Online course description

In studying this course you will learn some important components of what it is to be a practitioner who can integrate knowledge and skills from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approaches into your current practice. In short, you are becoming a CBT informed helper who can make safe decisions about when to work using knowledge and skills from CBT and when not to.

You will learn about how CBT practitioners make sense of and use of therapeutic relationships and skills. In addition, you will analyse interviewing and assessment skills. You will then go on to determine how you may integrate this knowledge and skills into your current professional practice.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, you will be able to:

  1. Evaluate your participation in self-development and peer supervision activities
  2. Identify how the learned skills and insights from CBT approaches can be integrated safely within your current practice
  3. Critically analyse the use of relational and interviewing skills in work with others that is informed by CBT approaches.

Course content

During this course you will work with other learners in order to explore the importance of the therapeutic relationship within CBT approaches. You will discover the crucial role that your own self-awareness and self-development has in this.

You will learn about the different skills (informed by a CBT approach) that may be employed in forming and developing therapeutic relationships and also in interviewing, assessing and formulating with people.

In addition, you will have the chance to work with peers to critically reflect on your own practice and assess how the above ideas and skills maybe appropriately and safely integrated within your own current practice.
