Application Information for the Cognitive Therapy Training Program

Requirements

To apply for the Therapy Training Program, submit a personal letter of interest in the program, an application form (see link below), a curriculum vita, one letter of recommendation (sent via the U.S. Postal Service, not via e-mail), a photocopy of professional license (if applicable), and a 50-minute audio or video recording of your clinical work with a patient. The recording can be a session with an actual patient or a role-played session. If the recording involves an actual patient, do not identify him or her by name, and obtain signed consent from the patient to submit the recording. We will evaluate the applicant for general therapy skills, not necessarily proficiency in Cognitive Therapy.

To apply for the Diagnostic Interview Training Program, submit a personal letter of interest in the program, an application form (see link below), a curriculum vita, one letter of recommendation (sent via the U.S. Postal Service, not via e-mail), a photocopy of professional license (if applicable), and a sample assessment report with a five AXIS diagnosis (please omit or obscure identifying patient information).
