“An introduction to Behavioral Activation: An easy to learn, highly effective, treatment for depression in Latinx populations”
Join us for this free webinar! This presentation will provide attendees with an overview of Behavioral Activation (BA). Dr. Whited will discuss the empirical and theoretical history of BA, and then provide an overview of the components of this treatment. Participants will walk away with an introductory knowledge of BA and are encouraged to seek out further training beyond the webinar if interested. Opportunities for further training will be discussed.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the empirical and theoretical background for BA.
- Identify the key components of BA treatment.
- Determine if BA would be helpful in your practice and identify key resources to help you begin using BA.
