Principles and Practice of CBT-I (Basic Course)

At present, the Basic Course is offered “on-site” (at local venues vs. at Penn). To date the course has been hosted by State Societies, Local Hospitals/HMOs, and National and International Health systems. It has been the case, and we hope this continues to be so, that local courses are also opened to the public.

Dr. Posner will be conducting a workshop on "CBT-I": Conceptualization, Treatment Planning and Intervention at the Tennessee Psychological Association's 2018 Convention: #Trending Upgrading Practice, Integrating Technology, Upholding Standards. Please see below for more information.
