Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Course Description

In-House Certification

4-6 hours


CBT is a highly successful therapy that is continually increasing in its effectiveness. It is a hands on, short term, goal orientated psychotherapeutic intervention that focuses on the process of changing negative thought patterns that provide the basis of an individual’s problems.

It is based on the notion that the way we perceive the world influences how we feel emotionally. It is people’s thoughts about a situation that affects how we feel, not the actual situation and that these feelings then affect the way a person behaves. By altering thinking patterns, behaviour change is activated.

This course explores the key principles of CBT and teaches delegates about its use and methods of application which can be used by the individual to address their own patterns of thinking and behaviour or to help support and address the issues of another.
