How Will I Learn It? 

We specialize in online learning in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for mental (and physical) health professionals.  We realize that educating professionals in CBT significantly expands the health and wellness resources available to healthcare clients.

You will work in small collaborative groups within a larger class. In fact, you can register with a group of 6-8 peers and expect to complete the entire program with that same group. Alternately, you can register individually and work with people from across the country and beyond. Your collaborative learning groups will facilitate the development of critical thinking skills, the co-creation of knowledge, meaning, reflection, and transformative learning. Reciprocal scaffolding (Holton and Thomas, 2006) is utilized where collaboratively working groups are provided with opportunities to learn from the experiences and knowledge of each other.

This online program consists of weekly video lectures, weekly discussion, frequent electronic quizzes to keep you on-track, group Case Studies, and meetings with your facilitator via  Skype/Adobe Connect.
