Please note that we are only providing virtual workshops at the moment. However, our online workshops have the same experiential activities as offline courses, such as role-play, clinical discussions, video presentations, and interactive lecturing.
In the fundamentals of CBT workshop, participants will learn the history, development, generic theory, and basic techniques of CBT. Participants will be guided in a step-by-step fashion to understand CBT’s philosophical way of viewing psychological disorders. Furthermore, the trainer will collaboratively teach basic CBT techniques in detail along with clinical examples to sharpen participants’ understanding. Within the 27-hour course, we will ensure that participants will get the most out of the materials by providing QnA sessions during the workshop and also in between workshop sessions through Google group. Participants can ask any questions related to the workshop topics or other questions about CBT. This way, participants are provided an opportunity to sharpen their understanding about recent topics.
Our core workshop's purpose is to strengthen the understanding of CBT's concept in common psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety and personality disorders.
CBT for Depression and suicidality
Learn the fundamentals of CBT to help patients with depression and suicidality. You will learn how CBT examines the mind of patients with depression through a cognitive triad theory. Also, in this workshop, you will augment the application of the cognitive model for depression, learn basic strategies, the structure of therapy, and how to deal with hopelessness and suicidality.
CBT for Stress and Anxiety Disorders
Learn the fundamentals of CBT to help patients with stress and anxiety disorders. You will learn the biological psychology of stress and anxiety to further understand its physiological mechanisms. Moreover, you will also learn about the cognitive model of anxiety and apply CBT techniques in anxiety disorders, including specific phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, PTSD, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
CBT for Personality Disorders
Learn how to apply CBT techniques in patients with personality disorders (PD). You will learn to conceptualize personality disorders through the Cognitive Conceptualization Diagram (CCD). Most importantly, you will also learn one of the critical elements in CBT to deal with the therapeutic alliance in patients with PD. As PD is considered challenging to work with, the therapeutic alliance is very crucial amongst other CBT techniques. Moreover, you will have interactive discussions about negative beliefs in personality disorders, modifying core beliefs, and working with schemas and modes.

You will receive materials from both the nutritionist and CBT therapist, and the combined materials are expected to increase the rate of therapeutic success with your clients. Materials include the epidemiology of eating disturbances, assessment, brain and behavior, cognitive model, treatment plan, coping with hunger, scheduling healthy eating, and stress related to eating disorders.

You will learn how to apply CBT concepts in challenging patients such as schizophrenia and substance use disorders with lower levels of functioning. Furthermore, you will learn how to conceptualize, manage cases , and apply indirect CBT techniques for patients and their support system. The goal is to enhance your patient's "adaptive belief" to enhance their daily functioning and perform better in society.
CBT in the Workplace
Does CBT also work in organizational settings? How can we effectively use a limited session of CBT to help employees? How many sessions exactly is CBT recommended for employees within organizations? These are a few questions that will be addressed in this special workshop. CBT is often used in organizational settings as a form of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Growing evidence shows that the use of CBT in organizational settings enhances the psychological well-being of employees. You will learn how to conceptualize treatment plans in the organizational setting with a limited amount of time and how to use resources in between sessions, such as tele-sessions and messaging applications to booster sessions.
