AHA Calendar of Events – Live on Zoom

NEW Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Certification Course

Presented By: Randy Kasper

Supercharge your hypnotherapy practice and therapeutic depth of expertise by adding Certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to your professional skill set.

Join AOS Professor Randy Kasper, PhD, LCSW, for this comprehensive certification course on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a psychotherapy modality renowned for its strong empirical foundation and effectiveness. This course will provide participants with valuable insights into the world of CBT. It will equip practitioners with the knowledge, tools and practical skills needed to integrate CBT into their therapeutic toolkit. CBT is celebrated as one of the most popular evidence-based therapeutic practices in the field, and this course will empower you to harness its potential.

Uncover the power of Collaborative Empiricism (experience and observation) in therapy, a core concept in CBT. You’ll explore how to collaboratively address issues with clients to avoid the speculative “why” questions and foster a scientific approach to problem-solving. Learn to use Socratic questioning techniques (gentle systematic questioning) to help clients examine the “what,” “where,” “when,” and “how” of their experiences, promoting self-discovery and meaningful change.

Enhance your therapeutic skills and offer evidence-based solutions to your clients.

This Certification Course will include:

  • The science and strategies of CBT
  • The power of Cognitive Restructuring and reshaping automatic thoughts
  • Interconnectedness of thoughts, feelings, and behavior
  • Tools to help clients identify automatic thoughts, understand emotional responses, and develop skills to reshape their habitual cognitive patterns
  • Techniques that cultivate awareness, observation, and regulation
  • Simple CBT techniques and exercises that any practitioner can immediately integrate into their hypnotherapy practice, and use for themselves
  • Worksheets and systems such as the “7-Column Thought Record Sheet”
  • Socratic Questioning to assist clients in considering alternative perspectives
  • Understanding Cognitive Distortions such as catastrophizing, mindreading, and self-blaming, and how to work with and reframe them

You will also receive:

  • A Live on Zoom Q&A with Dr. Randy Kasper, two weeks after the workshop – Sunday, October 29, 2023, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (Pacific Time). This allows you the opportunity for more questions and discussion after you’ve integrated the material.
