Cognitive therapy helps patients modify unhelpful patterns of
thinking. Behaviour therapy breaks the vicious cycle of doing less through
‘behavioural activation’ and mindfulness involves developing an awareness of
one’s own thoughts without becoming involved. In this workshop you will learn
how to use these techniques in everyday practice, in an individual or
multidisciplinary setting.

Presented by Dr Paul Blenkiron, Consultant Psychiatrist and Honorary Professor at Hull York Medical
School, aims to allow delegates to understand the basic
principles of CBT for depression. The course includes how to motivate patients
towards practical change using Socratic questioning, a personalised
formulation, thought records and activity diaries and troubleshoot common problems when applying CBT
