Course Description

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of many mental health conditions. It is therefore one of the most commonly used therapies in the private and statutory sectors. CBT is based on the theory that it's not events themselves that upset us, but the meanings we attach to them.

This course is useful for those who may be working in the statutory or voluntary sectors with those who have mental health issues. Nurses, counsellors, prison officers, probation workers, psychotherapists and other mental health workers may find this course invaluable for useful skills and therapeutic interventions.

This programme is designed for people who wish to gain an understanding of CBT.

The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.
