Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Related Techniques - PSYP903

This unit provides theory and skills training in two psychotherapeutic treatment approaches for which empirical evidence is considered to be strongest, namely, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Instruction in mindfulness-based treatment approaches, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), is also provided. Efforts are made to ensure that students have the opportunity to observe and practice the application of these different approaches in effecting attitudinal and behavioural change. Students are instructed in the techniques underpinning each modality and are asked to reflect on the similarities and differences between the respective approaches, the sorts of presentations most likely to benefit from each approach, and whether and how these treatments might be integrated with each other and with other treatment approaches.
