Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

If your practice includes patients who have complex mental health conditions, it’s important to have knowledge and skills in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

These online CBT courses are easy to use and give you access to high-quality education led by clinical experts.  They include live weekly chats with course faculty and interactive discussion boards that let you share ideas and post questions. The course schedules are fully on-demand so you have the flexibility to complete assignments whenever your practice schedule allows.



Our course topics are complementary and each one takes place several times during the year. We recommend taking several courses so you have a well-rounded knowledge of using CBT.

In order to claim credit, you must complete all modules within one week after the course ends. This includes post-tests and evaluations.
