The CBT Research and Training Clinic is committed to providing the best, low cost mental health care services available to adolescents and adults living in the Bloomington area, including faculty, staff, and students at Indiana University. To accomplish this goal, we use empirically-supported interventions when designing, implementing, and evaluating our assessment and intervention procedures. The term “empirically-supported” means that we use interventions and strategies that have been found to be effective in the research literature. All of our services are informed by scientific research, whenever possible.

We specialize in a particular form of psychotherapy called Cognitive Behavior Therapy. What is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)? CBT is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in numerous clinical trials for many different disorders. In particular, CBT has been found to be effective in treating depression and anxiety. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT is typically brief (or time-limited), focused on the present, problem-solving oriented and focused on building skills that can be used for the rest of client’s lives.
