The Northern California Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Network (hereafter referred to as Northern California CBT Network or NCCBT Network) is a group of mental health clinicians, researchers, pre-licensed associates and students based in the San Francisco Bay Area who have an interest in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The principal purposes of the NCCBT Network are:
The Northern California CBT Network is a tax-exempt 501(C)6, unincorporated association formed under the laws of the State of California.
CBT encompasses a variety of empirically supported treatment approaches that are based on common theoretical underpinnings that conceptualize problems as resulting from problematic cognitions and behaviors. Newer CBT approaches focus on changing beliefs about thinking, including beliefs about the over importance of thoughts themselves, and changing responses to emotions, including acceptance of emotions and improving emotion regulation strategies.
Advances in empirically supported treatments are developing at a fast pace, and practitioners face the challenge of keeping up with the latest research and applications of CBT strategies and principles. The NCCBT Network offers local CBT practitioners and researchers a professional home for learning, networking, and communicating about CBT-related topics.
