Postponed event: new date to be announced soon

This training is an introduction to cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). It will 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 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.

This training will offer professionals working with children, young people and families a foundation of theoretical understanding of what CBT is, and guidance on how to further their knowledge and clinical skills through signposting to specific CBT courses, depending on participants areas of interest.
