A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)
Depression is the common cold of mental health; it is widespread and we haven't been good at treating it, until now.
Depression has a range of insidious and unpleasant effects including sadness, behavioural apathy, biological aspects including sleep disturbance, cognitive deficits of concentration etc, and an impaired ability to function socially. Little wonder then that it causes such distress. This course covers the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy solutions to depression.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of this course.
Average Presentation rating: 96%
Average Relevance rating: 96%
