A professional training course in Cognitive Behavioural Training (Therapy).
Suitable for new students and existing therapists or coaches who wish to add CBT methods to their professional toolbox.
Includes comprehensive core counselling modules and is designed to enable the graduate to meet the National Occupational Standards for Counselling in relation to counselling work within the context of Cognitive Behavioural Training.
There is empirical evidence that CBT is effective for the treatment of a variety of problems, including mood, anxiety, personality, eating, substance abuse, and psychotic disorders.
Treatment is sometimes manualized, with specific technique-driven brief, direct, and time-limited treatments for specific psychological disorders.
CBT is used in individual therapy as well as group settings, and the techniques are often adapted for self help applications.
Some clinicians and researchers are more cognitive oriented (e.g. cognitive restructuring), while others are more behaviorally oriented (in vivo exposure therapy). Other interventions combine both (e.g. imaginal exposure therapy).
