- Why Choose CBT?
Dear Academy Members,
Together, we are facing an unprecedented situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, the Academy’s Board of Directors would like to update you on how we’re approaching the situation.
Forefront, our hearts go out to anyone who's been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts are especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.
The Academy is focused on the health and safety of its employees, volunteers, and members. Our employees, Troy and Keri are working from home. This shift has been relatively smooth and we continue to deliver the highest levels of customer service and facilitation of remote training activities. Meantime, consultants, who remain homebound, are employing virtual meeting options to host webinars and group consultation.
These are challenging and uncertain times, but we feel confident that as an organization and community, we can get through this together.
For a list of resources that span our commitment to cognitive and behavioral therapies, please see the links and files listed on this page.
Our best wishes to you and yours during this trying time.
