I am in the planning stage of a new post-graduate (MA) course in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Children and Adolescents. In a psychodynamic dominated academic landscape this will be the first obligatory post-graduate course in the cognitive-behavioral field in Israel.
If anyone who particpates in this forum has some good, useful ideas (examples of curriculum, textbooks, etc) that could help me developing the ' ideal' course, I would be very happy. Working in a context where psychodynamic models are still the ' lingua franca' it is very important to avoid at all costs the wrong impression that CBT is simple-minded, superficial, mechanistic and all the other biases and prejudices I have to fight against on a day to day basis. The University course I now have been asked to prepare will give me the opportunity to introduce the subject as a legitimate and important contribution to the field of psychotherapy here in Israel.
Thanks for ideas or suggestions.
