Only 36 spots available: First-come, first-served! 

A $1,495 course at no cost to members.

Learn to integrate dozens of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) tools into routine appointments with patients to make your work easier.

CBT Tools is a two-day, online course that will equip you with 52 tools to change patients' unhealthy beliefs and increase compliance. You will see step-by-step demonstrations of how to incorporate each tool into a routine 10-minute medical appointment. Presenter Dr. Greg Dubord and associates will explain key features and coach you as you practice with other participants in Zoom breakout rooms.

This nine-hour workshop has been certified for three-credits-per-hour by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for 27 Mainpro+ credits. The 3:1 credit-per-hour ratio adds extra value, letting you earn credits three times as fast as one-credit-per-hour CMEs.

The workshop emphasizes practical assessment tools, compliance enhancers, and change-oriented charting. The focus is on strategic interventions integrated into routine appointments.

About one-third of primary care appointments are primarily psychiatric, and most others can benefit from some psychology to optimize outcomes. Participate in this workshop, and you will learn CBT techniques to make your work with patients easier.

Learning objectives:

  • Discover the incredible utility of persuasion tools in medicine
  • Gain comfort with the most versatile tools for your practice
  • Implement the appropriate tool(s) in a given situation
  • Use newly acquired tools under direct supervision
  • Formulate more effective ways to motivate patients
  • Recognize and address "empathy addiction"
  • Learn more effective ways to get the patient “on side”
