Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: 4-Day Workshop
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a structured therapeutic approach that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs are related to emotions and behaviours. In this type of therapy, the client and therapist use a collaborative approach to identify both thoughts and behaviours that may be standing in the way of the client’s mental health functioning. CBT has been shown to be effective for a wide array of mental health difficulties, including: depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, eating disorders, substance abuse, and various medical conditions.
This CBT course will provide participants with core CBT skills with a specific focus on both depression and anxiety disorders. Information will be presented in lecture format, with the supplemental use of role-play between participants, and video demonstration. Participants are encouraged to bring in an anonymous case summary for discussion. Ample time will be provided to review challenging cases and discuss helpful cognitive and behavioural solutions as a group.
