CBT has become the dominant psychotherapeutic model within the U.S. Because it was developed in reaction to psychoanalysis, the two are often placed in stark opposition. In this course we explore how each of these approaches can enhance the other. The course provides a brief overview of core concepts from both traditional and contemporary mindfulness-based CBT approaches. A variety of CBT treatment methods including the classic techniques of cognitive restructuring and exposure, and newer techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) will be taught. Students will learn approaches to working with panic disorder and obsessional/ruminative problems, as well as how the techniques used can be employed to treat a variety of problems. Throughout the course we will think about how CBT approaches both converge with and diverge from psychoanalytic approaches, the rationale for choosing CBT techniques within an analytic treatment, and how to develop a fluid approach to incorporating both modalities in one treatment.

Classes will include didactic presentation of theory and techniques and discussion of case material drawn from the practices of the instructor and students. Active learning will be facilitated by demonstrations of techniques and opportunities for in-class practice. Readings will include texts by leading CBT practitioners, analytic practitioners who integrate CBT, and some psychoanalytic texts that provide a theoretical framework for integrating CBT into psychoanalytic work.

This course can be taken as a stand-alone course, or as a required part of NIP’s Certificate Program in Psychotherapy Integration. The course will be taught at NIP in eight seminar-style classes, each lasting one hour and fifty minutes. Class meetings are held on Mondays, January 7, 14, 28, February 4, 11, 24, March 4, 11, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:50 pm. Students will be charged $600.

Learning Objectives

The learning objectives include:

  1. Understand the basic tenets of CBT and how they agree with and differ from the tenets of psychoanalysis.

  2. Learn a variety of CBT techniques, including cognitive reappraisal, exposure, and mindfulness practices.

  3. Develop skill in identifying when and how to integrate CBT techniques into psychoanalytic practice.


Jill Bresler, Ph.D. is Co-Director of the Psychotherapy Integration Program at NIP. She is on the faculty of the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, where she did her psychoanalytic training. Dr. Bresler is a past Fellow of the Institute for Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy, and has extensive training in multiple CBT approaches.

Developing a Treatment Group for Survivors of Sexual Abuse: Critical Considerations in the Age of #metoo

The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
250 West 57th Street, Suite 501
New York, NY 10107

Most trauma therapists recognize three stages of treatment for survivors of sexual abuse: 1) Establishing safety and stabilization, 2) Exploring and healing traumatic experiences through memory, affect, bodily sensations, and cognitions, and 3) Reconnecting with others.  Because interpersonal trauma disrupts attachment and social relatedness, and creates a sense of isolation, the final stage is a critical component of treatment.  This presentation describes the development of a therapy group in a private practice to foster a relational context for healing, at the same time that #metoo testimonies were beginning to emerge.  The Trauma Recovery Group model, which emphasizes personal empowerment, provided each person with an opportunity to share her trauma and bring a personal trauma-related goal into fruition through the exquisite support of the group.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Be able to name the three stages of trauma treatment

  2. Learn how to develop a therapy group within one's private practice

  3. Describe the process of running a Trauma Recovery Group for survivors of sexual abuse

National Institute for the Psychotherapies and Big Oak Psychotherapy Training Institute are co-sponsoring a Winter 2019 EMDRIA*-approved EMDR Basic Training and consultation for the integration of this highly effective approach into clinical practice. As an EMDR Institute Regional Basic Trainer, Dr. Karen Alter-Reid uses the EMDR Institute curriculum to provide clinicians with the knowledge and skills to use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy with a broad range of clients and clinical presentations. Trainings are provided in small groups of 24 or fewer. The training is a six day, two-weekend program, plus two 2-hour consultation groups, extended over six weeks. Training includes the traditional Weekends 1 and 2, as well as all ten required hours of consultation. Extending the training format helps participants integrate the lecture material, conceptualize where to begin with specific clients and incorporate the standardized protocol into their practice. Each of the two weekends will include lecture, consultation, and experiential components.

This course is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a private practice or other clinical setting.  Participants must have an active psychotherapy caseload so that they can begin to integrate and utilize EMDR therapy in their practices during the six-week training period.
