The Montana State University Human Development Clinic and the Gallatin Mental Health Center will host a workshop, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults, on Friday, Sept. 5, and Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman. All mental health providers, school counselors and students are welcome to register to attend.

The workshop will focus on conceptualizing a client according to the cognitive model, planning treatment and interventions, using strategies to identify and modify inaccurate or unhelpful cognitions and other related topics.

Torrey Creed, a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in cognitive behavioral therapy with children, adolescents and their families, will be the workshop’s featured presenter. Creed is an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Aaron T. Beck Psychopathology Research Center, where she directs the Beck Initiative, a program to train community clinicians to deliver cognitive behavioral therapy for a wide range of populations and public health concerns.

Early registration is available on or before Sept. 1 and is $300 for individual professionals and $150 for students enrolled in an accredited training program for mental health practitioners. After Sept. 1, a $25 late fee applies.
