CBT Consultation Group

This is a case consultation group for those therapists who already have some familiarity with CBT and are interested in getting case consultation in integrating these strategies into their clinical practice. In addition to getting direct consultation on their own cases, the group provides an opportunity for the therapist to see how others apply CBT to their cases. The group has 3-5 therapist members and lasts for 1.5-2 hours. We hold several groups each month and they most typically meet on Friday mornings, although times may vary. Individual consultation is also available. For more information and to enroll, please contact George H. Davis, Ph.D. (203) 787-3070.
