A 9-Week Training Course for OCD Specialists

I teach a 9-week training course for therapists on Inference-based Therapy (IBT or I-CBT), an evidence-based treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder that doesn't require clients to do exposures and instead focuses on their thought process and self-doubt. While there is a clinician's manual on I-CBT available and great trainers who teach the manual, I created an original curriculum that moves beyond the manual to meet the needs of a range of learning styles. I do this so that YOU as a learner can understand the material in the way that makes the most sense! I also do this so that you get the tools you need to explain this material to CLIENTS in the ways that make the most sense to them. Being a good I-CBT therapist means being a good teacher which means that we as therapists have to be able to explain things in a variety of ways. What clicks with one client will fall flat with another so the plethora of original visuals, metaphors, videos, articles, examples, and exercises you will receive in my class will be priceless. I value being neurodivergent-friendly in the way that I teach and in the materials I provide.  


Regardless of whether you're someone who has already read the manual and taken other trainings or someone whose only knowledge of I-CBT is that it exists, you will find the course beneficial. This is because my goal isn't to translate the manual but to teach you the concepts. The benefit of this approach is that you learn how to use I-CBT with flexibility based on what each particular client needs rather than being bound by a specific order of treatment. Both seasoned I-CBT practitioners and those just beginning their journey tell me this course gave them a clarity and depth of understanding they wouldn't have found anywhere else.

"Truly one of the best learning experiences I have ever had."

"Taking Kate Goldhouse's I-CBT training was a great investment in my professional development. Before I took her training I had spent months on self-study yet did not feel confident enough in my abilities with I-CBT to join in conversations with colleagues or work with clients. Her training was both fun and immediately useable in my practice and has given me the foundation to continue to grow in my understanding of I-CBT. I highly recommend this training!"
