PBTA is pleased to co-sponsor Continuing Education programs with partners throughout the Philadelphia area:
CTSA offers intensive instruction on the use of Prolonged Exposure (PE) for PTSD and Exposure and Response Prevention (EX/RP) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. These workshops typically occur annually.
The Children's and Adult Center for OCD & Anxiety is a group of 6 private practice psychologists with training and expertise in state of the art cognitive-behavior therapy for the full array of anxiety disorders and OCD for children and teenagers, as well as for adults. We provide professional training workshops in these treatment approaches locally, nationally and internationally, as well as consultation to schools and institutions. In addition, we offer parent workshops and trainings in person and online. See www.worrywisekids.org for more info.
META Center offers continuing education for professionals who want to integrate mindfulness into traditional CBT interventions in order to enhance both personal well-being and professional effectiveness in work with highly distressed clients.
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy (TBCT) is a three-level, three-phase, case formulation approach, developed by Professor Irismar Reis de Oliveira at Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. TBCT's foundation is in cognitive therapy (CT); however, it has a unique approach to conceptualization and techniques that make it a distinct intervention in modifying patients' core beliefs, especially those about the self.
The Philadelphia Behavior Therapy Association is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Philadelphia Behavior Therapy Association maintains responsibility for all programs and their content.
