Modular CBT for Children and Families:
Offering High Quality Individualized Therapy in the Real World
While there is substantial evidence for the effective treatment of depression with CBT, researchers have demonstrated a high unmet need and poorer outcomes for children and adolescents in community-based settings. In recent years, there has been increasing research support for a more flexible modular approach to treatment to address the limitations of standard CBT treatment for children and youth.
Modular CBT for Children and Adolescents with Depression: A Clinician's Guide to Individualized Treatment was created to assist therapists as they individualize CBT to meet the needs of their diverse treatment population, while still relying on best practices grounded in mental health treatment research. This workshop will offer an interactive and dynamic opportunity for mental health professionals to develop many of the Modular CBT skills presented in Modular CBT for Children and Adolescents with Depression from the authors, and will prepare attendees to utilize this step-forward treatment model in their own practice in real-world settings.
Attendees will demonstrate the ability to create a child, youth, and family treatment plan grounded in the Modular CBT treatment approach.
Attendees will apply the Modular CBT framework to current clients and families to facilitate discussion and critique to overcome barriers to implementing Modular CBT.
Attendees will practice using an array of treatment tools and resources that will support effective implementation of a variety of Modular CBT modules.
