Half of all mental health issues start in childhood and we all have a collective responsibility to support children's emotional, psychological and social well-being. Early targeted intervention is key to avoiding long term mental health issues. CBT is one of the most effective tools in developing resiliency and fostering emotional well-being.
The course will help to develop your own skills and knowledge of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and enable you to apply the tools of CBT to develop children and young people's emotional wellbeing in a range of settings.
Aims of the course:
• Understand how emotional, psychological and social well-being impacts on children and young people’s lives.
• Understand the key factors of building resiliency.
• Understand the main theoretical concepts underpinning cognitive behavioural therapy.
• To be able to run a short intervention programme using the tools of CBT with children and young people.
• To be able to apply the key concepts of CBT within your professional role working with children and young people.
