Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Anxiety Disorders

Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Anxiety Disorders PGCert produces psychological therapists who are competent in the practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for patients affected by psychological disorders. Its main focus is on the treatment of anxiety disorders. This course offers CBT practitioner level training designed for healthcare and related professionals who have already completed introductory and/or intermediate CBT training (or equivalent) and have some supervised experience of providing CBT. The course enables students to develop competency in CBT for anxiety disorders and become a skilled practitioner in this therapeutic approach. The focus is on treating patients with diagnosable anxiety disorders such as Social Phobia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), etc. The emphasis is on high-intensity, individual CBT rather than guided self-help, psycho-education or lower intensity anxiety management.
