CBT is increasingly the therapy of choice for patients/clients consulting with both medical and psychiatric physicians. This short intensive UK-accredited diploma course held online over 4 sessions provides theoretical knowledge, assessment, planning action, intervention and evaluation skills as well as giving participants the opportunity to practice what they have learned.
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Over time, CBT has proved to gain superior results to traditional forms of psychotherapy, obtaining measurable benefits in the short-term as well as lasting success in the long term. It is often described as 'brief' therapy. These recommendations were strongly endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the Mental Health Foundation, and many other organizations dedicated to improving mental health.
CBT has proved successful not only with depression but also with anxiety disorders, OCD, eating disorders, and psychological disorders during pregnancy. CBT has also been found to be effective as a therapeutic approach when used with schizophrenics.
Who can take the course?
It is suitable for those with qualifications or experience in mental health, counseling, therapy, coaching, healthcare, pastoral education, and/or other professions related to health and well-being.
How does Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) help?
CBT is a flexible approach that aims to change maladaptive or rigid ways of thinking and feeling. Negative and/or anxious thought patterns that build over time become a rigid belief system and fail to adapt to change. By identifying these negative or distorted perceptions, the therapist or clinician can evaluate and help to change the way the patient or client is thinking and, ultimately, feeling and behaving.
Because this therapy is tailored to the client’s individual needs and focuses on their negative/anxious thought patterns and processes, they will learn to become more flexible and able to accept and adopt new cognitive skills. CBT, therefore, encourages better coping skills and strategies for the present and the future.
