We are highly committed to the education of professionals.

Our belief is that the knowledge we possess should be shared. We are also interested in bringing the best and the brightest researchers and service providers to share their knowledge with our community. We achieve this through offering a rich and diverse calendar of professional continuing education workshops and a 2-year Training Institute for CBT focused on work with children and adolescents.

Training Institute for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

We offer a 2 year Training Institute for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children and Adolescents. This training includes didactic presentations and small group consultation sessions. The 2020-2022 program will be virtual-only at least through June 2021. The second year (September 2021 to June 2022) will continue to offer virtual (didactic and consult group) with the possibility of an in-person option depending on the state-of-emergency. You may choose to participate in the full institute or purchase each didactic as a standalone CE or home study. For additional information, click here.
