Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviours. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including phobias, depression, addictions and anxiety.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, or CBT, is a well recognised system of training a patient to identify and reconstruct certain negative thought processes which may be affecting their lives.
Our feelings and emotions influence how we deal with every event. Negative emotions can adversely affect any part of our lives. For example a woman who has suffered physical abuse feels she can no longer cope because her self-esteem has become so low. CBT helps her to picture certain situations she faces and to examine the thought processes which convince her she is not equipped with the necessary skills or confidence.
It is an extremely valuable tool which is very highly regarded not only by mental health consumers but also medical providers too. One of the main reasons is it is such a popular therapy, apart from its convincing results, is the fact treatment tends to be over a very short term and focused on a specific problem. This makes it very accessible at a cost which people can afford.
Our CBT training will teach you:
This is a fully certified course which takes the beginner right up to a certified practicing level.
Working in the comfort of your own home you will be expected to complete 200 hours of study. This is separated into modules, each of which has its own sets of questions and evaluations for continuous assessment of your progress.
Students have access to a designated tutor who will mark your work and is available by telephone or email for any further support required.
Your CBT Diploma certificate enables you work as a registered practitioner. Many CBT practitioners see patients face to face whilst others build very successful practices by email, skype or telephone.
The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behaviour. For example, a person who spends a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents and other air disasters may find themselves avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behaviour therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.
"Cognitive and behavioural psychotherapies are a range of therapies based on concepts and principles derived from psychological models of human emotion and behaviour. They include a wide range of treatment approaches for emotional disorders, along a continuum from structured individual psychotherapy to self-help material."
