This session serves as a good introduction to the basics of CBT, how and when it was developed and by whom. The session goes on to draw the link between what we think and how we feel.
In this lecture, we look at the fictitious example of Fiona, to see how use of the ABCD form helps us (and the client) to see the link between thoughts and feelings. This is a crucial step in the process of begining to explore how helpful and constructive our thoughts are, prior to replacing them
A well known and often used technique in CBT is where we help clients to explore the advantages and disadvantages of a particular way of thinking or behaving. This helps us (or the client) to make informed decisions and change the way they think or behave, in accordance with the most beneficial outcomes.
This session looks at 2 of the most common mental health issues (anxiety and depression) from a CBT perspective. Specifically we look at some of the common thoughts that people tend to have when they are either anxious or depressed, along with some of the common behavioral strategies that they employ, which often serve to worsen the problem. The session also includes a sound file that gives an overview of what one would expect to be covered in the first CBT session.
The successful ending of the ending to the therapeutic relationship is a crucial part of the whole process. This session looks at how we prepare the client for this ending, make plans for any possible future need for intervention or support and identify how the client can take the process forward independently.
This session encourages the student to begin using CBT techniques for their own development and problem solving. This is an important aspect of learning about the CBT approach and becoming familiar with exactly how it works at a basic level. be sure to read the recomended reading, including 'The Little Book fo Thinking Errors' an excellent read!
