Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that is commonly used to help people understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviours. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including depression, addictions, anxiety and phobias.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

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.

4. Advanced CBT : The Therapy Of Choice For Medical Practitioners 

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 that convince her she is not equipped with the necessary skills or confidence.

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 that people can afford. CBT is a ‘here and now’ therapy that concentrates on a negative feeling or behaviour led by a destructive thought pattern, and how to change this process to move the person’s life forward and beyond the behaviour.

A person’s distorted thinking pattern can bring an altered view of the world and this, in turn, can cause feelings of despair, depression, anxiety, frustration, and anger. CBT is a powerful therapy that can realign the poor thought patterns and therefore, improve the life of the sufferer in the long term.

Students will learn the many options that there are to fight and deal with depression, no matter how intensely they feel it, or how often they have suffered. Educating students in the importance of absolute individuality when assessing and deciding on a treatment plan for depression.

Covered in the course students learn about food, lifestyle, stress and life experiences and how they affect the brain chemistry. Then moving onto holistic health and the most up-to-date medical views on the topic.
