This course provides an introduction to group cognitive behaviour 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 virtual 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.
Virtual course format:

Delegates will have access to pre-recorded videos of the course lectures with PowerPoint lecture slides from 1 October to 24 October 2021. They can watch the lectures at a time convenient for them and they will be able to submit questions via the BMS website for discussion on the Zoom Q&A/group discussion day (there will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions on the day itself).

The course facilitators will then host the Zoom Q&A/group discussion day on Friday 15 October 2021 – please click on the link below to see the full virtual course programme. The day will incorporate directed group discussion, together with Q&A. This allows plenty of opportunity to clarify information in the lecture videos and reinforce learning.
