across all levels of CBT
to develop an effective and evidence based CBT service
Our goal is simple: To provide high quality competency-based training and supervision in CBT
We have a wealth of experience in providing skills-based training and supervision in both high-intensity CBT and low-intensity CBT (LiCBT)
We have a track record of producing competent, 'work ready' health professionals with our training, in Low and High Intensity CBT. We have adapted IAPT training from the UK to Australian health settings. This includes specialist CBT therapist training, CBT coach training (NewAccess) and other adaptions. We have successfully adapted our CBT curriculum to primary care, children & young people, older persons and other mental health issues
CBT-based clinical supervision is key to embedding competencies into mental health services. In addition it has a clear clinical governance role and safeguarding function for organisations, staff and service users. Regular supervision ensures skills acquisition and fidelity to evidence based practices. We also provide intensive training for clinical supervisor training for mental health professionals
We offer expert advice and scaffolding for organisations aiming to develop evidence-based services and systems. This includes frameworks for flexible service delivery, supervision, clinical governance and risk management.
