 Cognitive Therapy Summer Training Institute

 
Winner of the Colin Woolf​ Award 2007

​Treating psychiatric problems can be challenging but fortunately there are effective psychotherapies that can help. In cognitive therapy, people explore and identify how attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and automatic thoughts can produce and maintain unpleasant moods. The first step towards change involves becoming aware of self defeating thinking styles and behavioural patterns. The next step involves experimenting with new ways of looking at things and/or trying out new patterns of behaviour. The focus in this short term treatment is on the here and now.
