This training day will cover the foundation of what cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is. It will also provide insight into CBT skills and competencies and why they are so helpful in supporting children and teenagers with their thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Research suggests that CBT with children is a very effective for helping with emotional issues and encourages self-esteem, resilience and well-being. NICE guidelines and the Department of Health and Education suggest that while CBT is an important evidence-based intervention, there is currently a lack of CBT training courses for professionals working with children.
