Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Relapse Prevention Strategies

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has become a mainstay of evidence-based SUD treatment. The purpose of this three hour virtual live training is to provide participants with a detailed overview of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention (RP) strategies, the available resources and encourage use of these strategies in daily clinical practice. The training will be presented in the three parts, covering (1) the underlying principles of CBT and RP, as behavioral interventions used in the treatment of substance use disorders; (2) the specific elements of CBT in including practice with specific interventions (e.g., trigger-thought-craving-use sequence; drug refusal skills; abstinence violation syndrome, etc.); and (3) methods for implementing CBT strategies, including treatment provider role/style in facilitating CBT sessions; using CBT in group and individual sessions; principles of using CBT (e.g., repetition, practice, rationale, scripts, etc.); creating a daily recovery plan; and how to handle relapse. The training will include trainer demonstrations, skill practice, and group discussions.

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. Describe how to utilize these approaches in the treatment of substance use disorders.
4. Define the 5 W’s of a client’s drug use and demonstrate how to conduct a relapse analysis.
5. Identify two common internal triggers and two common external triggers for substance use
6. Demonstrate the use of daily scheduling in developing a targeted, individualized approach to coping skill development.
