This is an experiential one day workshop. Attendees will be offered the opportunity to examine the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the context of working with children and adolescents. Upon completion of this workshop participants can expect to have:
1. An understanding of the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
2. Consideration of the application of CBT techniques when working therapeutically with children and adolescents
3. Through group discussion attendees will be in a position to reflect upon the programme content and its application in working therapeutically with young people
This method of psychotherapy can facilitate individuals gaining a clearer insight into a perceived difficulty in their life. When thoughts and feelings promote anxiety and worry this method allows the individual to view the concern in a new light often eliminating symptomology of such feelings.
Participants will be given a certificate of attendance for Continued Professional Development (CPD) purposes.
