Since 2003, The Cordier Institute’s New England Center for CBT treatment and the American Center for I- CBT Training, has provided interpersonal- cognitive – behavioral therapy (I- CBT) a unique and highly effective method of delivery that has helped thousands of people overcome a variety of different mental health challenges. The I- CBT method is patient centered and is tailored to each individual’s treatment goals.
Patients learn through a a step by step process how to manage their thoughts, feelings and actions. Treatment is based on the therapeutic relationship, behavioral modification, evidence based methods, a self help workbook and videos designed to be used in conjunction with therapy to support learning and treatment goals. Testing tools are also incorporated to track and manage symptoms throughout the treatment process. When family is available to support, interventions can also be taught to family members involved in their loved ones recovery.
Patients are “graduated” from the program after successfully completing all of the I-CBT modules and present with 4- weeks of consecutive scoring where treatment scores have improvement of 50% or more from the starting baseline of treatment. Treatment for most patients, on average, takes 5-6 months depending on the patient’s pace, incorporation and understanding of the skills provided.
