About this course
CBT is a treatment that is recommended by NICE guidelines for a number of psychological and emotional difficulties in children and young people.
However, it is also an active therapy that requires a fairly high level of ongoing engagement on the part of children, young people and families.
There are a number of reasons why children, young people and families may be (or become) ambivalent about engaging in CBT; and this can lead to difficulties at all stages of treatment.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) ideas have been applied very successfully across a range of presenting difficulties and with populations who at times find it difficult to engage with help. This course will provide an overview of MI theory and techniques, particularly highlighting and teaching skills in those techniques that might help a CBT therapist engage a young person in different stages of therapy.

This is one of the best training courses I have been on, the perfect mix of gaining new information, trying out new skills and thinking about application of this learning to practice. I didn't get chance to say thank you to the trainers but would really like to say thank you for such a brilliant day.
