CBT for Depression

Full Day Training
9am Registration, 9:30am Welcome and 4:30pm Close


Presented by Dr Paul Blenkiron, Consultant Psychiatrist, Tees, Esk & Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, depression is the 'common cold' of mental disorders and remains an important cause of disability across health services. NICE recommends Cognitive Behaviour Therapy as a key evidence-based treatment for mild, moderate, severe and recurrent depression. This is now being implemented across the NHS via 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. 

Please note the Andrew Sims Centre has a Reservation and Cancellation Policy.
