Introduction to 10 Minute CBT: Depression and Anxiety
This workshop is an introduction to the use of simple and effective CBT techniques in brief consultations. Through practical exercises, participants will become familiar with the basic principles of CBT and learn how to apply this approach to common emotional problems, with a particular focus on depression, anxiety and panic disorder.
Participants will develop practical skills, which are easily transferred to ‘real-life' practice. The training throughout is based upon the use of realistic case examples and includes essential strategies for effective time management when using the approach in 10-minute appointments.
The training will also teach participants to develop collaborative relationships with patients, and how to facilitate ‘handover' of responsibility for solving problems from health professionals to patients.
