The course attempts to demonstrate the leading evidence-based treatment – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and to aid those who seek a path in the psychotherapy domain to integrate this sought-after tool in their practice.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that facilitates people to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behaviour and emotions. It is evidence based and has been researched extensively.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy strives to replace the instinctive negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, such as depression and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood and behaviour. Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged and are replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can be used as a short-term treatment to help individuals learn to focus on present thoughts and beliefs. CBT is used to treat a wide range of conditions such as Addiction, Anger issues, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Eating disorders, Panic attacks and Phobias.
