Professional Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Go Back


Begins with an introduction to the application of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), followed by a specific focus on its use in treatment for depression and anxiety.

A highly interactive and practical course and all participants will be given time to explore and implement the skills taught.

Includes consideration of various pitfalls or difficulties in this work and a look at cases we find “difficult to treat” or “complex".

Key features:

  • The first weekend will be a thorough introduction to and critical exploration of CBT. This will include looking at the key therapeutic principles underlying CBT, the application of CBT with clients and an exploration into the ‘Socratic Method’ (a cornerstone technique within CBT). We will also consider why CBT has become more popular in recent years, when and how should it be used and when its use is contraindicated.
  • The second weekend will look at how to apply these underlying principles in greater depth with a specific focus upon how to treat clients who present with symptoms of depression. Key ideas in the treatment of depression such as behavioural activation and cognitive reframing will be explored. Various techniques and skills for treatment will be demonstrated. More advanced CBT concepts such as ‘Core Beliefs’ and ‘Intermediate Beliefs’ will be explored.
  • The final weekend will continue to build upon the prior 2 weekends learning and will focus on the use of CBT for various anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc. We will explore the key differences between these different types of anxiety and discuss the ways in which CBT can be applied accordingly.
