    (1)Treating Eating Disorders:  A Cognitive-Behavioral Approach 
         Webinar Recording (Computer Video CD and Manual)

    Eating disorders are among the most misunderstood problems in the mental health field. They appear particularly complicated and difficult to “treat”. Confronted with an “inaccurate body image”, many therapists wonder how they will be able to help the client have an accurate perception of their body when they look in the mirror. However, when approached from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, the therapist realizes that these disorders are not as 
    complicated as they seemed, and that helping the client overcome them just requires work. This webinar will address Anorexia, Bulimia, Compulsive Overeating.

    (3) Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: The Basics of Helping People Get Better

    5 CDs.


    Why Learn Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

    Today, the mental health field is focused on Evidence-Based and short-term counseling and psychotherapy for several reasons.  First, clinicians and treatment centers need to practice an approach that is supported by psychotherapy outcome research. 

    In other words, the approach must work. Secondly, in today's  managed care environment, clinicians often are limited in terms of the number of sessions they have to help their clients.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has always been the ideal research-supported, short-term therapy, even before it was popular to practice such an approach! The very instructive nature of CBT produces long-term results because it teaches clients rational self-counseling that they can apply not only to their current concerns, but to anything that might come their way. CBT also emphasizes getting better, rather than feeling better. When CBT clients are "better," they understand exactly why.

    This seminar will teach you the basics of a very systematic approach to cognitive-behavioral therapy. The systematic approach helps the therapist know where he or she is in the therapeutic process at any given point. Because many approaches to CBT are not particularly systematic, the systematic nature of the CBT approach presented in this seminar is very comforting and reassuring to both novice and experienced CBT therapists.
