1015: Cognitive Behavior Therapy in Nursing Practice
Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT) is empirically supported as effective for a wide variety of clinical disorders. Through a process of collaborative empiricism, patients learn specific skills that identify distorted thinking, and inaccurate/dysfunctional beliefs. This workshop will review CBT, provide an overview of the structure of a typical session and demonstrate the use of CBT in real world situations.
