The Psychology Department at The New School for Social Research is seeking an adjunct instructor for the Clinical Theory and Technique: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy course for the Spring 2021 semester. This course involves an introduction to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and instruction on case formulation and specific interventions, with attention to the role of relational and cultural factors in evidence-based treatment. The class will meet weekly for one hour and 50 minutes with a combination of didactic instruction, experiential learning and group supervision using video-recorded therapy sessions through The Safran Center for Psychological Services.
The class is embedded within a team-based approach to learning CBT, complemented by brief CBT supervision delivered by advanced doctoral students, and a separate group supervision on integrating CBT with other modalities in diverse contexts. The instructor will collaborate with advanced doctoral students and other faculty in providing a rigorous and well-rounded introduction to CBT.
This is a one semester commitment from 1/21/21 to 5/11/21. The course time will be either Mondays 4:00-5:50, Tuesdays 2:00-4:50, or Wednesdays 4:00-5:50. The course time/day is somewhat flexible—these times were chosen based on student availability.
