About the Course:

Both clients and psychotherapists are susceptible to a host of cognitive and motivational biases, distortions, faulty assumptions, irrational beliefs, and unfounded conclusions. As antidotes, Dr. Levy identifies and examines 30 critical thinking principles (Metathoughts), with particular application to the field of psychology. The book provides specific strategies, methods and techniques to improve your critical thinking skills which are essential to virtually every phase of clinical practice, from assessment, diagnosis and treatment, to research evaluation, ethical dilemmas, training and supervision. The ideas in “Tools of Critical Thinking” are vividly brought to life with illustrative examples, clinical anecdotes, case vignettes, contemporary social issues, challenging exercises, and clever satires – - packaged in a form that is engaging, easy to read, and eminently useful.

This course is based on the , Tools of Critical Thinking: Metathoughts for Psychology created by Levy, David A., Ph.D.
