Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a versatile therapeutic approach that can be utilized to treat various emotional disorders. Therefore, the effectiveness of CBT is conceptualized through a thorough examination of present literature and its use in treating various emotional disorders in adolescents. Literature reviewed includes meta-analyses, journals and articles. CBT proved to be a commonly used therapeutic approach, and demonstrated adaptability when necessary. A wide array of benefits from using CBT to treat emotional disorders were displayed across multiple sources. The training presented in this project will address the use of CBT adaptations for adolescent clients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and co-occurring mental health disorders. The objective of this training will result in the education of mental health counselors on treatment adaptations and approaches, and effective implementation.
