Through our Cognitive Behavior Training Institute, mental health professionals participate in a 2-year training program designed to advance their expertise and experience in the understanding of and provision of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with children and adolescents. The Institute provides both didactic training and consultation/case discussion. Trainings take place every other month and last 3 hours and 15 minutes (3 hours of instruction with a 15 minute break). Small group consultation sessions occur during the alternate months and last 90 minutes. No meetings are scheduled during the months of July and August. Participants will receive a continuing education certificate for each didactic presentation that they attend either online or in person. Participants who complete at least 75% of the total institute training hours will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the two-year institute. Each group is led by an experienced Alvord Baker & Associates therapist with expertise in CBT. For additional information, contact our Professional Development coordinator, Dr. Keri Linas (301) 593-6554 ext. 58, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Those who register by July 31, 2018, will receive a free 3-hour continuing education seminar offered by Alvord, Baker & Associates. Our course offerings are typically scheduled between September 2018 and June 2019. The list will be available soon.
