At the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences within the University of Southampton, we offer a range of CBT training courses to help you gain the credentials to provide this type of service.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a collaborative and evidence based psychological treatment. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT for a range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, psychosis, and personality disorders.
CBT enables us to understand the relationships between our feelings, thinking, behaviours and environment, and the ways in which these can become problematic. With an understanding of how mental health difficulties have developed and are maintained day to day, we can then support people to make changes if they so chose.
At the University of Southampton, we have a proven track record of providing effective CBT training. We are passionate about delivering high quality teaching, attending to the evidence base, service user involvement, and student support.
Our CBT training programmes are highly flexible. Whether you are new to CBT or an experienced clinician wishing to develop specialist skills, you can select modules to meet your particular training needs. We appreciate that you are likely to be juggling work, training and other commitments. For this reason we also offer flexibility in the length of time taken to complete CBT training courses.
