CBT skills

CBT top tips for clinicians!

I'd love to pass on reviews of workshops, books, research, and focus on the material that's clinically useful. It would be great if you could take away a new idea or technique that you could use straight away with your patients.

Competence in a CBT programme research by Dr Kate Sherrat.

Survey of trying to understand what is really helpful for the trainees

  1. At the start of the course most trainees desired more personal and professional confidence: want to believe in self and be less hard on self, compare the self less to others.
  2. CBT training is not the best choice if you want to be more confident in self: they have more NATS and less confidence!! ( at middle of course). Move from clear models to idiosyncratic approaches is difficult. Generally this confidence is better by end of course. Reflecting and rating tapes can undermine confidence.
  3. Students did report changes in a wide range of qualities, mostly knowledge; skills; self reflection etc. important skills were formulation, guided discovery and reflection.
  4. Supervision is biggest change agent. Tapes difficult but helpful. Learning from supervisors was important.
  5. During training students can experience altered thinking and perception; being more curious and thoughtful. Thinking about multiple things at same time.
  6. Trainees use training and self reflection in the therapy room. Self understanding can increase. CBT from inside good.
