If you have adolescent clients that you feel could benefit from learning cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, this course is for you. Because many mental disorders manifest during adolescence, it is important to provide effective therapy in a way that younger clients will find helpful. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be used to treat clients of all ages. In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Adaptations for Adolescents, you will learn how to develop a rapport with your younger client, appropriately include their parents or guardians in the treatment process, navigate issues of confidentiality, and analyze the developmental factors that affect your client.

NOTE: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Foundations—A Skills-Based Approach is a prerequisite for this course. You will not receive credit for this course unless you have first completed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Foundations.
