Depression is the ‘common cold’ of mental disorders and a leading cause of disability worldwide according to the World
Health Organisation. This workshop provides training in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for low mood. ‘CBT’ refers to
an effective group of treatments recommended for mild, moderate, severe and complex cases. Cognitive therapy helps
patients modify unhelpful patterns of thinking. Behaviour therapy breaks the vicious cycle of doing less through
behavioural ‘activation’. Mindfulness involves awareness – being able to see negative thoughts as ‘just’ thoughts without
getting involved. You will learn how to use these techniques in everyday practice, in an individual or team based setting.
• CBT Overview: What is it? Who is suitable?
