Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for a broad range of psychiatric disorders. In this workshop, we will discuss the scientific evidence base for CBT principles, and demonstrate the artful application of these principles for patients with mood, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, personality, and other disorders. Both didactic presentation and video vignettes will be used to illustrate how CBT can be applied to your clients. In this workshop participants will learn to:

1. Describe behavioral, cognitive, and emotional factors that contribute to the maintenance of psychological disorders
2. Discuss how to engage clients using collaborative empiricism and motivational enhancement strategies
3. Conduct a collaborative case conceptualization with clients
4. Use cognitive restructuring strategies to address maladaptive interpretations and core beliefs
5. Use behavioral strategies such as exposure, activity scheduling, and skill training
6. Employ arousal-reduction strategies such as relaxation
7. Discuss the use of mindfulness and acceptance as alternatives to control-based strategies
