Cognitive Behaviour Therapy introduction - tools and strategies

March 14, 2019


Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) focuses on the role that thoughts play in regard to both emotions and behaviour, and advocates that change in thought processes can have a significant effect upon altering behaviours.  This is a goal-orientated and specific approach which often results in positive and meaningful change in a short period of time.  A range of evidence indicates that CBT is an effective intervention for supporting young people with a range of difficulties.


In this one day course, delegates will explore key CBT tools, strategies and opportunities to practice and apply these to case studies.  Delegates will gain knowledge of a range of CBT tools and strategies and how these can be used to support with individuals, small groups and a whole class.  We will also develop an understanding of using these tools to target not only those experiencing difficulties but also as a preventative approach to build resilience.


Key elements:

- Restructuring thought processes

- ABC (the CBT approach breaks a particular problem into three smaller parts: the activating event, negative beliefs, the consequences)

- Core beliefs


In this seminar Dr Jody Walshe will endeavour to meet the following objectives with delegates:

  • To outline the theory and principles understanding the cognitive model
  • To apply the cognitive model using case studies
  • To consider rationale, process and key considerations when setting CBT homework tasks
  • To enable delegates to practice key tools and strategies
  • To take away a set of resources and tools for use in the school/support context.
