This 2-hour course on working with the issue of poor impulse control can be taken independently or as part of a larger, 42 hour, BPS Approved Certificate in Non-Diagnostic Psychological Problems: INTEGRATED CBT FOR COMMON LIFE CHALLENGES, consisting of 15 two-hour training modules and one two-day module. The Certificate is designed to enable delegates to apply Integrated CBT to a range of common problems important to both practitioners and their clients.
These common problems frequently create distress and substantially interfere with functioning for sufferers even though they are not diagnostic problems typically leading to referral to mental health services.
Integrated CBT is an evidence-based approach to tackling problems that addresses process as well as content issues in therapy. It includes 2nd and 3rd wave CBT ideas as well as evidence based “tips” from other therapeutic approaches, such as MI, SFT, REBT and others, specifically to address process issues such as motivation and communication difficulties.
We’ve decided to combine the power of integrated CBT with deeper understanding of non-diagnostic life challenges and this resulted in creation of this Certificate Course.
This Certificate is a series of bite-sized trainings (with the exception of the 2-day detailed training on procrastination) that will guide delegates through cohesive evidence based treatment plans or self-help programmes.
