Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Relapse Prevention Strategies

Pacific Southwest ATTC

06/19/2018

Educational Event: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Substance Use Disorders (SUD) was initially directed toward preventing relapse to problematic drinking, and was later adapted for use with cocaine-dependent individuals. Since then it has become a mainstay of evidence-based SUD treatment. CBT for substance use disorders has demonstrated efficacy by itself and as part of combination treatment strategies. At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to: 1. Discuss key principles of classical and operant conditioning, social learning theory, and behavioral modeling 2. Describe how these key principles form the foundation of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention (RP) 3. Define drug refusal skills, abstinence violation syndrome, and cognitive reframing. Then discuss how these critical concepts can be incorporated into individual and group CBT sessions 4. Define the “5 W’s” of a client’s drug use and demonstrate how to conduct a relapse analysis
