COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY & SOCIAL SKILLS TRAINING (CBSST)

Presented By

Eric L. Granhoml, Ph.D

2 Day Workshop

Registration for Thursday and Friday 7:30 am - 8:00 am

Conference for Thursday and Friday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

CBSST PROGRAM

Improving social recovery and vocational functioning has become an important target of treatment for people with serious mental illness. Building upon two strong and previously validated evidence-based practices, Cognitive Behavioural Social Skills Training (CBSST) combines cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), social skills training (SST) and problem solving skills to target functional impairments.

CBSST is a manualized, but flexible, intervention that teaches cognitive thought challenging skills, behavioural coping strategies, social communication skills, problem-solving, and compensatory aids for neurocognitive impairments. Consisting of 18 to 36 weekly group or individual skills training sessions, CBSST targets the range of multidimensional deficits that can lead to functional disability in people with serious mental illness.

CBSST is guided by a very practical treatment manual that describes each skill and includes at-home practice assignments and detailed therapist guidance to facilitate the learning and daily implementation of the skills.

The primary goal of this workshop is to train clinicians to deliver CBSST intervention tools to systematically help people with serious mental illness with or without comorbid addictions, achieve their personal recovery goals.
