This course is suitable for all professionals who see patients with mental health problems, including psychiatrists, nurses, GPs, IAPT workers, psychologists, counsellors and other therapists. No prior experience of CBT is needed in order to attend.
Anxiety affects one in six individuals, and is very commonly found alongside other mental and physical disorders. In daily practice, anxiety is frequently under-recognised and under-treated. For problems such as generalised anxiety, panic disorder and phobias, NICE recommends cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) as the most effective intervention in both primary and secondary care settings. This workshop teaches you how to help patients modify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that are inadvertently maintaining their anxiety. It will also help you to decide when to refer patients for joint or further working by other professionals within or outside of your own clinical team.
