Description

Program Summary

A cognitive-behavioral approach is a foundational model for working with clients demonstrating behaviors which contradict their desired outcomes.

This course looks at the Behavioral and Cognitive components separately as well as how they both work together to prevent and treat self defeating behaviors while helping clients develop pro-social replacements that are conducive to realizing goals and objectives.

Predominantly a knowledge transfer, this webinar aims to familiarize participants with the concepts and key elements of this evidence-based practice to enhance staff efficacy in helping their clients successfully achieve desired outcomes, prevent recidivism and minimize the propensity for relapse.

  • Learn how it applies in youth settings
  • Understand pathways to relapse, the process of recidivism and how to prevent them
  • Be in a position to help clients develop a relapse prevention plan
