St Christopher’s Education is pleased to offer this three day foundation programme which has been developed by our CBT specialists.
This three day course provides foundation level understanding of CBT and equips participants with the knowledge and understanding required to underpin new skills to incorporate into everyday practice.
Participants will gain a greater understanding of the role CBT has in reducing and managing distress, anxiety, panic and depression. The course will also cover CBT approaches which enhance the management of physical symptoms such as breathlessness, pain and fatigue. Training will involve a combination of presentation and discussion, demonstration and experiential learning.
City & Guilds Accreditation
We offer City & Guilds Accreditation to consolidate and evidence new learning. Participants complete and submit a series of written responses to questions several weeks after day three of the course. We encourage a draft for comment and support before the final submission. In total the written assignments should take one hour per week for the duration of the course.
Learn about the links between emotions, thoughts, feelings and the physical condition and the purpose of assessing problems using this framework
Be encouraged to develop and apply this new knowledge in a series of CBT related activities linked to their clinical experience
Consider and identify patients and carers who may benefit from CBT.
By completing the accreditation process participants will:
Demonstrate foundation level knowledge of the CBT model and its applications in long term or life-limiting conditions and at the end of life
Consolidate and reinforce their knowledge and achieve City & Guilds accreditation.
Who is it for?
This course will benefit any professional working in a health care setting with people with long-term or life-limiting conditions or who are approaching the end of life.
The course is particularly useful for those working with people with cancer, heart failure, advanced respiratory disease, continence or neurological conditions and would be most suited to:
senior and junior doctors and nurses
allied health professionals
Previous knowledge of CBT is not required to attend this course, however prior reading around the subject will prove beneficial. Those opting for City & Guilds Accreditation must be engaged in clinical practice in order to apply and develop their new skills in the gap between days two and three of the course.

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.
Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:
i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education
ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
