CBT For Educators (18 Hours)
Up to 6 months to complete
The emotional and psychological health of students today is becoming increasingly complex, taxing teachers and their classrooms. For many educators today, attending to the psychological mindset of the student is playing a larger and larger role, despite the fact that many educators have had no training in how to do so. To assist them, this course is written for both child and adult educators that wish to be able to address these realities with students today. Written for teachers, guidance counsellors, coaches and principals, students of this course will leave supported by two course packs of worksheets (one for child and youth students, and one for adult learners). Educators will leave the course having met the following objectives:
- How to think about students behaviours with the lens of the whole self
- How to set up a dialogue about behaviour and emotion as it pertains to the learning environment
- How to use a specific form of conversation with students so that both insight and motivation are effectively increased
- How to use the worksheets to teach basic but important psychological skills to students
Once payment is received, the student will receive a license key within one week, and can begin course whenever they wish. Each level will require the student to complete a set of 8 modules that will take about 3 hours each. Modules do not have to be done in one sitting, as they are self-directed. The student may progress through the course as quickly or as slowly they wish, though all eight modules must be completed within a maximum of six months. Modules are varied and made up of lectures, viewings, demos, supplemental readings, professional and reflective practice exercises. There are no tests or exams.
Assignments and Textbooks
Assignments are submitted through the online platform. Once all assignments have been submitted, it will take approximately 2-6 weeks to review and return materials. The student will receive their certificate of completion from Adler once this step is complete. Courses will draw from no more than two textbooks per course (texts have been kept under $100 USD per course); students will require these before they begin, and will not be able to complete assignments without them.

Does the course offer any financial aid?
All students will receive a receipt. If you wish, you can also request an issuance of a T-2202 (or Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate), which is an income tax form issued annually that recognizes education-related activity within the tax (calendar) year. It shows the amount of tuition paid that may be claimed for income tax purposes. You must request this specifically from Adler in time to file your annual income tax - it is not issued automatically.
Who is the contact person for the online courses?
Students may contact the Dean of Continuing Education, Ms. Beatrice Traub-Werner, for specific questions:
