1-Day CBT Primer 17–301–01
Enhance your understanding of MBCT by familiarizing yourself with the foundations of CBT. This is the second module of our Core MBCT Facilitation Certificate Program.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is the most empirically supported psychological treatment for a wide range of disorders including depression and anxiety. It has also been shown to prevent relapse.
In this hands-on, skills-oriented workshop, participants will acquire a few basic CBT tools that they can integrate into their own general clinical practice. Relevance to mindfulness will be addressed.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) combines the tools of CBT with mindfulness practices. Both modalities help to increase awareness of thoughts, emotions and behaviours, allowing for the development of new responses to difficulty (challenges that arise). A solid background in CBT is an important underpinning of MBCT.
Participants Will Learn
• The principles and practices of CBT
• How to apply the tools of CBT to stress, depression and anxiety
• An introductory grounding in CBT and its relationship to MBCT
