Developing a digital training resource for clinicians learning CBT for psychosis (CBTpro)

Project Type(s):

Principal Investigator(s):


The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Training Study will rigorously test CBTpro — a novel tool that uses spoken language technologies and conversational Artificial Intelligence to train behavioral health practitioners in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We conducted a 2-week field trial, followed by a Randomized Clinical Trail in community mental health agencies to evaluate both learner and client outcomes. The study aims to expand global access to CBT training to students and practitioners, support quality psychological treatments for clients with a range of behavioral health disorders (including Serious Mental Illness), and support ongoing clinical quality assurance in routine care settings.
