To understand the basic cognitive-behavioural models for major depressive disorder
To understand basic cognitive-behavioural intervention strategies
To equip the participants the skills to conduct a typical CBT session in a collaborative manner
to develop a shared case formulation
The participants will be able to identify negative automatic thoughts, cognitive biases, and safety behaviours and how they interact with emotions
Research in the medical and behavioural sciences and information about cognitive behavioural therapy and pharmacological treatments for mental disorders is rapidly changing. Furthermore, medical and health concerns are unique to each individual and require individual attention and care.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) holds a unique status in the field of mental health – CBT is effective for many psychological problems, is relatively brief, and is well received by individuals
A large volume of research has been published regarding CBT, including a number of well-designed studies involving people in “real world” clinical settings. Yet despite this large base of evidence, information about CBT has not been well communicated to consumers, families, and providers of health care. Consequently, CBT is not being used as extensively as the research would warrant.
Many individuals (consumers, families, and professionals alike) are unaware of the effectiveness of CBT for different problems. There is additional uncertainty about the effectiveness of different formats of CBT
CBT is attracting increasing levels of interest from health care professionals, consumers and families. A variety of factors may contribute to this rise in popularity. First, recent decades have seen a growing recognition of the high prevalence rates of many psychological problems. Mental disorders negatively affect the quality of life for the person as well as his or her family. Many of these disorders (including depression, anxiety) have been shown to respond well to CBT. we face increased demands for efficient and cost-effective health care services. CBT has the benefits of being structured, effective and, in most cases, relatively brief. Third, people are increasingly interested in alternatives to medications.
the strategies and skills of CBT can be applied to many of life’s challenges. The strategies and skills a person acquires to manage depression, for example, can also be used to manage chronic pain or maintain exercise. The effectiveness of CBT in changing and maintaining changes in behaviour makes it very important to consumers and to health care services.
