Participants will learn to observe, assess, evaluate, and formulate a treatment using the client’s environmental influencers as well as their thoughts, moods, emotions and behaviour. The approaches presented are usable, up-to-date and strongly evidence-based.
To help professionals (with therapeutic experience) who want to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) into their practice.
The initial two days of the Professional Certificate include an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of the CBT approach. Day 3 is designed to introduce the key diagnostic symptoms of anxiety to you, and the role of its physiological characteristics will be explored. Particular focus is given to disorder-specific models for panic and social phobia. Day 4 focuses on Major Depressive Episode, symptoms, diagnosis and maintenance factors. Students are taught the importance of the use of pacing, goal setting and choice of intervention with depressed clients. Day 5, the Integration Day takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, where participants are given the opportunity to outline and describe how they have integrated the learning from the four core workshops and applied it to their practice. Participants will be expected to submit relevant documentation supporting the evidence of 20 hours of client work and 3 hours of supervision on the day.
