This course provides an introduction to group cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for menopause symptoms.

Overview: Cognitive behavioural based self-management skills are increasingly popular within physical health settings and have been demonstrated to be effective in helping women who are experiencing problematic menopausal symptoms. This course will help healthcare professionals to build confidence and skills to effectively support women who are interested in developing these skills themselves. The training will be delivered in a lecture and workshop format. Delegates will learn to apply their new knowledge and skills to facilitate self-management strategies within a 6 session group intervention, or working individually with patients.
Who should attend: This is a combined theory and practical training module aimed at doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals (e.g. applied psychologists and registered counsellors) who work regularly in the field of women’s health or within a primary care setting.

Please note, this course is for registered healthcare professionals only and it is important to be able to access clinical supervision when using psychologically informed principles with patients. You will need to provide your professional registration number when booking the course.

Fees: £475 (which includes a copy of Managing Hot Flushes and Night Sweats with Group CBT: An evidence based treatment manual for health professionals by Hunter, M.S. and Smith M (2015), Routledge Taylor Francis)
Booking: This course is now FULL. Another course will be organised early in 2021.
