Increased stress often comes with increased difficulty maintaining our emotional and behavioral health. Access to mental health supports and services, a persistent barrier to recovery from mental health challenges, has become even more pronounced in recent years.
This workshop will provide tools you can use to decrease the negative impact of stressors using the gold standard of mental health treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). These skills will be presented in an easy to learn and effective means to support others and yourself in responding to the current crisis.
Course objectives include:
- Learn at least three CBT skills that can be applied in your work to support the mental health of clients and coworkers, as well as your own.
- Practice using these skills and learn where you can access CBT resources in the future.
- Brainstorm and plan for providing CBT resources to the clients and communities you serve.
