Introduction to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/Skill Development

Event Dates
All times are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.

The role of practitioners in the criminal justice system is rapidly changing from enforcer or resource broker to facilitator of behavior change. Cognitive behavioral skill building is an evidence-based practice for changing difficult and entrenched behaviors including antisocial thinking, addiction, and impulsivity. The partnership between treatment providers and criminal justice professionals requires that all professionals understand cognitive behavioral therapy and skill development. During the webinar, you will walk through the steps to develop cognitive behavioral skills in regular and on-going conversations with clients. Additionally, you will learn about the elements of good, evidence-based cognitive behavioral services.
