Special Events

 

DVD Lecture Series: Cognitive Beharvrioal Therapy: Techniques for Retraining Your Brain  


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a well-tested collection of techniques for managing moods and modifying undesirable behaviors through self-awareness, critical analysis, and taking steps toward gradual, goal-oriented change. CBT illuminates the links between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health and uses those connections to develop plans for self-improvement. In this DVD lecture series, Dr. Satterfield will discuss CBT in theory and in practice, through an in-depth discussion of techniques and therapy sessions. He will review setting goals, the importance of setting those goals, how to formulate a plan to achieve those goals and common concerns that CBT can help you address.  

Date: Mondays

Time: 1:00 p.m.
