Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CBI)
Cognitive behavioral intervention teaches learners to examine their own thoughts and emotions, recognize when negative thoughts and emotions are escalating in intensity, and then use strategies to change their thinking and behavior.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about cognitive behavioral intervention (CBI).
- Applying CBI in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The CBI module will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for CBI||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of CBI||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for CBI||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using CBI||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring CBI||25 minutes|
|Applying CBI||10 minutes|
