1. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD Awareness: Raise Awareness And Manage OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a very common, chronic and an enduring disorder in which a person has irrepressible and recurring thoughts or obsessions and behaviours that they feel compelled to repeat.

From cleanliness and evenness, through to obsessive perfection and constant checking, the course defines OCD as a neurological brain disorder and delves into greater depth on how the brain activity is changed when OCD sets in.

From the concept of compulsions, the course details the various forms of compulsions, the development cycle of OCD and elaborates on how OCD develops into a vicious cycle of thought repressions and compulsions and how people with OCD get stuck in that cycle. The course goes into how OCD can be managed better and what we can do in day-to-day life to make the disorder more manageable.

A section is dedicated to the effects of OCD on children, as most occurrences of the disease start from an early age, and how a child with OCD can be helped with the different types of cognitive and behavioural therapies to improve their condition.

The fact that the person suffers occurrences often knows that his or her behaviour is abnormal and hence tries to contain it makes it sometimes difficult to diagnose. This often creates anxiety within the sufferer since it does not feel natural to the person. The course suggests possible treatments using various techniques and the limitations of each of these as well as cognitive therapy to help effectively confront the thoughts rather than suppressing them.

Finally, the last module moves towards how you can help your family and the wider society with the insight you have gained in the topic. It provides ways to spread awareness about the disease along with prevention techniques and methods. It also gives general tips on how to handle friends and family suffering from OCD so as to keep them from harming themselves and others surrounding them, as well as offering helpful supporting groups and charities for sufferers.

Who would benefit from the course?

The primary purpose of this course is to provide all the information you need with reference to understanding, dealing with, the diagnosis and treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

2. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT: Understand Your Feelings And Thoughts Through CBT

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.

This course is ideal for those that are either complete beginners to the field of CBT and are considering making a career change to become a CBT Therapist, with the aim of getting an insight and understanding of CBT, or existing CBT Therapists, teachers, coaches or parents looking to reinforce their knowledge or to pick up some new skills. This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career in CBT, though are unsure if you want to commit yourself financially and time wise to a full CBT qualification.

3. 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.

4. Mindfulness Based CBT: Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

5. Psychoanalysis: Learn The Common Elements Of Psychotherapy

Discover how psychoanalysis was developed by Sigmund Freud and continues to evolve with those who have come after him. You’ll learn about the studies undertaken to prove its effectiveness, how it is used to help clients, and the qualities and training needed to become a professional Psychoanalyst.

From the course, you will first learn about psychotherapy and the differences between this and similar practices. You’ll explore the common elements of psychotherapy and the various ways it can help clients in either one-to-one, couples or group therapy settings and how the clients themselves can get the most from their sessions. You will also learn what the most common forms of psychotherapy are and the differences between their approaches.

The course focusses on psychoanalysis – a method of psychotherapy that places significant emphasis on the contents of the unconscious mind. You will discover what psychoanalysis is and how the practice is used to help clients solve their psychological and emotional problems.

As the founding father of psychoanalysis, it is important to understand the work of Sigmund Freud. From the Psychoanalysis Certificate Course, you learn about his life, beliefs, popular and lesser-known theories, and the legacy he has left in the fields of psychology and psychiatry.

The course explains Freud’s theory of Psychosexual Development and the five stages of life that everyone goes through, from birth to becoming a young adult, and how others are opposed to this idea. You’ll also learn about Attachment Theory and how this affects child and adult relationships.

Although psychoanalysis may have begun with Sigmund Freud, it certainly didn’t end with him. This course looks at the people who came after him and the ways in which they have added to his theories on personality and development with their own concepts.

As with most types of therapy and counselling, psychoanalysis has its fair share of naysayers. The course takes a candid view of modern criticisms and to what extent these points may be considered valid, as well as offering counter arguments. You will also learn about the importance of self-reflection within the role of a Psychoanalyst.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?
