AbstractPURPOSE: In this study we investigated the effects of training on knowledge acquisition and core competencies in CBT. DESIGN AND METHODS: Forty three students attended 15 half day, weekly sessions and were tested with the Cognitive Therapy Awareness Scale (CTAS) at weeks 1 and 15 in a before and after study. The students case studies were assessed with competencies items 7-12 on the Cognitive Rating Scale – Revised (CTS-R). FINDINGS: Improvements in the CTAS were modest. Key competencies on the CTS-R subscales at week 15 were also observed. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: CBT knowledge acquisition might improve patients’ outcomes through impact on competencies.
