Rapid Recovery From Trauma: New High-Speed TEAM-CBT Treatment Techniques

14.00 CE Hours Available

Dr. Burns will describe how the TEAM-CBT treatment approach can be used with clients dealing with trauma. TEAM refers to Testing, Empathy, Agenda Setting & Method. Based on research on how psychotherapy actually works, it addresses many of the shortcomings in traditional CBT. TEAM-CBT offers rapid, profound, and lasting clinical change. It’s like CBT on steroids.

In this workshop you will learn practical methods you can use right away in your clinical work. Although the focus will be on the treatment of clients who have experienced severe trauma, you will find the techniques will dramatically improve your effectiveness with all your depressed and anxious clients.
