HHD 2557 - COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOR THERAPY

Credits: 3.0

This course introduces the theory and practices of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help students develop a basic therapeutic skill set. The CBT approach applies to a variety of clinical problems and practice settings. CBT is a flexible approach and is used in diverse settings such as inpatient, outpatient and partial hospital programs as well as in schools and community-based programs. Students will learn about how CBT may be used to address issues such as depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, and other emotional and behavioral disorders. In addition to clinical practice, many people find the principles of the cognitive-behavioral model useful in maintaining a healthy emotional outlook in their own lives. This course will emphasize both theory and practice of cognitive-behavioral skills.
