The brain is a wonderful and powerful tool. We’ve all got one. It helps us to thrive physically, socially, and emotionally. But sometimes it can hold us back if our mindset has been clouded by things like past experience or negative self-image.
If you feel like this, doing something to help navigate negative thinking is vital for regaining courage and positivity. CBT is a short-term therapy that’s used to improve those with depression and anxiety disorders, but it can also be used to treat bipolar, OCD, eating disorders, panic, phobias, PTSD, schizophrenia, psychosis, addiction, and sleep problems.
For anyone interested in CBT, and whether it could help them, this course outlines the basics. It looks at what CBT is, how it works, and who will benefit from it. And by taking this course, you’ll discover useful resources that explain how to access CBT if you think it would help you.
It’s Monday morning and your boss has just emailed you asking you for a ‘chat’. Not what you want, especially at the beginning of the week. The last time you had a ‘chat’ it didn’t end well. So, this is clearly bad news… or is it? This is called distorted thinking, which is one example of what CBT is used to treat.
CBT stands for cognitive behavioural therapy, which is less complicated than it sounds. It simply combines cognitive therapy, which is the way we think (the brain), with behavioural therapy (our actions), to readjust the way we process information. It seeks to help you change the way you approach your thoughts, so you can clear your mind of negative intrusion and find a different solution.
Distorted thinking is something a lot of us can relate to, and it’s not easy to tackle. So, delivering information about ways to break out of that mindset needs to be straightforward and manageable. And that’s what this short course aims to do. It’s designed to give you the facts about CBT in a quick and memorable way, using clever animation, and relatable scenarios to help you connect with the learning. It’s also broken into small chunks, so it doesn’t overload you with information and lets you discover and remember everything you need at your own pace.
