Who can benefit from training in Cognitive Therapy?
Training as a cognitive therapist is beneficial for a wide range of professionals
involved in the mental health field.  Such professionals might include
psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, medical doctors, and graduate
students in these fields.

Training in cognitive therapy will provide these professionals with the ability to
provide efficient, comprehensive, effective therapy that is of lasting benefit for their
patients.  Such training is particularly valuable for psychiatrists, nurses and
medical doctors who do not receive training in psychotherapy in the ordinary
course of their degree studies.

consultation and training for therapists, as well as workshops in locations in North
America and Europe.
