Mental Health Professionals

Whilst CBT is commonly referred to as the treatment of choice for depression and anxiety, many practitioners do not have the opportunity to receive comprehensive training in this mode of therapy. Making CBT training more accessible to mental health professionals, will in turn make this evidence-based treatment more readily available to people seeking professional help for mental health problems.

In addition, whilst CBT is a style of therapy that is effective, it is open to being delivered poorly, in a somewhat simplistic and mechanical manner, and there can be many misconceptions among mental health professionals about what CBT looks like in real-world clinical practice.  CBTs WA is dedicated to offering practical, clinically applicable, high quality training in CBT, that reflects the truly creative, rich and diverse nature of this therapy.

CBTs WA provides training to mental health professionals or people studying towards a career in mental health.  All trainings meet AHPRA continuing professional development guidelines.  Organisations can recruit CBTs WA to run trainings ‘in-house’ for their staff or members, at a time that is suited to the organisation.

 

The following training topics are available through CBTs WA.  These are separated into CBT Fundamentals (introductory level) and CBT Extension (advanced level) trainings. Click on each title to find out more.
