationship with them and shifting their negative beliefs without your clients feeling disrespected or shamed
  • Example scripts to masterfully overcome the most common objections and problems therapists encounter at each stage of therapy... showing you dozens of case studies to help you crush these common barriers
Dr. Sokol will guide you through four comprehensive modules of training:
Mastering the Core Skills of CBT
  • How to get your clients more engaged in therapy starting at the first session… even if therapy wasn't their idea and they can't identify any treatment goals
  • The 13 beliefs most therapists have about CBT that are completely wrong
  • The case conceptualization roadmap that puts the puzzle pieces together so you can confidently say, "I understand this case"
  • 4 simple steps to ensure clients do their homework outside of session every week (and what usually happens if you don't follow them)
  • 7 questions your clients can ask themselves before therapy to make every session more effective
CBT for Depression and Anger
  • How therapists' automatic thoughts can make CBT less effective (and the reframe that instantly puts this in proper perspective)
  • The small, simple step that dramatically improves the chances your client will follow through with completing their mood logs each week
  • 4 different ways to reveal your client's automatic thoughts (and how to uncover them when they can't identify them themselves)
  • The hidden root of your client's anger and 6 steps to help them cope more effectively
CBT for Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Suicidal Thoughts
  • What to do at each stage of therapy to guide your clients from suicidal thinking to choosing life
  • Useful examples of coping card statements to give your clients to reframe negative and potentially dangerous thoughts
  • What to include in your coping plan to help clients during their time of crisis
  • How to help clients have less frequent relapses for manic episodes
  • How the risk/resources ratio can help your clients feel less anxious while still leaving their alarm system connected to detect real danger
  • The biggest myth that therapists believe about CBT and anxiety (and how to turn it on its head to use anxiety as a resource)
  • Updated research on the newest directions in CBT for treating anxiety
CBT for Trauma, Personality Disorders, and Substance Abuse
  • The only factor shown to accurately predict whether someone will develop PTSD after a traumatic event (and how you can use this to get better outcomes with your clients)
  • When to intervene after a traumatic event… and when this might actually increase the risk of developing PTSD
  • How to adapt therapy to be more effective for clients after trauma, whether they're "going through the motions" or experiencing such intense symptoms they can barely tolerate them
