Course Description

ERP is the magic of CBT, and yet many clinicians who say they provide CBT are reluctant to do ERP with their clients.  This session takes the mystery away and makes ERP logical, accessible, and even fun.  Have your doubts that providing ERP is being kind to our clients?  This session will make you a believer.
