CBT for Teens

CBT for Teens is a workshop being offered by a group in New York City.  I just signed up  at the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy.  Workshop will be lead by Dr. Laura Reigada, and focus on Cognitive Behavioral skills when working with children and their parents.  I look forward to learning new skills and insight into parent-child relationships.
