Course Summary

Course Summary

Each of us has a set of everyday personal strengths which we play down or perhaps don’t even notice because they seem ordinary, ho-hum and of little consequence.

Resilience is our ability to stay present to and recover from life’s difficulties and challenges. It includes our capacity to make the best of an unwanted situation, and to cope with the stress associated with finding the strength to do so.

Research indicates that resilience-building efforts can improve both individual and interpersonal wellbeing, all whilst lessening the risk of moods such as depression and anxiety.

You’ll use these and other insights to discover and experience the fundamentals of engendering much more in the way of curiosity and resilience in the helping work you offer others.
Drawing on practical insights, evidence-based practice and the lessons from neuroscience which help us develop our resilience ‘muscle’, we will consider what protects our own and others’ wellbeing when we navigate the challenging experiences which accompany everyday life.

We are in support of promoting equality, diversity and inclusion by our mode of delivery (i.e., monthly Friday evening and Saturday day block sessions), as this allows a broader range of working professionals to participate. It is possible, and indeed encouraged, to apply for this training on what is termed a ‘distance-learning’ basis, which permits individuals who reside outside the UK to participate alongside those who are within commuting distance of our campus.

This course is designed to give you the opportunity to develop and demonstrate an understanding of both the art and science of strengths-based approaches in CBT, particularly as viewed through the lens of relevant neuroscientific underpinnings. These approaches will be framed as adjuncts to evidence-based practice; as such, an emphasis will be placed on the specific maps to what is known as ‘classic’ CBT.

You will develop and demonstrate skills which can be directly applied in clinical and other helping settings, offering what tends to be a more positive experience than helping endeavours which are solely problem-focused in their nature. It is anticipated that embracing this perspective will inform and enhance your existing competences, all by means of experiencing, first-hand, the distinctions involved in adopting a strengths-based approach.
