About this course

The course is for people who wish to learn more about CBT. It is a form of talking therapy that combines cognitive therapy and behavior therapy. It aims to help you apply these techniques to everyday situations. It would be suitable for a complete beginner who wants a different way of approaching the stresses and strains of modern life. This course is designed to help you develop your knowledge of CBT and is not a replacement for professional therapy

How will I be taught?

The course teaching will be a mix of tutor presentations, student exercises and skills practise in small groups and group discussions. Students are expected to participate fully in class discussions and draw upon their own life skills and experience. All students will be asked to keep a learning journal throughout the course and to complete some homework outside class.

Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level and course suitability. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course and tutors will give you written or verbal feedback after monitoring your progress.

You will receive regular feedback from your tutor throughout the course, as and when appropriate. At the end of the course you and your tutor are asked to assess the progress you have made.

What do I need to bring with me?

Handouts will be provided and you are advised to bring a pen and paper to make notes. Whilst there may be opportunities for you to practice the skills taught in class with fellow learners, you will get the most out of the course if you do practice at home as this will help you apply the skills to your everyday life.

What can I do next?

Guidance from your tutor will be given.

What do I need to join the course

Everyone is welcome to join the course
It is an introduction to learn how you think about the things going on in your life - your thoughts, images, beliefs and attitudes (your cognitive processes) - and how this impacts on the way you behave and deal with emotional problems. It then looks at how you can change any negative patterns of thinking or behavior that may be causing you difficulties. In turn this can change the way you feel. These techniques can then be applied to any stressful situation such as workplace or exam stress.
