CBT introduction - tools and strategies
Date: 24 May 2018
THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
IT WILL BE RUNNING NEXT YEAR - DATE TBC.
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) reveals the role that thoughts play in relation to both our emotions and our behaviours. This approach focuses on the role that thoughts play in regard to both emotions and behaviour, and advocates that change in thought processes can have a significant effect upon altering behaviours. Unlike many of the talking treatments that traditional therapists have used, CBT focuses upon the ‘here and now’, as well as ways to improve the individual state of mind in the present time. This is innovative in the sense that there is no focus on the causes of distress or past symptoms as there evidently is with traditional psychotherapy.
In this 1 day course, participants will be introduced to key tools and strategies from CBT and provided with opportunities to practice and apply these both to case studies and real life examples. We will focus on the following key elements:
- Restructuring thought processes
- ABC (the CBT approach breaks a particular problem into three smaller parts: the activating event, negative beliefs, the consequences)
- Core beliefs
In this one day seminar Dr Tina Rae will endeavour to meet the following objectives with delegates:
- To review the history of CBT
- To outline the theory and principles understanding the cognitive model
- To apply the cognitive model
- To consider rationale, process and key considerations when setting CBT homework tasks
- To enable participants to practice key tools and strategies
- To take away a set of resources and tools for use in the school/support context.
