About the Event
Cognitive Behavior Institute is excited to welcome William C Sanderson, PhD, for a live interactive webinar on: CBT for Anxiety Disorders: Essential Skills
Time: 9:00am-12:00pm EST
Credit Hours: 3 Clinical CEs
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most empirically supported pyschotherapeutic treatment for anxiety disorders (i.e. generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, specific phobias). While there are specific treatment protocols for each of these disorders, in fact, there are several core interventions that are common across all treatments (e.g. various cognitive reappraisal and exposure therapy strategies) (Barlow et al., 2011; Farchione et al., 2012). The primary focus of this presentation will be to focus on training participants in the core common interventions used to treat individuals with anxiety disorders (e.g. Abromowitz & Blakey, 2020) followed by a discussion of how to utilize those strategies with consideration given to the unique cognitive and behavioral psychopathology for each disorder

The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) has a process for approving individual programs or providers for continuing education through their Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. ACE approved providers and individual courses approved by ASWB are not accepted by every state and regulatory board for continuing education credits for social workers. Every US state other than New York accepts ACE approval for social workers in some capacity: New Jersey only accepts individually approved courses for social workers, rather than courses from approved providers. The West Virginia board requires board approval for live courses, but accepts ASWB ACE approval for other courses for social workers.

Whether or not boards accept ASWB ACE approved continuing education for other professionals such as licensed professional counselors or licensed marriage and family therapists varies by jurisdiction.
