Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This is a manualized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy group psycho-educational and depression management skills training program with group process. The program has 4 modules, with 4 lessons in each module. There is minimal homework for the clients to complete. This can be an adjunct to individual psychotherapy and/or as a step-down from a higher level of care.

The Modules

  • Thoughts: Learn to identify your thinking patterns and change the way you think.
  • Activities: Learn relaxation skills, ways to increase pleasant activities, and how to set meaningful and achievable goals.
  • Interpersonal Skills: Learn to identify strategies that work to improve your relationships with others, assertiveness skills, and how you handle conflict.
  • Depression and Health: Learn how sleep, diet, and exercise affect depression and your overall health.

Depression Management

Groups meet weekly at the Woodland Centers offices in Willmar or Litchfield. Each Module takes 4 meetings, so completion of all four modules takes about 4 months.

To participate in the training, you do not have to be involved with individual therapy or be taking medication but it is all right if you are.
