Led by Dr Paul Blenkiron, voted ‘Psychiatric Communicator of the Year’ 2016 at the Royal College of Psychiatrists Awards.
Depression is the ‘common cold’ of mental disorders and remains an important cause of disability across primary and secondary care health services. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence recommends Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) as a key evidence-based treatment for mild, moderate, severe and recurrent depression. This is now being implemented across the NHS via the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) programme.
Cognitive therapy helps patients modify unhelpful patterns of thinking, behaviour therapy breaks the vicious cycle of doing less through ‘behavioural activation’ and mindfulness involves developing an awareness of one’s own thoughts without becoming involved.
In this workshop you will learn how to use these techniques in everyday practice, in an individual or multidisciplinary setting.
