CBT Training Syllabus: over 8 Tuesday evenings from 7.00 – 9.30.   Optional sit in on existing training.   New course commences August 2018

It is organised by the Kent College of Hypnotherapy.  The training is designed to be an addition to existing counselling or hypnotherapy training. You will receive a Diploma in CBT outlining your skills and knowledge from the Kent College of Hypnotherapy.

Changing  Negative Habits & CBT

We will be looking at the way underlying thought patterns and our rules affect us.   There will be an introduction to the CBT model including a typical session and an overview of Cognitive Behavioural Approaches and how this can be used on its own and with other therapies.   This session will focus on habits and behaviours and is suitable for use with children as well as adults.   By the end of the session you will be able to identify, analyse and evaluate automatic thoughts.  Discuss and use a DTR form so that you can identify alternative thoughts and be able to assess how this may change behaviours and emotions.

Evaluation and Communication

Clear communication skills using CBT and also Neuro Linguistic Programming will be shown together with the use of effective questioning techniques.  There will be plenty of practice on working with each other on your own thoughts and case histories may be used instead of personal issues.  We will be using Assessment forms to evaluate progress; and also a Depression and Anxiety Inventory.  Cognitive parts therapy and NLP approaches will be included with the CBT.

Rules & Assumptions and stress factors.

We often make rules and assumptions for ourselves (Intermediate beliefs and Rules) and this puts unnecessary pressure on us and stress.  You will be able to identify these beliefs and evaluate the evidence of either your own assumptions or a case history and practice how these can be modified so that new more useful rules or beliefs can be put in their place.  This also includes thoughts like should and ought and the pressure and stress this produces in our lives.  We will be Planning for Successful  Outcomes and to  Eliminate self-sabotage.  Time Management is also included as we often put off or avoid to help us feel safe.   Life Coaching skills will be included.

How our Core Beliefs impact on our lives

We will be discovering and working with core beliefs.  These can impact on our health, wellbeing and achievements, so we will be using strategies and drawing from other techniques such as NLP and Psychology of Selves as well as CBT approaches.  There will be a demonstration of a typical session using these approaches and looking at ways of addressing negative core beliefs.  By the end of the session you will understand how to help your client make these changes and gain insights to various problems and illnesses.

 Coping strategies, Solutions and Outcomes

CBT Techniques and coping strategies will be used to identify a problem and change it into a goal to provide solutions and develop activities.  There will be included additional CBT therapeutic techniques and treatments including Converting a client’s problem into a SMART goal in harmony with their values and identify problem solving techniques using various worksheets.  You will learn how to construct and develop a coping card activity chart and monitor chart.   There will be a summary of the whole of the course.
