Consultation

Consultation is a very important part of becoming a rostered CPT Provider. As clinicians begin to deliver CPT in their practice, it is inevitable that questions and situations will arise with which clinicians new to CPT will need assistance to navigate. Consultation provides clinicians with support from expert CPT Consultants to get clinical questions answered and receive support and feedback to help ensure that clinicians are confident and competent delivering CPT. There are two types of CPT consultation, including individual and group. Both types of consultation take place weekly via the telephone and each consultation session is led by a CPT Consultant. CPT consultants are licensed mental health clinicians who have trained as a CPT Trainer, and have extensive experience in the delivery CPT. The information below provides an overview of what is included with CPT Consultation and how it is typically structured.
