Cognitive-Behavioral techniques are among the most widely recognized methods of dealing with symptoms of depression, anxiety, chronic and acute stress as well as navigating through adverse life circumstances. These techniques are highly effective and can be learned by children, teens and adults to be deployed in daily life. Applied Improvisation is a hands-on, experiential way to learn about and apply these techniques that engage both thoughts and feelings in a creative way. Through this workshop, clinicians can develop an understanding of the principles that drive cognitive-behavioral therapy and learn exercises through which clients can try out and practice them. We will use direct experience and lively discussion to explore the theory and application of these techniques.
