An introduction to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
What IS Cognitive Behavioural Therapy? A overview of CBT will be presented, illustrated by an interactive experience.
A focus on unhelpful beliefs and thinking processes
What beliefs do we carry that generate distress?
What can we think instead that could be more helpful?
How might we interact with our client to aid more helpful thinking?
How can we help our client think in a way that better supports them?
Members are invited to bring their own experiences to aid their work with clients
Working with emotions effectively: For example:
How can we work with difficult feelings such as anger or anxiety? What sort of techniques might help?
Getting in tune with our body. What physical sensations might be an indication of how we feel?
Creative exercises, discussion and videos will be employed here.
Working with behaviour: What can we do to effect change in our life?
We will explore possible actions our clients may utilise. Members of the group will be invited to share techniques that may have helped themselves or their clients in the past.
Integrating thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physical reactions
General discussion and feedback. For example, how might the learning of the day be carried forward into everyday practice?
Suggested websites and books.
