Cue-Centered Therapy

Sequenced Educational Program

We have created a sequenced educational program that blends theory, practice, and application to prepare mental health professionals to integrate CCT in their own practice. CCT’s trainers offer open enrollment courses for individual or small group sign-ups. We also tailor programs for agencies wishing to create a customized group experience for their team. The live courses are offered over Zoom.
