Course Description:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness are two methods on the cutting-edge of evidence-based psychotherapy today. Together these techniques are highly-effective in the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders. Even disorders found to be often resistant to treatment, such as substance abuse and personality disorders, are responding to this unique integration of therapeutic skills. With the advent of MRI, researchers have been able to see structural changes in the brain as a result of Mindfulness practice. Other research has demonstrated how combining CBT and Mindfulness significantly reduces relapses.

By attending this one-day seminar you will learn not only the basic techniques in CBT and Mindfulness, but also the application of more advanced methods. This approach is designed both to inform those who are new to this field as well as to provide more advanced clinical options to those already familiar with the basics. The seminar will include PowerPoint slides, case examples and experiential learning.

  1. Explain the most recent research findings that relate to the effectiveness of CBT and mindfulness.
  2. Identify symptoms-specific treatment protocols combining CBT and mindfulness methods.
  3. Explain the three levels of cognition and how this relates to our different mental states.
  4. Combine the seven-column thought record with the four basic strategies of mindfulness training.
  5. Implement treatments that help anxious clients cope with cognitive distortions and habitual maladaptive breathing.
  6. Evaluate progress in therapy and client readiness for more advanced techniques.


Donald F. Sloane, LCSW, director, Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, St. Louis, has over 30 years of clinical experience and has been using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for 25 years. A graduate of Washington University, St. Louis, he was the coordinator of out-patient and in-patient programs at Jewish Hospital’s Behavioral Medicine Center from 1982 to 1987, during which time he specialized in relaxation training, biofeedback and cognitive behavioral treatment of a variety of stress- and pain-related disorders, as well as depression and anxiety disorders. His work with a phobic patient was recognized in Newsweek, May 1986.

In addition, for over 15 years Don taught several courses on Cognitive and Behavior Therapy at the George Warren School of Social Work, Washington University. During the 1990s, Don participated in a half dozen workshops on Cognitive Therapy training under the guidance of Christine Padesky, Ph.D.

Don is also a lay ordained Chan Buddhist teacher. He started meditation practice in 1969 under the mentorship of Ho Kuang-Chung. He also began practicing yoga that same year. In the early 1970s, Don trained in T’ai Chi at the Cheng Man-ch’ing School in New York. He later trained under Al Chung-liang Huang (author of Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain) and founded and directed the T’ai Chi Institute of St. Louis from 1976 to 1983. Later, he studied with a Tibetan Lama from the Kagyu lineage, learning various meditation techniques, particularly Mind Training (Lo Jong). During the past five years, Don has returned to practice meditation from the Chan (Zen) tradition. He has taken lay precepts and vows from the Linji tradition. His article on Karma was published in Right View magazine, Spring, 2007.
