CPSY265 (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy)

Provides a "hands-on" approach to understanding the basic tenets of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Beginning with a comprehensive review of the fundamental concepts and research supporting CBT, students will learn about and practice cognitive behavioral therapy through didactic lectures, experiential learning, readings, group discussion, videos, and role-plays. A primary focus in this class is practical applications of CBT including relaxation training, activity scheduling, and development of treatment plans for diverse populations. Prerequisites: 200; 218.
