The CBT Research and Training Clinic is committed to providing the best low cost mental health care services available to adolescents and adults living in the Bloomington area, including faculty, staff, and students at Indiana University. To accomplish this goal, we use empirically supported interventions to design, implement, and evaluate our assessment and intervention procedures. Empirically supported treatments are practices and strategies that are supported by research-based medical and scientific evidence. All of our services are informed by scientific research.
We specialize in a particular form of psychotherapy called Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in numerous clinical trials for many different disorders, including treatment for depression and anxiety. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT is typically brief (or time-limited), focused on the present, oriented towards problem-solving, and focused on building skills that can be used for the rest of client’s lives.
