Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Relapse Prevention Strategies

The purpose of this skill-building review training is to provide participants with an overview of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention (RP) strategies and resources to encourage the use of these interventions in daily clinical practice. Topics include key principles of classical and operant conditioning and modeling; functional analysis and the five “W’s” of a client’s drug use; triggers and craving; drug-refusing skills; the clinician’s role in CBT; and strategies to schedule and construct a 24-hour behavioral plan.

  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.
