Format: Self-Study Online Workshop


In the face of so much suffering, you must have been wondering why is it that the most glorified evidence-based practices in psychotherapy have still been failing our patients and clients? The answer to this question is that there are some soft skills and secrets of CBT that are to be mastered by us, clinicians.

In this full day, online workshop, we will be using a clinical case and working with a patient starting from the beginning of CBT. We'll go from mere information or knowledge to learning, from learning to strategic and tactful implementation, from implementation to skills, from skills to mastery, and from mastery to empowerment and leadership.

This 6-CEU full day workshop on CBT is an opportunity for you, clinicians, to have the tools you need to start doing things differently, help your clients end their suffering, and thereby increase the experience of Freedom for our patients and clients.

  3. Mastered the less common skills that make the biggest difference in CBT.

Here's what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

"Great content and presentation. The facilitator did a wonderful job. The facilitator was able to engage us throughout. It was not boring at all. She made it very exciting. I enjoyed it so much that I didn't want it to end. The best webinar/training I've ever attended." - Deepali, LCSW

"Really appreciate having concrete tools to address specific criteria, as well as the scientific information to guide clinical thinking and assessment efforts; the personable and individual address given to us as participants; using real-life examples to illustrate a point, and taking time to explain and answer questions." - Sharon LSCSW

"This training was my first with the SWEET Institute. I received emails for about 2 years before attending. Part of it was because I am not always easily sold. The other is that I am very committed to work and hardly take time off, especially since we are terribly understaffed. I am so glad I did, however. The full day training was so worth it. I feel like I am going back to the clinic with a bag of goodies!" - Sonia, LCSW

"CBT is so useful in a variety of settings, thereby essential for social workers to hone skills and increase their ability to assist others. So informative, loved examples and group participation." - Chelsea, LCSW

"This was an extremely practical seminar. I will utilize this information in my practice! Step by step review of the process leading to the patient's positive mental health. Having been out of the field for a number of years, this CBT course was what I needed to gain the knowledge to work with my clients to make a positive change in their lives. The presentation of the material was easy to follow. Each session provided the building blocks needed for the next session." - Leanne, LMSW
