This course is suitable for all professionals who see patients with mental health problems, including psychiatrists, nurses, GPs, IAPT workers, psychologists, counsellors and other therapists. No prior experience of CBT is needed in order to attend.

Anxiety affects one in six individuals, and is very commonly found alongside other mental and physical disorders. In daily
practice, anxiety is frequently under-recognised and under-treated. For problems such as generalised anxiety, panic
disorder and phobias, NICE recommends cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) as the most effective intervention in both
primary and secondary care settings. This workshop teaches you how to help patients modify unhelpful thoughts and
behaviours that are inadvertently maintaining their anxiety. It will also help you to decide when to refer patients for joint

or further working by other professionals within or outside of your own clinical team.


Content includes:
• CBT Overview: What is it? Who is suitable?
• Clinical assessment of 'stress' and anxiety
• NICE guidelines for anxiety
• CBT for generalised anxiety disorder
• Graded exposure for phobias and obsessive
compulsive disorder
• Cognitive therapy for panic disorder
• Facilitating motivation for change
• Using self help resource
