This innovative and comprehensive 19 day Certificate Course provides you with the skills to use the core principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Children and Adolescents.

The course consists of:

The course emphasises strong links between theory and practice with a particular focus on the development of practical skills used in the treatment of commonly occurring emotional and behavioural problems.

You will develop skills in assessment, formulation and treatment of mental health problems with particular emphasis on how these need to be adapted to take into account the cognitive and emotional development of the child, the culture and context of the child and family and the presence of neuro-developmental disorders such as ADHD, Learning Difficulties or Autism.

The course pays particular attention to the need to embed assessment, formulation and treatment in the family system and to include parents as co-therapists wherever possible. To support this work the course includes teaching on engaging and supporting parents and teachers to utilise CBT techniques to aid the development of a child’s social and emotional regulation, and to develop skills in the implementation of strategies to manage externalising behaviours.

The course also considers the impact of childhood trauma on the development of mental health problems and enable participants to understand the degree to which a history of trauma might need to be taken into account as well as the degree to which culture, religion and ethnicity need to be considered when adapting CBT for children and young people.
