CBT+ Learning Collaborative

CBT + Learning Collaborative Training and Consultation


CBT+ uses generic versions of evidence-based models that address over 80% of the behavioral health conditions for which youth seek care in Washington State. These conditions include anxiety, depression, trauma-focused anxiety (or posttraumatic stress) and behavioral problems. Each year, we train 250+ clinicians (Masters and Bachelor level) and supervisors from community mental health organizations all over the State of Washington. We also offer advanced yearly trainings for providers, bringing in speakers on topics such as CBT for trauma with Black youth, CBT for LGBTQIA+ youth

Training Components

  • Part I: Initial 3-hour asynchronous training followed up by four live online learning sessions.
    Participation is open to mental health providers who provide ongoing mental health treatment to children and youth from 4 years to age 21 in the state of Washington.
  • Part II: Follow-up Clinical Consultation Sessions.
    One hour group consultation calls over a period of 6 months, calls occur twice a month for the first 4 months and once a month for the last two months.
