Dr. Wenzel will focus on the delivery of Contemporary Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or the delivery of CBT that is influenced by the most up-to-date advances in relevant theory, research, and scholarship, as applied to two anxious and suicidal clinical presentations.

Dr. Wenzel will open with a definition of Contemporary CBT and the advanced application of its components that have relevance to both anxious and suicidal clinical presentations. Next, she will discuss innovative CBT strategies for anxious clients, with a special focus on the application of the inhibitory learning framework for implementing exposure. Dr. Wenzel will also include a description of CBT for suicide prevention (Wenzel, Brown, & Beck, 2009), a protocol which has been shown to reduce the rate of suicide re-attempts in half in suicidal clients.

Finally, we will close with a consideration of contemporary approaches to acceptance, mindfulness, and relapse prevention and their application to anxious and suicidal clinical presentations.
