Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the gold standard of psychotherapy because of its proven effectiveness in improving mental health and wellbeing. This course will give you everything you need to understand what CBT is and how to use it.
CBT uses the cognitive model to help us better understand ourselves and make sense of our difficulties and uses a series of cognitive and behavioural strategies to make positive changes in our lives so that we feel better.
We will cover:
What CBT is and how it works
Step-by-step how to do CBT
How the brain works and how we can conceptualise problems and understand ourselves
How thoughts, feelings and behaviours are connected
Understanding intrusive thoughts, worry and rumination
Building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients
We will then look in more detail at how CBT applies to depression, anxiety, social phobia, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia and addiction. We’ll also look beyond CBT as newly emerging CBT-based psychotherapies.
The course comes with a comprehensive handbook as well as downloads and worksheets so that you have all the resources you need to deliver CBT to others or use it yourself. On completing the course, you will earn a certificate accredited by the International Association of Therapists.
