Introduction to CBT (2 day)
This introductory two-day workshop is for anyone interested in understanding how cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can re-address the balance between negative thinking to positive well-being.
CBT is currently one of the recommended approaches by NHS NICE guidelines to collaboratively treat disorders such as anxiety and depression, by putting the person and the therapist at the centre of the work.
If you are interested in why CBT is attracting so much attention, and would like to further understand the psychology of cognitive thinking, this two-day workshop will offer the opportunity to further inform your practice regardless of your experience or modality, explore creative interventions in helping a client to formulate treatment rationales, and experience the positive benefits of challenging rigid schemas, when working towards a sense of well-being.

- Develop creative interventions when formulating treatment rationales.
