3 Reasons to Study a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Course
January 26, 2018 / Sharnie Carter
It may seem like a bit of a mouthful to say, but a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course is a great choice to study.
There are many types of therapy to start a career in, but here’s our top 3 reasons why this is the type of course for you:
Choice of courses
There are different types of courses to study depending on your ability and interests.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT Level 3 and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT Level 4
courses cover the basics such as
- an introduction to CBT
- recognition of certain behaviour
- behavioural techniques
- experiments and much more.
The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness Level 3 however, also includes the study of mindfulness and how it translates and benefits the application of CBT.
Depending on the type of career you want to take and your current ability, there will be a course that suits all of your requirements.
Variety of Career Paths
Although it may seem like a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course is primarily for those who want a career in therapy or counselling, the knowledge and skills that this course provides can be translated into many career paths. For example:
- Prison Officers can use this course to understand the behaviour of some inmates and why they do certain actions
- Teachers can learn to understand children better and adapt their learning styles to suit the needs of the children
- Counsellors can use this course to assess people’s behaviour and retrain them to behave differently for a more positive outcome
