Intensive. Experiential. Effective.
Cognitive behavioral theory is an extension of ideas that come from both spiritual and secular philosophies that humans have been discussing for millenia. As CBT has evolved into a form of psychotherapy, over 800 studies have been done to empirically validate it, and they have shown CBT's effectiveness across a wide range of issues and conditions.
At AzIAPT we offer a 40-hour intensive training in CBT, where between a small class size and a highly experiential teaching model, you will leave with both theoretical knowledge and the experience of having put that knowledge into practice. Taught by Ryan M. Sheade, LCSW, the Intensives blend core cognitive behavioral theory and techniques with trauma theory to conceptualize your clients' issues and know how to best help them.
Within the 40 hours of the CBT Intensive are 3 hours each of cultural competency and ethics and thus this single training meets all continuing education requirements for one full licensure cycle for Arizona social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, and substance abuse counselors. The CBT Intensives also meet requirements for 60 CEUs for Arizona psychologists. If you are coming from out of state, please consult your licensing statutes - if you would like to email us, we can help you as well to ensure you can get CEUs.
In addition to the collaboration with colleagues during the actual Intensive experience, once per year our CBT Intensive alumni have the opportunity to come back together with their class for a day-long free experience put together by AzIAPT for peer consultation, support, and camaraderie.
