Innovations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Suicide Prevention
This worksohp will focus on the delivery of Contemporary Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or the delivery of CBT that is influenced by the most up-to-date advances in relevant theory, research, and scholarship, as applied to anxious and suicidal clinical presentations. Beginning with a definition of Contemporary CBT and the advanced application of its components that have relevance to both anxious and suicidal clinical presentations, the workshop will also discuss innovative CBT strategies for anxious clients, with a special focus on the application of the inhibitory learning framework for implementing exposure.

Dr. Wenzel will also include a description of CBT for suicide prevention (Wenzel, Brown, & Beck, 2009), a protocol which has been shown to reduce the rate of suicide re-attempts in half by suicidal clients. We will close with a consideration of contemporary approaches to acceptance, mindfulness, and relapse prevention and their application to anxious and suicidal clinical presentations.
