Title:  Stuck Points in CBT Training in Community Mental Health

Audience Level:  Intermediate

Presenter and Affiliation: Lynn McFarr, PhD


Given the preponderance of evidence supporting the efficacy of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), there has been an increased emphasis on dissemination to community mental health systems (CMH).This webinar will focus on the challenges for implementation of CBT with community mental health clinicians with respect to support, assistance, and resources CMH clinicians need as they continue to build CBT competency. Common stuck points in training will be discussed. Several basic strategies identified by trainers to be commonly used during consultation (adherence to structure, behavioral rehearsals, practice sample review, and case consultation) will be reviewed.  Additionally, difficulties in implementing the most effective strategies including experiential learning, practice sample review, and case conceptualization will be discussed. Finally, the relation between implementation models that add case consultation and treatment adherence and intervention skill across CMH clinicians will be highlighted. 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe 3 challenges to CBT implementation in CMH
  2. Identify 4 basic strategies for CBT trainers in CMH
  3. Identify 3 advanced strategies for consultation with CMH clinicians
