   CSL 3530 - Cognitive Behavior Therapy

1.0 Credits
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that has gained widespread application in the treatment of behavioral health disorders. Several important features of CBT make it particularly promising as a treatment for substance abuse and dependence. CBT has been extensively researched and has solid empirical support as an evidence-based treatment for addictions. CBT is structured, goal-oriented, and focused on the immediate problems faced by individuals with substance use disorders entering treatment who are struggling to control their substance use. It is a flexible, individualized approach that can be adapted to a wide range of clients and a wide range of treatment settings and formats. CBT works well with individuals as well as group therapy. This class also seeks to enhance the ability of students to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic and socioeconomic diversity.
