Advanced Mentor Training:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; a Primer
w/ Dr. Nan Marquardt
When: February 22, 4:30–5:30pm
Where: Middle School Lecture Hall
In her book, Older and Wiser, Dr. Jean Rhodes writes: “…although rarely acknowledged and not particularly systematic, formal mentors draw on a wide array of established therapeutic techniques. For example, as mentors encourage their mentees to think and act in more adaptive ways, they may draw on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).”
This training by Moab’s Dr. Nan Marquardt will provide a conceptual framework for mentors, acting as paraprofessional mental health supporters for at-risk youth, to think about CBT and how to use some of its principles.
