By popular demand, CBT Australia will return in October 2017 to provide Hong Kong’s Health Alliance and Coaching Professionals the unique opportunity to master and consolidate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT in Action - 18th of October
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a school of psychological therapies based on the premise that it is not what happens that causes how we feel but how we think about what happens. While this is a simple concept to understand it is not always simple to put the theory into practice. With a strong empirical base, CBT is becoming one of the most effective psychological interventions now in use. It has been shown to be useful in coaching contexts with a current ground swell in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC)
Based on the approaches of Beck and Ellis, this workshop bridges the gap between theory and practice focussing on developing CBT skills. After outlining the underlying theory, the workshop will focus on putting CBT into action with clients. Participants will be taken through the steps in the CBT sequence with live and video demonstrations before the participants practice the skills. There will be time for questions to clarify and process the learning of skill.
At completion, participants will walk away with knowledge and tools that will enable them to integrate CBT into their practices.
