Course Introduction

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective for people with a wide range of mental health conditions, including people with psychosis. This programme is designed to give mental health professionals without prior experience of CBT the academic and clinical skills to implement this approach in their work settings. The programme will develop participants? skills in CBT for anxiety and depression, and the application of these skills to individuals with psychotic symptoms. This programme bridges academic knowledge and clinical application. A primary aim is to help participants make links between theoretical knowledge of CBT and its application in clinical settings, and teaching sessions will include extensive case discussion. This programme will broaden the career options of participants by expanding their therapeutic competency and the range of clients with whom they are trained to work.
