This introductory workshop is for anyone with an interest in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is currently recommended by NHS NICE Guidelines as the therapeutic treatment of choice for anxiety disorders and depression. If you are wondering why CBT is attracting so much attention, this two-day workshop is an opportunity to find out.
This workshop places CBT within a person-centered, humanistic perspective. We will look at the essentials of Cognitive and Behavioural theories, together with some of the key processes that maintain anxiety and depression. We will explore some practical ways you can help clients move towards well-being. CBT is a transparent, collaborative therapy and we will look at visually mapping-out problems and using creative ways to help client’s understand treatment rationales.
Whatever therapeutic modality you come from, CBT ideas can augment your practice and provide insights into typical ways that people can become trapped in a vicious cycle of anxiety and despair.?
