Courses: General Introduction
Since 1987, the Centre for Stress Management has developed an integrated, modular programme of courses based on cognitive-behavioural and rational emotive behavioural approaches to stress management, counselling and therapy.The modular programme is sufficiently flexible to allow learners to design their own programme of training. Most modules i.e. primary or certificate courses, can be taken as individual workshops or put towards an advanced certificate or diploma programme. Within acceptable limits, students can study and attend courses at their own speed depending upon the time and the finances they have available. These training programmes can also be run in-house for organisations who wish their staff to attend the same course.
Our most popular programmes are the 2-day Primary Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Primary Certificate in Stress Management and the Primary Certificate in Health & Wellbeing Cognitive Behavioural Coaching. Health professionals wanting to gain more knowledge in cognitive behavioural therapy often complete the Certificate or Advanced Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Most certificated programmes involve pre-course reading/preparation and written work (e.g. Personal Programme Review) undertaken at home.
