Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Foundation, Application, and Implementation
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a specialized skill that helps persons focus on patterns of thinking that are maladaptive and the beliefs that underlie that thinking. Cognitive behavior therapy is generally short-term and focused on helping clients deal with a very specific problem.
Building on the skills of mindfulness and motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) will help PMHRN’s encourage patients to have self identification and personal growth within specific disorders. Examples of the use of CBT and outcomes in specific disorders will be discussed.
This podcast is the third in a series of four presentations to promote psychiatric mental health evidence-based nursing practice.
