The IUP Center for Creativity and Change recently featured Amy Wenzel, an assistant professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, for its spring 2018 workshop. The one-day seminar, “Innovation in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Suicide Prevention,” was held on April 13 at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex in Indiana.

The event attracted over 60 people, including IUP students and alumni. It was the 33rd workshop offered through the Department of Counseling since 2002, and over 1,900 have attended its trainings since that time.

Wenzel discussed cognitive behavioral therapy from both her academic and clinical work. She is an adjunct faculty member at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and is the author or editor of 20 books and over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.
