    Live Observation & Practice - Makes this Different from Other Training:

    The workshop is highly practical.  Delegates will get the chance for live observation & skills practice (with a professional actor playing our client attending therapy). We discuss moment–to–moment decisions about the direction therapy should take - unpacking the therapeutic process with real-time demonstration & practice of skills. Plus, other diverse clinical material will be used to illustrate different presentations, real-world challenges & therapy pitfalls.  CBT with a relational base.

It is also an excellent recap for advanced level practitioners. Whether clinicians are counsellors getting their first exposure to CBT for trauma or seasoned practitioners wanting a refresher, this will satisfy professional training needs. No prior CBT experience necessary.
